Regardless of where you stand when it comes to football, Super Bowl Sunday is a day with something for everyone. You don’t need to be a fan to enjoy the event, the food, the commercials, and the halftime show.
Since we are located in Maryland, 40 minutes outside of Baltimore, Ravens fans were going crazy for the game. Of course, McDaniel felt extra pride, having been the home of their summer training camp for years before the lockout.
Even with the number of friends I have who live locally, only one of my roommates was cheering for the Ravens to win. The rest of us either didn’t care or wanted to see the 49ers win. Together we gathered around the TV with friends and a variety of food, including wings, pizza, and nachos, and settled in to watch the game.
The Super Bowl was a great way to break up the monotony of a typical Sunday. The football turned out to be a good competition, Beyonce killed it during the halftime show, and a number of the commercials were entertaining.
After a well-played game against the New England Patriots, the Baltimore Ravens are going to the Super Bowl!
While the Ravens aren’t my favorite football team (that distinction goes to the Packers), I’m excited because life on campus (once the semester starts back up) is going to be a lot more exciting!
McDaniel College and the Ravens have always had a special connection. Through 2010, the Ravens held their annual summer training camp on campus, which made Westminster a hotspot for Ravens fans hoping to see their team in action. Disappointingly, the Ravens now have training camp at their own facility in Owings Mills, Maryland, but the Westminster community still feels closely connected to the team.
Since a lot of people on campus are from the Baltimore area and other parts of Maryland, McDaniel is full of Ravens fans. And as a result, I predict that the energy and excitement of the first week of the semester will be higher than it usually is because it will lead up to the Super Bowl!
