Linebacker Ray Lewis began his half-hour Hall of Fame induction-cum-motivational hype speech in Canton, Ohio by shouting: “Baltimore! Baltimore! We in the building, baby!”
It was indicative of the former Raven’s relationship with the city: Lewis played the entirety of his 17-year career here, bringing home two Super Bowls. And while that love affair was tarnished with murder charges in 2000, after which the city and organization stood by him, and his more recent hypocrisy on the anthem protests, after which many did not, the bond between Lewis and Baltimore has remained unbroken.
Joining teams like the Atlanta Falcons and our very own Baltimore Orioles, the Baltimore Ravens announced today they are cutting prices on 21 food and beverage options at M&T Bank Stadium.
The move also includes 12 oz. cans of Bud Light and Miller Lite for the very reasonable price of $5. Domestic draughts and 16 oz. domestic cans go from $8.50 to $7, and premium brews of the same size go from $9.50 to $8. Spirits go down one dollar, to $9.
It’s still cheaper to tailgate of course, but think of it this way: It’s now easier on the wallet to keep riding your pregame buzz.
