The parking lot at the Texas Roadhouse restaurant on Mountain Road was busy on Tuesday afternoon as a line crawled around the building and cars, trucks and SUVs streamed into the parking lot. There was no steak special—instead, it was a sea of purple and black Ravens jerseys and T-shirts as hundreds waited for an autograph from Baltimore Raven Haloti Ngata, #92.
Fans from Severna Park, Broadneck, Glen Burnie and other parts of the county paid $35 per ticket to have one of their memorabilia signed by the beefy athlete. Fans of all ages arrived with posters, footballs, helmets, jerseys and T-shirts, along with a Sharpie, for the coveted signature.
The event happened to coincide with a Jacobsville Elementary School fundraiser also being held in the parking lot where the school mascot (a jaguar) and a bake sale kept the Ravens fans entertained while waiting for their turn at getting an autograph.
