Ravens’ faithful take to streets

— BALTIMORE (AP) — Hundreds of giddy Ravens fans poured into the streets Sunday night, whooping, hollering and high-fiving complete strangers as they celebrated the team’s 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

On the far opposite coast, however, a spirit of hope and anticipation rapidly faded into sullen disappointment as dejected 49ers fans tried to absorb their team’s loss.

In the East, Patrons who packed into Mother’s Federal Hill Grille in Baltimore to watch the Ravens’ second Super Bowl appearance since the team arrived in the city in 1996 jumped up onto the bar and began belting out a rendition of the Queen song “We are the champions.”

Bartenders sprayed purple party string into the air.

“I love this team. I love this city!” screamed Andrew Bieler, 21, shortly after the game ended.

Ashlee Tuck, 28, shouted “Yes!” and alternated between kissing her boyfriend and dancing as fans streamed out of the bar.

Michael Falls, 25, said he plans to take Monday off from his accounting job and his boss was going to do the same.
