This is actually from last year’s NFL playoffs, apparently. Conveniently, I suppose it still applies to Saturday’s Steelers-Ravens game, and — if the Steelers are lucky — Pittsburgh’s Super Bowl XLV hopes as well. Pretty clever.
Incidentally, it also happens to be the best cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” I’ve ever heard — but then my experience there is probably limited to only every single guitar shop I’ve ever stepped foot in, so…
Thanks to the Admiral for the tip. The ship has been raised!
If you happened to be at Bank of America Stadium to catch the Ravens’ 37-13 drubbing of the Panthers on Sunday, well, you probably didn’t miss much in the way of remarkable pro football.
Sure, the W is certainly nice for Baltimore fans. And seeing Brian St. Pierre — the NFL’s first stay-at-home-dad to throw back-to-back pick 6’s in a game — launch that 88-yard bomb to Gettis must have given the Carolina faithful some brief semblance of hope. But, ultimately, this was just another run-of-the-mill win by a 7-3 playoff contender over a 1-9 cellar dweller.
All that said, however, if you happened to stumble into the Whiskey River bar after the game, your football Sunday would have been fortuitously redeemed by the remarkable scene that follows: Ravens fans doing their best Ray Lewis impressions on the dance floor.
