Fan Sees Joe Flacco on a Skateboard, Calls Ravens G.M. to Complain

For those of you who were not aware, Joe Flacco is under the microscope. Every player who is about to play in a conference championship game is watched closely, but Flacco is a unique case. Many believe the Ravens continue to win despite him, so they are waiting for Joe to screw up so they can talk about him not being an elite NFL quarterback. Then there are Flacco’s neighbors, who are just concerned for his safety heading into the big weekend.

“I’d never been on a skateboard in my life, so I was literally riding it about 10 feet down my driveway just to see if I could stand on it and stay upright,” Flacco explained Wednesday on NFL Total Access. “One of my neighbors must have called in looking for (Ravens general manager) Ozzie Newsome and left a voicemail on his secretary’s phone saying, ‘Hey, man, you got to let Joe Flacco know we’re trying to win the Super Bowl around here! He’s at home riding a skateboard. Somebody’s got to let him know what the deal is.'”

I’ll admit I probably fall under the category of insanely hardcore fan who should mind his own business, but this would bother me too.  Flacco is an adult who can make his own decisions, but the fact that he had never been on a skateboard before doesn’t exactly help his case.  That has broken wrist written all over it.

No matter what he does, it seems like Flacco has to hear it from everyone.  He has heard it from the media all season long and even had to deal with some criticism from a veteran teammate earlier this week.  If Flacco can limit turnovers and help the Ravens win a Super Bowl, he could very well prove he is one of the most mentally tough players in the league.

    Re: Flacco and skateboard. You mention Pavarotti “would not swallow swords before a performance at the Met”. Make that Domingo, alive and performing at the age of 71. Pavarotti passed away years ago.
