    That was a little too close for me. And it's all because I went out
    and got some chipped ham at the last minute - that gave us the 7
    points we needed.

    Andy - your team already lost. Pittsburgh is not accepting any
    two-faced fans from Philadelphia. Better luck next year.

    That was a nail-biter! Good game! Silly mistakes by the Ravens. They
    don't usually play like that.

    Is this a new team/new league? I am not familiar with that team name.

    The Baltimore Ravens used to be the Cleveland Browns. The Browns were
    bought by Baltimore to fill the loss of the Baltimore Colts when they
    were bought by Indianapolis. Baltimore was without a football team
    since 1983. The old Browns team was bought in '95 and began playing in
    the '96 season. The Browns name wasn't bought in the transaction, and
    the name "Ravens" came from the Poe poem because he lived in the
    Baltimore area for times, and is buried there.

    My Eric was a big Ravens fan. I'm sure he was watching today's game.

    Are you serious? They've been around over 20 years and I'm just
    hearing about them? LOL! I actually thought the Browns were still in
    business.

    No, only 15 years. And, there is a new Browns team now. Not sure when
    they were formed because I don't follow them.

    It's funny how franchises move around. On the day Eric was born, the
    Redskins were playing the Cardinals, or I could swear they were. too
    long ago. I can remember football being on in the labor room on TV, and
    my ex was a Cardinal fan. They were the St. Louis Cardinals at that
    time. 10/7/1979. Just now looking it up online, I can't find where the
    skins played the cards that day. weird. Funny how your memory plays
    tricks on you. Also strange how on such a memorial day, what you think
    you remembered might not be so.

    You're welcome. Having been living in Cleveland when all this was
    happening made it an easy answer. :-)

    Actually, Browns owner Art Modell wanted a new stadium with luxury
    boxes so he could make more money, and he wanted the city of Cleveland
    to pay for it. The city of Cleveland would not build him a stadium as
    they had recently (early 90's) financed a new Baseball stadium for the
    Cleveland Indians. He decided to move the Browns to Baltimore for the
    1996 season. The league decided that because of the rich historical
    heritage of the Browns franchise, that Modell would have to rename the
    team when they went to Baltimore and be treated for all extents and
    purposes as an expansion team with no previous history, and a new
    Cleveland Browns expansion team would be put in Cleveland for the 1999
    season that would retain the Browns history. Modell renamed the team
    the Baltimore Ravens, and the Browns players and staff moved with the
    team, but the team's history and color scheme stayed in Cleveland.
    There was no Cleveland Browns team from 1996-98; they only existed on
    paper as a historical trust. When the 1999 season started, the Browns
    came back to the NFL with the classic brown, orange and white colors.
