Yeah, we usually do 2 a year. We played once in July already, and then the 26th. We also play up in Stewartstown, PA at the Naylor Vineyards twice a year too if you get up there. We'll be there this Saturday, and then September 9th.
If you do get to Boordy next year, you have to come over and say hello when we break.
BTW, again not that you can't go to my website and see it, but since everyone is comfortable with names, mine is Mike.

Ok, I guess I'll use this reply to tell a bit about myself. So ladies, pull up a seat and get naked.....oops, wrong website.:p
I'm 50 years old...but actually look much younger than that. I'm rather handsome and deboner...eh...debonior' or however you spell it.
I was born in a little town smack dab in the center of Pennsylvania, called Bellefonte...about 10 miles from State College. It was a raging snow storm outside, but it was St. Pattys day, and I said I be comin out today boys!
My dad(who was in the Navy) was on a ship outside of Boston, and made his way to see me soon afterward. We soon scooted down to Key West Fl for a couple of years, then to Morrocco Africa, New Jersey, Yokohama Japan, then to Forrest Heights MD for 5th and 6th grade. Back to PA while dad was on a ship. Then to Pensacola Florida where I graduated from Escambia High School....the same school Emmitt Smith would later graduate from....You might say, I blazed the trail for him.ZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz......
Oh! Sorry, dozed off for a sec. I started out a Steeler fan as far as football...but growing up was more of a baseball fan(Go Pirates! Just to piss all you O's fans off:D ). I did play nose guard on a league team when I was 15...hence where the "89" comes from, as that was my number.
When the Steelers played the Cowboys in the SB for the 2nd time, I was getting more interested in Football as a spectator and since the Steelers had already won a couple of SB's at that time, and because I've always believed Texas to be my spiritual home(hence the TEXAS tattoo on my left arm), decided to root for the Cowboys....(I also rooted for the Cowboys in SBV, just to piss all you old Colts fans off:D ).
After retiring from the Navy...which included two stints in MD...Annapolis at the Naval Academy 1982-1984( yep, I was here when the Colts departed)...and my final duty station the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda...I decided to stay in MD for good. Got divorced, the Ex took my two boys with her down to FLorida....Lived in Gaithersburg and Silver Spring. Met a wonderful lady who I've shared 10 years of marriage with. We lived in Germantown for 4 years and then just last year moved out west to Hagerstown.
My youngest son is attending Baltimore International College, training to be a chef. My oldest is in construction down in Florida.
When the Ravens came into existence, I thought "oh goody, a local team I can root for that's NOT the Redskins". Got free tickets to the final game of the '98 season... walked into the stadium still a Cowboys fan, walked out a Ravens fan...I done caught the purple fever!
Made it to at least one game a year...afterwards....in 2000 got to go to 3 games including the great game over the Jags, and the Denver Playoff victory.
Finally got season tickets in 2002, and am gearing up for another great year of Ravens football, tailgating and sharing with my friends!
My name is christopher I'm crowdog's son. I go to Baltimore International College. I just finished my 1st year and getting ready to start my 2nd. Dad did not mention that he was stationed in HI where my brother and me were born on the Island of Oahu. At the age of 3 we took a road trip from Cali stopped in Dallas Texas to visit my moms family than we visited dads parents in Pensacola FL. and last in MD. and as my dad mentioned I moved to FL. with my mom and stepdad. Later I found myself at a boarding school in west TN where I did all 4 years of high school. Went back to FL. for six months to work and save up money before comming up here to B-more for school in Jan. 06.
Now it's time for football, when I was born dad was a cowboys fan so I was for 12 years until I converted to a Bucs fan. So after 7 years and living up here I'm converting to being a Ravens fan. I always liked the Ravens because I could finaly root for a MD team. My dad started to convert me to being a full fledged Ravens fan during the last game of the 03 season (That was my first football game I attended).

I was born and raised in Baltimore and have lived in the area all my life except for a 2 year mistake where I lived in Redskin country because of work. :(
As a kid I was a Colts fan, and still consider anything that franchise did until 1983 OUR history. It's the players, the city and the fans that witnessed it all that matter. What the NFL and a bunch of lawyers say is meaningless to me. I still hate seeing that horseshoe, but most likely at age 38 am in the last generation of Baltimoreans that feel that way.
When the Colts moved, I never really adopted another team and for that I'm glad. I did become a Stallions season ticket holder for both seasons and enjoyed those games a lot. Once the Ravens landed, I got a single PSL and sat with some friends. I have since moved seats in order to have 2 of my own so I could bring my wife along. We are in Section 513 row 5 sts 3 & 4.
Hey Deep Purple. Driving to Florida this summer we stayed overnight in Savannah. What a beautiful city. The wife and I plan on going back for a weekend trip. Loved the riverwalk area.Quote:

Ravens season ticket holder and PSL holder since 2003 in section 105. Had to sell my season tickets for this year since my father didn't have anyone else to go to the games with and he also gets free tickets from work quite often anyway.
My football following history began in 1989 while living in Fremont, CA, I was a huge 49ers fan, watching Montana, Taylor, Rice, Craig, Rathman Lott, etc. I still consider myself a 49ers fan, however I really like how passionate the fans in Baltimore are and I love the AFC North, the old school nature of the teams and the great rivalries. I also like smashmouth football. To me, the Ravens are renegades in the NFL. They don't even look mainstream, so I like the fact they are a cult team followed primarily within the Baltimore area. I think the fans in Baltimore get after it much harder than the wimps in DC.

Well...having seen admin dudes new sticky, I guess it's time to introduce myself. It also gives me a chance to thank MistaT for inviting me here.
So here it goes...
I'm a 25 year old Danish citizen living in Sweden, where I was born and raised. I could list all my schools, but I guess they wouldn't mean a whole lot to you, so let's just say I moved around a bit in southern Sweden as my father went from one hospital to another as his career progressed.
After high school I moved to Denmark for two years, which mostly made me realise that Sweden is probably closer to home than Denmark. So now I live in Malmö (check the Frappr map if you don't know where that is) and will be halfway through Med School by this fall.
I got into the NFL by way trying out Madden 2000, without getting anywhere. Would probably have lost interest if it wasn't for one of the Danish networks starting to air a 4 pm game and SNF. Was a great introduction to the sport since commentary was adapted to an audience with very limited understanding of the game.
Was a fan of football rather than a team until the offseason 2002. By then I was getting so deep into it that following the whole NFL just became too time consuming. Picked the Ravens as my team in part because it was based in the north east, in part because I've always had an affection for underdogs and with the salary cap purge this criteria was met and also meant that most of the players were as new to the team as I was, making it easy to get into.
I'm a member of the UKRavens, though not very active. This in part because I'm not very British. But mostly since English is my third language and it takes a little more effort, giving me ample time to think through my posts, making it hard for posts to escape the grasp of self censorship.
English may be your 3rd language but you write with it better than many Americans. Actually, better than most.
I agree! Heck, english is my only language and I still haven't figured it out yet!Quote:
