Spartan Stadium Go Blue Football

In this Sept. 14, 2013, photo, a skywriter's message reads "Go Blue," a reference to one of the colors of Michigan State's in-state rival Michigan, as fans arrive for an NCAA college football game between Michigan State and Youngstown State at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing, Mich. The words "Go Blue" written in the sky near Spartan Stadium before last weekend's Michigan State football game have sparked a fundraising campaign that's raising thousands of dollars to fight cancer. Westerman, a pilot, estimated it cost a University of Michigan supporter a few thousand dollars to needle Michigan State fans. In response, Westerman started encouraging people to donate some green online to the Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance. (AP Photo/Detroit News, Dale G. Young)
