Some politicians fancy themselves as “a man of the people.” It’s one thing to say it. It’s another to have the wherewithal to get in touch with the common folk with your boots on the ground, key-gash a can of cheap beer, and delete that thing down the hatch with fans of your local professional football team.
Check out Maryland Gov. Wes Moore making the rounds at the Baltimore Ravens’ tailgate on Championship Sunday, mixing it up and throwing down a brew at the swiftest of speeds (Taylor pun intended).
This will have Ravens simps rushing to post headlines or tweets that say, “RAVENS BY A MILLION!” as if this has any bearing on the outcome of the game. We’re getting quite a few juicy storylines right before kickoff, though.
T-Swift is dating legendary Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who had to fend off Ravens idiot kicker Justin Tucker from interfering with Patrick Mahomes’ warm-up routine. Baltimore is doing everything in its collective power on and off the field to ensure that their superstar quarterback, Lamar Jackson, gets a shot at the Lombardi Trophy to silence the haters once and for all.
Point being: Gov. Moore did the right thing here. Don’t make some bold, public proclamation that could backfire. Talk is cheap. Get down there with the fellas at the tailgate and endear yourself to millions of Ravens fans across the globe via the action of imbibing in a most endearing fashion.
See? Encouraging people to wear a certain color to support the team is harmless. Much safer rhetoric. Whomever is Moore’s speechwriter/social media brainstormer is doing something right.
No one can deny that this is Baltimore's time! #RavensFlock, you know the deal, Purple Friday tomorrow!
Even if the Ravens lose, you can’t convince me that Moore won’t be reelected when the ballots go out next. I checked. Maryland is one of the states that doesn’t have term limits for governor. Wes Moore might’ve locked up a lifetime tenure in a high seat of public office in the past several hours alone – even if he doesn’t know where the Kansas City Chiefs are located.
