Maryland is crawling their way backPosted: June 16, 2021 Filed under: Uncategorized Leave a comment
This was spoken during the Virginia/Maryland Lacrosse Championship, when Virginia was ahead at the time (Virginia ultimately won). It is a nice conflation of “clawing your way back” (gradually achieve something by using a lot of effort and determination” and “crawling back to (someone)” (to go back to someone humbly). “Crawl” and “Claw” is obviously where the mixup occurred, as the words are almost mirrors of one another. A big thanks to Martin Pietrucha who heard this one and discerned the subtle difference.
