Super Bowl 47 XLVII Ravens

Just an FYI, I have listed 33 items on Ebay for anyone who maybe interested figured it was a good time to thin the herd of some doubles.  I will post a link here for one of the items then you can look at the other items from there if interested. Figured if I get some funds I can buy some stuff for the baseball season and not feel to bad about it. Some of the items are the lesser names of the Super Bowl Champions! But there is also Flacco, Rice, Boldin stuff so a good mix. If you have any questions lmk. Thanks,

Me on the field at the celebration
Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl 47 & World Champions!
Celebration Fireworks! 
Joe Flacco & Ray Lewis with the Lombardi Trophy
Went to the parade in Baltimore today was an absolute circus. We made it down to the stadium it took about twice as long as it usually does. Looked in the stadium was already filling up but we decided to go out back to see if players were coming in and a few did and some actually stopped and signed. It was a great spectacle to be a part was worth the day off work and wouldn't mind doing it again next year.
Ravens that signed:
1) Ed Reed - 8x10's.
2) Sean Considine - 2 Cards.
3) Tyrod Taylor - a Card.

As a season ticket holder for the Baltimore Ravens yesterday's game went from a blow-out and an easy 2nd half to a nail-bitter in the matter of 34 minutes! was a great game with the outcome I was hoping for, but I must say that the NFL has to do something with the officiating the calls are so inconsistent that the game I feel is slipping. There was no holding calls and then you have Cary Williams shove an official and not only doesn't get tossed out of the game didn't even get a penalty! Just a few random thoughts I will try and post some pictures from the parade tomorrow!
