BALTIMORE, Md. -- Ravens fans got a double treat Saturday night.
After watching Baltimore play its first home preseason game this year, an estimated 10,000 fans stayed at M&T Bank Stadium afterwards to watch Olympic swimmer and Baltimore native Michael Phelps win his record-breaking eighth gold medal.
The crowd cheered enthusiastically as Phelps and the United States won the 400-meter medley at approximately 11:10 p.m. Eastern time. Many hugs from fans followed once the victory was sealed.
Earlier in the night, Baltimore lost a 23-15 contest to the Minnesota Vikings.
