Couple of stories to tide you over till Terps-Duke tips off

By Matt Bonesteel

"All the people who could either upstage or fire Gary Williams, a lock for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, have either been run off or left before the kitchen got too hot.

But they didn't get Gary. They never get Gary."

So writes Mike Wise in his column on Maryland Coach Gary Williams. Give it a read here.

And Liz Clarke writes about how Greivis Vasquez's shadow still lingers over this season's Maryland team. Check it out here.

Maryland is the last team to defeat Duke, a memorable 79-72 win over the No. 4 Blue Devils on senior night last March. Now Duke is out for payback, it seems. "We know that's the last team to beat us, and we want to get them back," Duke sophomore guard Andre Dawkins said in a Durham Herald-Sun article.

Hahahahahaha. Saw this over on Redskins Insider. Hahahahahahaha
================================

Am I the only one that thinks Barno is a self righteous d_0uchebag?

That's only part of his story. He was a regular when you and Tweedledum were still in primary school, about four years ago.

He got into a major fight with Jason LaCanfora. Jason had some contest which Barno won and the prize was supposed to be a copy of some CD "Heavy Metal Parking Lot" autographed by Chris Cooley. For whatever reason Jason couldn't get it signed and delivered.

He was very apologetic but Barno went ballistic. You would have though Barno had won PowerBall and Jason was keeping the money for himself. Barno kept every post Jason ever made and would paste copies of "contradictions" up from time to time to attack the incompetence of "the beat reporter." He attacked him on personal bases when Jason would discuss taking his kids to the Doddlebops. It got to be as annoying as the Boycott $nyder campaign or the Haynesworth Training Camp Diary, but Barno wouldn't let it drop.

Everyone hated Barno and he finally gave up, posting only occasionally like the post today.

I think there's a moral here, but I don't know what it is. "Don't post under the name Barno," maybe.

HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA. Funniest read I've had on a Sunday morning in a long time.

Oh, and go Terps, destroy Duke. And those Duke Sucks videos were freaking funny. Loved the Nate/6 Feet Under reference.

Carolina1,

From your name I assume that you are a UNC fan. You are also disgusting. The Duke program has class (a word I don't really like to use) but nevertheless they have it. I don't know how you know the outcome of tonight's game, but, obviously you do. I surely hope that you are wrong. You certainly are jealous. Duke doesn't feel your hatred, you do. Enjoy!

Grammy,
I said the same thing, Carolina claims s/he does it on purpose to catch a reaction and says they will change it eventually.

I think it's time for "grammy" to go back to making some hot tea and playing pinochle with other retirees.

Wow, Poopy_McPoop (dixonthedog) truly has lost it.

How's your "Heavy Metal Parking Lot" DVD?

Hahahahahahaha

While we're waiting for the start of the Duke game, some of you might enjoy my youtube video with highlights from the 2010 Terps football season. Go Terps!

Heavy Metal Parking Lot was awesome...highly recommend it. You can watch it on youtube or just google it. It's an 80s documentary about rock concert tailgating at the old Cap Centre. Truly epic.

And Poopy, you really should consider giving up as well. Everyone who reads this blog knows by now that you're the crazy weirdo obsessed with Barno...and while your campaign to "get" me is noble and all, maybe there's something else you should be doing with your time? Do you have any life at all? You seem to spend an incredibly inordinate amount of time obsessing about an anonymous person on an internet message board. Sorry dude, but no one cares.

Go Terps

I'm shocked we are only down by one at the half. Have we made a shot over eight feet? JW has been awesome, but it's inexplicable that the game is even close. How many air balls have we fired up? Not complaining, just shocked....

Posted by: petecard | January 9, 2011 8:56 PM | Report abuse

I'm not shocked at all Pete. Never shocked when Gary's going up against Duke or a #1. Or in this case, both.

Duke looks nervous...

Posted by: Barno1 | January 9, 2011 9:07 PM | Report abuse

Agreed Pete. GW has done a great job managing JW thus far. The perimeter defense has only had a few lapses. DG came to play.

Incredible that we are only down by one. Credit the Defense.

Nice...up by six. For all of those who called for AB to play two....y'all were right.

I actually glimpsed a girl in the crowd pan who was not foul and repulsive which is fashion merchandising school hot for a duke coed. Who knew?

Like the quote from Nolan Smith about not being able to go to CP in the article link above. orcs are not allowed in CP last I checked. My 7yo thinks he looks like one if the bad guys from LOTR. A specific one.

Good foul by AB.

F Duke and F Poopy McPoo. They both can suck it.

Our mighty Terps hung in there and fought as hard as they could and couldn't quite pull it off. They'll take it out on Wake, that's for sure.

Gotta love being hated as much as Duke. As Ric Flair would say, "Wooooooooooooooo."
