Sunday, December 7: Gameday – Redskins @ Ravens

A word to anyone planning to make the road trip up here to the Quarrel For Laurel: it is windy and cold. Seriously windy. Like, weather advisory windy.

I dropped by the ExtremeSkins tailgate a bit earlier — while it was still light out, in fact — and the wind is whipping through the concrete stanchions underneath I-395.

The tents are constantly threatening to blow away in the wind, and at least one tabletop grill nearly toppled in a gust. A pot of oil took more than an hour to heat up to a suitable temperature for the fish fry (whole spot, which looked excellent), and TastesLikeChicken’s legendary tailgating “crack-on-a-stick” was cooling almost as soon as it came off of the toolbox grill. (It was still just just as addictive as advertised, though.)

Anyway, the point of all of this is to say two things:

  1. If you’re coming out here, whether to tailgate or just to watch the game, dress warmly and in layers. And,
  2. Be sure to factor the wind and cold in to your expectations for this evening. The flags on the goalposts are flying around pretty strongly right now, and the flags atop the stadium are even livelier, so a lot may depend on the running game tonight. Hopefully Clinton Portis is feeling better.
