Baltimore Ravens take to the field in Annapolis

| August 06, 2014, 09:46 AM | 0 Comments

At the end of most football games played at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, you hear a rendition of Blue and Gold–the USNA alma mater.  But on Monday, the stadium was neither filled with blue or gold–it was pure purple!

The Baltimore Ravens held a free pre-season practice session for more than a thousand local residents decked out in their purple finery. The Ravens brought a family fun zone, Rise and Conquer (mascots), Poe, cheerleaders, and of course the 2014 squad.

Both before and after the practice, the players interacted with the crowd, signing autographs, posing for photos and as Torrey Smith did–posing for selfies!

This is the third year that the Baltimore Ravens have held practice here in Annapolis and owner Steve Bisciotti, a local resident, has said that the team belongs here and has informally committed to doing it every year!

And judging from the reaction of the crowd, we welcome them with open arms!
