I was recently at a large theme park and saw shirts from fans of Ohio State and Michigan State. I know rivalries are supposed to be "good natured," but I don't feel that way towards people wearing such shirts. In fact, I immediately feel what might be called extreme animosity towards them. This makes me a little worried about myself. So I guess I was wondering how others feel when they see shirts or bumper stickers or whatever from opposing schools. Do you feel a sort of jocular and good natured competetiveness, or just cold antipathy? I think if Michigan starts winning again regularly I will feel better again, so there's that I suppose.
