He may have been first in the hearts of his countrymen, but George Washington has not necessarily been first in the minds of composers.

"I beseech thee, for the sake of him in whom thou art well pleased, the Lord Jesus Christ, to admit me to render thee deserved thanks and praises for thy manifold mercies extended toward me," Frazier intoned, saying the words were once offered to God by Washington.

Jonathan Graham arrived at Maryland from Penn State in late summer amid uncertainty about his playing status with regard to the NCAA and his potential playing time among a crowded frontcourt. After getting an unspecified hardship waiver that cleared him to play shortly before the season opened, Graham spent most of the first eight games waiting for a chance. It came Sunday in a 77-75 loss to George Washington, when a combination of early foul trouble for a few of Maryland's big men and a lack of effort by many wearing white uniforms at the Verizon Center left Terps coach Mark Turgeon no other option.

" While I left Charm City for good in 1955 (long before the advent of that moniker), I still subscribe to Major League Baseball's Extra Innings so I can watch the Orioles on TV all summer. And for years I tried to put a hex on the Indianapolis Colts for sneaking out of town with our name in he middle of the night.

Mark Turgeon has never been a big fan of Maryland playing every year in the BB&T Classic. Despite victories over Notre Dame and George Mason his first two seasons, Turgeon was looking forward to the Terps' contract with the event running out after Sunday's game against George Washington. Some might say that Maryland didn't wait until next year to not show up at the Verizon Center, as the Terps didn't appear to come to play for the first 35 minutes against the Colonials. But Trailing by 14 points and playing without junior guard Dez Wells, who had fouled out with a little over six minutes left, Maryland nearly pulled one of its bigger comeback wins under Turgeon.

We cannot tell a lie. The National Museum of Dentistry is celebrating George Washington's birthday on Sunday. Honest. The museum will have on display an original set of Washington's dentures and will offer tours of the George Washington Gallery, which features artifacts and information relating to the first president's dental history. Actor Dean Malissa of the American Historical Theatre portrays the founding father in an interactive performance, "Coming of Age Along the Potomac," at 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. Also, visitors are invited to try on Colonial tri-cornered hats, hear period music, participate in scavenger hunts, visit a Colonial play station and, of course, have some cherry pie (and cherry soda)

At Ayers Saint Gross, Birx has had the opportunity to work on projects as diverse as the construction of a hospital in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and the transformation of ruins in the ancient walled city of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, into a museum. "There's always new things to learn," said Birx, Ayers Saint Gross' chief operating officer. Not only do his projects offer variety, but the business itself is also constantly changing, offering new challenges: "The way we did buildings in 1978 is completely different from the way we do buildings in 2013.
