NFL football in the D.C. area has been an abomination for many years. The Redskins have made a playoff appearance here and there, but they don’t commit to a solid front office structure. They cycle through head coaches like an assembly line and are even worse with public relations.
I never thought I’d see the day when the Redskins become less popular than any other sports team in town, but that happened in a recent survey when the Washington Mystics found themselves as popular as the Wizards — at least by one metric.
Anyway, if you drive up I-95 into Camden Yards in Baltimore, you’ll see M&T Bank Stadium where the Ravens play. They are a consistent NFL playoff team, 12-2 this year, and have the best quarterback in the game right now with Lamar Jackson.
Last night, the Ravens hosted the New York Jets and beat them 42-21. Jackson passed for five touchdowns and the Washington Mystics got a shout out too!
Oh yes, that’s why I wrote this!

2019 is certainly a year of sports championships in the D.C. area and the Mid Atlantic region as a whole. Baltimore isn’t exactly the Washington area. I’m definitely very happy to see that the Ravens gave the Mystics a shout out yesterday. It could be a good luck charm for their Super Bowl hopes in the next few weeks!
