The Baltimore Ravens are ready to party like it's 2001.
Joe Flacco threw for 287 yards and three touchdowns en route to MVP honors, as John Harbaugh's squad held off a second-half comeback by the San Francisco 49ers to crown themselves NFL champions with a 34-31 win Sunday night.
For their top-notch effort, the Ravens will get to party like kings all night in New Orleans.
Don't worry fans, it won't be long before you can join them in celebration for the Super Bowl parade.
A major championship parade has to be one of the best things in sports. It's a giant party in the middle of downtown where you not only get to celebrate your team's supremacy, but you have an excuse to skip work, school or whatever other prior engagement you might have had.
There might be something better than that, but I certainly haven't heard of it.
If there is even a slight chance of making it out to watch Flacco, Ray Lewis and most importantly, John Harbaugh, dance like no one is watching with thousands of your fellow fans, I highly suggest attending.
There is simply nothing like it.
If that sounds like something you might be interested in, we've got you covered with all the necessary details.
Note: We'll be sure to keep you updated with all official viewing details once they are released.
