O'Malley Declares "Purple Friday" In Maryland



    Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley has declared January 20 “Purple Friday” to show support for the Ravens ahead of this Sunday’s AFC title game against the Patriots.

    “As the Baltimore Ravens continue their successful playoff run, we wish them nothing but the best of luck as they fight for an AFC title on Sunday,” O'Malley said in a press release. “We will be right there cheering and watching as the Ravens trample over the Patriots on their way to Indianapolis.”

    Numerousstategovernmentwebsites are already wearing purple for the occasion.

    Elsewhere on the Internets, the debate has raged on over whether Redskins fans should become Ravens fans on Sunday. The Washington Post is conducting a poll that as of this posting had 44 percent of responders saying yes, although it should be noted that 16 percent found the question ridiculous. We’ll shift those over to the “no” column.

    We know that it’s tough for Redskins fans to cheer for the Ravens, but it’s better than cheering for the Patriots or Giants.
