I'm proud and glad to say I was there in person for perhaps one of the greatest finishes in Terps basketball history. What my Terps gave from this game is one great memory, a sore throat, a trampled phone from when it fell out of my case during the ensuing mosh pit and most importantly a renewed sense of why we as fans must always believe. As cliche as it may sound, believing is one of the biggest conections as fans we have to our teams. I remember watching as a few people began to file out of Comcast during the final timeout, after Vasquez's original game winner was null in void, and thinking "I can't believe you are leaving now. You just spent 2 hours supporting the Terps and your walking out on them with 1.5 seconds left." I know the game looked lost, I mean how could we possibly make a second game winner? I had the same feeling in my gut the second it was made clear a timeout was called, but it doesn't mean it's not impossible...as we saw today. We all know it's not easy dealing with rough times or heartbreaking losses, and we as Terps fans have had our fair share of those, but they make the impossible and good times feel that much better. And who knows, maybe this leads to a recruiting boost, a deep deep tournament run, a bigger role for Tucker. And maybe this is just the high of the game still in me or somthing but this team is special and I'll leave it at that. So here is a thank you to all the fans who stayed for the final seconds, for the fans who remain loyal through thick and thin, who never stop believing even when no one else will. I also want to extend this thank you to Tucker,Toliver,Vasquez,Novak, Gary,Suter, Fridge, Jordan, Dixon, Mosely, Neal,Baxter, Bias, Frese,McBrien and any Terp, present, past and future, who has given thier all while wearing thier red and gold. Thank you for constantly reminding me and hopefuly alot of you why we love the Terps so much.
