The mascot for the college in my town is a tiger. Fans show spirit on the way to games by hanging a tiger tail out of their trunk. My husband recently told me that other schools do that for their rivals - showing that they've locked up the rivals mascot in the trunk. I never thought of it that way before because whenever I see a car with a tiger tail it is also plastered with stickers, magnets, and flags for the same school. And I had always thought of it as this family has so much spirit even the car's grown a tail. Now, I've begun to look at the tails a little differently. Which way do you show spirit? Do you display your school's mascot or lock up your rival?
