Bird Watching?

by: Michael Steffes

Well, looky here. Apparently Taima will no longer be the only game in town. If you aren't sure who Taima is, well, it is the Augur Hawk who leads the team out of the tunnel before home games. Taima has a profile right here.

The big news of the day is that the Ravens are training some baby ravens, with the help of a man in Georgia, to fly around as real live mascots. How did they get this idea? Well they witnessed it first hand last year when the Seahawks took it to the Ravens late in the year. Unfortunately the press release doesn't say anything about Taima, who clearly is a very talented bird waiting for its due.

Thanks to the two readers who sent me this info while I was out.
