Roost 4 & Team CRRUDE Doin’ the Deep Creek Dunk TODAY!

Greetings!

LAST CALL!

Today we’re reaching out to you to ask for your help. On February 21, 2015 (TODAY!!!) we’ve committed to do a daring deed for the athletes of Special Olympics Maryland (SOMD) by taking a chilly dunk into Deep Creek Lake in scenic Western Maryland. Once again we’re dunking as members of the Council of Ravens Roosts Ultimate Dunk Extraordinaires (Team CRRUDE).

Y’all know the drill … follow the link below to my personal Dunk page and donate what you can on my behalf to benefit Special Olympics Maryland!

So please, if you can, make a donation to Special Olympics Maryland on behalf of me or Frosty or Rob taking the 2015 Deep Creek Dunk. Any amount would be greatly appreciated! It all goes to a wonderful cause … and would also help Team CRRUDE out-fundraise all the other teams out there in “Steeler Country”! Team CRRUDE has been the top fundraising team at the Dunk for the last several years. Go Ravens!!!

Thank you muchly! We’ll do our best to make you and all of our athletic supporters (& not just the jocks) proud!

Follow This Link to visit my personal web page and help me in my efforts to support Special Olympics Maryland. Let it snow!!!

Iggy’s Baltimore Sports Report – December 3, 2013

Ravens:
In a wild and crazy Thanksgiving Day Game, the Ravens held on to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers despite the Steeler Head Coach Mike Tomlin interfering with Jacoby Jones in what could have been a game sealing touchdown. Furthermore, if the soon-to-be-demoted refereeing crew had flagged the incident, we could have been AWARDED a game sealing touchdown. But, alas, they missed another good game, and Mike Tomlin is set to endure a hefty fine from the league in what could be a major statement penalty by the league, looking to crack down on sideline interference problems. The Ravens red zone woes continued as the had to settle for 5 field goals, and Ray Rice’s temper got the best of him, almost costing us one of those FGs. All in all, a typical Ravens/Steelers game.

Now, with that win, the Ravens are poised to be the 6th and final seed in the playoffs. Unfortunately, there are 4 more regular season games left including the final 3 against division leaders. Every game is a must win from here on out, which actually started with the Jets game. Formula is simple: Win and we are in. Execution might be more complicated than that. First things first, the Ravens host the Vikings in what looks to be a dreary day with all sorts of precipitation possible. This game cannot be overlooked, nor can Adrian Peterson who can single handedly destroy any team.

Iggy’s Baltimore Sports Report – October 1, 2013

Ravens:
Flacco 3 INTs and credit the WR’s with 2 more. 5 Giveaways. Do you really deserve to win when you do that? That aside, I was really ticked off at the game ending penalty on Suggs. If the QB is delaying to burn more seconds, and we are trying to end the play as quickly as possible and the Offensive line is blocking for the QB, then HE’S FAIR GAME!!! I’ve seen Peyton Manning fake a kneel down, and then pitch a TD pass. Stop babying the QB. That call was wrong, and I stand by it. We shouldn’t have even been in the game at that point, so we are fortunate to have lost by 3 to Buffalo… that’s right, Buffalo. This one could really haunt us.

Problems persist on the run blocking front (or lack thereof). Receivers are playing volleyball. Defense made a rookie QB look good. I guess there is some work to be done this week, against a Miami football club that is coming off a prime time embarrassment on Monday night. Ravens are 0-2 on the road this season. A lot of factors ain’t giving me the warm fuzzies about this game, so be loud down there, and let them know you have their backs. They are gonna need it!

The NFL is looking into expanding the post season to 14 teams, and reducing the preseason to 3 games. This means that only the #1 seed would get a bye, and opens up the potential of starting the season a week earlier, and include 2 bye weeks per team.
