I just saw a man on one of the landscaping crews in my neighborhood wearing a dirty and tattered ΑΦ sweatshirt. I really wanted to ask, but of course it is not my place. He may have found it at a thrift shop; he may have an ΑΦ relative (though I'd hope she didn't sanction him wearing it so) ...

That's where I went to college though I was a Sigma Kappa (a long time ago ) And my sis and my aunt were both Phi Mus at Transylvania University in Lexington, KY. Just thought it was kind of a cool coincidence

I see Greek stuff everywhere as I live in a college town with three local universities with greek systems. I live in Lexington which is host to both UK and Transylvania University and Georgetown College (about 20min out of Lexington).

Go Big Red! Who else has a mascot that looks like an over-grown Elmo

And yes, you are quite correct. I forgot to include EKU and Centre. Which sorority were you in at Western?

Saw a TON of "XYZ loves the Tide" and "XYZ loves the Tigers" buttons at the National Championship game (I may have been wearing one), but I thought this was pretty cool, written on a signboard fans could draw on:

Today as I was driving from Starbucks to work (like always), there was work being done on the pipes on the other side of the street. There was water on the street, and the way the water had rolled off one of the hills, it formed a perfect ΔΖ. Not my letters, but very cool and I wish I could have gotten a picture!

I found letters in the absolute last place I was expecting!

I sing with a local choir. Mostly we sing classical music, but we have an upcoming concert in March where we are singing Americana - Copland, Ives, spirituals, etc. One of the pieces we're singing is "Circus Band" by Charles Ives. The lyrics include the line: "When in after years we take our children on our knee, we'll teach them that the alphabet begins with D K E."

Guess what fraternity Ives was in...
