The whole day was filled with the sounds of the Seven Nation Army chant mixed with the cheering for the new world champions of the NFL. You could hear Ed Reed singing two tickets to paradise and John Harbaugh asking “what’s our name” to which a crowd of 100,000 plus people yelled in reply “Ravens.” All you could see, were smiles on the faces of the Superbowl champions and a sea of purple around them. It was a day where Baltimore came together to celebrate a long-awaited victory. It was a day of love, joy, pride, and comradery. This day showed the mutual love and loyalty that the Ravens football team and the city of Baltimore have for each other. It was certainly a celebration like none other and I am so glad I got to see it in person. Sitting next to my mom and completely surrounded by my fellow Ravens fans, I was able to enjoy and soak in the pure feelings of joy and pride for my team and my city. Throughout the past ten plus years of living in the DMV, I never thought I would ever experience such an incredible moment, but I did. It was truly a beautiful experience and it is something I will never forget. I’ve always claimed Baltimore in the DMV and I’ve never been more proud to claim it than now. To see so many people celebrating the same thing in one place with no incidents or problems is amazing and I’m glad I got to be a part of it. It was awesome to just be surrounded by Ravens in Ravens Nation!
