If you bought season tickets to the University of Maryland’s football games, you got a nice set of commemorative tickets. They listed highlights from the team’s “Proud Past [and] Fearless Future,” including its two undefeated seasons, 24 bowl appearances, 142 All-Americans, and 203 NFL draft picks. And they also included pictures of Terps both past and future.
The current players featured on the tickets were Stefon Diggs, Dexter McDougle, and C.J. Brown. Now, here’s where things start to get creepy:
All three of those players suffered serious injuries during the season. Back in November, the Washington Post’s sports blog noted that “you might say that Maryland’s season tickets are cursed.” Or you might say that football players get injured all the time, since they’re always slamming into each other.
But–the curse continues, and in an entirely different sport! On Tuesday, the Terps played Virginia Tech, and forward Charles Mitchell was pictured on the tickets. Midway through that game, however, Mitchell got in a fight with the coaching staff and was removed from the game. Dun-Dun-DUN! The curse continues!
