House Cleaning

The Orioles begin the exhibition season today. Can’t watch it though as MASN chooses only to broadcast three games before the season opener on March 31. Didn’t Comcast used to broadcast about half the exhibition games? Nice way to drum up interest for a season that needs as much as possible. I don’t get it.

The Terps haven’t imploded yet. They still have a very good chance to make the NCAA Tourney. Winning two of three and one in Charlotte makes them a lock. That said, they way they’ve lost their last two games, with their seniors shrinking and their point guard combusting at crunch time, the conversation about what went wrong isn’t entirely premature.

College lacrosse puts on its regular season showcase Saturday. Syracuse vs. Virginia at noon followed by Johns Hopkins vs. Princeton at M&T Bank Stadium. Four classic programs on a big stage early on gives the season some buzz. Meanwhile, the team worth maybe the most buzz in state quietly travels to Emmitsburg on Saturday. The Maryland Terrapins opened their season last week with a dominating performance at 4th ranked Georgetown. The Terps got four goals from freshman Greg Catalino. All told, freshmen scored nine of Maryland’s 11 goals. That is scary good for Dave Cottle. Maryland seems to do better when away from the spotlight.
