ON THE SUNDAY of the Ravens' first-ever regular-season home game at their new stadium, I arrived at the park -- ticketless. I hadn't come to see the game. I was just curious. I wanted to see for myself how this large and expensive new sports arena functioned in the context of downtown. Did the same pre-game excitement fill the air as it did on the fall football Sundays around the old Memorial Stadium and Waverly neighborhoods?Standing under a hot September sky on the light rail platform, I looked out across the very new Baltimore that's been created here in the last decade.
