BALTIMORE, Md. (WMAR) — On Friday night Purple took over the Baltimore area.

At Looney’s Pub in Perry Hall there was so many people you had to step outside to steal some oxygen.

Among the hundreds of fans was Stacey Ramsland a lifelong fan who has had season tickets since 2004.

“I’m so happy Lamar Jackson is getting his and he’s doing a great job. He spoke it whenever he was drafted that he was going to take us all the way and I believe him. We’re going back to the Super Bowl.”

For Eric Drinks the Brown’s game had his heart rate up throughout.

“It was a very emotional game for it, it was very stressful but we pulled it out in the end which was really exciting,” said Drinks.

Ravens legends Jamal Lewis and Willis McGahee were in the house signing autographs and handing out swag.

“Give Jamal the ball,” said Ramsland.

Two luck fans headed home with tickets.

Over at Pickles Pub General Manager Tom Leonard said the Brown’s game was huge for business so the playoff game should be even bigger.

“Home playoff games it’s just standing room only crazy loud as cane be. It’s fun, awesome.”

Located right across from the stadium, Pickles is the place to be.

Kickoff is Sunday at 1:05 pm.
