Flash flood: Ravens' Smith gets off to a soggy start

BY foxsports • July 29, 2015

Here is a reminder that professional athletes face regular problems just like everyone else. Ravens receiver Steve Smith Sr. returned to his rented house in the Baltimore area this weekend only to find a flooded mess in his garage.

Turns out a leaky pipe was the culprit, as water ended up flooding his master bedroom closet before seeping into the floor, and eventually caused the wood beneath it to crash down on the garage below. A frustrating situation to come home to for sure, but thankfully no one was injured.

"My garage ceiling was my garage floor and there was water – a little baby stream – coming out of my garage," Smith said via the team's official website

Smith said he can't wait to get to his hotel room for the start of camp. "It’s going to be an interesting project going on in my garage. I’m kind of looking forward to the hotel life and the West Coast life during the season because they’re going to be doing some minor construction to my house for the next couple of weeks."
