Correct me if I am wrong but I think we are the only franchise who has been to the Super Bowl multiple times who has never lost. I now the 49ers were 6-0 until the lost to us but I don't believe another team who has been there more than once and is undefeated. Just another tidbit of Baltimore supremacy. Had to work but the family went and got good seats in the stadium and they said it rocked. Something the little girl will remember for the rest of her life. Definitely something special with this team. Hope Kruger want to come back as much as he says because we don't want to lose him or anyone else for that matter.

This is awesome! I made it to New Orleans for the Super Bowl, but I live in LA and couldn't take any more days off from work to come to the parade. I'm so happy to see the city come out and show some love for this team. Way to go Baltimore! You all make me so proud to be from the greatest city.

I went there today with my cousin and his girlfriend. That was epic. So much fun. The field was covered with Ravens fans. What's our name?! Ravens!!!! What's our name?! Ravens!!!!!! What's our name?! Ravens!!!! I loved it. I also loved when Qadry said "And that trip to New England. Ha!!!" I've never felt so much pride. We were on the middle deck. I have a few pix of it. We went crazy for Flacco and even crazier for Ray. Loved when he and JJ did the Squirrel in tandem. It was cold, but I could care less. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I couldn't miss it. And Ed needs to stick to his day job lol

I was downtown in 2000 when the Raves parade wound in the other direction toward City Hall!

The classiest thing in my vicinity was all the Ravens in vintage cars but when Tony Siragusa and Qadry Ismail spotted two kids in wheelchairs they jumped out of their cars and came over to shake both kids' hands!

They preceded down the street slapping "fives" with the rest of us!

When I saw, on TV today, Ed Reed letting fans touch the Lombardi Trophy, that rivaled, if not surpassed that moment in the first parade! Way to go, Ravens!

That crowd at M&T Bank was amazing,... 80,000 easy!

That was the best football experience of my life. I sat in the middle deck for the Jags pre-season game and loved it, but I was like a little kid again today. I was in the middle deck with my cousin and his gf and it was so awesome. We had to wait in traffic forever and stood in the freezing cold but it was all so worth it because we are Super Bowl Champions. I don't even know what to say now. I'm just so happy.

This was unreal!!! Ravens Nation really showed up today. It hard to believe that it wasn't long ago we didn't have this team, and lost out to the other two expansion teams. Now two championships!!! thank you Ravens and Maryland for showing the league who we are, and what we represent! Impressive and heart warming.

this was amazing! most amazing thing ever. im at a loss for words. there is nothing like this. we are the best ever! all of us! fans, ravens. we shut it down today. started laughing hard when the stadium said if your looking for room go to the upperdeck as i looked and see nothing available. gates get blocked off by fire marshal.on my tippy toes feeling like rice ready to just cut through all these dudes just to get a view. amazing! on the way there! 95 is shut down. exit early and find a spot and walk 2 miles with 100's and 100's of ravens fans popping up every wich way. so amazing! go ravens nation! represent! who can faces us with this fortress around us. not the broncos. certainly not the patriots. 49'ers who? slick one. killing are momentum. real smooth.

I watched the parade on TV at work from beginning to end today, it was awesome. Too bad travel downtown was quite the opposite of awesome.

The Celebration is tremendous. A true picture of what it means to win the Super Bowl in 2013. The entire city of Baltimore has blossomed in February.

I bet that we could make next years parade even bigger!
[/quote]
That's the way to think!!! It was a crazy amount of people in the stadium, but it didn't feel like a mob scene. Everybody was cool and happy. I'm sooo glad I went straight to the stadium this morning... it was a great experience to see them come in and watch Ray one last time - bringing that hunk of silver back to us!!! And I do agree whole-heartily with one of the other posts - Jacoby (along with Reed if he is still with us-please please please still be with us) should carry on the squirrel dance... partly in tribute, but more so because that dance has taken on an identity of it's own. I'm sure some people here would argue this point, but I'm just sayin'.. Jacoby rocks it, too! I couldn't help but chuckle as I watched Bisciotti look around at the biggest crowd ever - he probably could have charged us all to get in. It was the most amazing day ever to be a Ravens Fan... and I can't wait for next year's parade!!!

For me the superior way this team played in the super bowl is still sinking in. The vaunted 49's defense was no match for The Ravens. It was blow out right up until that power thing. 28-6 while the game was still natural. Surreal circumstances interrupted what would have surely been a blow out. I know John Harbaugh said it didn't affect the outcome but that's just politics. We all know this team would have completely rolled over the 9ers and set a massive superbowl record. No doubt. Great parade and celebration.

The media instead of tracking this historic run filled with thrilling games decided to make Ray Lewis past, deer antler spray, and his emotions the story.

Bested Luck in final home game
Was Victorious in double overtime thriller with one of the greatest plays in NFL history
Knock King Brady off the throne in his own house while shutting the highest scoring offense out in the 2nd half
Won the title with a Goal line Stance by a defense that was banged up and supposedly didn't stance a chance
What a run. Congrats Ravens Nation!

I'm really hoping for an Ed Reed/Eddie Money "Kid n' Play" style reunion tour.

I'd volunteer as a roadie just for the laughs.

Just wanted to put some bull to rest for those 49ers fans. On that last play they are crying about they should have had a flag thrown against us. Actually, they should have been penalized for having too many men on the field. Look in the back ground and you see a 49ers player clearly on field(number 22) That is 12 men on the field that they got away with.

I know one thing ... we cannot cut Anquan for the purpose of clearing cap space. That guy was as phenomenal as any receiver I've seen in the post-season.

I don't know if he has a nickname, but it should be Anquan "the vice" Boldin. When that ball gets in his hands, it is like a vice grip. I defy the DB who thinks he can tear that ball away.

[/quote]I think your right about the undefeated part, but just a quick correction the 9ers were 5-0 in SB before the game. One other little side note, I believe the Ravens are the only team to have a Kick Off return for a TD in every one of their Super Bowls.

Took my son to the stadium yesterday, i'm not sure if he truly understands at his age but it is something that I will remember for the rest of my life, not just the experience but to experience it with him, i've got plenty of pictures and video to show him in a couple years. To be there to see Ray Lewis carry in the Lombardi was truly amazing. Thanks for the memories RAVENS!!!!

My husband and I were in the stadium. After traffic nightmares, and our reserved parking space getting sold to someone else because of a "glitch in the system" and having to find other parking, we decided to go straight to the stadium. We finally made it into the stadium about 10-15 minutes before they shut the gates! We were in the upper level seats, but it was an amazing experience no matter where you were! Watching Ray dance one last time, and hearing all the speeches. I still have goosebumps and a big old smile on my face!

I am so thankful that we got to be a part of such an amazing day with such a deserving team! Love Love LOVE the Baltimore Ravens! Always #1 in my book! Now the world knows...WE ARE THE RAVENS!!!!
