Maddening! That's how the BasketCases feel about having to work for a living, as that kept us away from last night's Maryland Madness. (Sadly, we don't get to spend all of our time watching basketball!) So we apologize to our loyal readers for being unable to give you an eyewitness account of what no doubt was a fun fun time at Comcast . . . and the official public debut of the 2007-08 Terps. But thanks to Heather Dinich of the Baltimore Sun, we learned that
The women's team came out in their little black dresses and shook their tambourines and more. Both teams flaunted their hip-hop moves and had the crowd rocking as practices officially began in a nearly packed gym, with each team scrimmaging for about 10 minutes.
And as always, there is a wonderful photo gallery on the Terps' website, which you can access from this page. Pay close attention and you'll be able to catch a peek at the Terps' two newest "fans."

The BasketCases will get to see the team in person for the first time next weekend, as Coach B holds an open practice for the booster club, the Rebounders. And if you haven't joined the Rebounders yet, what are you waiting for?

Hate to say it, but I saw a lot less media coverage on the women's angle of Maryland Madness this year, even though they're a likely top 10 team with a good recruiting class and were among the nation's attendance leaders last year, so fan interest is still there. I thought we were past this.

Alas, I think this is the difference between Connecticut and Tennessee and everyone else. How do we change this?

^^ That's the video of the girls dance. Pretty much awesome in comparison to last years walk on entrance.

I would love to join the Rebounders. I went to their website last week and I couldn't find anything about joining.

Re joining the Rebounders: the group has just switched "web masters," so this info must have fallen thru the cracks. If you go to our profile and send us an email with your contact info, we'll make sure you get the info to join.

Thanks! (And thanks for the link!)
