Until this past weekend, when I told folks that I'd taught at the University of Maryland for more than a decade ... they'd ask, "Where?"

Well, "Here and There!" was my usual reply ... and whoever heard of College Park, Maryland anyway? (which happened not be one of the actual locations that I taught for the Univ. of MD!)

And my eldest (more or less) daughter graduated from the University of Maryland ... uhh, I think ... (memory isn't one's highest suite at seventy-six ... almost seventy-seven) ... and that was but one step that pushed her forth in life to picking up her Ph.D. from the University of Washington. Come to think of it ... where's that school? Is it behind the Washington Monument or was it demolished under Mount St. Helens? Whoever heard of the Huskies or the Terps anyway?

Of course, the University of Maryland was the biggest thing going (both of the above players are Terps, of course) on the Internet this past weekend ... from Twitter to Facebook and beyond. The new uniforms are ... well ... something again! See a front shot below. By the way, they beat a former #1 in the nation NCAA powerhouse, Miami of Florida. Clearly, it was a case of mistaken identity, or something like that!

For those of you who didn't know what a Terp was ...

Pretty cool uniforms, I must say.

They surely must have confused the opposing team. Maybe that was the idea.
