The Swinging Bunt
WE MUST PROTECT… our children? The #1 seeded University of Maryland women’s basketball team marched onto the Sweet 16 last night with a win at Comcast Center over Utah. Clearly, as Kevin Plank, CEO of Under Armor, would say, ‘they protected their house.’ Apparently, the on-campus home of the Terps is not the only thing needing protection in College Park these days. The motto for the team this season has been, “We eat kids.” Let me get that out again, “WE EAT KIDS!” Courtesy Deadpin, freshman forward Yemi Oyefuwa added, “Every month I choose a child. Sometimes it’s one from back home (London), sometimes it’s someone from this country. You try to pick the juicy ones with nice hair, delicious ones, pretty eyes, because you know, the eyes are the best.” This picture was actually snapped at the conclusion of Silence of the Lambs as Hannibal Lector gets away… Yiiiiiikes!
