Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

Missed the beginning of this exchange, but you'll get the point, I hope:

Airplane 345:
"We carry the University of XYZ men's basketball team."

Center:
"Ah, roger. I was just wondering about your call sign ... ."

345:
"We don't like it any better than anyone else."

Center (laughing) :
"Do [your players] wear pink uniforms?"

345:
"Don't go there, Center."

Center (resuming a serious tone) :
"Roger."

[pause]

"Twinkles Three Forty Five, fly heading 230, descend and maintain 4,000."
