Despite the NFL at large refusing to endorse the politically polarizing Affordable Care Act, the Baltimore Ravens have partnered with Maryland Health Connection to do outreach for Obamacare within the state. And the worst part of it is I’m not familiar enough with football terminology to deliver the snappy puns this story requires.

Anyway, the state decided that since “71 percent of the uninsured population in Maryland have watched, attended or listened to a Ravens game in the past 12 months,” the team would be an ideal group to task with informing Obamacare’s target population of their new health coverage options come autumn.

The Ravens will begin their campaign Oct. 1, the beginning of a six-month enrollment period for Obamacare.

It’s too bad Ray Lewis isn’t still with the team, because if he were out there touting Obamacare, not only would you be informed, you’d also be insanely psyched.
