To the moron who wrote the first definiton Take first grade geography before you post about something you are completely ignorant of. Maryland is about crabs, beer, and football in that order. Enough said
For me, the Eastern Shore is all about community. Where they wear red in memory of a middle school boy killed in a car accident. They cook meals, and volunteer to staff the homeless shelter for people here in QA County who have no place of their own. They help neighbors clean up after hurricanes, or disasters like the tornado that hit Kent Island in July The volunteers set up and decorated the hall where the dance would be held, arranged for the music, and food, and limo rides for fun around the block. The food was donated by the local Chick-fil-A franchise, whose owner lives on the island.
Maryland is a pretty fantastic state, overall. There are some of the most underrated beaches on the east coast here. The western side has some awesome mountains and scenery. And Baltimore, is well, Baltimore. But is it all great in the Old Line State?
Maryland was a founding member of the Southern Conference in , a founding member of the Atlantic Coast Conference in , and is now a member of the Big Ten Conference. The nickname was coined in by Harry C. Byrd thought "Terrapins" was a good choice because of the diamondback terrapins endemic to the Chesapeake Bay region. Byrd's hometown of Crisfield was famous for the number of terrapins along its shores.
