Harbaugh crowd sign on espn2 meaning?

Submitted by RED DAWN on January 11th, 2015 at 9:05 PM

On Gameday like show Championship Drive: Countdown there is a sign that says "Jim Harbaugh smells like teen spirt".  I assume it is an Ohio State fan trolling because they seem to be the majority of crowd. 

Any thoughts on what it means?

If they are referencing SF losing to Seattle and the rivalry between those teams, it's actually a pretty funny job of trolling.  

It's all good.  The program is in the hands of possibly the best coach in football.  The more successful Harbaugh is, the more he will be trolled.  Look at it as a positive.

I feel like that connection takes too many steps to get to for it to be a good troll job, if that's what it actually means. You need something that everyone would instantly think of instead of "Teen spirit...Nirvana...Seattle?....SF/Seattle rivalry??....HARBAUGH LOST TO SEATTLE!"

Grendel my man...always able to clear up confusing pop culture references. I read thru all the answers, many with very in-depth wiki about Smells Like Teen Spirit, but you are the only Mgouser who got the HunterP connex.

So, in the spirit that us Giants fans enjoy & appreciate the signs everywhere the Giants go, let us also agree that if signs like the Teen Spirit one, or perhaps "Jim Harbaugh likes Technology...and Stuff" become a "thing" we will laugh along, not pout or spout.

"Kathleen Hanna, the lead singer of the group Bikini Kill, gave Cobain the idea for the title when she spray painted "Kurt Smells Like Teen Spirit" on his bedroom wall after a night of drinking and spraying graffiti around the Seattle area. In his pre-Courtney Love days, Cobain went out with Bikini Kill lead singer Tobi Vail, but she dumped him. Vail wore Teen Spirit deodorant, and Hanna was implying that Cobain was marked with her scent."

So I was at the gym this afternoon and while I was changing this really old and really fat dude was changing next to me. So while I'm sitting on the bench between the lockers the old fat guy gets naked and then sees something on the floor and bends over so his ass was about 3 inches from the side of my head.

I mean what do you do when something like that happens? Do you say "hey dude-would you mind removing your naked ass from my ear? Not sure what the gym etiquette is but damn that was disgusting.

This seemed like the right thread to share that piece of human tragedy.
