Rain Descends On Warm Up

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 25, 2011 – 7:30 pm

The skies have opened up in Charm City, and the few fans that had already gone to their seats, retreated for cover.

Earthquakes this week, thunderstorms today, hurricanes in the forecast; what’s next?

Keep your eyes open for a cloud of locust.

Long snapper Nick Sundberg and Sav Rocca are wisely out practicing punts and snaps in the downpour.  Sorry baseball fans, no rain delay for the NFL.  It takes lightning for that.

The last time that the Redskins had a game called in the preseason due to a thunderstorm was in 2007 against the Ravens on August 25, 2007.  The Redskins won that game 13-7 on a Dallas Sartz (linebacker) touchdown and two Shaun Suisham field goals before the game was called early in the third quarter.  That’s the last time the Redskins beat the Ravens in the preseason or regular season.

Rain the forecast seems like a good thing.

Here are some sights and scenes from outside of the stadium before the game:

As some of you may or may not know, former Orioles pitcher Mike Flanagan was found dead in his home yesterday.  He was a great players and a great member of the DMV community during his last four decades in the region.  Thoughts and prayers with his family today.

***INSTANT UPDATE: The sun is poking through the clouds and players have returned to the field.  The fans are slowly trickling back in.***

    who cares who wins in the preseason, its all about 1 vs 1, 2 vs 2, and 3 vs 3. Our 1’s pushed b-mores around like a school yard bully, and its safe to say that if the redskins didnt commit penalties on end of the drives, the ravens may now of even scored in the first half. they were so bad that harbaugh made them come out in the 3rd (unscheduled) and play the 1’s against our 2 and 3’s. you judge ALL preseason games not on the final score but how your starters did. and for the reg. season, were split.
