It won't take much for you to dress up as Britney and K-Fed.

My boyfriend and I are hosting a Halloween party. Can you offer any suggestions on a good costume for the both of us? I've never really been good at figuring out what to dress up as. What's been your best Halloween costume? -- Robin, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
I'm not one for buying my costumes at the store. I usually like to create my own concoction, based on what's popular. Sure, you could do what most chicks do, and wear lingerie and some form of animal ears, but how original would that be?
If you are going to dress like a celebrity, just make sure people can easily recognize you. I would go as a barefoot, pregnant, chain-smoking Britney Spears and have your boyfriend dress up as K-Fed. One of my friends last year dressed up as "Facebook" and had people sign his wall (his back). Another one went as a chick magnet and glued Barbie dolls all over his body. Whatever you do, just be original. And anything that gets laughs is always a plus.
Do you think Ohio State will go undefeated? -- Brad, Columbus, Ga.
Nov. 18 may be the closest thing we see to a playoff system. If Ohio State and Michigan go into that game undefeated, the victor will ultimately play in Glendale, Ariz., for the national title. Should the Buckeyes advance, my best guess is they will be meeting West Virginia. Ohio State is a tough team to beat this year, but if anyone can do it, West Virginia just might.
You know how a song comes out, and then it gets played over and over and eventually it makes your ears bleed? No matter how cool the song (SexyBack, London Bridge, anything by Rob Thomas) might have been at one point, it's just played out. With as much as you Noles do the Tomahawk Chop -- all game long, over and over-- how do you stand it? Surely it gets old! Believe me, it does for everyone else watching the game who's not a fan. -- Dan, Odenton, Md.
It's not like a school can release a new fight song or cheer every season, and expect the student body to know it when it comes on. Hell, it takes some students four years just to learn the part where they spell their school's name. It's called a "tradition" for a reason. A lot of schools have traditional cheers that are a little on the played-out side: Hang on Sloopy remixed with a spelling lesson, Rocky Top's ever-so-obnoxious "Wooooo," and Penn State's migraine-inducing Zombie Nation. So it appears the Warchant is in good company. I wouldn't say it gets old, but our arms do get pretty tired. Of course, I'd take an overused cheer any given Saturday, because even a played-out cheer sounds better than silence, or worse yet, booing.
