Well, sports fans, it was an ugly day in Baltimore. The weather was amazingly beautiful but the football and, I am sad to say, the fans were u-g-l-y! The Frug and I had yet another babysitter (the Frug is not frugal w/the sitters, thank goodness!) and we drove an hour up to Baltimore to meet friends of ours and see the game. The folks we met are 2 of my favorite people! Not sure if they want to be named (and their names are pretty unique) so I shall call them Gary and Mary. Great people, always ready for fun, and are just happy people…you know the couples you meet up with who snipe at each other and make you feel uncomfortable? Not Gary and Mary. I’m just sad that they are geographically undesirable and so we don’t see them all that often. 😦
So, back to the fans. You may remember I blogged about our fun anniversary night in Fell’s Point and we saw all these young, fun, attractive people? Well, apparently those people don’t go to Ravens games! 😉 The men and women dress alike. Ravens team jerseys and purple camouflage pants.
It’s a really good look. Hot actually. Heavy sarcasm. Actually, the average woman I saw today looked like this:
So, envision Edna Turnblad in a Todd Heap jersey and purple camo pants. And she’s drunk. And maybe ready to kick your ass. The Bengals pulled ahead in the 4th quarter and Edna Turnblad and her mother, daughter, and grandkids all were screaming YOU SUCK REF! at the top of their lungs. Pretty. Oh, I texted Hope (Ravens fan who does NOT look like Edna above!) and asked where she was sitting…she texted back w/the info and the helpful tidbit ‘I’m wearing my Flacco jersey’…yeah, that’ll help me find you 😉
Also pretty was the old Sea Hag in the restroom who asked me ‘do you have any eyeliner I can borrow? I’ve cried all of mine off’ Um NO, I do NOT have any eyeliner that a STRANGER can borrow. So sorry. >;-)
Btw, *I* looked cute but I felt the hate rolling off the Ravens Hags (oooh! I like that term! or would they be Ravens Whores??) They were looking at me like ‘prissy Northern Virginia beyotch in your miniskirt and Gap tee and coordinating purple scarf!’ I was scared of them.
Anyway, won’t go into too much detail about the ride home. It was as ugly as the game. I drove, the Frug cursed the Ravens and had 2 beers while balancing 7 layer dip on his lap…sexay! LOL
** Editing in–The Frug says my assessment of the Ravens fans is completely inaccurate and that they are the same as any other NFL fans. Oookkkaaaayyyyy. Anyone want to weigh in on this?**
