Hello, I'm Holly, and I intern down in Annapolis for Delegate Nathaniel Oaks, District 41. We are trying to pass a bill that would make BOTH the oriole and the raven our state birds.

Of course this is because of our football team. Besides that, a raven is surprisingly a very intelligent bird, with one of the largest brains out of all the birds... but I'll skip the rest of my testimony.


All you have to do, is call your district's delegate, whether you live in Baltimore... or even the Eastern Shore and tell them that you want the raven to be state bird too!

To find your area's elected officials, click here. Just follow the directions. Type in your address or click on the map with the "info" button, and your represenatives will show up. Remember to call your delegate (not senator or councilman).

Call anytime, chances are the delegate won't be at their desk when you call. Leave a message! Whether it's a voicemail or you speak to their aide, please just make your message clear.

Here is a sample of what you could say:

Hello I am John Doe and I am calling from Rockville, MD. Please give Delegate ______ the message that both the raven and the oriole should be Maryland's state birds, and to please vote for the bill that will pass it. Thank you.

The more times you call and leave annoying messages, the more likely it will get passed. Call everyday if you can!

Please, and thank you soooooo much!!!

If you have any questions, let me know. You can even call Delegate Oak's office at 4108413283 and speak to me. I'm at my desk Tuesdays and Thursdays 9 to 5, but if you leave a message anytime, I will get it and get back to you. Just ask for Holly concerning the ravens bill.

Need a New Offense
After watching the game on Saturday the main thing that needs to be done in the off season besides resiging Adalus Thomas is implmenting a new offense that is as agressive as the defense.  No more of this dink & dunk ball control play not to lose offense.  We need a more explosive back who can be a threat both running and catching the ball A.K.A. a Marshal Fulk type.  Keep Jamal Lewis as our short yardage back like the Steelers used Jerome Bettis a few years ago.  Turn the recievers lose be agressive.  As for the offensive line it is time to get MOBILE, HOSTILE, AGILE more pulling of the gards, screens, sweeps.  Help get the backs out in space and more one on one match ups.  Also if another reciever on third down and 5 runs a 3 yard route after the game he run the uperdeck till the next sunrise.  At the least on a third down and 5 run an 8-10 yard route that a way you have a cpl of yards to play with and still make the first down.  If I was the owner and GM these are the changes I would be looking to make.  Other than that it was a good bounce back year and for once the team exceeded most peoples expatations, now we need to make a few adjustmensts so the next time we hold Payton Manning to 5 feild goals we WIN!!!!!

bart scott had the #1 hit on "jacked up" tonight. this has to be the 3rd of 4th time a raven has been featured. I officially nominate the ravens as the hardest hitting defense in all of football

total domination
the ravens dominated every phase of the game on their way to the most lopsided victory in the history of their rivalry with the steelers.

here are the details of the 27-0 victory

Big Win Against Some Sore Losers...
The Ravens jumped out to a 17-0 lead and never looked back today. This win gives the Ravens a 2 game lead in the division.

here's a quote from T.J. Houshmandzadeh that I'm sure you'll all get a kick out of... "We're just a better team than they are. We didn't win the game and I'm sure they'll get a laugh over that," he said. "But deep down, we know we're better than Baltimore and they know it. We've got better players than they do."

time to attempt being more active...
It was great to see them finally open the offense up a lil. Great balance of hard nosed running and actually throwing the ball more than 4-7 yards down field. It was also awesome to see them actually be unpredictable and vary personal packages and formations.

I have to agree with Ray on this one... the game ball definitely goes to "offensive coordinator" Brian Billick

Ummmm... Anyone here?
Hey, I just wanted to know why this community isn't active... pretty much at all.

Right now I'm in Korea (not by choice btw,) so that makes following the Ravens kind of difficult... Could at least one of you post here a little more often? If you want a good idea of what I'm looking for, look at washingtoncaps, they do a really good job of keeping me updated.

Thank you guys.

x-posted obnoxiously
I'm working on a project.

What are some of the more obscure sports nicknames out there?

We all know about Crazy Legs and Sweetness and what not.

What are some of the lesser known ones (e.g. Frank "Bag of Donuts" Winters)?

Nicknames from any sport are welcome.
