The Ravens did not play well at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday against the Bengals, but for a moment during the loss the focus was not on the the game. While the Ravens were facing the Cincinnati Bengals, a fan who claimed they were looking for a drink attempted to climb into the radio booth at the stadium.

Anyone listening to the radio broadcast heard some of the interaction, with the broadcasters confused about what was happening. During the first quarter, play-by-play broadcaster Gerry Sandusky was calling the game, when color analyst Obafemi “Femi” Ayanbadejo interrupted, clearly worried. 

“What — what, what, what are you doing?! What are you doing?” Ayanbadejo said, according to the Baltimore Sun.

What followed was 17 seconds of silence until Sandusky explained what had happened. Here’s what he said, via the Baltimore Sun:

“If you were listening, you heard Femi say ‘What are you doing? What are you doing?’ He was not talking to the players or coaches. We actually had a fan who was trying to climb into the broadcast booth. She said, ‘I’m a veteran and I’m looking for a drink.'”

Ayanbadejo answered saying, “Yeah, I don’t serve drinks at the game. I might make some cocktails at home but this is not the time or place.”

That is not something you typically see on game days and I do not recommend trying it.

“You just never know what’s going to pop up or who’s going to show up on game day,” Sandusky said.

The Bengals defeated the Ravens, 41-17.
