March is the month of madness and nothing is more mad than firing shot at a 98-year-old basketball-loving nun.

Ahead of Loyola’s Final-Four matchup against Michigan, a business from the Ramblers’ opponent’s town decided to playfully throw shade at Loyola’s beloved Sister Jean Dolores-Schmidt.

The Bank of Ann Arbor made a sign that read: “Sister Jean will soon know the difference between heaven and hail.”

The hail reference is meant to be a pun for Michigan’s fight song “Hail to the Victors,” which repeats the word “hail” multiple times throughout.

What do you think? Playful shade? Or did this Michigan bank take it a little too far?
