BALTIMORE (WJZ) — With less than 48 hours to go until opening kickoff for the Ravens, the first Purple Friday of the regular season was in full swing. There were various Flock Party events, WJZ’s Rick Ritter reports.
It’s time to loosen up, grab your favorite jersey and fine-tune your touchdown dance. Baltimore is just hours away from the Ravens season opener against Buffalo.
“Bills, I’m going to call 21-14 on the game. We’re going to win,” said Calvin Turner, Westminster.
At the Timonium Fairgrounds, a sea of purple kicked off the year’s first Purple Friday with the Countdown to Kickoff Concert.
“It’s pretty electric out here tonight,” said Jonathan Allen Lovelece, Bel Air.
Coming off a season that was decimated by injuries to star players, many are looking for “Cool Joe” to lead the team back to a postseason run.
Confidence isn’t an issue
“Calling it right now… 12-4, going to the Super Bowl. We’re going to win,” said Turner.
The Ravens have lost their past three season openers. They’re obviously hoping to change that on Sunday.
