Fans gathered at the Inner Harbor to cheer on the Ravens as they left for New Orleans on Monday.
The ice and rain Monday morning didn't stop the Baltimore faithful from crowding the Inner Harbor to rally around the Ravens as they departed for New Orleans and Super Bowl XLVII. Lucky kids who got off school sat on shoulders, 20-somethings belted Ravens chants and several of the football players themselves were seen snapping photos and video of the send-off. Future Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis gave credit to the fans, without whom the franchise would not exist. "Baltimore, Baltimore—there is no Ravens without you guys," said Lewis, who announced his retirement at the beginning of the postseason. "We did this in 2000, and we're not going to New Orleans for nothing else but to bring back another ring to Baltimore." Gov. Martin O'…

Baltimore Colts fans joined local food fans for the ribbon-cutting of the Gino's Burgers and Chicken in Glen Burnie.
Although he wasn't old enough to ever see a Baltimore Colts football game or the original Gino's restaurant in Glen Burnie, Adam Plunka felt making the trip from Pikesville with two arms full of sports memorabilia was worth the trip. Plunka, 22, came with a friend to the grand opening of Gino's Burgers and Chicken on Thursday to meet some of the football legends his father admired. "My father was a Colts fan, but he had to work," Plunka said. But he wasn't returning home to his father empty-handed. Plunka had a Colts helmet, already autographed by Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas, and waited for autographs from Tom Matte, Lenny Moore, Stan White and Gino Marchetti, after whom the restaurant is named.
