The Washington Football Team spent the offseason completely replacing the playing surface at FedEx Field while team president Jason Wright continued to improve the fan experience.
Unfortunately, during the first half of Washington’s Week 1 game against the Los Angeles Chargers, a sewage pipe burst at FedEx Field, leading many fans running for cover.
Yes, this really happened. See for yourself.

Just when things started to look up for FedEx Field, this happened.
Not a great start to the season for the home field. Perhaps it was mirroring the early performance of the home team.
This from Michael Phillips of the Richmond Times-Dispatch:
Went over to see the burst pipe. Has mostly dried now. Some folks got “really wet,” in the recounting of nearby patrons.
Split verdict on whether it was sewage or not. Most felt it was just water.
One FedEx Field veteran: “Never seen anything like that before.” Indeed.

Things seem to be better now. Only at FedEx Field.
