Thursday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

Happy Thursday!

It’s a Happy Thursday for me because…..I’m still breathing?

(Edit from GMC: Photo is from last year. My friends are all much too hungover to send me pictures from last night.)

Look, it was St. Patrick’s Day. What did you expect?

By the way-these two things ABSOLUTELY happened to me within a 5 minute span at a bar in Parkville last night.

1-As I was walking out of the bathroom, I recognized the young lady who was standing to my left. Not someone I knew particularly well, but I definitely recognized her. She recognized me as well-but apparently she comes from a place where the way to greet someone is to throw yourself upon them, lick their face, say “Watch this” and proceed to make out with a random girl who walks by.

For the record, I’m totally fine with that particular greeting.

2-As I walked outside to greet the party I was with, another attractive young lady greeted me. She said “do you want to see my boobs?” As someone who is a fan of anatomy in general, I said “sure” and then told her I thought my girlfriend would want to see them as well. The young lady indeed showed us her breasts, and they were lovely.

After showing us her breasts, the young lady proceeded to ask us about our relationship, and if we were getting married. She told us she was a therapist, and that she would be more than willing to provide counseling if we were considering getting married. (We’re not.) She then offered us other types of relationship advice, before showing us her breasts again.

You know what? I MIGHT take her up on her offer…

Let’s see what everyone has to say….

1. The Diamondback’s Kevin Robillard says Obama not a Gary Williams fan

I have to imagine this was just a slip of the tongue, as I don’t really think the POTUS meant to offend Gary Williams, I just think he inteneded to praise Tom Izzo-and it came out the wrong way.

Look, I have no problem with Barry O picking the Spartans to beat the Terps. It’s really a tossup. I was torn myself, but since I’ve got Testudo on my underpants-I stuck with Maryland.

The other story there is that there was some opposition to Steny Hoyer’s attempt to honor the Terps in the House of Representatives. And why wouldn’t there be? I mean, being a Terrapins fan is….anti-American???

2. D1scourse’s Patrick Stevens says Milbourne, Hayes, Mosley tend to struggle when Vasquez takes a lot of shots

Yet, it doesn’t necessarily mean Maryland is always doomed (see Virginia Tech just a few Saturdays ago).

Clearly, Maryland is a better team when they’re getting at least a level of offensive balance. Greivis Vasquez is GOING to be “the guy”, but they should be able to get contributions from the rest of the offense.

That being said, if a game does fall into the hands of the senior from Venezuela in the 2nd half; I am much more comfortable with him this season than I was a season ago.

3. ESPN.com’s Pat Forde says Terps reach Final Four in ‘best case’ scenario, fall to Houston in ‘worst case’ scenario

I mean, in the “best case” scenario, we’d probably be seeing something like this again, right?

God, I could watch that all day.

4. The Sun’s Ken Murray says Morgan State will support leukemia stricken teammate Anthony “Big Ant” Anderson in Buffalo

It’s a tremendous shame that “Big Ant” is too sick to make the NCAA Tournament trip, as he had talked about getting the chance to do so as the Bears were making their run through the MEAC and the MEAC Tournament.

That being said, there is NO DOUBT that Anderson is on the heart and mind of Todd Bozeman and these Morgan players every time they play. Reggie Holmes had the number 4 shaved into his head the night of the Coppin State game, and he waved 4 fingers in the air after the title game in Winston-Salem. DeWayne Jackson was Anderson’s roommate, and they both had to sit out their first season.

5. Stevenson Official Site says Kyle Moffitt tallied 4 goals as Mustangs topped Stevens 16-11

I mean, why didn’t they just go ahead and have this guy handle the face-offs?

The Mustangs now hit the road for games at Lynchburg and Mary Washington, which could at least mean they’ll have their first game with a differential of less than 5 goals.

6. The AP says Jason Berken struggled as Birds fell to Blue Jays

Who’s having a worse spring? Nolan Reimold or this fella…..

7. MLB.com’s Brittany Ghiroli says Chris Tillman, Jason Berken, David Hernandez competing for fifth rotation spot

I don’t understand this AT ALL. Why in the hell are the Orioles screwing around with Jason Berken by putting him in the rotation mix again? He’s fine in the relief role. LEAVE HIM THERE.

As far as the Tillman/Hernandez debate goes, I would tend to think that Tillman will eventually be the guy for the role, but I would understand it if the O’s decided to start him in Norfolk and start the season with Hernandez.

8. Sporting News’ Stan McNeal says Kevin Millwood not concerned about ‘lousy’ start to Spring Training

Millwood might actually belong in the Reimold/Massa debate for who is having the worst Spring.

You know who ISN’T having a bad spring? Anyone who has heard of Nadine Coyle….

9. The Sun’s Jamison Hensley says Ravens could play Jets Thanksgiving night at the Meadowlands

NO. DISLIKE. WHOLLY DISAPPROVE.

BUT….feel free to insert your own Rex Ryan Thanksgiving joke here.

Seriously, I want NO PART of a trip to East Rutherford to play the Jets on a short week. Especially on a day that is supposed to be about food and WATCHING football. At home.

10. Carroll County Times’ Aaron Wilson says Frank Walker ‘weighing options’ in free agency

And no, the Toronto Argonauts are NOT believed to be one of the options he is weighing, even if they did just sign former Ravens QB Cleo Lemon.

Ravens fans are quick to say “go ahead and let him go”, but they should really think about that. SOMEONE has to play cornerback at the beginning of the season, with both Fabian Washington and Lardarius Webb major question marks.

11. Ravens Official Site’s Mike Duffy says Marcus Smith battling injuries, new acquisitions in attempt to make Ravens’ roster

At 6’1″, Marcus Smith doesn’t stand out the same way Demetrius Williams does. Williams seems to have a role in Baltimore no matter what because the Ravens have no other tall options at receiver right now.

But a healthy Marcus Smith would have trouble separating himself behind the likes of Anquan Boldin and Donte’ Stallworth.

12. Lingerie Football League Official Site says new team to be called “Baltimore Charm”, will meet with prospective players Friday night at Mother’s in Federal Hill

Am I ACTUALLY interested in the team? No. Do I fully support the product? Of COURSE I do.

And finally, I leave you with this.
