    "Sunday's game was BY FAR the best Sun-Life Stadium takeover ......."



    But Sunday's game was BY FAR the best Sun-Life Stadium takeover I've personally witnessed in my seven seasons covering the Dolphins. ` Omar Kelly, Sun-Sentinel

    Well done, Ravens fans!!

    I gotta admit :wiping the remnants of a raw omelet off his face: that I scoffed at all the posters who talked about having "the 12th man" for a road game.

    But when they were lining up for the opening kick & I heard the 7-Nation-Army chant I said to myself, Damn...

    Well played, road warriors, well played!

    I heard the chant and thought, jeeze, I guess fans at every stadium have adopted that chant now. Then I saw them pan the crowd and realized how much purple was there.

    I was surprised how many empty seats and how many Ravens fans I saw. As I listened to Miami media members talking in the week before the game all I heard was how excited the fan base had become and how strongly they now were behind the team. Silly me, I believed it. Until I saw otherwise.

    I guess because the NFL is season-ticket driven, it will take a year for the excitement in Miami to translate into butts in seats.

    Too bad the short Sun Sentinel story had a couple of obvious errors in it...

    John Harbaugh thanked the fans for being loud during the Dolphins' 26-23 fourth-quarter victory...yelled the Orioles' infamous "O" during the pledge of allegiance.

    The Ravens fans didn't need to purchase season-tickets to get into the game.

    What's the Dolphins fans' excuse?

    It was great to be a part of that. I am not sure how it sounded on TV but on Defense, I heard some Ravens' Fans effort to help.

    Hot as Hell but great to be there.

    I assume you wore your normal attire? If so, I bet you were soaked.

    Actually i had it there but after going out to the Bmore Purple Party in it the night before I figured it was better to just wear the beret and dress for the weather instead.

    On second thought, I could have afforded to sweat off some pounds ...

    Actually a good road trip. Cheap tickets and quick flight. Good for Ravens who can't get to see them at M&T. Ravens actually travel well and starting to get known for that. Raven presence is in most road Stadiums.

    So i am heading up to Pitt in 2 weeks to watch the Ravens (with 5 other Ravens fans) as we do each year, and there are only a few other Ravens fans we see each year. I know its not South Beach but its a cheap and fun weekend. Not sure why more Ravens fans don't make the 4 hour drive up the turnpike to see the Ravens play thier arch rival (and Pitt is actually a fun city to visit and their fans for the most part are not like the ones you see in Baltimore...of course if you are looking for a fight you can find one!).

    I was there yesterday and it was a great experience. The lower level from end zone to end zone on the Ravens side was probably 80% Baltimore fans. Incredible showing! The pre-game tailgate was very impressive as well. The only bad part of the whole day is the fact that I look like a lobster now but it was well worth it.

    Pounds aren't worth the risk of heat exhaustion! Glad you dressed "light".

    Stadium will probably be 1/3 empty and 1/3 Raven fans. We went to Pitt when they sucked and their fans are SO fair weather.

    I did my part going to most of the games down there. Don't travel anymore but we had a blast. I was there when Billick was the only coach to lose to CAM. The ball was on the 1/2" line but Billick didn't go for the win on the road. He went for the tie and lost it in OT. He was fired in the off season.

    As someone wrote, maybe Billick was confused with all the purple in the
    stands and thought it was a home game. There's even more Ravens fans in Jacksonville.


    I was sitting next to Barnes girl friend at that game. She kept talking about Barnes
    and I asked why didn't he go to one of the big 3 Florida schools and she said they
    didn't have the courses he wanted. ILMAO because he couldn't get in Miami
    where he grew up and was a high school a star. I took a pic of the
    Ravens bench and Barnes is looking straight up at me with his chick and
    he wasn't smiling. We were the only fans in the row-lol. She was with two friends.
