I’ve already admitted to crying after Saturday’s game; so I won’t bother to embarrass myself further.
It is absolutely FITTING that the Ravens and Steelers will meet Sunday to determine the AFC Champion. These two teams will play an intense battle on the field; and it is VERY hard to predict anything just yet.
Let me hear what John Harbaugh has to say about Terrell Suggs and Samari Rolle before I start talking smack.

SOME QUICK THOUGHTS:
-Congratulations to SunTrust Athlete of the Morning Cara Facchina; who scored 17 points (her coach Trish Armstrong corrected multiple media reports of 14) as Mt. De Sales knocked off Maryvale 51-27 Friday night in Girls Basketball action. Kudos to everyone who came out and helped us raise thousands of dollars for the Erinn McCarthy Scholarship Fund; as well as the “Think Pink” Breast Cancer Awareness Fund.
-Morgan State 74, Norfolk State 59. The Bears are rolling….
-Coppin State 62, North Carolina A&T 51. I’ll say McKee gets a big 24 in the win.
Talk to you tomorrow.
