Baltimore Ravens

  1. Original Ravens owner Art Modell named the team after Edgar Allan Poe’s short story, “That’s So Raven.”
  2. Modell chose the team’s primary color, purple, after his two favorite musicians, Sheb Wooley and Prince (in that order).
  3. Before every home game between 1996 and 1998, the team went to IHOP for the All You Can Eat Pancake Buffet. Their record in those games was 2-22, with the only wins coming against two flag football teams accidentally placed on the schedule.
  4. The Ravens operate a small Scientology chapel under Section 103 of M&T Bank Stadium. It sells red vines.
  5. Current owner, Steve Bisciotti, asks fans to remove their shoes when they attend games and to not to speak too loudly because the baby is sleeping.
