Just passing along from Scout.

I'm sad to pass on the news about Texan Raven, who passed away this morning. His real name was, David Miliman. He was pretty much the main force behind setting up the Ravens Nation beach-head here in Austin, informally known as Nest 512.

Like many of our crew, he made the trip to New Orleans two weeks ago. Like me, he was part of the generation that grew up with Colts, and had to live through the 12 year drought.

The cruel irony is that we had scheduled a final post-Superbowl party at the Upper Decks sports bar, today at 12:30 today, to hold us over until next Sept. Dave was a no-show, and we didn't know why. He passed away getting ready for the party.

I would appreciate someone cross-posting this over at Russel Street Report/Ravens 24x7. I know he posted there too. (I have an account, but everything I post seems to go into the Black Hole or something).
