Hey everyone, I've actually been lurking on this forum for a good 3-4 years before I finally decided to join last week. I don't really know much about the technical aspects of the game (formations, routes, blah blah), so I'll most likely be reading than posting.

Weird I didn’t know the new welcome thread until now. ? 

Welcome to the forums Snicko! Don't worry about the technical aspects, I find you learn more as you go. I played ball through high school and in retrospect realize I knew very little about the game.

Its been like 12 years since my first intro. So might as well...

Your Ravens fandom history

When did you start following the Ravens: 2000- Super Bowl Season
What made you become a fan: Had just moved from BMore city to the BMore county. My older brother and I were stuck in the house for months scared to make friends. Two black kids in an all white neighborhood. The neighborhood kids would occasionally play football within eyesight. Their was lots of hype about the Baltimore defense and we watched some games. My brother made the decision that changed our lives. He went outside the house to play, why? “Because I’m going to go Ray Lewis on them.” As the protective younger sibling I followed. We made friends. And to me, Ray Lewis became more than just a player, but a symbol of evolution.
Favorite current Raven: Justin Tucker
All-time favorite Raven: Ray Lewis
Favorite moment in team history: Mile High Miracle

Your interests
Other favorite teams: Used to be a Kobe/Lakers fan; I do like the Warriors, but I probably won’t be an NBA fan until LeBron retires. Hate what he’s turned the league into.
Hobbies outside of football: Books, Articles, Brunch, writing
Favorite movie: The Matrix and The Lion King
Favorite TV Show: Too hard to decide between GOT, Naruto/Shippuden, Battlestar Galactica, HIMYM, LOST, House, and The Wonder Years.
Favorite band/musical artist: Kanye West and the Zac Brown Band
