I Am A Terrible Person

I saw this picture (from Jonathan Newton of The Washington Post) of a Ravens fan and his son after Baltimore lost to the Indianapolis Colts, and smiled. I don't know exactly why, although it probably has something to do with me being a Steelers fan, but I really dislike the Baltimore Ravens. Even this week leading up to yesterday's game, Baltimore made such a big deal about the Colts leaving Baltimore in the middle of the night 20-some years ago. Conversely, I never hear the Ravens fans feel remorse for (with the help of Art Modell) stealing the Browns from Cleveland.

Baltimore's loss yesterday capped off a terrific sports day. The Penguins won at Philadelphia against the Flyers and Pitt defeated Georgetown both on national television. Plus George Mason won their third straight game by crushing James Madison. What a great day!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking sadistic joy from this photo.

Two Playoff tickets … $300
XL & S Todd Heap Jerseys … $500
Your son’s lifelong disgust over you crying and refusing to leave the stadium … Priceless

Steve - Thanks for a fantastic comment. I'm glad I'm not alone in my feelings about the Ravens.

I hated them when they were the Brownies and I hate them even more for stealing the team and taking them to Baltimore! ;)
