Play-by-Play

Live play-by-play action of my actions during the (4)Maryland vs. (5)Michigan State game yesterday.

Disclaimer: We were fairly certain if the Terps could triumph in this game, they could go to the Elite 8 for the first time since 2002 when we won the national championship.

SUNDAY, MARCH 21
2:18 pm: Return from a huge lunch at a local Greek place full of gyro and spanakopita.

2:30 pm: I grab one recliner, boyfriend gets the other. Flip on the game.

2:41 pm: Score 2-4 Michigan. Terps can't get a rebound and Vasquez misses his first 3. Yawn.

2:43 pm: Yawn, stretch, "I wonder if we'll..."

2:44 pm: Snooooooozzzzzzzeeeee... MmMmMm nap, nap, nap, nap...

HALF TIME, score: 39-48 Michigan. "Oh great, glad I missed so much."

3:55 pm: Game's back on. Second half.

4:18 pm: Score 51-67 Michigan. Terps can't get a rebound and Vasquez misses some free throws. Yawn. Pick up magazine, thumb through it. Boyfriend has the hoodie on his sweat shirt over his eyes.

4:47 pm: Score 73-80 Michigan. Vasquez makes a two point jumper.

4:49 pm: Score 79-80. I'm out of my chair now. Boyfriend has been out of his chair for the past 10 minutes. Pacing. Yes.. yes... go... go.. ALL RIGHT!

4:50 pm: Score 81-80 Maryland up for the first time in the second half. GOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGO. 0:39 to play. Michigan calls a time out. "YEAH YOU BETTER CALL A TIME OUT!"

4:51 pm: NO! YES! NO! NO! YES! GOOD! YES!!!! They make a two point jumper. We make a two point jumper. Score 83-82 Maryland. We got this, we got this, we got this!!!

4:51 pm: Michigan has the ball, 3 seconds to play, dribbles, we got this, we got this, Michigan's Draymond Green launches it from almost half court.
