    Baltimore bars a sea of purple as fans cheer on the Ravens in second Super Bowl appearance

    BALTIMORE - Giddy Baltimore Ravens fans are hugging, cheering, and pouring into the streets following the 34-31 victory of their team over the San Francisco 49ers.

    Fans wearing the team's signature black-and-purple jerseys and purple-feathered boas mobbed bars including Mother's Federal Hill Grille to watch the team's second Super Bowl appearance Sunday night. They were especially there to support middle linebacker Ray Lewis, No. 52, the only current player who started with the team when it came to Baltimore in 1996.

    So far, there have been no reports of disturbances or damage in the city.

    Fans came hours before the game to get seats. Women arrived with their nails painted purple. Men wore purple Mardi Gras beads. Fans also showed up wearing Lewis' jersey.

    Forty-year-old Darren Love says the celebration was "90 per cent for Ray, 10 per cent for the city of Baltimore."
