Ravens at the Polar Bear Plunge
Tomorrow is the Polar Bear Plunge at Sandy Point State Park put on by the wonderful guys in the Maryland State Police. :cool:
Thousands of crazed Ravens Fans and just good hearted souls from all walks of life will jump in the freezing waters of Chesapeake Bay to help out the terrific athletes of Special Olympics Maryland! :crazy:
I'm not sure if any Ravens players are going but they've been heavily involved over the last several years. Here's a terrific inspiring video with Joe Flacco, Mike McCrary and others.
Regardless of how many players are participating, rest assured Our Fans will show up!
The Ravens Roosts, Ravens Nests and Raven Manaiacs have over 40 teams and 350 Plungers registered. Online donations are over $60,000 right now and that generally triples on Plunge Day because of all the checks and cash that gets turned in. That total doesn't even take into account the thousands of individual Ravens Fans who are plunging with other teams or independently.
I mean, who is better 'qualified' to jump in the cold ass water for a great cause then folks who like to stand around drinking beer all day at tailgates and watching football games in freezing weather lol!? :D
Here's the Plunge website. Scroll down to the R's and check out all the Ravens Fan teams! If you want to join one or sponsor a fellow Ravens fan, just click on the team you like and follow the directions. The deserving and inspiring kids of Special Olympics Maryland will love you for it!
So who's going?!!!
GO RAVENS FANS!!! :thumbup:
This one's for you!
