The NFL season is approaching and fans all over the world are catching football fever. Fans of the Baltimore Ravens may be catching something else, however. Diehard fans of the team are certainly rabid, but now it's possible they may have rabies.
NBC Washington is reporting that a bat landed on a person during the Ravens' Aug. 17 preseason game at M&T Bank Stadium. The fan brushed the bat away and authorities were unable to capture the animal for rabies testing. The Maryland Department of Health is urging people who came into contact with the bat to contact their local health department.
This is exactly how the movie Outbreak started, people. Except it was a monkey. And I'm pretty sure Dustin Hoffman isn't a Ravens fan. Of course, this is also how the movie Bats started, but no one has ever seen the movie Bats, including Lou Diamond Phillips. (He starred in the film.)
It's also not too late to rule out foul play. Could it be possible that this is all part of Texas A&M's diabolical master plan? It all makes sense:
1. Join the SEC
2. Unleash the Kyle Field Bat on an unsuspecting populace
3. Sell a bunch of T-shirts
My god. It has begun.
