Maryland vs. #5 West Virginia
Tonight, we had a matchup between the
Fighting Turtles Terrapins of Fairyland Maryland going on the road off the paved path onto the dirt mountain country roads of West Virginia.
The first quarter was brutal for the only coach that could eat Phil Fulmer’s team, but the Terps were able to gain back a little of their dignity with a touchdown in the second quarter. Gaining back dignity much in the same way that prison rapists give you back your pants after they’re done with you. You’ve still been pounded in the ass, but at least you can cover it up with something.
I’m writing this basically whilst watching it live, so if it seems that there are continuity problems in the established plotlines and fantastic stories you’ve become accustomed to here at Fulmer’s Belly, that’s why.
Well, the Terps tried to mount a bit of a comeback, only to be held to a field goal, and then being well, bumfuzzled again by WVU on what had to have been a bobbled reception on the kickoff (because they totally had to have that play in the playbook) by giving up a kickoff return for a touchdown.
Ok, well, I can’t watch anymore, not because I have errands to run, but because it’s just getting embarassing.
Unless Maryland mounts a comeback worthy of Rocky, I’m going to go ahead and call this game over.
On a side note, the stadium at WVU looks eerily similar to that of Commonwealth Stadium at Kentucky. Of course with the difference being that there are fans in the seats. But that aside, the design seems to be the same as Commonwealth. Which begs the question, if you’re going to go to another stadium for inspiration (not that they did, but we all know better), why wouldn’t you copy a nicer stadium? Like my high school stadium.
