For the second time in as many months, Washington area sports are getting another spotlight from the Worldwide Leader’s long running “This is Sportscenter” ad campaign. This time our subject is the mascot of the University of Maryland – Testudo the Terrapin.

He’s late to a meeting…because he’s a turtle. This is up there with the Oregon Duck starring out at the ducks on the pond in terms of excellent uses of silent mascots in the ESPN series of commercials – although nothing beats the abuse that Otto the Orange gets in the ads.
