Mud Mug

"Covered in mud, offensive guard Mike Person #68 of the San Francisco 49ers looks on after making a tackle on defensive back Troy Apke #30 of the Washington Redskins (not pictured) during the third quarter at FedExField on October 20, 2019 in Landover, Maryland."

The saying is weather makes pictures.

However, the problem is that viewers never really know what it's like to play and or photograph sports in weather.

It's great to watch a 'Mud Bowl' on television, but until you're soaking wet, one doesn't know what it really means to work in the elements for hours.

Thankfully the old adage is true. Mud, rain, snow, cold, heat - you name it - does help change the environments we often frequent. In this case, heavy rains drenched the natural grass field at FedExField making it a sloppy mess.

While play seemed slow because of mother nature, as the game progressed, conditions worsened.

That's when Mike Person of the San Francisco 49ers risked it all to make a tackle on a turnover - resulting in a warrior like mud mug.

Have to love the commitment of athletes willing to give it their all.
