Today’s biggest fake scandal: The University of Maryland Terps got new uniforms, and everyone who’s anyone thinks they’re a big fashion faux pas. Or something like that. Last I checked, no one actually was that upset — but the Baltimore Sun insists that the blogosphere was simply erupting with indignation over the University of Maryland’s new football uniforms. Which actually look pretty cute.
“For most of the game, on Facebook, on Twitter, on people’s blogs, folks went on and on and on about the uniforms and their instantaneous, visceral disgust for them,” the Sun frets. The uniforms in question incorporate the black and yellow checkerboard and the red and white cross of the Maryland state flag.
However: No less a source than the State Flag Power Rankings blog (actually a real thing) finds the flag insidiously compelling (“more and more boss the more I think about it”); and here, another ranking awards it the top spot. In conclusion: the Maryland flag looks cool, and these uniforms also look cool. Don’t mind the haters, Terps. You guys look great.
