My husband and I are Ravens fans and have greatly enjoyed the six years that the team made the playoffs and finally the Super Bowl . What an amazing ride! Even this last year the team entertained us with some wild and woolly games. We are terribly sorry that they didn't make the playoffs for the seventh time in a row. However, we must admit that we are really enjoying watching the playoff games without our hearts in our throats and our stomachs in knots for a change. Perhaps we all need this break to regain our physical and mental balance.
