Victoria Secret’s Hail to the Victors Michigan State T-shirt #FAIL

Maybe Victoria Secret needs to start reading after their awful oops written on a Michigan State t-shirt from the  PINK collection.

While the t-shirt says “Spartans” and is green and white underneath “Spartans” the shirt reads, “Hail to the Victors”… the motto of State’s arch rival University of Michigan.

The t-shirt was taken off the website immediately after CNBC sports-business reporter Darren Rovell tweeted: “The folks @VictoriasSecret have made a horrible Michigan error.”

Ashton Kutcher done tweeting after Joe Paterno controversial Tweet

The man who helped make Twitter famous has decided to stop tweeting. While Joe Paterno and the Penn State sexual abuse scandal has dominated headlines, apparently Ashton Kutcher doesn’t read the news. Upon hearing that the legendary coach was fired, Kutcher tweeted,
“How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste.:

Moments later hashtags #ThingsAshtonKutcherdoesntknow and #AshtonKutcherisanidiot began trending, and the Two and a Half Men star admitted he was not familiar with the story.

Kutcher defended his mistake, “As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more remorseful for all involved in the Penn St. case,” Kutcher tweeted.

Ironically, Kutcher and wife Demi Moore founded the DNA Foundation, which fights child sex slavery. Still, after the back lash of his Tweets, @Aplusk revealed in a blog post he will no longer be tweeting.

“I feel responsible for delivering an informed opinion and not spreading gossip or rumors through my Twitter feed,” Kutcher wrote in a blog post entitled “Twitter Management” on Thursday. “While I feel that running this feed myself gives me a closer relationship to my friends and fans, I’ve come to realize that it has grown into more [than] a fun tool to communicate with people.”

Reiterating that he’s “truely (sic) sorry if I offended anyone,” Kutcher explains although he will still post 140-character updates, he is turning the management of the feed over to his team at Katalyst Media “to ensure the quality of its content.”

Notre Dame tells high school they can’t use Fighting Irish mascot

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have picked a fight with  Kansas High School for using their mascot. Chapman Highschool has been using the Fighting Irish mascot since 1967, until the university sent them a cease and desist letter threatening legal action.

Chapman high principal Kevin Suther said, “Well when you get a letter from Notre Dame it gets your attention… For anything like stationary and school uniforms as long as its Chapman Fighting Irish, we are still the Fighting Irish.”

Chapman is still allowed to be the Fighting Irish but must change their mascot to be different than the Notre Dame leprechaun. The high school is used to change in the summer of 2008, the high school and town was destroyed by a tornado.

KU/ Auburn being called out for their mascots

College mascots beware! Both Kansas University and Auburn are under fire for their mascots. After the Auburn eagle crashed into a sky box at Saturday’s pregame, PETA is calling for the war eagle to be retired. 

PETA posted on it’s website, “Animals aren’t performers or party decorations, and they don’t deserve to be frightened, hurt or even killed just so we can have a momentary thrill.”

“In light of Spirit’s (name of eagle) disturbing accident, let’s hope the Tigers will be good sports and retire their animal mascots to sanctuaries, where they can live out their days in peace and safety.”

And now the Kansas Jayhawks are also coming under fire for their bird mascot. A Missouri town is deminading KU drop its Jayhawks mascot because of the Border War attack on Osceola, Missouri, — a Civil War raid by pro-Union Kansas “Jayhawkers” that destroyed the town.

The Osceola Board of Aldermen passed the resolution saying: “the celebration of this murderous gang of terrorists by an institution of ‘higher education’ in such a brazen and malicious manner.”

KU News Service Director Jill Jess responded: “A Jayhawk is a blue bird with a red head and a big yellow beak that wears boots. It would be hard to confuse it with anyone with terrorist intent, though we admit we have been terrorizing the Tigers on the basketball court for some time. Tigers have been known to kill people. Bears, too.”
