    Re: 10 things every Ravens fan should do at least once in there lifetime.



    I think I am in the minority on the whole authentic jersey thing.

    I am VERY selective about which authentics I buy. I have the black Ray Lewis, a purple Ed Reed and my new favorite is the Unitas authentic -- B'more fans LOVE it, Colts fans HATE it!

    Guess I am a jersey snob in that respect. But I do agree it really isnt a top 10 type of thing to do if you're a fan. They are very expensive.

    10. Go to training camp
    9. Attend the draft or host a day one draft party - Check
    8. Tailgate- get there early and stay late after the game. - Check
    7. Get a tour of the Complex @ 1 Winning Drive.
    6. Go to an away game wearing colors. - Check
    5. Go to one of the players public appearances and meet them. - Check
    4. Watch an away game at your favorite bar packed with purple clad folks. - Check
    3. Buy a authentic game jersey of your favorite player. - Check
    2. Attend a home playoff game and see a win.
    1. Go to a Ravens Super Bowl game

    60% is not too bad. I didn't have tickets for the previouos playoff games so 2006 was my first time - they lost, damn. I watched the Super Bowl but from my house. I've toured the stadium and drive past 1 Winning Dr once a week but have not gotten a tour of the training facility. And I can't do the Training Camp as it falls during a month that I'm not able to take off of work due to yearly projects, another damn.
    Pffffff! I trust wikipedia more than the NFL. If anyone would know football, it is clearly wikipedia.

    Pardon my ignorance, but have the Ravens ever won a home playoff game?

    How about "Attend the Hall of Fame induction ceremony for a Baltimore Raven"?

    10. Go to training camp

    7. Get a tour of the Complex @ 1 Winning Drive.
    6. Go to an away game wearing colors. 6 times
    5. Go to one of the players public appearances and meet them. use to go the goose show
    4. Watch an away game at your favorite bar packed with purple clad folks. numerous times
    3. Buy a authentic game jersey of your favorite player. have my name and a mcnair authentic and a colts unitas
    2. Attend a home playoff game and see a win. I was there
    1. Go to a Ravens Super Bowl game. tried to go was just too much $$ but now have full approval from wife if ever happens again i can go no matter the cost

    SO im missing:

    Training camp-i guess i was never interested in practice. i went to a few scrimmages at m&T and was bored to death, just doesnt mean the same when it doesnt count to me.

    Visit one winning way---good luck....only a few get that chance.

    I've got 7 of 10, including that Super Bowl win!

    Visiting the Palace, training camp, and the authentic are what I'm missing. Like Mista T, I don't think the authentic is all that important.

    They hold a corporate event every year that can include a complex tour. That includes the Hunt and Lombardi trophies, a number of photos turned into paintings of memorable Ravens plays, the weight room, Modell's office with the stadium coffee table, etc. We could not go inside the draft room, but I got a picture taken with me by the sign.

    I got my tour when Ehrlich was running for Governor back in 2001. It was just after 9-11. Myself and some fellow envelope-stuffers had a dinner there and got to see the facilities.

    I wouldnt try the same tactic again. I hear the O'Malley folks and Bisciotti dont get along so well!

    I made the list and still haven't gotten my tour. But it should happen soon, it has just been a matter of scheduling lately.
