History Lesson

Each of the following events occurred in 1989:

  • A new President, George H.W. Bush, took the oath of office.
  • The Exxon Valdez ran aground, dumping 11 million gallons of oil into Prince William Sound off the coast of Alaska.
  • The TV show "Seinfeld" premiered.
  • "Batman" was the highest-grossing movie of the year.
  • The Chinese government violently crushed student protests in Tiananmen Square.
  • Madonna's "Like a Prayer" was the year's hit single.
  • Golfer Michelle Wie was born.
  • The University of Maryland's women's basketball team last won an ACC Regular Season title.

The Terps have a chance to make some new history in Miami tomorrow (Sunday) when they take on the University of Miami Hurricanes at 2 PM. If they win, it won't matter what happens in the Florida State game against Wake Forest that starts an hour later. A victory by Maryland would lock up (at the very least) a share of the ACC Regular Season title, and the Terps would enter next week's ACC Tournament in Greensboro as the #1 seed. (You can watch the game on ACC Select, or listen on Terps radio.)

20 years is a long looooong time to wait. Go Terps . . . beat the U!

How funny is it that we picked the same theme for our preview? I missed the Batman thing though.
