Piiinnnk is my favorite color...
Did you know that at the University of Iowa, the visiting football team's locker room is completely pink? The lockers, walls, carpet, doors, showers, sinks, urinals... everything. The thinking is that pink will have a calming effect on the players, perhaps causing them to lose a little bit of their aggression and thus not perform at optimal levels.
Personally, I think this is brilliant and would strongly encourage my own Fighting Illini to implement this strategy. I for one would be messed up in the head if I had to dress in such an environment. (I'd probably feel like a sniffly 7-year old waiting to see the pediatrician.)
Of course, there's at least one person at Iowa who's opposed to this tradition. (Must be a Michigan fan.)
