Fan pays $115K for ’12THMAN’ plate

Despite joining the SEC just one year ago, Texas A&M fans
are fitting right in
with the craziest college football fans in the
country
.

On Thursday, one Aggies fan paid $115,000 at an auction for the
rights to own a license plate labeled “12THMAN” for 10 years (after
which it can be renewed for $795), plus getting the honor bestowed
upon him or her at halftime of Saturday’s game between No. 6 Texas
A&M and No. 1 Alabama at Kyle Field. The winning bid crushed
the previous state record for the sale of a license plate, which
was $25,000 for “HOUSTON.”

Last year, the state of Texas passed a law allowing license
plates to contain seven letters, with My Plates — the state
customized license plate contractor — having the first rights
to them.

We just hope the winning bidder didn’t have to sell his or her
car to come up with all that money. Wouldn’t that be fitting?
