HA. Man oh man... I figured people have learned why not to do this by now.
Ask Tennessees' and Cincinnatis' players and fans...

Best part is the Raiders fan desecrating the Towel in Baltimore. :)
It's gotta be hard being a Baltimore fan. First the Colts took your team. Then you took the Browns. So you're either an Indy fan or a Cleveland fan. Or you switched teams to the Redskins. Or you're a Raider fan????
What's that saying do unto Cleveland, what you'd want Indy to do unto you? I don't get it. There's no way to live in Baltimore and be a man of principle. You got Modell's sloppy seconds. Unfortunately for you, you've got about as much claim on these Raven's Lombardi as you do on Peyton's Colt's Lombardi.

I was a bit concerned knowing that Ben was injured right before the Ravens were coming to town.
I'm not concerned anymore. The Terrible Towel is poised to strike!

After their third consecutive win against the Steelers, safety Ed Reedhttp://www.baltimoreravens.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.baltimoreravens.com/team/roster/ed-reed/89ece203-7de4-4b40-9651-f16f4c3b7699/) and several Ravens players were reportedly walking toward the visiting locker room singing "Renegade," (https://twitter.com/gerrydulac/status/270414767083122688) the Steelers' adopted anthem by Styx, used to pump up their home crowd in crucial game moments.
Others, including running back Ray Ricehttp://www.baltimoreravens.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.baltimoreravens.com/team/roster/ray-rice/9d941a20-0c76-412d-85fd-165a029d59e6/), could be seen with the Steelers “Terrible Towel” draped over their heads.
Several media took note – and one thought it provided the imagery of something bigger happening between the bitter rivals.
The singing, the towels, Sunday’s slugfest victory and the recent Ravens’ winning streak are all signs that the rivalry scales are tipping in Baltimore’s direction (http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/8651289/baltimore-ravens-take-another-step-tilting-rivalry-pittsburgh-steelers-their-direction), says ESPN’s Ashley Fox.
“Renegade? Perfect,” Fox wrote. “What the Ravens did to the Steelers on Sunday … was part vengeance, part message: We're not going anywhere. You're getting older. Now is our time.
