If I'm understanding Maryland Athletic Director Kevin Anderson correctly, the best way to be best friends with someone is to never talk to them and, above all else, never invite them to your house for game night. (Or go to their house, for that matter.)
Tonight might be the last night ever -- like, ever ever -- that Georgetown and Maryland play a lacrosse game against each other. Like, in the distant future history of the world kind of ever. (I'm Secretary of the Beer-terior in that future history, so you're lucky to have met me now.)
Of course, all of this will get worked out when Georgetown apologizes and Maryland apologizes and then they have a big ol' laugh over this kerfuffle next to a big bag of money with a green dollar sign stitched into it. That's how things work. Trust me; I don't become the most effective Secretary of the Beer-terior in future history because I lack an understanding of sophisticated negotiation.
Elsewhere, Duke hosts Pennsylvania in what has huge implications for John Danowski's potential ulcer. Smarting from a whipping at the hands of Notre Dame last Saturday, the Devils are looking for some sweet kisses to make them feel better about themselves. Of course, the Quakers aren't a fan of sweet kisses and actually prefer smashing faces with their face-smashing fists. This game should be really sweet (or violent). Whatever.
Here's tonight's schedule (ESPN3 has the Maryland-Georgetown game):
If you haven't seen it yet, here's a little sugar on Maryland's Curtis Holmes. He'll have a prominent role tonight for Herr Terrapins.
Leave your comments about the game or anything else (QUERY: How cool would it be if Pennsylvania put Ben Franklin wigs over their helmets?) in the comments below.
