Harvard, we have a problem. Just when things were beginning to look good in the PR department, the Ivy League school that gave us Mark Zuckerberg and eight presidents (or is it the other way around?) has laid a holier-than-thou egg (or oeuf, in Crimson-speak).

The Cambridge institution was riding high with the mostly favorable depiction in "The Social Network" and then the rise of superstar alum and Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. But now, on the eve of the annual Yale tilt, Harvard is selling sleeveless jerseys bragging "We Are The 6%" For you petty state schoolers, that's the acceptance rate at Harvard.

Nothing like hitting the third rail of populist sentiment by adding your own snobby take on the "We Are The 99%" movement designed to highlight the gap between rich and poor in this country. We get it, Harvard: You are the 1 percent, destined to go to Wall Street and "occupy" a locker at a tony Connecticut country club. Fore!

Oh but it gets worse. The site selling the jersey encourages fans at the game to "show off those guns." Please, please, please don't. The only "guns" worth showing off in Harvard history (besides maybe Fitzpatrick's) belonged to Teddy Roosevelt. Nobody wants to see Zuckerberg-types walking around in a "pinnie." (No offense, Mark! Share this story on Facebook!)

Look, Harvard has brought America some amazing leaders. It has a beautiful campus. And the burgers at Bartley's are epic. But try some self-deprecation, guys. "Occupy Yale" on the front is OK. But may we suggest something else on the back?

Like, say, "We Are The Winklevii."

Although Chad Ochocinco and the since released Albert Haynesworth got all the headlines, it's the other guy the Patriots signed this off-season who's struck a winning chord.

Andre Carter set a New England franchise record for sacks in a game with 4 1/2 in the Pats' 37-16 beatdown of the New York Jets last weekend. Carter is quietly tied for fourth in the National Football League with nine sacks, while racking up 38 tackles for the struggling Pats defense.

But Carter has been playing piano for a decade longer than he's been chasing after quarterbacks. The 6-4, 255-pound rusher can thank his mother for that. The Boston Globe reports it was Carter's mom who encouraged him at the tender age of five to take piano lessons.

"My mom made sure I practiced so that I wouldn't make a fool out of myself when the piano teacher came on Saturday," Carter told the Globe. "I loved it and I got good at it."

Carter's father, Rubin, was a defensive lineman for the late 1970's and early 80's Denver Broncos' legendary Orange Crush defense. Carter points out his old man also had the music gene.

"My dad played guitar," Carter says. "He could also jam. We listened to Quincy Jones, Anita Baker, Stevie Wonder, and Ray Charles. John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Harry Belafonte. It was good music. I love Frank Sinatra, Elton John, especially on the piano."

Although his parents inspired his taste in music, they didn't exactly want him to follow in his old man's footsteps on the gridiron; both had other ideas.

"My dad didn't want me to play football because it was a violent sport," Carter says. "He wanted me to play tennis or basketball. I remember him coming home hurt. My mom wanted me to be a model. She'd say, 'Look at your figure, you've got a nice figure.' But that ain't going to happen, mom."

The skills required as a pianist and defensive lineman are surprisingly similar in one respect: both demand good hands. "Piano is more at peace, D-lineman is more violent," he says. "If you don't have good hands, you won't get to the quarterback."

Carter went unnoticed on Monday as he played the baby grand piano at a Foxborough movie theater located at Patriot Place. The Pats defensive lineman played tunes from Mies Davis ("So What?") and Bruce Hornsby ("That's Just The Way It Is") without the assistance of sheet music.

Although he's in the football business now, Carter, 32, knows shelf life is limited in the NFL. So he's thinking about giving it a go in the world of music. "If I practice long enough and hard enough," he says, "I might come out with an album like [former Saints tackle] Kyle Turley or [former Yankees center fielder] Bernie Williams.

"Stay Tuned."

Andre Carter says he got his work ethic from his father.

While with the Redskins, Carter showed off his keyboard skills.

Jared Odrick wasn't even born when the film was released in 1985, but that didn't stop the Miami Dolphins defensive star's strange tribute to Pee-Wee Herman.

Odrick sacked Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman on Sunday and without missing a beat, he broke out into the iconic "Tequila" dance -- much to the dismay of teammates.

"The whole Pee-Wee Herman thing is terrible," Jason Taylor told Mike Berardino of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "Odrick thinks he's cool now because they have a little song that they play in the fourth quarter. He thinks he's a trend setter. He's embarrassing himself."

Spoken like someone who's danced in public before. But it appears some Dolphins fans have fallen in love with Odrick's strange choice of celebration. During the fourth quarter of Sunday's win, Sun Life Stadium workers played "Tequila," and a surprisingly large percentage of fans danced to it.

Odrick, 23, doesn't mind the playful criticism from his aging teammate. "JT's just mad because he's been here 15 years and doesn't have a theme song yet," he said.

The younger defensive end wants the Sun Life entertainment team to play his new favorite song after all his upcoming home sacks.

Turns out this isn't the first time Odrick has used the dance routine -- just the first time anyone really noticed. The former Penn State star also danced the Tequila after a sack of Tim Tebow a few weeks ago, but since it

was the golden boy of the NFL and the Dolphins drowned in the fourth quarter, few noticed.

So why did the NFL star pick a sack dance from a film that was released 874 days before he was born? Well, Odrick's mother was the inspiration.

"It was something I enjoyed doing when I was young," Odrick told the Sun-Sentinel. "I was doing it when I was a little kid and I thought I'd bring that back. My mom actually told me to start doing it."

Oldrick has 12 tackles this season to go along with three sacks and an interception for a Dolphins team that's won two straight.

Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, for those who don't remember (or erased their memory of it) follows man-child Pee-Wee Herman (Paul Reubens) around as he travels across the U.S. to find his beloved bike after it's stolen in broad daylight. With a budget of just $6 million, director Tim Burton's film ended up grossing close to seven times that for Warner Bros.

Odrick doing his thing after dumping Rex Grossman.

Pee-Wee's Big Adventure is iconic in large part, because of this scene.
