Will Gerry Sandusky Receive A Super Bowl Ring?
Now that the Baltimore Ravens have completed their “effing awesome” run to a Super Bowl XLVII championship, the celebration is on in Baltimore. Instead of focusing on their next opponent or strategy, the franchise can take a little time to celebrate and anticipate receiving their championship rings.
But there is one big question on my mind in regards to the Ravens’ commemoration of their title: will they be giving Gerry Sandusky a ring?
Now, before I go any further, I must mention that I am obviously not talking about the currently incarcerated Jerry Sandusky who shamed Penn State with his child sex scandal. The Sandusky that I am referring to is Gerry Sandusky, the Ravens’ play by play announcer.
Sandusky, who works for WBAL in Baltimore, has received a lot of scrutiny over the last year just for being of the same name as Penn State’s Sandusky, even receiving hateful messages and threats from people through social media and otherwise. Now he is just another vital part of a franchise that has just won a Super Bowl, and someone that did his job admirably with an incredible amount of people tuned in.
Of course, it is entirely up to the franchise who they give championship rings to, but it is entirely possible that Gerry Sandusky will be receiving a Super Bowl ring. Raise your hand if you ever thought you’d see that sentence in your lifetime outside of the Baltimore area. After the year he’s had, he absolutely deserves one.
