Ill never understand why everyone asks Baltimore to get over the Colts leaving...its our grudge and we'll do what we want with it. Its an entire generation of football gap because of one drunk, unintelligent, waste of a human being decided to take a way of life right out of a city. The colts are not just a team like they may be to Peyton or Raiders to whatever city they choose to be from. They were a way of life. The players were in our community, the horseshoe itself belongs to Baltimore. Regardless of how many years have passed, the horseshoe still belongs to Baltimore. They are the Colts not because a horse is a neat nickname for a pro-team, but because of Pimlico and the horse-racing tradition of Baltimore. Maybe thats why it still hurts. Right down to the mascot, another city is living with the team our grandparents and parents built. Another city has our past, a proud past and all anyone says is get over it...They have never heard of 'Loudy' Loudenslanger

I remember that Jacksonville game like it was yesterday! Wow the place was loud that day! What a fantastic game during a fantastic season. Lets hope Flacco can deliver some more great memories!

The game against the Seahawks a few years ago was great also and should have gotten a spot on this list. I think that was the greatest comeback victory the Ravens have had.

I know it is cliche (since I'm sure 200,000 people claim they were there) but I WAS there at that Jacksonville game. It sounds corny, and is easy to say after the fact, but you really felt that something special was going to happen that year.

That victory against the Seahawks defnitely should have been on the list. I attended with my friend, one of the biggest Seahawks fans alive, and I thought he was going to have a coronary as the Ravens started scoring. Those of us that remained saw something special that day. Anthony Wright's finest hour!

not sure you could limit it to one game, but the annual Calvert Hall/Loyola football game should be there before the Aberdeen State Championship. Maybe Thanksgiving of 2000 when Calvert Hall beat Loyola in OT to end Loyola long winning streak?

Thanksgiving morning, two rivals, 80 years in the making, and overtime.....

After reading Tom Verducci's article on Yankee Stadium's closing in the most recent Sports Illustrated, I couldn't help but laugh at how silly the thought of scripting M&T Bank Stadium's history is. It's a nice stadium, and I'm far happier rooting for the team that calls it home than the one that plays in the Bronx every day, but M&T Bank Stadium hardly deserves to be honored this way, this week.

Such hostility over a building. Are you also very attached to your elementary school?

Quite right. It is only a stadium. Other than some sporting events, this place has not been around long enough to have any significant history.

And to the people who worship the stadium and the teams that play there, get a life! There are much more important things in the world.

Like C-Mac said the loss to the Colts was embarrasing to the city and the fans. Just another Baltimore sports team that is a loser and can't win!

Yea CHC vs Loyola 2000..0-0 regulation.. Goes to 2OT Where Chc scores on a fumble recovery TD. Loyola scores on 4 and 1 TD goes for 2 and doesn't make it.. CHC breaks the streak of 12 years... ALL of the 1990's and Alumni rush the field..

Please forgive us for wanting to share and celebrate our memories of our stadium. I don't think there's any disrespect intended to Yankee stadium (and no one can deny the very significant place it has in history). But honestly since I've never been there, it just doesn't resonate as much as my very real memories of good times at M&T. And it's on our memories that we'll build our new traditions. Besides, I've been complaining at my son all morning that I don't see how they could leave the Seattle game off the list!

How about the comeback victory against Seattle after being down 41-24 in the 4th quarter? I think it was the 2003 season, not sure.
I heeded my advice my Mom gave me when I was just a boy. She said never leave a game early, even if it seems like it's over.
LOTS of fans were headed out to the parking lot and missed a spine-chilling comeback.

Ah yes, like making negative comments on the internet regarding a subject that you obviously care nothing about. What a life you must have!

What about the Metallica concert where the guy fell off the upper deck. That was one wild 4th of July

Note to Peyton:

Give us back the horseshoe and the colors so they can be retired and call yourself the Indianapolis Racecars or something and we'll start to "get over it". Until then...

What about the game when the Ravens beat the Steelers for the 1st time in Baltimore. It was a Sunday night game in December of 2003 and I was there sporting my purple hair!!!! The energy that city of Baltimore hade that whole day was crazy! It was so intense from the minute I starting tailgating at 10am until the game started. When you walked into the stadium that night you could feel it in the air and you knew we meant business! Since that game the Steelers have yet to beat us at home!!!

By the way to the two punks that obviously don't like football.....What is wrong with you, your a guy and don't have a passion for football?!?! I'm a chick and I probably know more about football then the both of you combined!
