    Congratulations! I remember fondly all the games which I refereed for your teams so long ago. I retired from active refereeing in 1984. Since then I was a supervisor for several conferences until age 80. It would be nice to hear from you.

    bravo..chris weller.

    as far as the “maryland nation”. not really big on that term, or red sox nation. that type of expression works best in regards native american indian references. and the “nation” term is over-used now, it’s unoriginal..it really doesn’t fit. yow could have said terrapin fans around the country and around the world……..there is no terrapin nation.
