The road to the Super Bowl starts here. First stop: Alonso’s.
“We decided it would be fun if all of Baltimore could get in on the fun,” said a Ravens official.
The purple parade is on the road through Maryland.
“Ravens like ‘Lobstah,’ New England Lobstah. Patriot Lobstah,” said a pumped up fan.
At the Gallery in the Inner Harbor, everyone has Ravens fever.
“I’m here to support the Ravens! Go Ravens!”
“Go Ravens, go Ravens! We’re going to kick some butt! Ball So hard. We’re going to do it. Super Bowl baby! Yeah, Ravens, all day, we’re going to the championship, and the Super Bowl and we’re going to party like crazy! Yeah, that’s how we roll.”

“We are feeling very confident about the Patriots. They don’t have the defense that the Texans had, and we are going to put some numbers on the board,” said a fan.
Cheereladers, playmakers and fans hopped on the roving rally to spread purple pride throughout Maryland.
“I want to go up there and support the team, bring us home a win. I went to Oakland, and it seemed to work then,” said a fan.
“I am here to cheer on the Ravens. I hope we go all the way this year,” said another.
