    Re: How loud will the "Oh" be during the National Anthem next week?



    I don't understand this "oooo" part (I've seen this referenced in a Ravens blog too). Is this in the beginning if the anthem?

    It doesn't take a lot since the stadium is usually pretty quiet. I have had some people in other cities tell me it is disrespectful but I figure it was written in Baltimore by a Baltimorean so its our song and we can sing it however we please. I hope somebody warns Alicia Keys though. That is something that could throw you off if you are not expecting it.

    Also we're allowed to do it because it was written in Baltimore. That's my rule anyway.

    I remember it from the 1970's, when the Orioles had winning seasons every season. I'm pretty sure it was around the same time as Wild Bill Hagy was spelling out O R I O L E S from section 52(?). The glory days of the O's, because it's not just O, it's O's!

    Win a free beer from a 49ers fan by betting they are going to sing a song about Baltimore's defence before the game. You can collect on that bet when they sing the National Anthem.

    I think it has been lost since the 13 years of losing, but it isn't "Oh," it is "O's!"

    That is why the beer is so much sweeter when you can make a bet with a Steelers fan that before every home game at Heinz Field the home crowd stands and sings a song about Baltimore's defense. Not the Ravens' defense, but Baltimore's defense.

    Fair enough. I'd say that too.
