BALTIMORE (WJZ)—As our city continues to come to grips with the fact we’re not going to the Super Bowl, a local mom is preparing for a trip to the Pro Bowl.

Mary Bubala reports she won a contest and got a surprise send-off.

It’s not every day Ray Rice shows up at your front door. But Tuesday, as captured by our media partner the Baltimore Sun, Rice surprised Joanne McShalley at her Parkville home to congratulate her for winning a national contest that’s sending her to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii this weekend.

“It’s like Publishers Clearing House showing up at my door,” McShalley said.

“She’s always going to be a winner for what she’s done in her community, and it means the world to me because this is the time now that I get to get out into the community,” Rice said.

McShalley was named P&G Super Parent for her commitment to raising active kids and her community involvement.

McShalley’s son is an eighth-grader at Immaculate Heart of Mary in Towson, a school Rice visited in December after it won an NFL Play 60 contest.

McShalley found out she also won that day, but with the help of hundreds of votes she was named the ultimate P&G Super Parent and is now going to the Pro Bowl.

Rice won’t be there but he practiced his skills on Madden with McShalley’s son, who’s also headed to Hawaii.

“You represent us out there, and when you come back to Baltimore, I will be online waiting for you, laughing,” Rice said.

Both Rice and Terrell Suggs announced Tuesday they are not going to the Pro Bowl.

McShalley and her family will assist in NFL Play 60 activities.
