As John Harbaugh frequently said last season, the Ravens are the 2013 Super Bowl champions. Nobody can change that or take that away.
But it sure was nice being the most recent champion.
That run will come to an end Sunday night, so I thought of some ways to celebrate one last time. And since we’re reminiscing, you should also enter our photo contest.
Here's what I got (Mobile users, click "View In Browser" above to fully enjoy):
8 a.m.: Wake up to "We Are The Champions" alarm clock tone.
8:30 a.m.: Shower with Old Spice Swagger. Ray Lewis would approve.
9 a.m.: Toss on your favorite Ravens jersey. *Must be of somebody who was on last year's team. Slip on your replica Super Bowl ring, or the real thing for those of you that have one.
9:30 a.m.: Breakfast of champions. Wheaties it is.
10 a.m.: Read the newspaper. This one.
11 a.m.: Start re-watching Super Bowl XLVII on NFL Game Rewind.
1 p.m.: Finish re-watching Super Bowl XLVII. Have the antacids beside you; it's still got a scary ending.
2:30 p.m.: Bundle up, hitch a ride to M&T Bank Stadium. Parade of champions. Don't do this.
3:30 p.m.: Swing by the White House. See if Obama is wearing his Leach jersey.
4:30 p.m.: Start planning a trip to the homeland, New Orleans, while singing "Two Tickets To Paradise."
6 p.m.: Watch Super Bowl XLVIII, a tinge thankful that you're not in a polar vortex.
10 p.m.: Shed a tear as the Lombardi Trophy is hoisted by somebody else.
10:01 p.m.: Get hungry to reclaim it in 2015. Mmmm, leftovers.
