I would wear clothes like this everyday
Anywho, you get my point: Maryland is better than your state. It's funny how pride can change with distance. When I was home, I liked everything about MD but I had no reason to brag since everyone around me understood. Now that I've been in Utah, I need to constantly remind people of how great it is and how unlucky they are for not being part of it. I kind of feel the same way about BYU. Whenever we leave the Provo area and go somewhere predominantly not Mormon (which is everywhere outside of Utah), my BYU pride swells up. Pride is a funny thing, but one this is for sure, I love me some Terps and Cougars.
