    Re: Planned trip to Baltimore



    T---
    I see that you and Greg are no longer in the lot where you were last year. Are you back by the railroad tracks where you were a few years ago? I spoke with Ben the day of the Steelers game but I ran out of time and never made it over to say goodbye before he headed back. That's where he was that day. I was over there a few years ago when Stockers was in town for the cold snowy Redskins game.

    Yes, Toeman: back in Lot J. Exactly where we used to be until we had been scared off by the Casino threat to destroy Lot J (which now is about 99.9% over). Many of our group got tired of the post-game traffic mess co-mingling with Lot H traffic, so we opted to give up that great private lot in favor of our familiar old stomping grounds. All but Fells Point Raven.

    Lot J is much better for traffic, but I will miss the privacy and wind protection.

    We are very easy to find, now that the Stadium Authority in its infinite wisdom, has placed a huge yellow recycling bin adjacent to the grass plot which we staked for tailgating out many years ago.

    What historic things do you want to see?
    Gettysburg should be on your list.
    Ft McHenry.
    Greenmount Cemetery/John Wilkes Booth's Grave
    Edgar Allen Poe's Grave

After the NFL returned to Baltimore as the Ravens for the 1996 season, Unitas and most of the other old-time Colts regarded THE RAVENS as the TRUE SUCCESSORS of the Baltimore Colts!"

    Hey T--I hear ya on the Ostend St to Hanover St mess. They actually had police on motorcycles running back and forth from Hanover to Sharpe radioing the guys on Hanover to hold Hanover traffic and let us out. They were holding up the side streets as well. It was slightly better after the Houston game.
    I am still at Sharpe and Ostend in the credit union lot. I will stop by Lot J and say hello. Is Greg with you?
    Ravenblue needs to have a great time tailgating in November.

    Re: Planned trip to Baltimore

    Marchetti,

    Not sure how much I'll be able to fit in as I'm only going to be in Baltimore for a short while- 2 of these are game days, the other is the evening I land! Having said that, I definately intend to visit Fort McHenry, probably before I get the train to DC. I'd also like to visit the Aqarium as one of my colleages has said it is worth doing. Any ideas what the liklihood of either of these places being open on 'Black Friday' (my other free morning!)?

    Hopefully this will be the first of many trips over, so I'll look to see other sites, particularly Gettysburg another time.

    Toeman,

    Definately looking forward to some tailgating, and i'll be arriving early anyway as I'll need to pick up my ticket from 'Will Call'. As I don't land until Saturday evening, I'm not sure I'd be able to bring anything, but I'd be more than happy to chip in anything needed to contribute. Would this be ok?

    Plenty of food and beer will be there. We have a group of 20-30 people tailgating each game. Someone volunteers and brings all the food for the group and is reimbursed--usually $5 for canned beer and $10 for food. I got ya covered.
    I am not sure if the ice luge is coming to either game but there are lots of pictures of different UKRavens taking their shot of spirits off the large block of ice.

    Haha, well if it's there I'll play- who am I to go against tradition!

    Cheers man, sounds like a good set up. What time does it it start? I'll be at stadium fairly early anyway.

    Mike/Ravenblue got to see one hell of a game! Hope the same holds true on Thursday night.
    We were able to find Mister T and Greg at their new tailgate spot.

    Everything turned out great.

    Seems as if we'll need that good ole UK Ravens magic again this Thursday to push our record to 8-3!

    UNLEASH THE BEASTS!!!!

    Another dandy!!!! If we get a home playoff game, I think I fly Ravenblue back on my nickle. We need him in those seats!

    Re: Planned trip to Baltimore

    Been intending to get on this thread since I got back but keep getting distracted! I blame the jet lag and being unable to sleep til 3am most nights!

    Loved every minute of my time in Baltimore- Got to see 2 great games and had a lot of fun with some very cool people. Definately planning on heading back over next year (assuming my bank manager lets me!). Mate at work is an Eagles fan and with us scheduled to play at the Linc next year he says he might be keen to come over as well. Hopefully the schedule will work out for a decent home game as well.

    Once again, massive thanks to Toe for sorting everything out when I was over.
