Beyond the natural state of ignorance that is Tennessee, when did it become illegal to display a drawing of a marijuana leaf on one's automobile? Did deputy Billy Earl Ray Joe Bob think smugglers are adorning their vehicles with pictures of their product?

And my family wonders why I don't visit the place of my birth.

While this may very well be true, anyone with a buckeye leaf placed on their car needs to be pulled over and asked about their motives.  In fact, I wonder about anyone who cares that much about college sports to become a true fan.  Especially anyone that never even attended the school, for that really doesn't make much sense to me.  I am only a sport spectator not a fan, don't ask me which college team I am rooting for, nor should you look at me like I stepped on your heart for not picking your (you never went to college anyway) team.

Luckily most college football fans don't give a shiat what you think so it's all good.

Also, how does that create reasonable suspicion to make a traffic stop?

Couple of things:

1. It is possible to like more than one sports team at a time. This is true with college sports

2. Some people are fans of a school before they go to college. Maybe that school didn't have the program they wanted or they couldn't afford to go there?

3. Some people might attach to a school because they don't have a professional team in their area.

4. Since, in your eyes, it is bad to root for a school that you didn't attend, is it bad to root for a professional team in a city that you never lived in? I'm from Toledo but I'm a Cleveland Browns fan.

If you are the fan of a school that you attended, that makes perfect sense.  But when your school is facing its biggest rival that weekend, don't be the douche who demands every person you see to pick a side.  Waiting for me to answer with your team or the rival so you can either yell 'woo!' or attack me only makes want to punch you.  If the end of the game has ever made you lose your temper, cry or wet you pants you need mental help.  Especially if you think I should have the same reaction as you.  I will not lose my temper, cry, wet my pants or tithe my money and time to the religion of sports.  I will watch a game every now and then, and enjoy it no matter the outcome.  No matter the bad call, I will boo the officials, no matter what uniform the injured player is wearing, I will hope for his/her recovery and any great play will be enjoyed for the feat that it was.  And yes, I do think it is ignorant to wear a 'GO C*CKS' t-shirt while barely able to read and raking the lawn of a USC Alum's yard.

When Miami is playing fsu, I don't give a sh*t what side you're on.  If you want to swing anyway, go right ahead and see where it gets you.  Other than that, go away and let me watch the game.  (If you're for the Orange, Green, and White, pull up a chair and grab a beer.)

People root for sports teams. You'll get over it. I agree no one should be a jerk about it but some people are asshats and this projects to everything in their life. That they happen to have a favorite team/school is simply a conscience and not the basis of their asshattery.

Also the entire "if you didn't go to that school you shouldn't cheer for their sports teams" is one of the more inane statements regularly made here on fark. Yea I am a tOSU FAN. No I did not graduate from there. I do happen to be a resident of the State of Ohio and some of my tax dollars go to support that school so you had better believe that if I feel like cheering for their athletics that I have just as much right to do as as anyone with a diploma from there. This holds true for any of the other state supported schools here as well.

Beyond that, there are no invalid reasons to follow any sports franchise/team/school/whatever anyway. If you enjoy watching them compete that is good enough and you do not owe any self righteous douchebag an explanation or validation of your fandom. It's just sports after all!

Ohio played Ohio State in 2010.

It was the one time I rooted for Ohio State to lose.

I put Ohio State first as a way to make a point. I'm one thing, but I'm also another

I wasn't a Rockets fan because UT never appealed to me. I never wanted to go there or BGSU because I wanted to get out of Toledo.

I live in New England. I'll cheer for Boston teams as long as they don't play Cleveland

Can you expand on this a little, cause I'm not sure if I understand your particulars.  Are you saying if you don't cheer for the team in your city/state, no matter what, you're a douche?

Example:  If you come from Ohio, but get transferred to Michigan for work (I know it's hard to believe as there would actually have to be jobs in Michigan) under what scenarios would you have to be a Michigan fan (no matter what, only if you weren't an Tosu alumnus, etc.).

I moved to North Dakota about a year and a half ago and have since become something of a Bison fan. Hometown team, they've been champs every year I've lived here (well, okay, twice), campus is down the street from where I work, blah blah blah.

Haven't lived in Michigan in sixteen years. Yet I will bleed maize and blue 'til the day I die. Wasn't terribly popular in the heart of SEC country, but them Bama boys realized they wouldn't stop being Bama boys if they moved somewhere else, so they cut me some slack. Moral of the story, be a fan of whatever the hell you want.

On-topic- as much as it gives me salmonella to not find fault with a Suckeye, what the hell is wrong with these cops? Even if the buckeye bears a passing resemblance to a pot leaf (which it kinda does), you're not gonna make a drug bust this way. Drug dealers don't exactly advertise their product Golden-Arches style.
