Before the kickoff of their highly anticipated home opener Sunday night, the Ravens paid tribute to late actor Michael K. Williams by playing a song that his character Omar Little from “The Wire” used to whistle.
Williams died Sept. 6 and his death is being investigated as a suspected drug overdose. He was 54.
In a video posted to Twitter, the Ravens played “A-Hunting We Will Go,” which Williams would whistle with a cigarette in his mouth to ominously announce his arrival.
While the actor was from Brooklyn, New York, Baltimore was a “second home” to him, according to friends.
The Ravens rallied to beat the Kansas City Chiefs, 36-35, in their first full-capacity home game since Jan. 11, 2020, after the coronavirus forced stadiums to limit attendance.
