#10 – Earl Weaver’s Statue Is Unveiled
Baltimore lost their greatest manager this winter. Thankfully Earl Weaver was able to watch the O’s return to the playoffs and was able to attend the six Orioles Legend ceremonies. Seeing his statue unveiled must have been quite a moment for the Hall of Famer.
#2 – Prayer in Thin Air
Its a moment you remember exactly where you were when it happened. I happened to be with family when the impossible happened, and we went absolutely bat crazy.
The Ravens trailed 35-28 to the Broncos with 42 seconds left in regulation. On a 3rd-and-3, Flacco evaded pressure, stepped into the pocket and threw a bomb down field to Jacoby Jones. The play worked to perfection as both corner back Tony Carter and safety Rahim Moore whiffed on knocking the pass down, sailing perfectly into the waiting arms of Jones for the 70-yard touchdown to tie the game.
