Over the years, Major League Baseball has seen dozens of wacky umpire ejections from fans to mascots to stadium organists to anything involving Bobby Cox, but never before had we seen an entire grounds crew told to hit the showers.

However, per Timmons, the grounds crew was not “ejected.” Rather, Timmons just did not want the entire grounds crew behind the tarp “especially with the infield in.” Now, what does the infield being in have to do with the grounds crew? I have no idea. The crew was just trying to do its job. A storm was rolling in, and they were ready to pounce on the opportunity to cover Camden Yards and protect that beautiful infield dirt. In fact, moments after Timmons told the grounds crew to vamoose, rain started downpouring hard, so I don’t blame the grounds crew at all for being out there when they were. After being told to leave, the grounds crew made like a well-oiled machine and promptly vacated the field in almost a single-file line. They looked like a squad of well-trained personnel. I just want to give props to the person in charge of that team.

By The Numbers: Washington Football Team pulls off a stunner

What a rollercoaster. If you didn’t have high blood pressure at the beginning of the game, you sure did by the end. The Washington Football Team defeated the Giants 30-29 to get their first win of the season, after Dustin Hopkins hit a 43-yard field goal with no time left. So how did we get here?

Well for one, Washington’s defense didn’t come out to play and let Daniel Jones live up to his Danny Dimes nickname.

But luck and for Taylor Heinicke, destiny was definitely on their side tonight. The Giants left two touchdowns on the field, with a 58-yard touchdown run from Daniel Jones called back for holding, and a wide-open drop by Darius Slayton in the end zone on a blown coverage.

And I haven’t even gotten to the good stuff yet. With Washington holding a 27-26 lead with 2:22 left in the game, Heinicke threw an untimely interception at the Football Team’s 25-yard line, his first real mistake of the game. However, this time, Washington’s defense was able to get a stop and hold the Giants to a field goal.

With exactly two minutes left in the game, Heinicke had the chance to atone his mistakes and see his legend grow among Washington fans, and he did just that, with a little help from the Giants’ special teams. After driving the offense down to the Giants 30-yard line, Dustin Hopkins came in to attempt a 48-yard game-winning kick. He missed and for a moment, it seemed like Heincke’s breakout performance would be all for naught. But Dexter Lawrence had gone offsides, giving Washington another chance for the win. This time, Hopkins was able to knock in the 43-yarder and the Football Team exited with the walkout victory.
