Takin’ a Break from All Our Worries

The Noise in Boise is still 14 days away. Although everyone is clearly excited — reports are that the Maryland AD has sold a whopping 16 tickets! That’s as many as I sold to my recent colonoscopy. But that may be more a reflection on the greatness of my colonoscopies than the football team. We had it catered and everything.

In other news, the next basketball cupcake game is not until Sunday (although it’s against American, and we need revenge). Soccer and field hockey are over. Lacrosse is a spring sport. What’s a Terps blog to do? Take a break, that’s what. Recharge before the hoops season begins in earnest.

When the games come back, we’ll come back. In the meantime, enjoy the Maryland YouTubery below, have a great holiday season, good luck on those finals, and GO TERPS!

    Nice post. How many tickets are the Terps allotted? This could be embarrassing if we do not get more fans to go. However, I for one would have rather attended the colonoscopy. I write two blogs, one is called Terps Report (www.terpsreport.com) in which I write about all things Terps and the other is called Recruiting Scoop (www.recruitingscoop.com) in which I highlight recruiting for Maryland’s Men’s and Women’s Basketball and football as well as recruiting for in-state prospects who are looking elsewhere. My Terps Report is more of an aggrogate website in which I find articles on the web and link them to my page. I was wondering if you would be interested in me putting you on my blogroll and vice-versa. I would look for articles on your site, give a one sentence opening for your article as well as hyperlinking a word that would send readers right to your site. Please let me know. Thanks. I look forward to hearing back from you. I really like your site.

    I really miss Steve Blake. It’s such a tease that with my eyes half-open and cross-eyed, Hayes looks just like him on screen.

    that blake play is my favorite too. especially because it makes j.williams look like such a prick.

    I think The Specialist absolutely deserves that spot. That 2003 team made the Sweet Sixteen on nothing but heart. It was Nicholas, Blake, and what, Taj Holden? They were the opposite of all the other underacheiving Maryland teams who made the Sweet Sixteen (or not even) and then crapped out far short of their potential. I give Nicholas this spot for his cajones.
