UMBC called ‘Surgeon General approved’ after upset

BALTIMORE (AP) — Plenty of college basketball fans were happy that the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, pulled off a stunning upset of No. 1 seed Virginia, but one UMBC alumnus beamed about the win on Facebook.

U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams posted a photo of himself wearing his old UMBC sweatshirt and grinning from ear to ear on the official surgeon general’s Facebook page.

“Who has two thumbs and an un-busted NCAA bracket? This guy!!!” Adams wrote.

Adams attended UMBC in the 1990s.

Adams said he had to make the post about health, so he pointed out some healthy things about UMBC, including its mascot — a Chesapeake Bay retriever — “dogs have been proven to be good for your mental health.”

“Bottom line: UMBC — it’s Surgeon General approved,” Adams wrote.
