Far be it from us to ever give the Baltimore Ravens credit for anything but PG layout ace Steve Ziants caught this little nugget on the AP Wire and we liked it and thought we'd pass it along:
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens are urging fans attending Saturday night's NFL preseason game not to leave early.
Baltimore area swimmer Michael Phelps
is scheduled to swim his final race at the Beijing Olympics after the game ends,
and the Ravens have been granted permission by NBC to show the race live on the
stadium SmartVision boards.
Phelps potentially could be swimming for his eighth gold medal of the Beijing Games, which would break the record of seven golds in a single Olympics, set in 1972 by Mark Spitz.
Phelps is a Baltimore boy so that's a class move by the Ravens to do that. Besides, those folks need something to cheer for in the wake of that dreadful football team they have. There isn't enough Natty Boh in the world to make the Ravens watchable. Blog 'N' Gold is predicting a 3-13 season for the Ravens, who would be better served if they signed cast members from The Wire to 'take care of' opponents for them.
