Things to check out
Sidewalk Keyboard Mosaic
The stadium was formerly the site of a piano factory, and as a result a sidewalk keyboard mosaic has been placed on the southwest corner of the stadium. The mosaic honors the history of the stadium’s location and is a fun thing to check out for anyone attending a Ravens game.
The Talon Pub is a great place for fans to grab something to drink before or during the game. Not only does it serve a great selection of alcoholic beverages, but it also offers tons of large televisions so you can keep up with the latest NFL news. The Talon Pub is located on the lower level concourse near Section 148.
Be Loud on Defense
To upset the opposing offense, it’s tradition to beat on the seat in front of you and scream at the top of your lungs so opponents can’t hear their play calling. The tradition has helped the Ravens consistently have one of the best defenses in the NFL, so join in and aid the Ravens in their quest for victory.
Baltimore Ravens Fight Song
Baltimore Ravens Lets go
And put that ball across the line
So fly on with talons spread wide
Go in and strike with Ravens pride
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT
Ravens dark wings take to flight
Dive in and show them your might
For Baltimore and Maryland
You will fly on to victory
The White Stripes
The White Stripes song is used to pump up the crowd and team on gameday.
I’m gonna fight ’em off
A seven nation army couldn’t hold me back
They’re gonna rip it off
Taking their time right behind my back
And I’m talkin’ to myself at night
Because I can’t forget
Back and forth through my mind
Behind a cigarette
And the message comin’ from my eyes says, “Leave it alone.”
Don’t wanna hear about it
Every single one’s got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the hounds of hell
And if I catch it comin’ back my way
I’m gonna serve it to you
And that ain’t what you want to hear
But that’s what I’ll do
And the feeling coming from my bones says, “Find a home.”
I’m going to Wichita
Far from this opera for evermore
I’m gonna work the straw
Make the sweat drip out of every pore
And I’m bleeding, and I’m bleeding, and I’m bleeding
Right before the lord
All the words are gonna bleed from me
And I will think no more
And the stains comin’ from my blood tell me, “Go back home.”
