John Harbaugh Says He Wants The Ravens To 'Take Over' Washington D.C.

New, 4 comments

This tends to be a city of bandwagon fans, but for the most part, that hasn't applied to the football teams. Washington D.C. proper primarily roots for the Redskins, while those in Baltimore root for the Ravens. There's really not much overlap, mostly because of the storied history of the Redskins and the short history of the Ravens. So let's be honest: there's really no coalescence of events that would possibly allow the Ravens to take over the hearts and minds of Washington D.C. football fans.

But still, Ravens coach John Harbaugh will try. Harbaugh got so excited about his future with the organization that he decided to try to build his fanbase.

↵↵I love the Baltimore Raven fans. We're reaching out and trying to get more. We're trying to take control of this whole area. We'll take over Washington DC while we're at it. And head up into Pennsylvania and grab all those fans, and over to West Virginia and Virginia. Come on and be a Baltimore Raven fan because this is an exciting organization and exciting football team.

But why stop there, John? Why not go up to Philadelphia, and grab all those Eagles fans upset about their playoff loss? Why not go further south to North Carolina and scoop up Panthers fans who wanted Andrew Luck? Why stop at Earth? Why not go into space and get all those astronauts to become Ravens fans? You can tell them you beat the Steelers, and they wouldn't know any better.

Where's your ambition John!
