Mocking Ravens Fans


It seems that some Baltimore Ravens fans that live in central, PA are not happy that WPMT in York, PA will be carrying the Ravens game.

Those fans have been calling and emailing the station to complain.

The station decided to throw a little shade at the Ravens fans with a post online.

Here is a portion:

To help battle the cognitive dissonance this crisis is engendering in many a Ravens-brain, I’ve come up with a list of things more fun than watching Ravens football for those whom facing a Sunday without the Purple and Black are ‘filled with fantastic terrors never felt before.’ See what I did there? (Ravens fans will have to ask a friend).

  • Paint a room. Watch it dry. This activity also brings with it a sense of accomplishment, often lacking on 3rd and long efforts for the Ravens.

    • to a Big Box Store. Get some stuff. Varying shapes and sizes and weights. No cart or basket. Find the longest line and wait in it. As the lady in front of of you writes a check for a box of tissues, you’ll know the fatigue the Ravens secondary feels getting boat-raced by Drew Brees and company.

  • Fill out those lists on Facebook — find out which Superhero or communicable disease you have the most affinity with.

  • Listen to Nickelback. Nearly fulfilling a soundtrack as Harbaugh whining to the refs.

  • Fold a fitted sheet. Talk about zone coverage!

  • Watch your phone charge. Make it competitive and find the juiciest socket in your domicile. Rename it the Ray Lewis socket.

  • Check work emails. Sunday Monday Funday all-in-Oneday!

  • Clean the Shower. Soapscum holds tighter than Ravens O-tackles

  • Re-do last year’s taxes. Practice makes perfect. Not for your football team, of course…

  • Floss. Really. Get in there.

  • Meditate. Ponder a life built around something more meaningful than a sports team which succeeds or fails regardless of your fanhood and brings you no actual reward or fulfillment.

  • Just keep calling and complaining. When in doubt, go with what you know. But not just FOX. Call everybody. Take it to the Supreme Court…Remember, they’d be winning if only you could watch in your lucky jersey!

Normally, FTVLive never thinks it is a good idea for TV stations to mock viewers. But in this case, it’s Ravens fans, so it is totally warranted.
