Wear Your Green!

Tomorrow (Friday) night at 8:30 PM, the Terps will host the Demon Deacons of Wake Forest at Comcast. Maryland will be hoping to maintain the momentum from their big win over the Tarheels and stretch their current 3-game ACC win streak to 4. Of course, the opportunity to rise in the standings makes this game very important.

But perhaps even more important, tomorrow is Team Tyler Leukemia Awareness Night. All Leukemia survivors are invited to attend the game for free (email Representatives from the National Capital Area Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society will be at Comcast to share information and promote awareness about leukemia. The Chapter aids more than 2,500 patients and families every year. This is a great opportunity for all of us to learn more about this life-threatening disease, which, as our readers know, has struck very close to home . . . Mark and Brenda's son Tyler.

The Team Tyler Foundation will also be represented; T-shirts and awareness wristbands will be available for sale and donations will be accepted.

Even though St. Patrick's Day is still more than a month away, fans (of both teams) are encouraged to wear GREEN (in honor of Leukemia Awareness) to the game. (You may already have noticed that the players are now wearing green ribbons for Tyler on their jerseys.) Tomorrow, the Maryland coaches will be wearing green . . . and so will the BCs. Hope you'll join us in this symbolic gesture.

And even though the game will be shown on Comcast SportsNet (RSN), we hope that your streets are clear (and your car is dug out and gassed up), so that you'll be able to join us in making the trip to College Park as well. Cheering on your team live is lots more fun than watching from home.

See you tomorrow (in your green).

Go Terps . . . Beat the Deacons!
