Some Harvard grads shy away from dropping the H-bomb, demurely muttering about going to school "in Boston." Others, however, have no such qualms. For the die-hard Crimson crowd, there's a whole world of merchandise that could let an eager shopper plaster his home in reminders of fair Harvard.

The Harvard Coop offers Harvard garden gnomes, sippy cups (it's never too early to start), aprons (prerequisite for purchase: "Science and Cooking"), and Harvard-printed ribbons for wrapping it all up. Elsewhere, you can find a Santa ornament or a door knocker for broadcasting your Harvard pride to every passing solicitor.

But there's much more gear that Harvard has yet to offer. What about sunglasses or a board game? Some schools' fans can even purchase toilet seat covers.

If only Harvard didn't take itself so seriously.
