Ed Reed and Jacoby Jones returned to
New Orleans, the site of their gridiron triumph
a little over a week ago, to celebrate Mardi Gras. Yesterday morning, as Mama
Wordbones and I watched the Zulu parade, we were pleasantly surprised to see
our hometown Super Bowl champs and those familiar purple jerseys.
Overall it appears that
Baltimore fans and their team made a good
impression here in the Big Easy. Waiters in restaurants and natives alike went
out of their way to compliment Baltimore.
I suppose it didn’t hurt that Ravens purple is a popular color here too, it being the primary
color of Mardi Gras and LSU.
It was nice to see Ed Reed sporting an Orioles baseball cap too. Maybe some of that Raven mojo will pass on the other birds of
Baltimore this spring.
