It’s a simple effect, really.
Take a purple filter and place it on top of a bank of lights.
No big deal — unless you live in Baltimore this week.
As the Baltimore Ravens prepare for their Divisional matchup against Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium, the home base of Ravens National sees purple. Everywhere.
It’s as close to a “college feel” that the National Football League can provide. People want to dress up in purple, even if they don’t know the difference between a side judge and a back judge. A collective case of Ravens fever has hit Baltimore. And, for once, it’s an illness no one wants to get rid of anytime soon.
Last year the Ravens and their fans were just happy to land in the AFC Championship game. It’s a different feel this year, isn’t it?
This team expects to fly to either San Diego or New York and extend their work schedule into February.
I’m guessing the purple filter can last for another few weeks.
