The University of Maryland continues to put the state’s flag to good use as they will be giving away 15,000 pairs of Maryland Pride sunglasses at Saturday’s game versus Old Dominion. The picture to the right, tweeted by Daniel Martin of Comcast Sports Network Washington, shows wide receiver Stefon Diggs modeling the shades.
I’m definitely a fan, but I wonder what the folks at Route One Apparel think of the giveaway. They’re UMD alums who sell very similar items online and at stores across the state.
Is it just me or have we only recently discovered how awesome our flag is? I seem to see it blended together into all kinds of cool designs of late, but don’t ever recall it being used as much in the past.
Regardless, I’m happy to see the Terps using it. Kickoff is at 4 PM, get to Byrd Stadium early to pick up these sweet specs.
