The iPod, the polio vaccine and ass text

Visiting Los Angeles this sum-
mer, I met Lisa Hallerman, who
claims she started the letters-on-
the-ass trend.
Apparently, when she was a stu-
dent at the University 18 years ago,
she worked at Moe's Sports Shop.
At the time, there were no
licensed sweatshirts, so they had
to iron on Michigan logos. One
day when she was bored, she saw
an iron-on Michigan transfer and
decided to put in on the back of
her sweatpants.
Her sorority sisters and other
girls immediately wanted their
own pair, and so she went into
business ironing Greek letters
and Michigan logos onto sweat-
pants. She expanded to boxers
that had a small wolverine wear-
ing a football uniform and helmet
and kicking a football. On one
cheek, it said "kick ass."
She sold them at football games
and estimated that she made
about $10,000 before graduation.
To this day she is prouder of
being known as the creator of the

trend than for her current job,
which is working as Vince Vaughn
and Owen Wilson's agent.
PUNIT MATTOO
Dear Apt. 609:
It's the same every night: I
make it back from the Daily to
University Towers at about 3 or
4 a.m.
I enter the elevator and press
5. The doors shut and the elevator
ascends. Without fail, it goes past
the fifth floor and onto the sixth,
where the doors open, leaving me
staring at you.
For a while, I just pushed the
button for the fifth floor and
waited for the doors to close. As
the semester wears on, though, I
wonder more and more who lives
behind your door. What are their

lives like? And at the risk of being
overdramatic, why am I delivered
there every morning?
This is my way of knocking on
your door.

A call to all

Write us and tell us about it.
Not watching the game in pro-

are warning students trav-
eling to Columbus for this
weekend's football game to
take cars without Michigan
license plates and to avoid
High Street.

yesterday not to con-
tinue its bid for the 2016
