It might prove costly, but Ravens rookie defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan made the most of his first day in the snow Wednesday in Owings Mills.
The former Florida State Seminole and Lake City, Fla., native said he woke up Tuesday after arriving back from New Orleans to a warm fall day. A day later, he had to drive to practice in the snow — his first time ever seeing it. He wasn't sure he'd be able to drive home in it.
After practice in the team's field house and a post-practice workout Wednesday afternoon, Jernigan went outside and a team employee taught him how to begin a snowman.
He rolled a strong base and got halfway through a second level, talking the whole time about the accessories he’d need to compete it — a carrot, top hat, scarf. Then, around 3:35 p.m., a team official called out to him to ask if his defensive meeting was at 3:30 p.m.
Jernigan was operating under the assumption the meeting was still at 4 p.m, but everything was moved up. The rest of the team was in their meetings while Jernigan re-enacted "Frozen" on the practice field. So he might have rolled that snowman right into someone's doghouse.
