JP Finlay grew up rooting for every DC team imaginable and knew the second verse to Hail to the Redskins way before it was cool. His proudest moment came watching the Maryland Terps win the men's basketball title in Atlanta in 2002. Well that, or eating 13 Taco Bell burritos in one night at SXSW in 2010. Finlay claims that he once sneaked into a club and partied with Nick Young, watched Alex Ovechkin take shots at a black-tie event and, at 15, was refused an autograph from Sonny Jurgensen.
Maryland senior guard Sean Mosley most likely played his last game before the home crowd in an overtime loss to Virginia. Mosley enjoyed a fine career at Maryland, and the home crowd thanked him for it.
A few weeks back we met a group of Maryland students who decided to honor Terps men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon by dressing up in suits for the games. The crew chooses not to give themselves a name, and in an era of Facebook and Twitter, they want to keep a low profile.
