Crazies,

In the spirit of of the classic "GENERIC BASKETBALL SIGN" sign recounted in a different thread, I submit the following ideas for your use at any future basketball game:

"I HAVE A SIGN!" (a classic)

"THIS SPACE FOR RENT"

"TABULA RASA"

"I HATE SIGNS"

"THIS SIGN FORMERLY PERFECTLY GOOD POSTERBOARD"

"I ARE HERE" (with a down arrow)

"THIS SIDE UP" (up arrow, dedicated to Zoubeard's special friend in Miami)

"OUR COLLEGIATE TEAM IS SUPERIOR TO YOUR COLLEGIATE TEAM" (inspired by the Onion)


and my favorites...

Network

or

Columbia

More Random in Cameron!

I'm sure that they'll all been done at some point.

Which is kind of the point.

This sign should up front and center until the Heels are ranked which sure will not be this year!!!

Whatever you wind up choosing, make sure you don't hold it upside down.:rolleyes:

Unless you hold the "this side UP" sign upside down. That would be great.

One of my favorite came from (I think) a baseball game, it was gigantic and said

"THE PEOPLE BEHIND US CAN'T SEE A DAMN THING"

Precisely. And maybe with an arrow that points down from the words (such that it is pointing up when the sign is turned upside down)

Brilliant!

I like.

I like THIS SPACE FOR RENT, and THIS SIDE UP.

I also like "_NC S_ _KS" or some easily guessed combination.

What about just random type that looks like latinesque..

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nullam ac nulla vulputate massa dictum viverra eget non dui.

I'm sure the talking-heads would talk about the Languages offered at Duke

I think everyone should have an upside-down 'marry me Zoubs' sign. We are a fist, not five fingers.

I'm pretty sure we've cheered at opposing players in other languages in the distant past.

Anyway, as a student attending a neutral site game I once tried a sign reading Eradicate Stupid Posters Now. It turned out dorkier than you could possibly imagine. Might work better in Cameron.

Of course, eradicating stupid posters is precisely my role as a moderator. Go figure.

I'm pretty sure we've cheered at opposing players in other languages in the distant past.

But it NOT being a language would make it a little ironic and funny... just to see who notices.

A couple of these were signs I had planned to bring for the UNC game.... Darn, now I won't feel as original. I have a couple more ideas left, to be revealed in about two weeks, though. Hopefully they can make this list some day.

What's a Viking worth these days?;) Maybe I can get one of the attorneys on the board to take the case on contingency?

Just don't make the signs late at night. And for the record, I like the second version best.

Viking Guy

Actually, no you may not. Either spelling is acceptable.

(although further research reveals that "ESPN" adopted the two M variant)

I take you up on the "sue me" and then you start looking for variations of the spelling. :eek: I see dueling dictionaries in our future.

Just make them all and hand them out to random people.

The Crazies could get existential:

"Who am I?"

"Why?"

"Why not?"

"Is life fundamentally absurd?"

First it was; W - The President
Then Holes fans made one; W - The Coach

Anyone familiar with these? Might be a southern or a conservative thing. Anyway, here's my idea for a new bumber sticker:

W - The Wimp

Anyone know what stickers I am writing about?

"ZOUBS MARRY ME!" written upside-down.

Then in smaller pint, right-side up at bottom: " (Aussie sign holder) --> "




Second thought:

"Duke - National Champions, 1927
- Durham Association of Sports Writers..."



Third:

"Please don't eject us Roy"
Go Presbyterian!


Fourth:

"Haiti sucks worse than Roy/NC@CH"

or "Roy: Losses /= Haiti "
(do not equal)

:cool:
