"Ever since Stephan Timchula adopted his 'Major Offense' superfan persona 10 years ago to honor the Baltimore Ravens’ (sometimes) strong offense, it has become his way of reminding fans that sports go beyond wins and losses. A longtime member of the Ravens Roost 115 and the Pro Football’s Ultimate Fan Association, Timchula shares the Special Olympics Maryland’s creed—that sports create new opportunities for people with disabilities—and he’s supported the nonprofit by proudly wading into the chilly waters at Sandy Point State Park for the past five Polar Bear Plunges. 'Most importantly, it’s a day dedicated to the Special Olympic athletes, and watching them have fun rubs off on everyone else,' says Timchula, who will take the plunge again on January 26. “It makes jumping into the icy-cold water worth it.’” - @kpacheco95.
