We were talking about Edgar Allan Poe just yesterday with no idea that today was his birthday. It's even entirely possible we weren't the only ones who mentioned his name while watching the football game.
For those of you who don't know the Raven's are named to honor Edgar Allan Poe, they even have a mascot named Poe and yell out Nevermore on occasion. Technically the Raven's should be my favorite football team because of that, but I'm still torn between them and the Raiders. (My father found a Raiders' jacket in the trash and has been a fan ever since)
As for Poe, while I do like the Raven, I prefer the Pit and the Pendulum. So happy Birthday Edgar, to bad the team couldn't have won for you.
