  • [UPDATED] Ravens Fan and Game Watch Groups Around the Nation

    I’m moving from Austin back to Baltimore today, and over the last two and a half years, I’ve been privileged to be able to participate in an incredible community of Baltimore Ravens fans deep in the heart of Texas.

  • Welcome to Baltimore! (Or a Playoff Weekend Guide to Charm City)

    It’s no secret that I’m a Ravens fan. Even sitting here in a coffee shop deep in the heart of Texas (with my cowboy hat, boot, deep Texas drawl and a ‘preciation for all those who venture into our fair area of heaven). So, it’s with deep pride that I send Houston Texans back to […]

    It’s a late Fourth of July afternoon here in Bethesda, Maryland and I am sitting here working on a chapter in the new book. Peacefully minding my own business while the steady stream of chips from Tweetdeck occurred, I did not realize what was happening. Steve McNair died. Putting aside the tragedy (he was a […]

  • Live from Ravens Training Camp

    I’m leaving tomorrow for Gnomedex so I don’t anticipate any last minute blogging. Instead, I’ll leave you with a video cast that I produced today from Ravens Training Camp in Westminster, MD for my Suicide Fan weekly sports podcast. For those of you who are sports fans, I hope you enjoy. For everyone else, well… […]
