http://www.youtube.com/user/thewestwingla#p/u/2/wfzF2_8wMlE Click onto the link to see their YOU_TUBE video. They are diehard Ravens fans, who live in La. They are truely the Ravens biggest fans outside of Baltimore. I recently had the chance to talk to this LA group, and here is what they had to say…..
Tim Lumber: Can you tell us how you 1st decided to create the West Wing Ravens fan club?
West Wing La: A few years ago we had about 2 different groups that would huddle around different bars in the area. This year one of our bars shut down so we were forced to create a facebook page encouraging all Ravens fans in LA to meet at a brand new bar called The Parlor. Since it was new we knew we had a good shot at taking it over right away. First night against the Jets we had about 20 folks there. Now, with word of mouth and a little internet marketing we’re packing the place with 100+
Tim Lumber: In Baltimore, we hate the Steelers, we call them the Squeelers. How bad do you all have Sh*ttsburgh?
West Wing La: Steelers fans out here are the worst. Most aren’t even from Pittsburgh which really drives us crazy. Every now and then a Steelers fan will walk into our bar, realize how many Ravens fans are there and turn right around out the door. If they do actually come in they are immediately showered with boos.
Tim Lumber: Say what ever you want! This is your chance to speak to Baltimore Ravens fans directly.
West Wing La: If you know anyone from Baltimore who is now living in the Southern California area let them know about us. All who rep the 410/443 are welcome in out house. Have them visit http://thewestwingla.com to get all the info. We’d love to have them.
Tim Lumber: Do you all have a website link, or facebook link, anything you would like to promote?

I wanna thank all the fans of the West Wing La, and YOU ALL ARE, truely apart of the Ravens, as much as we are in Baltimore! Go Ravens!!
We here at Ravens Red Zone, the greatest Ravens website of all time….wanna wish you Ravens fans a HAPPY THANKSGIVING! We hope you GOBBLE, GOBBLE on some Turkey! Not sure how much turkey you plan on eating, but 469 pound Ravens Red Zone columnist Joe Moko, will attempt to eat a 18 pount butterball turkey in 4 hours today. We will tell you if he is succesful or not. In the meantime…go eat already…gobble…gobble…gobble!!
Thanks for nothing, Oakland! At least our fans outnumbered Panthers fans on Sunday. In fact, I would equate the attendance to being that of an Orioles game(more away team fans than home team fans). Kudo’s go to everyone who made the trip! I wish I could have been among you.
Despite the high score of the Ravens, they still have a lot of troubles to sort out. I still keep hearing people saying that the Superbowl is in the bag. I’m not sure if they are messing with me, on drugs, or just that delusional. The Ravens have a fantastic team, on paper. Then again, so does Cincinnati and they are occupying the spot usually reserved for Cleveland!
Yes, there were a lot of positives in the game, but the flat performance by the offense in the second half is one of the problems that need to be taken care of. The defense might be able to claim that they didn’t know enough about the new players on the Panther’s offense, but that doesn’t hold water with me. St. Pierre oftentimes looked like a rookie, but if anyone has an excuse, he does. He only had 4 days to learn the offense and practice with the players. Some of his incompletions were his fault, but many were simply dropped by the receivers. At least they did put some points on the board(*cough*49‘ers*cough*), but this one should never have been in question.
Carolina never did quit, although there were times they looked completely clueless. It’s only going to get harder from here. We still have alot of tough games coming up. Even though we will close out the season against the Browns and Bengals, there is no such thing as a “gimme” in the NFL, and both of those teams will want to play spoiler roles.

Last week, I did a exclusive interview with a 57 year old Ravens fan named Dan Hickey. The rookie is a warehouse order puller, who rakes in $8.85 a hour. It took him 6 months to save for a trip with game ticket and hotel to Carolina. This game was war to him. He was pissed for years over Carolina beating us out on the old NFL expansion draft years ago. He claimed he wanted payback.
I sent my reporter Tim Conway to that game, to follow Dan Hickey. Here is his report….
Hello folks, Tim Conway a Baltimore sports reporter for Tim Lumber. I made the dreaded drive to Carolina to cover a Mr. Dan Hickey, a 57 year old man, nearing the age of a senior citizen, who came here for more than football and beer. He came for blood! Before the game I captured his comment on my voice recorder. “Its been a very longtime in the making. I waited for this day for over 10 years. My name is Dan Hickey, and I love my Ravens. I am hoping for some trouble today. I feel Baltimore would be happy if I beat a Panthers fan here today” said Hickey prior to entering the stadium.
As I followed Hickey, I found he was all talk. At one point I feared for my safety. He has puney arms, is very weak looking. He made a rude remark to a Panthers fan out near the concesion stands, when that fan retalited, by shoving him to the ground. Mr. Hickey got up, and you could see the fear in his eyes. He backed down.
I asked him was he afraid, and why he didnt do nothing when that fan shoved him to the ground? “I didnt want to hurt him. I made him think he won by pushing me down” says Hickey. As we sat in our seats, behind a group of Panthers fans, they constantly cussed out the Ravens. Mr. Hickey didnt say a peep. This guy apparently is no relations to Ravens Red Zone columnist Joe Moko. The man they call Golden Gutt would have knocked there lights out. Hickey, just sat there looking intimdated by the fans. He is not a warrior in my book. Dan Hickey a tough guy? Dont bet on it! This is one story i regret going all the way to Carolina for.

Robert Van Peet…Joe Moko’s biggest enemy and arch rival will write one story next week for our Ravens Red Zone. Van Peet a lifelong Squeelers fan, will have the freedom to say anything he chooses. “Next week, when my blog gets published it will answer all the questions you all have on me. I will address the halloween situation with Moko. I will talk about my love for the Steelers and Heinz Ward. I will also tell Baltimore fans what I think of them ratbirds. Joe, I know you cant read since you are illeterate…so get your boy Tow Truck Tom to read it to you. I have a special message just for you b*tch” says a angry Robert van Peet.
Robert Van Peet was once a top 20 heavyweight MMA prospect. His legendary bareknuckel mountain man fight with Ravens Red Zone columnist Joe Moko is still considered by people who were there, as the greatest fist fighting spectical of all time. It was reported a big wig UFC scout was on that mountain top in that freezing -20 degree fight. Van Peet slipped on 1st punch as he tried to throw a wild right hook, and tore a major ligament in his knee. Moko badly broke Van Peets nose, and Van Peet was heard screaming for help. The Steeler fan took a bad beating from the Ravens Red Zone columnist. Van Peets nose was sideways after the fight was stopped. He is now called HOOK NOSE by several hillbillys in Max Meadows cause of it.
Van Peet would never fight again out of embarassement. There is speculation he may challenge Moko in this years Winter Classic bareknuckel fest on Christmas Eve. Now pumping gas for the hated BP gas station, Van Peets life has been spirraling out of control. He looks for redemption next week, by writing a exclusive story for Ravens Red Zone. What will Van Peet have to say about us Ravens fans? Will he man up to the Loko Moko?
A few weeks ago I lied to you drunks, and said I was sold on Flacco and the price tag it will cost to buy one of his jerseys. I aint buying jack. Flacco has no clue how to distribute the football evenly to his 3 Pro-Bowler WR’s. Boldin the most talented of the group aint even seeing any passes coming his way. WTF Flacco?
Mason has been seeing most of the balls coming his way. Then he reportidly got in Flacco’s face and threatened to beat him down like Hulk Hogan during Sundays game in Carolina. Why is Mason crying? Yeah I wish he would have played rock-em-sock-em-robot with Flacco and knocked the wacco out of him. But Flacco needs to target Boldin and Houshmanzadah before Mason. Mason is scheduled to retire after this season, and lets keep Housh happy, so he re-signs next year with us.
I have seen enough of Flacco and his stupid *ss Jersey Shore “The Situation” haircut. Maybe we should ship him and his stupid WAHL clippers on a GreyHound Bus back to the Jersey Shore. This QB is overated. He is a damn bum Baltimore, its time we admit it…and agree on this. Flacco leave Baltimore at once! Marc Bulger STEP UP…we need ya bro!!
The Ravens stomped the clueless Panthers yesterday 37-13. Ed Reed intercepted a pass and Ray Lewis did as well both resulting in TD’s. The Panthers got put down in front of 70,000+ strong in Baltimore, as fans were heard laughing at the Panthers. “We laughed most of the game. This team is so dumb its actually funny man. I wish we could play the Panthers every week, we would be best team in NFL history.” says Ravens junkie Dan Holden.
Ravens Red Zone bad*ss columnist Joe Moko said “This team s*cks yo. I aint never seen a team get stomped like dat. They aint even NFL worthy yo. Maybe they should get booted to that CFL league”.
The Panthers arent the king of the NFL jungle, I think we learned that yesterday. The Ravens are flying over the competition this year. We have 13 Pro-Bowlers they said on TV, its the most in the NFL. We are like the hated New York Yankees of the NFL. We have the best roster.
If we aint the greatest NFL team to ever play…then somebody doesnt know football. We are like the 1990 Ghetto Boys rap group CD…”We Cant Be Stopped”!! Its like our roster is filled with Rocky Balboa’s. Its like we have a Hall of Fame football team playing. Its like the football GODS, decided to create a DREAM TEAM for the NFL. We are the BEST…point blank!
Alot of people are running around town the past few days, already celebrating a Ravens victory over the Panthers. Seriously, knock that crap off! Last week, the Ravens SHOULD have rolled over the Falcons, but instead ended up losing. If history teaches us anything, it’s that the Ravens can’t take anyone lightly(remember the Browns game in week 3?)
The Falcons gave the Ravens more problems than they should have, and the blame rests squarely on the entire team. No one can really use the “we didn’t have time to prepare, blah blah blah”, because the Falcons had also played on Sunday. Personally, I don’t think ANY team should play a Thursday game right after playing a Sunday game. Oh well, at the cost of that game, the Ravens have extra time to prepare for the Panthers, not that they’ll need it, right? Crap.
Our once uber dominant defense has been showing it’s flaws, and teams are taking advantage of that. All of the writers are quick to point out that we don’t have the same defense as we did in 2000. Really? It’s been 10 years, and those who haven’t moved on or retired, have gotten older. That’s life. Making the comparison at the start of the season was unfair. Each year, the team changes. That’s how it is.
The offense reminds me of Baltimore’s weather; changes constantly. One minute Flacco is firing footballs all over the field, the next; he’s getting rushed/sacked and generally looking like a rookie again. Harbaugh is the same, his face changes from confident, to befuddled and back again. Part of that may be due to the officials(whom I’ve complimented this season, but won’t make that mistake again!) who seem to have vision problems. Defender gets knocked to the ground, and somehow that’s NOT offensive pass interfearance?
The Ravens will be dealing with several unknowns this week. The Panthers may be 1 & 8, and been hit by injuries, but you can’t count them down yet. If anything, a team already out of the playoffs can be dangerous to play against. They have nothing to lose, and are playing for pride(as well as jobs). The Ravens need to get back on track, and need a win this week. Many people are saying the Steelers don’t have a chance this week(including a dedicated Steelers fan where I work) against the Raiders. If that’s the case, the Ravens can secure the top spot in the AFC North with a victory.
On the up side(for the Ravens), the Panthers are giving up big numbers on the scoreboard. Unless the Panthers piecemeal team can take advantage of the “Unknown Factor”, the Ravens should have little problem putting points on the board. The analogy that comes to mind, is one I see where I work at during the late spring and summer. Barn Swallows don’t like the resident cats that roam the place, and will attack a cat out in the open. I’ve seen groups of them dive-bomb attack a cat, and make it run for cover. I’m seeing that happen this Sunday.
Ravens 31 – Panthers 16
