BALTIMORE (WMAR) - Is Baltimore ready for some football? The answer is 'yes' according to posts on Twitter.
Ravens' fans are tweeting their excitement for the NFL season opener by the minute.
# Ravens Go RAVENS!!!! Fear the Purple!! - @IamScott_McCall
It feels like Christmas today! Cannot wait until 8:30. Sizzle is gonna knock the nuts and bolts outta Peyton's stupid neck! # RAVENS - @CaseyWood33
The Baltimore Ravens will be taking on the Broncos in Denver. Even though the birds are not playing at home in their nest, Baltimoreans are not keeping things quiet.
"Someone go to the harbor with me tonight to see Keith Urban," tweeted @paige91995.
Paige should have nothing to worry about. Thousands of fans are expected to flood the inner harbor tonight for the free concert.
Aside from the free concert, fans can keep their money in their pockets in the NFL Kick Off Village. There are free games, activities, and even autographs from league players.
But the big question of the day: Will it be Ravens or Broncos?
If Twitter is any indication, the Ravens will be winning the first game of the season.
Now playing on Pandora, Seven Nation Army. seems appropriate on #Ravens gameday. - @ipadba
Kickoff is at 8:30 p.m. Thursday night.
