WINDSOR MILL, Md. (WJZ) — With less than two days to go until the Ravens make their second Super Bowl appearance, it just might be the biggest Purple Friday ever.

Kai Jackson spent time with folks at a Baltimore County restaurant who celebrated when the Ravens won their first Super Bowl in the 2000-2001 season.

The drinks are pouring and business is booming at Corinthian’s Restaurant in Windsor Mill.

Reporter: “On those weekends when there were playoff games were you packed in here?”

Owner: “Oh, it was unbelievable, it was a madhouse. Wall to wall people, yes.”

This is Ravens Country, and tailgating has started for the Ravens and Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday.

“We had parties and pep rallies and everyone was dressed in purple. It was a great time,” said Ravens fan Jackie Harris.

At Towson Town Center, Ravens fans and even former defensive end Michael McCrary turned out to support the team’s Super Bowl quest.

“We weren’t missing the last Purple Friday. We were here. Here for the Ravens. Go Ravens! Let’s go!” said Birdie Patrick.

The Super Bowl means food, and Bill Bateman’s is serving their well-known wings.

Ravens fans have spent an entire season supporting the team, getting them through the playoffs, the AFC Championship and now the Super Bowl.

“Oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah! In your face baby,” said Lamonte McMillan.
