The Ravens are handing out 71,000 purple towels to fans at Sunday night’s Ravens-Steelers game and they’re calling for fans to create a “Purple Out.”
Ravens vice president of corporate sales and partnerships, Mark Burdett, was quoted in the Ravens press release about the game.
Fans are encouraged to arrive in their seats at least 10 minutes prior to the 8:20 p.m. kickoff. “When our players are introduced, it will be a great scene at the stadium and on NBC-TV. We’ll have that ‘wall of purple’ Coach [John] Harbaugh brags about,” Burdett added.
UPDATE: Pictures of the towels were posted by The Mark Viviano Show on Facebook.
Are you in favor of washing out the terrible towels with purple towels, or would you rather just have the crowd out yell the fans from the steel city?
Sadler is the king at the Ray Lewis dance, he doesn't need to practice.
Steelers fans do represent well, but they are also in just about every major city.
I agree Henigin. Flocking is not the word I would use, unless pun is intended.
I actually took a picture of the two other fans to prove that others showed up.
Henigin…if the Stillers are "black and GOLD", what color are the Saints.
The Stillers are black and YELLOW, my friend.
How many times?
Ha! Good one… um, nope, not really. Truthfully, we're just everywhere because we are trying to take over the world.
Where are the purple towels?? Have yet to see any!!!
My fellow Ravens Fans…There ain't nothing good to be said about even the idea of "Purple Towels"…Or Black Uniform Pants with Purple Shirts…Why can't they simply be true to who they are??? Makes us look silly when they play the color-match game! And when they have 10 points — at home — with Cam Cameron and Joe Flacco and Three RX'ers with 600 Career Catches yada, yada, yada…
