Ravens to open the Season on the road


Recommended Posts

It gets worse.

I just realized this means one less home game this year unless they swap games with the stealers, browns or bengals. Otherwise there will only be 7 home games.

As I've said before, I hold no ill will towards the Orioles.

I hope the relationship between the two teams keeps growing off the momentum of last year. This was a nice comment...



As the Orioles and Ravens try to work out a scheduling conflict that has put in jeopardy the NFL’s hopes of opening up the regular season on Thursday, Sept. 5 at M&T Bank Stadium, the relationship between the two downtown neighbors has again come under scrutiny. That’s a shame because over the past year or so, the synergy between the Orioles and Ravens never appeared better. Ravens players wore cartoon bird hats and frequently brought up the Orioles during their playoff run. When the Orioles played the New York Yankees at home in Game 2 of their playoff series, half the Ravens’ roster was at Camden Yards.

Orioles players did the same during the Ravens’ season and got rousing ovations when they were shown on the M&T Bank JumboTron. Orioles center fielder Adam Jones went to every game during the Ravens’ Super Bowl run. Orioles manager Buck Showalter was an honorary captain for a Ravens game and then paid a visit to John Harbaugh at the team facility later in the season. When I asked Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti on Monday about the relationship between the two teams, he agreed with the opinion that the two teams have “never gotten along better.” His reasoning: “That has everything to do with the Orioles winning because when the Orioles are winning, the fans stop saying bad things about the Orioles because they are getting their cake and eating it, too,” Bisciotti said. “When the Orioles were struggling, we were going to get the majority of the positive press. It’s got to be very difficult for the Orioles to put up with that for an extended period of time. But as Baltimore sports fans, we love the Orioles being good and we hope they continue to be good. I think if you have two teams that have the same fans and both teams are winning, Baltimore is in a great spot. That’s what we’re all shooting for.”
