Your favorite all-time Ravens moment? Of course, Super Bowl XLVII is No. 1. It was a life goal of mine to attend a Super Bowl. I'll never forget it. There's also the time Torrey Smith caught the game-winning touchdown at Pittsburgh in 2011, and when Bart Scott leveled Ben Roethlisberger in Baltimore in 2008.
The biggest way you've displayed your Ravens fandom? I've been writing about the team on different blogs for 3 1/2 years now, every week. Also, in 2011, I bought tickets to six of their eight home games.
Your favorite place to see a Ravens game (besides M&T Bank Stadium)? New Orleans. Besides the Superdome, that city was built to celebrate. It was an unforgettable time.
What does it mean to you to be a Ravens fan? It means being loyal, educated and passionate.
If you could invite three Ravens to dinner, who would they be? Joe Flacco, Justin Tucker and Arthur Jones.How did you celebrate the Super Bowl win? I took as many pictures as I could and kept asking myself, "Did that really just happen?"
Your prediction for Sunday's game? Ravens 23, Bengals 21. Although the Bengals started the season better than the Ravens did, it's the Ravens that have the unquestioned advantage in big-game experience.
If you could be one Raven for a day, who would it be? Joe Flacco. He doesn't get hit in practice and he makes the most money.
Fill in the blank. I am a Ravens fan because_______ They care about the fans and the city of Baltimore. They play with pride.
