Yeah when Flacco and Harbs are gone..... in line ten years. :grbac:
To the OP, nice man, I'm really considering something my self actually.
Very nice Batman55. I've considered it but was always worried about a symbol change at some point. A lot easier to keep buy new Ravens stuff for my car and wearing the latest gear.
Sean, an old British acquaintance from Sunspot who posted as Cockney Raven, once commented that the true test of a fan is how loyal s/he remains to the team during its inevitable time in the wilderness--that it took a lot more fortitude to attach one's sporting heart to a perennial outsider like West Ham (his team in English footie) than a ManU. And in the parity-besotted NFL, no team can count on staying on top forever.
As the slaves on the back of the Roman generals' chariot are alleged to have whispered in their ears during their triumphal marches, Memento mori. (For that matter sic transit gloria mundi works pretty well too.)
(Just FTR were I a tattoo-sporting kind of guy I might've had the artist add under the logo something like--
SB XXXV CHAMPIONS 1/28/01
SB XLVII CHAMPIONS 2/3/13
--& left plenty of room below that. YMMV)
I have a tattoo (a couple). If I were start with a clean slate (no tats) I would probably not get them at all. As you age you change... What I put on my body at the age of 19 or 20 is not what I want there now. And anything relating to sports or a team can have a questionable outcome... based on what a couple posters have mentioned. (Hell, you may have a son who plays for the Steelers or Browns in 20 years...) Haha... I don't know. Then what ya gonna do? ;)
Back in college I saw the school's whole football team go out and get "1994 League Champ" tattoos... only to have the title stripped 3 weeks later because they started an academically ineligible player all season. lol.
And for everyone who is worried about them changing their logo, or leaving... Who cares, I got this to remember what great memories I had in 2012, my first trip to baltimore, getting to see rays last dance in person, heckling patriot fans in foxboro in the afccg, and taking my fandom to fanatic status. Even if or when they change their logo, ill never ever forget what an amazing year 2012 was!
