    First Time In History?



    Was thinking today, with the Ravens winning the Super Bowl AND the Orioles making the playoffs, when was the last time this happened?

    Turns out the Sun wrote a piece on this yesterday. First time in 43 years!

    1970. The Colts won Super Bowl 5, The Orioles won the World Series (Orioles, it's on you to get there this year!)

    And then I remembered that the Nationals and the Orioles BOTH made the playoffs. AND the Redskins and the Ravens ALSO both made the playoffs.

    The last time Washington and Baltimore had both it's football and baseball teams in the playoffs? Well, since Washington baseball hadn't been around from 1971-2005...And the Senators hadn't had a playoff game since 1933...

    This was the first year EVER that Washington AND Baltimore had it's NFL and MLB franchises both making the playoffs.

    FOR REED, BIRK, BOLDIN, RAY, ART, TEVIN, OJ, and BALTIMORE...
    SUPER BOWL 47 CHAMPION RAVENS!!!!!!

    "We don't make it easy, but that's the way the city of Baltimore is, and that's the way we are. We did this for them back home." - Joe Flacco, Super Bowl 47 MVP


    Call me a Special Teams coach again. I dare you! I double dare you, MFer!

    I remember it well. Colts beat Bengals in playoffs and Orioles whipped the Reds in the World Series.
    I want a Flacco jersey! Johnny Bench wore #5
