His kids go to the same school as mine, too... <BR> <BR> Moved out here in 2006, miss baltimore lots, usually make it back for a home game once a year still. <BR> <BR> Lets go ravens 2015! Wed, 23 Jul 2014 17:54:51 EST It's divisional baby! Cincy is leading this thing, and we're tied with the Browns! Please tell me this is a joke! Let's smoke the Steelers this weekend, and hope the Lions tear a strip off the Bengals :) Thu, 17 Oct 2013 03:25:22 EST Super Bowl Trivia Time Super Bowl Trivia Time.... <BR> <BR> Since 1993 (including the upcoming game), there have been 27 different starting Quarterbacks in the Super Bowl. They have hailed from 26 different colleges. <BR> <BR> Name the one college that has produced two Super Bowl Quarterbacks since 1993. <BR> <BR> <em>281</em> Sat, 26 Jan 2013 13:52:23 EST Where will you be watching the Super Bowl? I'll be in Mexico. Hope I can find it on the telly!! Thu, 24 Jan 2013 02:43:39 EST We should be going crazy here!! Woot woo! Awesome win today for our Ravens! Was bittersweet to see Ray Lewis do his last dance, but I thought it was wonderful that they put him out as running back for the knee. Gooooooooooooo Ravens!

Take that! Ben Rapistbanger! Sun, 8 Jan 2012 21:09:06 EST Why We Need to Be Houston Texans Fans for a Week I have determined we need to be ardent Houston Texans fans for a week. Here is why. <BR> <BR> If the Texans win, they come here for the Divisional Round. Houston should be a relarive pushover, what with all their injury problems. <BR> <BR> More importantly, Pittsburgh and New England would have to play each other, and one would have to lose before the winner faces us. If Houston loses, however, we likely will have to face both the Squealers and the Cheaters to get to the Super Bowl. <BR> ... Tue, 3 Jan 2012 06:38:34 EST Weekely Spark 1/2/2012 I found the article on Binge eating very informative. <BR> <BR> If you have not read it. It is excellent.

I am always waiting for the next bad thing to happen to dash all our hopes and dreams. <BR> <BR> What happens if Flacco gets hurt? Will the Ravens back-up QB (whose name escapes me for obvious reasons) be able to run things, not having played a minute since pre-season? <BR> <BR> Just wondering.

Wed, 28 Sep 2011 19:50:16 EST Last Sunday's Game Loved last Sunday's game. <BR> <BR> I particularly liked that the commentators recognized that Flacco does not get the respect he deserves. I think Flacco did an excellent job last game. Mon, 26 Sep 2011 20:03:11 EST Let's go Ravens! Enjoying the game today. Totally redeemed themselves from last weekend. Sun, 25 Sep 2011 18:11:31 EST I think they are afraid of us. I extended this invitation to the AZ Cardinals and WA Seahawks: <BR> <BR> I would like to propose a Game/NFL Season for you. It would run Oct. Nov. Dec. Jan. (4 games) Each 4 weeks every month would be a half. Take your points from September as listed on SA and record the number of fitness min. and points each team has. The team with the greatest percentage increase would win the half. (IE: Ravens start with 1250 fitness min. and Seahawks 1575 At the end of the month R- 1520 S-2110 Ravens g... Sun, 25 Sep 2011 16:08:29 EST Team Challenges In looking at the team challenges they all seem to be geared toward those who are somewhat active. <BR> <BR> I don't know that you would get a coach potato to buy into any of those challenges. To the Team leaders I would suggest we set 3 challenges. 1. Coach potato - to get someone doing nothing started. 2. To get those who have started to the next level. 3. To encourage those who have a regular routing to continue and motivate those following behind. <BR> <BR> I see that of the 3 ... Sat, 24 Sep 2011 15:00:15 EST Does this team have a pulse? Can we resuscitate this team? <BR> <BR> Respond: I'm in. If you are still have interest in this team. Wed, 21 Sep 2011 19:03:39 EST Team Goals? I just joined up. I'd like to have a few team goals. Any ideas? I like the idea of tracking how many minutes we each exercise a week, or how many points we get. It's already tracking that anyways. . . Tue, 20 Sep 2011 18:18:56 EST Now what? The Ravens are on the field and still no Purple Haze activity. <BR> <BR> Anyone home??? (hearing echo) Sat, 20 Aug 2011 22:51:59 EST Knock, Knock, Knock. Anyone Home? Saw your team fitness minutes on Spark America. <BR> <BR> Though I would join and push up your total. At least get ahead of the that other bird team. <BR> <BR> Seems as though there is no one home. <BR> <BR> If anyone sees this message could you please let me know if there are any Ravens Fan events scheduled for the near future. <BR> <BR> Fri, 29 Jul 2011 10:00:53 EST Coaching changes Ok. I know I am new here but we have to get people back in the loop. So here is a topic that all real fans have to have an opinion on: <BR> <BR> What do you think of the coaching changes or lack of changes that has transpired and where do you think it is going to move the team? I think that Cameron should have been replaced but understand with the CBA talks going on it was in the best interest of the team to keep some continuity in case of a lockout & shortened training camp. Harbaugh cl... Tue, 25 Jan 2011 12:14:10 EST Hello Hello, <BR> <BR> I am new to sparkpeople and Purple Haze. Great to see there is a page for us Ravens fans. Of course, at this point I have to be a GreenBay fan for the rest of the season. I root for the Ravens & whoever is playing the steelers! I'm looking forward to some Ravens football talk even in the off season. It is never too soon to start getting ready for next year. <em>334</em> Mon, 24 Jan 2011 17:49:10 EST Ravens Fan in Florida Hi Purple People: <BR> <BR> I am a transplant Raven's fan living now in Florida and its great to have this team. I am proud to say I converted my husband from a Redskin fan to a Ravens fan 11 years ago. And was fortunate enough to work for the catering company in the suites for one season. <BR> <BR> But now in Florida so thanks to Directtv we can watch all the games. <BR> <BR> Good Luck tomorrow to the team. Sat, 8 Jan 2011 09:09:40 EST ANYONE out there?? Just wondering where everyone went. I KNOW Ravens fans just don't dissapear like this :) Sun, 2 Jan 2011 07:18:21 EST Hi to all! My favorite team is the Ravens. I am a season ticket holder. The other teams I like are: <BR> <BR> Whoever beats the Deadskins <BR> Whoever beats the Pittsburgh Cockroaches (It seems like their fans are everywhere and unwanted anywhere except that Burg that is truly a Pit) <BR> Whoever beats the Indianapolis Irsays <BR> <BR> Marty Tue, 19 Oct 2010 10:12:26 EST Go RAVENS! Awesome game today! We've lost so many close ones before. So great to pull off the last drive and then get the Ray Lewis interception to seal it. <BR> <BR> <em>244</em> Sun, 3 Oct 2010 18:29:41 EST I bleed purple Hey everyone!! My name is Kellie and I just joined this team. I was so happy to find it on here because I am one of the biggest RAVENS fanatics ever!!! lol. It's great to have found a team that loves the RAVENS just as much as I do!!! <em>334</em> Sat, 8 May 2010 14:51:06 EST Terrell Owens? The Baltimore Sun reported today that the Ravens are "interested" in Owens. Harbaugh thinks "he's a good guy and a good player" "He had a good last year, we watched him on tape, and he was very effective" <BR> I can't believe they would be interested in him! Too much ego for our team - but that is just my opinion. Sun, 28 Feb 2010 19:06:45 EST Playoff game 2 Go Ravens!!! Beat those Colts (ex-Baltimore horses). We lost to them last time by 1 point. We need to start just like the last game and keep the penalties down to a minimum. Tue, 12 Jan 2010 22:16:07 EST Playoffs! Anyone excited that we made it to the playoffs? Okay so there were times I was worried during the oakland game but we got the "W"! Mon, 4 Jan 2010 15:53:43 EST Nov 1: What a great day for football! Okay so it was a little bit wet the first quarter. (But only needed light rain gear.) The weather cleared - there was a slight chill in the air (football weather). And the big plus - Despite some questionable calls the Ravens just looked great - offense and defense - they just rocked! It was a great day for football!! Mon, 2 Nov 2009 13:20:55 EST Ravensgirl in Northern Virginia How pleasantly surprised I was to find this group! I live in Sterling in Northern Virginia but am originally from Maryland and am a rabid Ravens fan! In fact if you are in Virginia you may have seen me jetting around town in my VW Beetle with RVNS GRL license plate ;-) <BR> <BR> I have been honoring purple Friday in N.VA for 5 years! Sat, 26 Sep 2009 10:39:54 EST Get together to watch Ravens/Browns game in N.VA If anyone would like to meet up to watch the game tomorrow at 1pm, I'll be at the Glory Days Grill in Sterling, VA. It's blacked out & CBS will be airing the Eagles! <BR> <BR> I'll be the girl in the #5 in the throng of Burgundy & Gold. (heeee heeee) Sat, 26 Sep 2009 10:14:52 EST Ready for a new season? So are we getting pumped for Thursday? Think we can limit the injuries? Sun, 9 Aug 2009 12:11:24 EST Ravens fan from day 1 Hey wow, Baltimore Ravens fans- awesome. I have been a fan from day 1. Always loved football but never had a team, I grew up in the western Pa area and no way was I going to be a Steelers fan. Now I live in the York PA area. Moved here in 91, rooted for the Jaguars halfheartdly until the ravens came to be. Even had a dog named raven(RIP) Still have family living in western PA and they all are fans of the black and gold, so whenever I go visit I drag out alot of purple, and wear it proudly as ... Mon, 20 Jul 2009 17:22:17 EST Ravens- yes! (O's and Terps, definitely no) Hey everyone, I'm new to the site and the team. I've lived in Baltimore City my whole life, so I was totally psyched when we got the Ravens. However, and I know this is blasphemy, I'm a Yankees fan. As for the Terps, I could never support them. I'm very devoted to my own college. Sat, 28 Mar 2009 20:35:06 EST Ray Lewis I'm new to these message boards, but I just had to add one message to say I'm SOOO happy we re-signed Ray Lewis. He's a great player and active in our community. This is a great day for Baltimore!! <em>224</em> Thu, 5 Mar 2009 12:13:30 EST C-mac #21 Who here things letting C-mac go was good for the team? I have mixed feelings b/c he is a great cover corner with the exception of the way he jumps double-moves like I jump krispy kremes. <BR> <BR> I like him as a player, but he is getting older (32) and he has missed 18 games out of the past two years with knee injuries. <BR> <BR> Jerry Tue, 17 Feb 2009 12:41:13 EST NEXT YEAR I just wanted to wish all of the Purple Haze Sparkers "Healthy lifestyle" and see you next fall. <BR> <BR> Tue, 3 Feb 2009 14:10:53 EST Oh Man.... Well..what did you think???? <em>39</em> Sun, 18 Jan 2009 22:33:17 EST Hello, I'm new, but not to the Ravens... I'm a new SparkPeople member, but an old "Balta-moron" as I've been called. I might live in Michigan right now, but I will always ROOT-ROOT-ROOT for the home team! Big O's fan too! Miss those crab cakes!!!!!! There's no place life home!!! Sat, 10 Jan 2009 21:17:38 EST Hello my fellow Ravens Fans!!! :o) I am SO happy to find other Ravens fans on here. I am a DIEHARD fan and I look forward to my sundays in front of the TV watching Ray, Ed, Samari and the rest of the guys. <BR> <BR> Since I live in NJ and am about 30 mins from Philly people around here tend to be either Eagles, Pittsburgh or Giants fans and let's just say I am anti Eagles, Pittsburgh and Giants. <BR> <BR> Again, it's great to meet other fans. Sun, 2 Nov 2008 09:19:33 EST Hello Hi, is there anyone out there? Tue, 21 Oct 2008 07:28:23 EST Healthy Tailgating Any tips for what to make for Tailgating? Thu, 14 Aug 2008 15:50:29 EST Who will be Quarterback? A week or so ago, there was talk about Brett Favre coming to Baltimore! Today's news articles about camp talk about our three: Boller, Smith and Flacco. Smith looks to be the fan favorite right now. Sun, 27 Jul 2008 09:40:21 EST How cool to find Ravens fans on this website My husband and I are huge football fans! Ravens and Raiders. We try to see a couple of games a year. For this season we are trying to go to Baltimore to watch them play the Raiders. Anyways, my name is Heidi and I started about 1 1/2 weeks ago, I love it so far. This site just keeps getting better and better. Fri, 29 Feb 2008 16:16:42 EST Hey Just wanted to drop in and say hey!! I have three boys, 12,13 and 20, I have been married to my soul mate for over 20 years, and I LOVE THE BALTIMORE RAVENS!!! <BR> <BR> WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOO!!! It is nuts around my house when it is football season!!! <BR> <BR> Blessings, <BR> Ronnie Thu, 28 Feb 2008 12:29:36 EST MacPhail's moves...are you happy or not? The Tejada trade, the Bedard trade...what do you think? Mon, 25 Feb 2008 09:16:22 EST How deep will the Terps go? That is, if they even make the tournament. Mon, 25 Feb 2008 09:15:02 EST Take me to your leader. So, I started this page so we could get some Baltimore sports representation on this site. Who are you, where are you from, and what is your biggest goal? <BR> <BR> Jonathan from York, PA (B-more originally!). My goal is to drop 50 lbs. Sun, 24 Feb 2008 15:26:02 EST Who will be the Raven's 2008 1st round pick? Personally, I love that we usually go best available player. I'd like to see a DE or QB. <em>104</em> Sun, 24 Feb 2008 15:22:24 EST
