There have been plenty of times over the past couple decades to say the NFL franchise in Washington is in the toilet, but on Sunday that description took on a whole new meaning.
As the Washington Football Team hosted the Chargers down in our nation's capital in a Week 1 matchup, Washington's fans were suddenly and unexpectedly hit with a deluge of what appeared to be raw sewage in the stands.
It was an absolute sight to behold as the liquid rained down from an overhang at FedEx Field:
Folks... that is straight-up gross.
Some highlights from this fan-filmed clip for me:
0:01: "That's sewage."
0:08: "That's how we celebrate!"
0:09: The poor guy in the yellow shirt trying to evade the splash zone
0:25-0:31: The wide sweep to show just how many people are watching toilet water rain down upon them
I don't know much about omens, but I can't imagine this is a good sign for a football team that was picked by some to be a bit of a dark horse in the NFC.
