SPORTS FANS
PLATEEXPLANATION
.30AUT6This driver is a fan of the .30-06 rifle round, which was and remains a popular cartridge choice. It was the standard U.S. rifle round in WWII used in the venerable U.S. M-1 rifle of WWII. It packs a very nice kick. At least one Winchester lever action rifle is also set up for .30-06. Thanks to Randy W. for this sighting...
2 WUFPAK Wonder if this is a reference to the Wolfpack (NC State athletics program)--or Nevada; else, a fan of German WWII submarines (the U-Boats, when operating together, were known as a "Wolfpack")??
4 CAVEZAssuming this plate belongs to a spelunker (someone who loves to explore caves)...
4EVRSNUI wonder if SNU is a school/team? I am going to assume 4 now, that it is...
4EVRPIR8For ever Pirates?...
FERGZTRK"Ferg's" truck?...
18COLTSA fan of number 18 on the COLTS team, maybe? Granted, I'm reaching a little here...
ALLST8TESelf-explanatory--or, could be a fan of the insurance company, I suppose
BMFCU#1Some university sports team?
BO.RDSOXClearly NOT a Yankees fan--'s okay, I'm originally from the Boston area
BOAT RCRA fan of boats (VEHICLES), but more specifically a fan of boat racing...
BRUSKI Either a suds fan (beer), or someone who admires Patriots Hall of Famer Teddy Bruschi. Spotted in NC by Randy W.
DOLFANS Haha, pretty easy to recognize this one...
DRT BKER A motocross fan perhaps, or just someone who likes to ride...
DUKE This could be a person's name, but I'm listing it as a plate for a fan of Duke University, since I happen to reside in North Carolina (Duke does, too)...
DVLHANGL Pretty sure that the HANGL portion refers to Hang Gliding, but not sure what to make of the "DVL" (unless it's a group initials); or, perhaps it's not even sports related and refers to "devilish angel" or something? Thanks to Randy for this sighting...
FANS North Carolina "specialty" plate, meaning it has a vertical letter code along the right side, "C P" for "Carolina Panthers"--so we know which team (and sport) this family supports as fans!...
FLYR FAN Either a Philadelphia Flyers fan--or this person has a thing for aircraft
G*TORS University of Florida football fan
GIT FITAn athletic individual urges us to shape up! Good advice good advice for all...
GLFJUNKYNot what I would consider an especially exciting sport (I could read a book between holes), but hey--some folks (like this one) are positively passionate about it...
GOLANCEAssuming this means bike racer Lance...
GN CRIKN Gone "CRICKING"? Not sure exactly what the CRIKN is, and it may not be a sport, though it does sound like something active... .
GYMNAST2I was a gymnast all through high school (too bad, in those days men's gymnastics had a bad rap compared to football, baseball, etc.), so here's a plate that appeals to me in particular!
HCKYFAN Hockey in general, or just the Hurricanes-- seeing as how this is North Carolina and teh Hurricanes are the home team...
IB4MIAMI Could be the city -- but probably means the Dolphins, the Heat, the Panthers, the Florida Marlins (soon to be renamed Miami Marlins), or university Miami Hurricanes...
LACE UPA roller blader, maybe? Perhaps an ice skater/hockey player?...
LIV2DIVEThis driver is a fan of diving (either in water, or through the air)!
LONGJUMPA fan (or athlete) from the Track & Field crowd...
LPACKER Possible that this is actually a personal name: "L. Packer"--but maybe a reference to the Packers?
LV2 BOWL Not sure if this person lives / loves to bowl Kingpin (also called "10-pin;" these are the standard, bottleneck-style pins), or Candlepins (popular primarily in the New England states; the pins have no bottleneck and the ball is much smaller than a Kingpin ball--thus the balls have no holes; also, the number of rolls per scoring frame is three, not two), or both...
NCCODI'm guessing this is a North Carolina person who fishes for cod--but I could be mistaken...
NCSTATEII'm thinking the "I" stands in for a "1" -- a North Carolina State fan...
NEBHUSKRI'm assuming this is a fan of the Nebraska [Corn]huskers -- i.e., the University of Nebraska...
NPDIVETM There IS a Normandy Park Swim Club in Washington, that has a Dive Team (this is diving into a pool from a board, not scuba diving). But, it was not seen on a Washington plate, so can't be certain...
NY Y FAN See, I'm truly non-partisan: despite the fact that I hail from the Boston area where you might get murdered if you mention "YANKEES," I'm willing to show a fan of the Y team when I see one...
OLE MI$$ No doubt who THIS driver roots for...
OU CAROhio University? University of Oklahoma (Sooners)? However, the tag was North Carolina; the driver was female...
PLAY-BALFamous baseball expression!...
PNTBALLR I'm sure you can figure this one out...
POOLPLAR Weird choice, I'd have used POOLPLYR myself (if it were available)...but in any case, it's got to represent POOL PLAYER...
POLO 2.0 Regular polo, or water polo?
PWR LFTR A weight lifter? (Power Lifter); this plate parks in the same community that my house is located.
QRTRMILER Another Track & Field person...
ROD&GUN Someone who likes sport shooting...

SOX4LIFEThere was also a BOSTON sticker on the bumper plate; thanks to Randy W...
STEELRZ Pretty clear which team this fan roots for...
SUMMIT Perhaps a mountain climber?
TEEITUP Got to be a golfer...Seen in FAYETTEVILLE
TEEITUP1 Another golfer who came up with the same vanity plate idea...a bit too late...seen in RALEIGH. Thanks to Aaron (Raleigh) for this one...
TIGRFAN If this ia a reference to Tiger Woods, perhaps this plate owner regrets the choice of this plate these days? ...
THEWOOD Probably a golfer with a reference to the "Wood" (meaning a club)-- (or Tiger Woods) -- else an off color reference to an occasional condition experienced my males in the morning...(i.e., having a "woody" on awakening)...
TRAIN2WIN A sound philosophy for almost any skilled competitive activity...
TXHOLDEM "Texas hold them", maybe? University of Texas? ...
TROY UNVThis one's pretty self explanatory... .
UNC 2OF3 Some sort of score for the University of North Carolina? Or, perhaps this driver is a parent--2 of whose 3 children attended UNC?...
UNC&TAIN Likely University of North Carolina, since I am in North Carolina -- but I don't follow much college sports so have no idea who (or what) TAIN is...
UNC FMLYThe family that owns this vehicle has students I suspect,that attend the University of North Carolina. The car had North Carolina plates, though it was spotted in Nashville, TN...
UNC-UNC No doubt about which university THIS driver roots for (University of North Carolina); or, may have sons and or daughters as students, hence the double UNC
UNC 2OF3 Some sort of score for the University of North Carolina? Or, perhaps this driver is a parent--2 of whose 3 children attended UNC?...
UNDFETED No doubt about this one--except as regards what it's referring to--a sports team? A country? A person's life approach?... .
UT ROCKS This could be a band or a peraon, but I am assuming that it's a fan of the University of Texas, or some other school starting with "T."
VTALUMVirginia Tech alumnus? Credit for this sighting goes to Randy W.
WILDFISH A fishing enthusiast, most likely!
WIN!! This vehicle had a plate holder with a Nascar reference on it, so the WIN!! is almost surely aimed at a particular Nascar driver or team.
X*FIT*R Someone working in a sports shop who "outfits" others, perhaps?
