Baltimore 2001 vs. Baltimore 2013 [Pictures]
A lot has changed in Baltimore since 2001, when the Ravens last played in the Super Bowl (sweet reminder: they beat the New York Giants, 34-7). Just how different is Baltimore, you ask? We'll leave you to decide if things were better then, or now.

In 2013, even though its name has been 1st Mariner Arena since 2003, Baltimore is still depending on the same outmoded, antiquated facility for indoor concerts and professional sports games. Civic leaders continue to call for its replacement, even though it's been good enough over the past 12 years to play host to Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen and The Rolling Stones. Not bad for a building way past its prime.
