At 10:30 this morning 7 members of the Baltimore Ravens football team stepped out and showed up — for the 12th Annual Ravens Coat Drive at Helping Up Mission. The morning after a 22-20 time-expired-on-the-clock home loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, these guys made themselves available in the Baltimore community. Bravo!
Admittedly it was a friendly crowd of Ravens fans, but it still had to be uncomfortable for them to show up and face anyone — yet they kept their commitment to the men of HUM. Even Steeler fans were impressed!
And Fox 45 was here on campus documenting the whole thing — starting at 5AM and doing live-feed teasers every 30 minutes previewing this Ravens community outreach event.
So, from this 3-decade Redskins fan, special props to and a new level of respect for Joe Flacco, Elvis Dumervil, Marshal Yanda, Buck Allen, Daryl Smith, Kapron Lewis-Moore and Towson U’s Terrance West.
You guys are my AFC team forever!
