The Ultimate MHRI Raven's Fan

One of the great things about my job is that I get to meet many of the associates across MedStar.  It becomes even more special when they share some aspect of their life outside of work.

This week, Alton Henry, a new member of the Cardiovascular Core Laboratories, told me about how he has waited 12 years to go to the Super Bowl. When the Raven's got in, he was relentless to find a ticket.  In his words, "This was the best experience of my life. I got to see the greatest linebacker to ever play the position ride off into the sunset while sitting eight seats up from the field"

It is one thing to get the chance to go to the Super Bowl, and another to do so in style!  Attached is a picture of Alton preparing for the game with the artist who painted his body (yes, painted his body - that is NOT a shirt) and another picture with his friend just prior to the game! 

Alton, thanks for sharing with us.  Please feel free to post your comments - Alton promises to read them all!


  1. Wow!!!! I must admit, this is pretty awesome!

  2. This is truly amazing! I bet it felt like a dream and was worth every bit of effort to get there. The body paint ravens jersey is gorgeous!!!

  3. I agree with Dr. Weissman "It is one thing to get the chance to go to the Super Bowl, and another to do so in style!". Alton not only fulfilled his 12 years long dream, but he did it with creativity, and that shows his energetic spirit for the Baltimore Ravens. Also, Alton sat eight seats away from the field that is beyond amazing. Alton I am glad you were able to witness history. Dr. Weismman I am looking forward to reading more of your blogs. Keep them coming, I am blogger myself.

  4. The paint job is phenomenal. I am sure the players appreciate fans like you.

  5. Amazing story!! This is awesome! Congrats Alton!
