The booze is always flowing, the food is top notch..and you'll learn words that you didn't even know existed! ( I've been known to impress my father a time or two with my vocabulary heh)
I quit wearing jerseys a few years ago. It's bad luck if I do. No purple Fridays for me. The past couple of weeks I have worn a gray ravens long sleeve T the day before the game. That seems to be ok.
In game varies.
I have to have the game on 2 TVs, upstairs and down. I go outside to smoke, but I have to figure out when to do it. If the defense does poorly while I watch, out I go. I watch the offense. I find it helps when I say to myself "just don't F up Joe" at the snap of the ball. Never tired watching a game with other people, or anywhere but home, but I'm not about to start now.
Meanwhile I know none of this changes the game, but it makes us feel like we have some control over something important to us. :)
btw, has anyone realized Joe is (mostly) clean shaven this year??? I mean, you see here he's got some stubble going on, but NOTHING like the last few years. Interesting.
Many years ago I bought (on sale at K-Mart!) a venerable collarless shirt in Ravens' away colors--it's white with purple, deep blue & gold stripes. What's freaky is that I acquired it at least 5 years before the team moved here.
For the playoffs I have taken to wearing this shirt on gameday with a white T-shirt underneath from the SB XXXV championship--SUPER BOWL XXXV
TAMPA, FLORIDA [SB35 logo] JANUARY 28, 2001
--& whatever mojo that combination holds appears to be unaffected by laundering (all those downwind thank me) or other clothing. I just make sure that it's on by kickoff. Needles ;) to say I will be wearing it on the evening of 3 Feb.
(BTW how cool is to be sending the team off with a rally on the 12th anniversary of SB XXXV?)
I'm about to jump into the Chesapeake bay to settle a deal I made with a pantheon of fictitious football gods, most of whom I created in the first place. How's that for superstition?
Sweet, enjoy the plunge!
Quick story, because while Rex has left sour tastes in my mouth, I do recall this...
In 2008, he was interviewing for HC jobs when the Polar Bear Plunge happened. After he ended up returning to Baltimore, he went back a week or two after and did his own plunge to "keep up his end" of the deal. He could've very easily just not done it, but I applaud him for going out and getting it done.

Paint toenails opposing teams colors. Wore blue past 3 weeks, Colts, Broncos and Patriots. Now gotta get 49ers scarlett.

You know it's going to be hard rooting for the Bengals after this love affair with such a winning franchise...
