One of the perks of getting elected to the Maryland General Assembly is that when the Baltimore Ravens win the Super Bowl, you get to have your picture taken with the Lombardi Trophy and whichever Ravens can be lured to Annapolis. On Thursday morning, it was wide receiver Torrey Smith who represented the championship team as lawmakers basked in the reflected glory. Ravens president Dick Cass told the Senate it's tough to get players to attend events this time of year because it's their off-season but said Smith, a University of Maryland graduate, can be counted on to show up. Smith, standing at the Senate podium with the trophy in front of him, told lawmakers that he "still gets goose bumps" when he sees it. He promised to come back when he gets his Super Bowl ring.

This time a year ago, Joe Flacco was still viewed as a quarterback who couldn't get his team to the Super Bowl . He was still playing for a big contract after betting on himself by declining the Ravens' initial offers. He was still waiting for the Ravens to put their full faith in his right arm and open up their offense. What a difference a postseason makes. Today, Flacco enters the 2013 regular season with a Lombardi Trophy on his growing resume, a nine-figure contract and the respect of the football world after taking home the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player award.

The Lombardi Trophy will make its first public appearance in Maryland since the Super Bowl parade when some Ravens players visit the Maryland State House Thursday.  Lawmakers will honor the Super Bowl Champions with a resolution presented to team president Dick Cass.  A Ravens official said one or two players will also visit, though he would not identify which players will come. House Speaker Michael E. Busch joked that the team wanted to thank the legislators for their crucial support, which pulled the Ravens to victory.

Lardarius Webb had the best seat in the house as the Ravens won the Super Bowl in February. He hoisted the Lombardi Trophy and has a giant diamond ring that serves as a blinged-out reminder that he was a champion. But he was lost for the season with a knee injury in Week 6 and was forced to watch from the sideline as his comrades defended their end zone in that desperate goal-line stand in the final moments of the Super Bowl. Webb said Thursday that he is driven by watching his Ravens teammates win the Super Bowl without him. “Very motivating,” he said.

As Baltimore continued to come down from the euphoria of the Ravens' Super Bowl win, superfan Michael Phelps took to Instagram this week to show the special access afforded an 18-time Olympic gold medalist. On Valentine's Day, Phelps posted pictures of his dogs, Catahoula mix Stella and English bulldog Herman, posing with the Lombardi Trophy. “Champ and champ!!!” Phelps posted under the color photo of Herman, sidling up to the gleaming silver football. Phelps, a regular presence at the team's big games and in its post-victory locker rooms, did not mention how his pooches got so close to the coveted trophy.

With a career-best 13 sacks, an NFL-high six forced fumbles and two interceptions, Terrell Suggs is in the midst of creating quite a resume for NFL Defensive Player of the Year honors. But the Ravens outside linebacker has shrugged off questions about 2011 being his best season as he has shrugged off opposing blockers' attempts to get their hands on him and grab his jersey. He did it again Wednesday. “How many of those do I got?” Suggs rhetorically asked, pointing to a banner of the Lombardi Trophy hanging inside the team's indoor practice facility in Owings Mills.

David Modell, president of the Ravens, is fulfilling a promise with the Lombardi Trophy. He and the Super Bowl trophy will be the "guests" of honor April 17 at a dinner for Carroll County's 18 volunteer recreation councils. The councils will have first crack at the 600 tickets, which sell for $16. A sellout is expected. Modell has appeared twice at recreation council events and promised on both occasions to return with the trophy. "He never said, `If we win the Super Bowl,'" said Barbara Lages, county recreation supervisor.

UNTIL SUNDAY, the words Art Modell and the Vince Lombardi Trophy had not exactly fit together like pieces in the perfect joint. The trophy goes to the Super Bowl winner. Mr. Modell's team, neither the original Cleveland Browns nor its Baltimore Ravens incarnation, had been to a Super Bowl, much less won one. It wasn't so much the trophy that seemed incongruent in the same sentence with the Ravens owner. It was the Lombardi name. In 40 years in the NFL, Mr. Modell had earned a reputation as what Paul Brown, the first and legendary Browns coach, called a "playing owner."

I have zero interest in the Winter Olympics, as usual. I know that opinion puts me in the minority, but I'd rather watch David Wells undergo a prostate exam than one minute of the luge competition. Guess it's just the baseball writer in me. As a University of Maryland graduate, I'm growing a little concerned about the length of time it could take Gary Williams to obtain another victory and pass Lefty Driesell. How long until Athletes in Action appear on the schedule again? The Seahawks must still be wondering how they lost this game after dominating the first half.

The Baltimore-based officers of the Cable Ship Resolute, who are working in the United Kingdom this winter, watched this year's Super Bowl at the Walkabout Pub in Bristol in southwest England. It was one of half a dozen venues in that city featuring Super Bowl parties. The place was packed and the locals were very much into the game. The room was pretty evenly split between Ravens and 49ers fans, with our table of 10 mostly from Baltimore. The game started at 11:30 p.m. local time and went until 3:30 a.m. but it was well worth it. It's great to see American football thriving over here, and it was even better to see the Ravens take the Lombardi trophy.

There is joy in Charm City. The Baltimore Ravens are the champions of the football world. Tuesday, upon the Ravens' return from the Super Bowl in New Orleans, hundreds of thousands of fans lined the streets of Baltimore and filled the football stadium. The city was euphoric and the fan base ecstatic. For the second time in this new century, Baltimore's Ravens are the best team in football. And yet, if not for one man, none of this would have been possible. If not for one man, there would be no Ravens football team.

Among the crowd of some 200,000 people who attended the Baltimore Ravens' triumphant parade and celebration in Baltimore on Tuesday were more than a few parents who had to make a choice between letting their children attend and keeping a day of school. One of those was Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz - who attended the festivities at City Hall with his two sons, ages 9 and 11. “I got them back [to school] for the rest of the day,” said Kamenetz, whose boys attend Gilman.

This was a city pouring out its heart to its football team, a city with a perennial chip on its shoulder telling the world how proud it was of what the Ravens accomplished in one of the greatest playoff runs in NFL history. This was the biggest and loudest and most boisterous victory parade you've ever seen, a two-hour party through downtown Baltimore. It ended the way they'd script it in Hollywood, with the great Ray Lewis holding up the silver Vince Lombardi Trophy in front of a packed house at M&T Bank Stadium, doing that crazy "Squirrel" dance one last time and ending his glorious "last ride" after 17 seasons in a Ravens uniform.

Shawn Dyson closed his barbershop and let his 10-year-old daughter skip school Tuesday, hoping they could become part of Baltimore sports history. "When you have moments like this in your life, you've got to experience them," said Dyson, who's 49. "This is an epic moment for Baltimore. " Ravens fans called off work, skipped school and brought downtown Baltimore to a standstill Tuesday to welcome their Super Bowl champions home with an exuberant parade and victory rally. The morning rush hour became a logjam as an estimated 200,000-plus people from across Maryland poured into the heart of the city, standing shoulder to shoulder before City Hall, lining both sides of Pratt Street and filling M&T Bank Stadium to capacity.
