Game 1: 'Train' makes first stop
It's over now, and the Ravens' coming-out party was a huge success. Players hugged in the locker room. Coach Ted Marchibroda got a little teary-eyed. Quarterback Vinny Testaverde was a big hit, and another new slogan and dance were born. On a day when Baltimore brought back some of its football gods to remember its storied NFL past, the Ravens kicked off their inaugural season yesterday with a 19-14 win over the Oakland Raiders.
