A funny thing happened before halftime of the Maryland/Virginia Tech basketball game last night. With under a minute remaining in the opening period, Hokies freshman Dorenzo Hudson barfed all over the court while Maryland was at the charity stripe. We could go into detail about the whole thing, but you know what they say: a picture is worth a thousand words. So, a moving picture must be worth about a thousand “ewwwwww, grosses”.
But some great things came out of this, mainly quotes. Here’s a sample of the responses Dan Steinber of D.C. Sport Bog picked up at the game.
THAT’S DIS-GUS-TING,” the student section began chanting.” …
“I got a whiff of it,” confirmed Maryland fan Russ Dlin, seated in the front row. “It smelled like puke, is what it smelled like.”
Others were more descriptive, and again, feel free to look away.
“I thought he got hit by a drink,” said Gary Harraka, also from the front row. “It just went squirting out. It was pretty disgusting.”
“He was going into his shirt, but it was still flying up,” said senior Greg Weller.
“He was holding his mouth and it sprayed up in the air,” said senior Dan O’Keefe.
“It sprayed at least two feet in the air,” agreed senior Clark Johnson.
“That was mostly liquid, though,” Weller chimed in. “First he blew out mostly chunks right there, then when he started covering up it started deflecting off his shirt.”…
“I was on the bench but I seen him lean back and I was like, ‘Aww, mannnn,’ ” Deron Washington said. “It was more funny than gross. We was laughing. I couldn’t focus for a few minutes ’cause he did that….That’s a first time for me. It was pretty hilarious….I started laughing, then I started getting a little queasy, but we just started clowning him after that.”
Oh, and Thorns did tell Kilgore what the pre-game meal was. “Same thing we always have,” he said: “steak, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese.
