Football Awards and Barbecue Banter

First, a word on barbecue before I get to Maryland’s football awards because Yanda and I are literally getting messaged from Germany about his post on the restaurant in N.C. (and we appreciate the thoughts) The Durham joint left a lot to be desired, to say the least. The best part about it was the kindness of the waitress. I should have ordered a tuna sandwich and called it a day. I should not have ordered the Coke. I enjoy barbecue from all areas of the country. I visited a great one during the holidays outside Austin called The Salt Lick. The parking lot could hold hundreds of cars. Great place.

Anyway, here are the awards that were handed out during Maryland’s banquet for the football team:
