OK, we're done with the NFL draft and we are milking the one-year anniversary of the bar for one more day.

If you missed last week -- and I want a written excuse if you did -- we decided to put murals of quintessential Baltimore sports moments on the walls to celebrate this dive not being closed by the health department, the legal authorities or disgusted grammarians.

We're doing it by decade, starting with 1950, and we are one short.

Here's the roll call: 1950s, Alan Ameche's plunge; 1960s, Brooks leaping to the mound at the end of the 1966 World Series clincher; 1970s, the four 20-game winners; 1980s, Eddie Murray rounding the bases in the 1983 World Series clincher; 1990s, Cal Ripken taking his victory lap.

That leaves this decade. And we are a little short on football on the walls. Besides, I have covered the Orioles for nearly the entire decade and, trust me, there hasn't been much to remember.

Obviously, an image from the Ravens lone Super Bowl championship -- which occurred in January 2001, incidentally, so I don't have to battle with decade-definition police -- has got to be it, right?

Jermaine Lewis' touchdown scamper down the sidelines could work. Or Duane Starks' INT and TD.

But my call is not an action one. Ray Lewis holding the Lombardi trophy over his head while confetti flutters about.

But this is your bar, your wall too.
