                         Monday, April 27, 2015

  Mr. RUPPERSBERGER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today, in honor of the 40th 
anniversary of The University of Maryland Men's National Championship 
Lacrosse Team of 1975. And it's distinguished Coach Buddy Beardmore, 
and his players and coaches, and trainer Jim Weir who has since passed. 
Buddy brought two National Championship titles to Maryland, with his 
now famous ``Be the Best'' ethos, and brought the lacrosse world into 
the modern day age, with his weight training, running, and tactics both 
on and off the field. Their speed and strength and power were something 
to behold, and they are the benchmark by which any great team is 
measured today.
  ``Be the Best''
  Now beat Hopkins guys!
