Ravens vs Giants

Today's game was against the Giants, and the Ravens crushed them! It wasn't an incredibly exciting game, but hey, they can't all be. For our pregame show, we "premiered" the "new" Baltimore Fight Song (the old Colts Fight Song renamed because of the new words). I feel like we got a better response when we played "Living on a Prayer" during the game (we had to cut off early, and the crowd was singing along - really cool). Once again, I'd like to thank everyone who tried to help me out by voting for the Ravens Fight Song, but I have to get on my soapbox here. I'm really kind of angry at the Ravens. The whole reason why there was voting and a big push for the Colts Fight Song to replace the Ravens Fight Song, was because it appeared that a whole heck of a lot of people knew the words to the Colts Fight Song, and held it near and dear to their hearts. While the band was out in the parking lot practicing this morning, I could hear the Baltimore Fight Song blaring over the speakers in the stadium. The Ravens Fight Song was never promoted like that. We were told that the words to the Baltimore Fight Song were going to be put up on the JumboTron (not really what it's called) so that the crowd could learn the words and sing along. That was never done for the Ravens Fight Song. If the Ravens had put half the effort into the Ravens Fight Song that they're putting into the Baltimore Fight Song, I think that it would be just as popular. And you know what? There are plenty of die hard fans that know the words to the Ravens Fight Song. And during pregame, right before we played the Baltimore Fight Song, the announcer said, "Now turn to page 24, and sing along with ..." And they did the same thing once during the game - "Turn to page 24 and sing along with..." How unfair!
