Ravens Weekend

November 09, 2007|By EDWARD LEE

Cornerback Derrick Martin's first career start was rough as he was beaten on two of Ben Roethlisberger's touchdown passes in the Ravens' 38-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night. But Martin finds solace at home.

What's the one thing people don't know about you?

They might not know that my cousins live with me. I take care of my two cousins who are twin 14-year-olds and go to New Town [High]. There was a situation at home, and I wanted to get them out of there. It's funny watching them grow up because it reminds me of when I was young and doing some of the same things they've been doing. So I'm just trying to help them out a little bit.

What's been the biggest adjustment with taking care of two teenagers?

They eat so much. I was wondering why my wife kept asking me for money all of the time. I thought she was going shopping, but it's always for groceries. But that's OK.

What's the best show on television?

Right now? Grey's Anatomy. It's just like a soap opera, but it comes on at night for me. So I'm able to watch it. About 10 to 15 of us in here watch it. If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?

I would want to be like a chameleon. You could change into different people. I could morph into you and walk around and talk like you and nobody would know. That would be cool, man. I don't know who I would morph into, but I would be cool. I promise you that.
