Why Is Fake Blood So Hard To Make?

While this seems like a different topic for us, there is a reason.

You see, the University of Maryland Terrapins have the number one seeded team in the NCAA women’s lacrosse tournament as well as the men’s tournament. That’s right, there are two turtles sitting at number one.

Last week, the men looked lethargic in beating Bryant College, but to be fair, Bryant was out of school and the Terps were still in exam week. The Terps won, but didn’t look good doing it.

Yesterday, the women “stunk up da joint” and barely beat Stoney Brook. Maryland had trailed most of the game and late in the game was trailing 11-7. Somehow they managed to close the gap to 11 – 10, and following a Stoney Brook goal, scored the next three to win 13 – 12.

The men have Albany this afternoon and Albany is no slouch. The prediction is a close game, but we are hoping for a blowout.

We get too nervous in close games.

So why the reference to making fake blood?

Because if Maryland wins, there will be “Albany blood” on the field. If Maryland loses, there will be blood on the field as well.

Either way, as Inigo Montoya famously said, “there will be blood tonight!

Fear the Turtle!

PS – the game is on at 2:30 PM on ESPNU.
