Here's a view from our neighborhood:
I believe you can learn a lot about a city by looking at its sports teams, particularly on the national stage. The city of Baltimore is no exception. It's a place that values loyalty, and relishes its role as an under-dog. In the post-game celebration, Joe Flacco equated the style of victory to the city itself, saying, "We don't make it easy for ourselves..." If you live here, you quickly find out just how true the statement is. Truly, as the city paper said a few weeks ago: Baltimore is a place where winning ugly is a beautiful thing.
Now, back to the celebration.
