Overlooking Lake Kittamaqundi, there stands a quaint statue honoring Columbia’s visionary founder, James Rouse, and his brother, Willard. The statue, entitled “The Dealings,” is an iconic landmark that everyone in Howard County knows, and one that I come across almost daily when I eat at one of Columbia’s awesome lakefront restaurants. So naturally, when I got on Facebook last night and came across Dylan Goldberg’s photo of the Rouses in full hockey gear rocking the red, I knew I had to share it with the world. Well – at least when I stopped laughing. I hope you enjoy.
And while we’re on the subject, you know what else needs to be decked out in Caps gear? Either the Francis Scott Key statue, the cast-iron greyhound dog from the Civil War, the Trompe l’oeil painting, or one of those 30 six-foot fiberglass keys in my hometown of Frederick, Maryland. Someone please put a ‘Winning‘ t-shirt over one of these glorious landmarks and send it to email@example.com.
