A family of Ravens fans created this Ravens-themed cover of "Call Me Maybe" in time for your purple Friday.
Just in time for the most important Purple Friday of the year (so far), this enthusiastic group of Ravens fans uploaded this video to YouTube. It's a cover of the summer smash-hit "Call Me Maybe" with a decidedly pro-Ravens spin ahead of Sunday's AFC Championship rematch against the New England Patriots. The creator, who's YouTube account is RobinsMatt, posted the following comments with the song: "It's AFC Championship week and we thought we'd show our support with a song! The lyrics are mine but the song parodied is "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen and she owns all rights to it and whatnot. We're comin for you again, Patriots, but this time we brought a real kicker. You may have already met. ;)" Do you know the performers in the video…

The county will temporarily rename the plaza during the next chapter in the Baltimore Ravens playoff run.
Patriot Plaza was named to honor service members, not Tom Brady. But at least for the next few days, the plaza's name just doesn't fit right. Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz will temporarily rename the plaza outside Baltimore County Circuit Court "Ravens Plaza" at a county pep rally on Friday, according to a county press release. Show up at 12:30 p.m. for a Purple Friday photo with members of the Towson Chamber of Commerce, the Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Towson Council of Community Associations. The Ravens face the New England Patriots on Sunday in the AFC Championship. Last week, Ravens ground crews painted the team's logo on grass at the plaza.

For a second-straight year, the Ravens paint Patriot Plaza for the playoffs.
Headed into the Baltimore County Circuit Court for a low-key civil ceremony, a Rosedale couple ended up with not a white wedding, but a black and purple one. Robert Reid and Brenda Pulliam arrived at the courthouse shortly after noon on Tuesday armed with a wedding license and a bouquet and ready to say their vows in front of a judge later that afternoon. They were detoured by the sight of Baltimore Ravens ground crews, who were putting the finishing touches on a large team logo in Patriot Plaza. "We had to stop for this, to get photos and videos and all that good stuff," Pulliam said. The logo is one of four the team's ground crew is painting in the Baltimore area, including War Memorial Plaza and Federal Hill in Baltimore City and on …

Havre de Grace Patch Editor Sean Welsh, a former Baltimore sportswriter, offers his take on Wild Card Weekend as it pertains to the Ravens.
The Ravens might be unstoppable in the AFC Playoffs. They just need some help. Finding a way to host the AFC title game? Make your plans for Indy. They're Super Bowl-bound. Playing at New England for the conference championship? Gulp. I'm a big believer in the Ravens this season—provided they're playing before 70,000-some screamin' Ball So Hard University students. On the road, forget it. Don't ask why. Even heading into the season finale at Cincinatti, I had little faith. Looking at this weekend's playoff crop, I'm analyzing things from this angle: Who has the best shot of going into New England and picking off the Brady Bunch? After all, not only do the Ravens win at home, but so, too, do we—the residents of the Baltimore area. There's a…
