RAVENS CONTINUE 2014 PLAYOFF RUN
As the Baltimore Ravens football team prepares for its Divisional Playoff game at Gillette Stadium on Sat., Jan. 10 vs. the New England Patriots, the rest of the organization will be painting the town purple -- for the second week in a row.
Monday (Jan. 5) morning, members of the Ravens' grounds crew will visit the Towson Court House at 9 a.m. and McDaniel College at 10:15 a.m. to paint the Ravens' logo on grass at each location. Front office staff, Poe and Ravens cheerleaders will join in the action to celebrate the team's playoff push by providing giveaways for fans in attendance.
On Tuesday (Jan. 6) morning, members of the marketing department will be on hand at M&T Bank Stadium in Lot D to decorate fans cars from 6–10 a.m. with the official Ravens logo. Last week over 1,000 fans stopped by to have spray chalk applied to their cars so they can show their pride. If fans don't have the chance to stop by on Tuesday, there will be other chances during the Ravens' daily "Flock Parties" at local establishments.
This week the first Flock Party will be held on Wednesday at the Smyth Jewelers in Ellicott City. Each Flock Party will feature meet-and-greets with Ravens alumni players, cheerleaders, a pep band, mascots Rise and Conquer, and Poe. Plus, fans can have their car painted, hang out with 98Rock personalities and grab free prizes, including autographed memorabilia. More Flock Parties will be held throughout the week at various locations. The full schedule of events can be found at www.BaltimoreRavens.com/FlockParty.
Then on Friday (Jan. 9) in traditional fashion, 98Rock and the Ravens will host their Purple Friday Fuel Up at Hightopps Backstage Grille in Timonium from 6-10 a.m., with the 98Rock Morning Show broadcasting live with free breakfast and appearances from Ravens alumni players, cheerleaders, Playmakers, pep band and Poe. This will be followed by a Miller Lite caravan around Timonium beginning at 6:30 p.m. Exact details and participating locations can be found at BaltimoreRavens.com.
For fans who don't have a chance to come out and join in, they can be a part of the excitement online, as the Ravens plan to give away daily prizes as part of the *Week of Winning. *Contest codes will be announced each day on various Ravens digital platforms (Twitter, mobile app, Instagram, RavensReps and BaltimoreRavens.com). Fans who find the codes online can submit them into the contest form to be entered to win Ravens prizes, including autographed memorabilia.
Also, in partnership with Giant Food, continuing this week children will be able to write and send letters to the Ravens via purple mailboxes found in 52 area store locations. Each Wednesday evening during the playoffs, the letters will be picked up from Giant Food locations and transported to the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills, where they will then be posted in the cafeteria for players and coaches to see. Children who send letters will also become eligible to win a school visit by Poe and Ravens cheerleaders.
A list of participating Giant Food locations, as well as a template for the letters and more information on all playoff activities, can be found on www.BaltimoreRavens.com/Playoffs.
