Where once lurked Bob Irsay, now there resides perhaps arguably the best owner/front office/coaching staff combination in maybe all of professional sports.
As I have heard tell, when one door closes, another one opens.
Thank you Mr. Irsay, may you rest in peace, for stealing our Colts in the middle of a snowy March evening.
If you had never done so, then we wouldn't have our Ravens, now would we?

Here is to the greatest fans in the NFL and the best owner and front office and players! Art Modell has a special place in my heat also. I will never forget the BALTIMORE Colts but I bleed purple and will for life.
Our fans were the NFLs best kept secret, not after that parade lol

I got on the bandwagon once the Ravens got here, and that attachment has grown and gotten stronger over time. I think it's fair to say that the team who used to be called the Baltimore Browns no longer have any true ties to the Browns any longer. Art Modell (bless his soul) learned from his mistakes when he brought the team over from Cleveland. The Browns fans are still mad (rightly so) because they felt he promised them to never move the team, and if it were to be sold to sell it to a native.
Well Art's hand was forced, but I think he had some regret about the way the move was handled. Ensuring the mistake wasn't repeated he sold the team to a Baltimore native, and Bisciotti has given us a team that is now all our own.
We will always be grateful to the Modells, and I think Browns fans need to forgive a man who had the best of intentions for football. He left the team name, colors, and records in Cleveland and we don't have that luxury in Baltimore. Yet even our misfortune with the Colts has given rise to the Ravens like a phoenix rising from the ashes. So all's well that ends well!
