On the Ravens

Marques Ogden can remember the last words his dad, Shirrel, spoke to him days before he died. Shirrel Ogden wanted to be out of a Washington hospital and in the stands at M&T Bank Stadium on Sept. 17, when the Ravens face the Oakland Raiders in their home opener.

"I took him his hat, cane and glasses. He told me he wanted to be at that game, and then he threw me out of the room because he said he was tired," said Marques, smiling.
