VIDEO: Maryland Terrapins Mascot Appears In ESPN's 'This Is SportsCenter' Commercial

Local athletes and sports figures have a long history of appearing in ESPN's landmark "This is SportsCenter" commercials. Alex Ovechkin and Semyon Varlamov just filmed one a couple months ago, and who could forget this classic featuring former Bullets center Gheorghe Muresan and Lil' Penny? So ESPN's latest commercial, featuring Testudo, the Maryland mascot, has a lot to live up to around these parts.

Did it succeed? I guess so. I know it's pretty corny to do a joke about a turtle mascot walking slowly into a meeting, because turtles are slow and Testudo is a turtle (get it?), but I admit I still laughed a little bit.
