Inside the Ravens Victory Locker Room (Article)

11 posts in this topic

ESPN's David Fleming wrote a fantastic article about the Ravens' victory locker room. If ever there was a piece that demonstrated how special this team is, it's this one. ([url="http://espn.go.com/blog/playbookfandom/post?id=17798"]LINK[/url])

Excerpt:

[i]"Just for a moment, Harbaugh comes back into the hallway, where he bumps into Ravens director of college scouting Joe Hortiz. The two men embrace like brothers.[/i]

[i]How important is a great working relationship between a team’s scouts and its coaching staff? How vital is it for scouts to supply not just good or great players but talent, at a value, that perfectly suits the team’s schemes? The answer seems to lie in this moment between coach and scout.[/i]

[i]And I realize, after watching Harbaugh with his daughter and now with Hortiz, I’m seeing the real secret to success for the Ravens: Harbaugh’s ability to run a multibillion-dollar business, in the violent and hard-core sport of pro football, just like a family."[/i]

Cherish this victory, everyone. No one's got it better than us. NO ONE.

Wow! Thanks to the link to the article. What a unique, and special perspective....I felt like I was there. I like how Fleming tells the truth about people in unguarded moments showing who they really are. Excellent work! Lets treasure this moment!

Great article. Here's a really weird and interesting quote:

[quote]The ceiling [of the Ravens lockerroom] starts to leak. Not a drip, but a steady stream from a crease in the concrete just to the right of the Ravens' locker room door. Two feet away is a massive tangle of electric plugs, cords, connections and computer equipment. Someone from the team slides a large plastic garbage can under the leak. Problem solved. But seeing this, I begin to feel lucky that the blackout lasted only 34 minutes.[/quote]

Superdome must be held together by bandaids.

That was a great article. Thanks for sharing.

When I read things like that, I find that mind wanders to what it must be like for the losers during that time...
