PIKESVILLE, Md. (WJZ) — It’s been three weeks since the Super Bowl and Ravens excitement is still riding high. This weekend, fans turned out to meet team members and buy memorabilia.

It’s a little calmer than the Super Bowl or even the parade, but fans at the Pikesville Doubletree were just as hyped as ever.
“I am really excited because I get to meet lots of players that I haven’t met before,” said fan Morgan Stolba.
“Well, there are a lot of players that I want to get signings. They are really cool,” said fan Jett Watts.
In this two day meet and greet, Ravens fans purchased a variety of team items.
Die-hards like Buddy Martin have gotten them signed.
“How can you get any better than this? World champions, they brought it home and it’s just real nice to get all their autographs,” Martin said.
Lardarius Webb attended this session. More than two dozen Ravens attended in all—and everyone’s still riding the excitement.
“Still riding it. It’s still so surreal. I don’t think we’re really going to feel it until we get the ring,” said running back Damien Berry.
“Every day we’re riding the wave. I just got back from LA just to visit family and friends and they’re still excited,” said tight end Ed Dickson.
Fans say there is an appeal to events like this and they’re finding an outlet for their enthusiasm until next season begins.
“It’s kind of hard to come down but when you do, you realize there’s no football. You gotta wait until next season,” said fans Dawn and Rachel. “We have to figure out what to do with our Sundays now.”
At least until training camp begins.
Players say getting their rings and meeting the president are the next two things they’re looking forward to.
