Maryland's state flag is a nightmare, and given the University of Maryland's association with UnderArmour, I was braced for unfiltered awfulness when I read a headline about the Terrapins working the state flag into its basketball court.

Crisis adverted! It's... not bad?


In retrospect, it’s actually kind of surprising that the Maryland basketball court did not already feature large elements of the Maryland state flag. Because people from Maryland believe the Maryland state flag should be featured on all pamphlets, posters, items of clothing, marketing materials, food units, and architectural surfaces.

Any oversight will be corrected this season, as these early photos of Xfinity Center’s new floor indicate.
