    I don't understand. No, really. I don't understand.
    In that case, you just need to watch this video of University of Phoenix students, led by an unusually large humanoid rabbit, performing the "Harlem Shake", while wearing red socks.

    That should clear up any confusion that you might have.

    I did as you asked. I watched. I'm less confused in the initial way that I was confused, and now I'm confused in an entirely different way. I promise you, I've given this some thought (well, not too much, let's just be real) and the only thing I can figure is that it's a gag gift from the school. Were they out of coffee mugs? Maybe it's a secret society thing (I DID just watch Zietgeist).

    UoP should get a football team together.

    Maybe a virtual football team?

    I've always thought students at online schools could play against each other in things like Chess and Go. But network-capable video games, sure, those too.

    Let's do it, Steve! I coach high school football in Texas, so I can be the coach.

    We will have to figure out eligibility issues and such.

    UoP Socks Update

    If you were not fortunate enough to get a complementary pair of University of Phoenix red socks, you can now order a pair here, but only if you have small or medium sized feet. The large/extra-large socks have sold out again, and UoP does not expect to get more until late April.

    No, this is not an April Fool's post. The red UoP socks really are available for those with small/medium feet.

    I don't know what size I got. I didn't pay that much attention. My wife ended up getting her socks about 2 weeks later. I don't know what size her socks were either...

    Nikki Sandoval, UoP 's Executive Director of Alumni Relations, handles frequently-asked questions in her "Ask Nikki" column for Phoenix Focus, an alumni magazine. It appears that the socks are now a primary topic of concern among UoP 's 700,000+ alumni, based on the February 2013 and March 2013 monthly issues.

    SOCKS?! I should have gone to University of Phoenix . I used to be a student at Excelsior College and all I got was a degree.

    Several schools have sent me stuff over the years. I have an umbrella from one school, a sleeve of golf balls from another, a wind-breaker, several tumblers, a dayplanner... One (Christian) school sent me a devotional book. I sold it on Amazon.com the same day I received it. :)
