Ogden, Woodson miss city parade


Offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden and safety Rod Woodson both missed the Ravens' parade on Tuesday to take care of personal business before heading to Hawaii for Sunday's Pro Bowl.

Ogden had to stop at his home in Las Vegas on Monday before leaving for the Pro Bowl. Woodson had a family commitment in Pittsburgh that caused him to miss the parade.

Tight end Shannon Sharpe participated in the street parade, but missed the rally and team introductions at War Memorial Plaza for personal reasons.

Quarterback Trent Dilfer had a hectic post-Super Bowl schedule, but managed to get back to Baltimore for the parade.

Dilfer taped a segment of the "Today Show" at 6:15 a.m. Monday, then did a live spot on CBS' "Good Morning" at 7:10 with coach Brian Billick. From there, he and his family were taken by limousine to Disney World for a full day at the theme park.

The Disney Co. had Dilfer flown back to Baltimore in a private plane Tuesday morning, and he arrived shortly before the parade began.

Defensive end Michael McCrary had surgery to repair a fracture in his right hand immediately upon returning from Tampa on Monday, and he appeared in the parade with his arm in a cast and sling.

Injured in the second half of Super Bowl XXXV, McCrary returned to finish the game.

Goose sighting

Defensive tackle Tony Siragusa, who became a national celebrity in Tampa, will make a guest appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman" tonight.

Wide receiver Brandon Stokley, who caught a touchdown pass in the Super Bowl, will appear on the "Late, Late Show with Craig Kilborn."

End zone

As part of paying off a Super Bowl bet between mayors, New York's Rudolph Giuliani will hoist the Ravens flag atop City Hall and bathe the building in purple light. This was scheduled for tonight, but will be delayed until tomorrow, so Mayor Martin O'Malley can see for himself. In Honolulu, Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Ray Lewis went through his first Pro Bowl practice yesterday after exchanging congratulatory hugs with several AFC teammates. The Ravens linebacker arrived a day late, choosing instead to join his teammates for Baltimore's parade Tuesday. The official video of the Ravens' season will be released by NFL Films and USA Home Entertainment on Feb. 13. It will include behind-the-scenes footage and exclusive interviews. Priced at $19.95, it will be available in stores or by phone at 1-877-NFL-FILM.
