Move over Dallas Cowboys: Baltimore Ravens New Rival for Redskins?

By Ricky Allen

Have the Baltimore Ravens become the new “Dallas Cowboys” for the Washington Redskins?

Yeah.Think about that for a moment.

When the Redskins play Dallas, it’s  a great time to harass every Cowboys’ fan I see beside me at the stoplight, in the  WalMarts,  gas stations… and church.

The funny thing is they expect it, and are always ready. That makes it even funnier. That’s how in-depth the historical rivalry is.

However, there’s a new rivalry emerging against the Baltimore Ravens.  I feel this weekend may take that to a whole new level.

It’s enough that Redskins fans have to watch the Baltimore Ravens play in a championship game.  It’s going to be even worse to watch them in the Super Bowl, if they get that far.

And if they win? We’ll never hear the end of it.

This weekend is going to divide the District (if it isn’t already). Some  have claimed regional reasons to why they’ll cheer for the Ravens. I don’t want to deal with that saturation of Ravens’ fans, and the bandwagon jumpers that love them.

Why? Because they’re going to think they own D.C.

Epic Fail.

At first I didn’t feel this way. Over the years, however, the Baltimore Ravens have grown into this powerhouse. They want to feel like they’re the team for the DMV (D.C., Maryland, Virginia) area.

Do I hope they lose this weekend? Yep. Do I care about the whole “Well they’re from our area” ? Nope. I’ve been to Baltimore  enough times to know they’re  nothing like Redskins fans.

You can’t compare Redskins fans to no one.  Ravens fans? Yeah,  they sound a lot like Cowboys fans.

There’s a definite rivalry brewing-An odd one, but there’s a movement.

With that being said, Come get me Baltimore.
