Jim Mutscheller will be watching the Ravens Monday night. He also makes it to most home games. Mutscheller, 77, is a veteran of the Greatest Game Ever Played, the Baltimore Colts' 23-17 overtime win over the New York Giants for the 1958 NFL championship. When Baltimore got to the New York eight-yard line in overtime, the first play was a one-yard run by Alan Ameche, the second a six-yard Johnny Unitas pass to Mutscheller -- and the third, Ameche's run across the goal line and into football glory.

"In all these years, this is the first time I ever got [fan mail] from a foreign country," he said. "I thought, 'Man, I'm really getting popular.

The Baltimore Sun An out-of-work bridge painter shot a question at Art Donovan, the Baltimore Colts legend making a visit to a city emergency services outreach center Friday morning. "So, when were you inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame?" asked Thurmond Lamar Brown. Donovan, who sat next to his friend and former teammate Jim Mutscheller at the Franciscan Center on West 23rd Street, never missed a beat. "Right after the Civil War," he said. For about two hours, Colts veterans Donovan, Mutscheller, Lenny Moore , Toni Linhart and Doug Eggers helped this 42-year-old social services center get back in the business of serving meals to the city's poor five days a week.

Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs wears a T-shirt that tells the Steel City exactly how he feels about its football team. Pittsburgh wide receiver Hines Ward spits the words "pure hatred" in reference to Baltimore. If this week's one-upmanship between the players left any doubt, several of this city's iconic sports figures said that the Ravens- Steelers rivalry — which has its next act Saturday at 4:30 in the AFC divisional playoff — burns with more intensity than any they've known.
