Exactly. She and MOM should've enjoyed the parade with the rest of the fans. Not from the floats with the players coaches and staff... both of them annoy me to no end...
It seems like things weren't that great for everyone at the stadium...
http://perryhall.patch.com/articles/...tized-1bab4c6bInstead, a mob of 40 people rushed our section, kicking about 40 of us out of our seats. We were threatened with our lives; they said if we didn't move they were going to stab us. We cried for help and the state police saw us, came up from the field, but did nothing. My kids were so scared and upset, crying.
That story sounds suspect...
"We came to have fun. ...instead a mob of 40 people came and attacked us and the state police did nothing..."
That just sounds made up." Sorry...
Could be, but for what motive? If you read through the comments, one poster says that he was in the same section and experienced it as well.
I got to the stadium at 1030, which I wish they would have instructed everyone to do. Bad planning by the City and Ravens, but truly just an amazing time and an amazing day!
To be fair, Bisciotti said that they were hoping for around 30,000 at the stadium, so maybe forecasting was the issue, not planning.
I don't understand why this family would give up their seats. I would not have.
I had my share of problems when I went with my family down to the stadium. We were on the field, in the crowd, but far enough away from the stage that we couldn't see anything but the jumbotrons.
A group of young women came up behind us, and screamed (quite rudely) "EXCUSE ME!!!! EXCUSE ME!!!!" We made room for them to get by, even though we were elbow to elbow. I then heard her say, "You have to say 'excuse me' because they already think that black people are rude." I looked around at the other people around me and we just rolled our eyes.
Another group of youths came late and parked themselves next to us and were repeatedly yelling profanities (sh**, ni**a, f***, etc.). They didn't care that there were young children around. The guy was literally elbow to elbow with my 5-year-old son.
Around the same time, a group of young women started yelling at me because I had my son on my shoulders and they couldn't see anything (they had just come up behind us a couple minutes before). I told them I couldn't see anything either. They became even more obnoxious, so I took my family and left in the middle of the rally. It was the last straw.
As we were leaving, there were several youths blocking the stairs. We asked them to move over so that we could leave. They responded that they could not since there were people behind them and they couldn't move. My wife started getting upset, because she really wanted to leave. Eventually another group of people came by and were yelling "medical emergency!" and pushed those guys out of the way. We followed behind. It turns out that there was NO ONE behind the youths. They were lying to us. As we walked by them, I told them that they were rude and what they did was wrong. Not like they cared.
Even with all of this negativity, we still tried to have a good time. Some people will always behave a certain way, no matter what.
