Stuck at your desk? Home on the couch? Three things you’re missing at RFK Stadium this afternoon as kickoff nears, aside from a picture-perfect parachute jump from the The Ranger Group’s all-veteran parachute team:
1. Brief weather report: Cold. Back to you in the studio.
2. Crowd: Could charitably be described as “late-arriving.” Some areas of the upper deck are caution-taped off, the lower levels are less than half full, and the hottest ticket appears to be the heated VIP/reception tent behind the Air Force end zone.
3. Signage: The traditional sports sponsors (Geico, Wendy’s, FedEx) and event sponsor (Northrop Grumman) have a presence, but the best sign might be over the corner of the Air Force end zone — “America’s Navy: A Global Force For Good.” A little advertising never hurts — and had that Oct. 1 game against the Falcons gone a little differently, Navy would’ve been able to bring the whole team.
