Game Day In Baltimore
Hey there. Sitting in the press box now, awiating the arrival of my fellow Posties. We have a crew of 5 covering this one, including Wilbon, so should be fun.
Drove some friends to the game and hit two tailgates with some friends and family memebers as well. Been at the stadium since around 11. People are crazy about this game.
Some brave/stupid Colts fans were tailgating near us at one point; and, let's just say I'd be surprised if there are still wheels on the SUV by the time the sun goes down. As I walked by the unfortunate gentlemen were also gaining an intimate knowlegde of the, eg, backsides, of a few of the Ravens fans. It is definitely intense around here.
Everyone in Baltimore was wearing purple yesterday and today, even the TV anchors. One weatherman was wearing a Ravens jersey on camera with his head painted black and purple with a Ravens logo on his forehead. I was I was kidding about this. That's way overboard, and I don't think would even fly in some provincial college town like Gainesville, but it was in full force here.
As you guys know, I am a Baltimore guy through and through and love my hometown, but we do tend to lose perspective sometimes. Regarless, though, this game means much more than football to folks around here. I am bracing for what should be the most charged game-time atmosphere I have ever seen. Wish the press box windows were open so I could truly appreciate the noise.
Hope you guys are having a great wekeend and enjoy the games.
