Your favorite all-time Ravens moment? Watching them win the Super Bowl this year. We had a great regular season but, as usual, every playoff game was a nail-biter. So it was great to see them come out with a win and it was even better to see Ray Lewis end his career with another Super Bowl ring.
The biggest way you've displayed your Ravens fandom? I don't go crazy like some of the "super fans" out there, but I do embrace Purple Friday. I try to get to as many games as I can and certainly watch the ones I am not at. I also try to support as many off field Ravens events as I can.
Your favorite place to see a Ravens game (besides M&T Bank stadium)? Mad River or Mother's in Federal Hill. Both places always have huge crowds and everyone gets real into the games. It's also nice to see the bars themselves get really into the games.
What does it mean to you to be a Ravens fan? It means sticking with them through thick and thin. We have never been the best NFL team or had the prettiest wins, but we always find a way to win. It frustrates me when people turn on the team when they are having a tough season. Good fans should stick by them and understand that these things happen, but we always bounce back.
If you could invite three Ravens to dinner, who would they be? Justin Tucker, Torrey Smith, Terrell Suggs.
Your favorite Raven? It's a toss up between Torrey Smith and Justin Tucker.
How did you celebrate the Super Bowl win? I watched it at Nobles in Federal Hill, so after I took to Charles Street, as pretty much everyone else did, and celebrated with my friends. It was certainly a wild night.
If you could be a Raven for a day, who would it be? Terrell Suggs on a game day. I think it would be fun to get in the opposing quarterback's head and then come flying off the corner for a sack.
Your prediction for Sunday's game? Ravens 31, Lions 27. Megatron will do what he does and catch touchdowns, but I think the Ravens will find their rhythm on offense and Tucker will come through with a late field goal for the win.
Fill in the blank: I am a Ravens fan because _____ Baltimore is my favorite city and my home, so I could not imagine cheering for another team.
