His presence was the first here in Baltimore as a representative of what would become the Ravens franchise and a lifetime of football memories from Cleveland and St. Louis.

Comments Off on Byrne reminisces about his quarter century never missing a Ravens game

But that doesn’t mean on the eve of Monday’s season opener in Baltimore that we can’t find some “mixed marriages” of purple and orange. We here at WNST.net have ALWAYS been a mixed marriage of purple and orange from the very beginning:

We’ve NEVER stopped talking about the Orioles and the Ravens…every day. Win or lose.
So far, I can only name two other sports teams that bear the color scheme of orange and purple. Earlier today, Josh Charles tweeted that he thought they didn’t look so good together:
