Testudo to finally become a man
The D.C. Sports Bog (and Withleather) reports that the University of Maryland mascot Testudo will be Bar Mitzvahed next month. "Services will be held at Hillel Celebration Party in the Colony Ballroom" according to the Maryland Hillel homepage. Apparently Testudo would be the third Jewish mascot in the ACC, joining UNC's Ramses and Miami's Sebastian the Ibis. This would also make the ACC the first conference to have more Jewish mascots than Jewish athletes. L'Chaim!
