Reporting Jessica Kartalija
BALTIMORE (WJZ)— Fan fever is spreading further. It’s certainly alive and well with the Ravens one game closer to the Super Bowl. Sunday’s win over the Colts has the team heading to Denver this weekend.
Jessica Kartalija is hitting all the Baltimore hot sports as the town gets a purple makeover.
The Bowling babes, as they call themselves, meet at Koopers North for lunch.
And all the talk is about the Ravens.
“We’re going to win. We are absolutely going to win. We have to get out there early enough so that they can get adjusted to the climate,” said Pat Sudina.
These gals aren’t alone. The entire state has purple fever.
“This is the second week of playoffs, and the Ravens are trying to get everyone excited. We have Week of Winning back, so make sure you are paying attention to Twitter, Instagram, the Ravens apps and codes, and pay attention to everything you see to win Ravens memorabilia,” said a Ravens cheerleader.
The Ravens mark their territory outside the county courthouse in Towson and in Bel Air, Harford County.
“It’s just so exciting to see everyone in Baltimore so excited for the Ravens this year. It’s been a really big year in Baltimore in general,” a Ravens cheerleader said.
Back at Koopers North, they’re getting ready for a packed house on Saturday.
“We are going to do $5.20 wings, $5.20 sliders, and we are going to do a $3 Ravens bomb. The reason we are doing $5.20 again is to honor Ray Lewis,” said Miles Perman, Koopers North.
In case you’re curious, a Ravens bomb is “grape vodka, a splash of Razzmatazz, and a little bit of Red Bull,” a bartender explained.
And there you have it.
You don’t want to miss any of the action as the Ravens head to Denver to take on the Broncos. You can watch the game Saturday at 4:30 p.m. on WJZ-TV.
