EASTON, Md.- A lot of area businesses are having office parties to cheer on the Baltimore Ravens ahead of the Super Bowl.
A spread of sandwiches, chips, dip and even Super Bowl cupcakes were on hand for one of those parties held Friday at an office in Easton.
"Everyone is in the spirit and we have been allowed to wear our Ravens gear and just relax and have a good time," said employee Annette Speas of Greenboro, Md. "My boss is a big Ravens fan and she said, 'Let's have a party,' so we are having sandwiches and junk food and just kicking it out at work."
Someone else kicking it out at work was Bonnie Doerfler of Easton, who said she bleeds purple.
"We are so happy, so proud to be Ravens fans," she said. "Several years ago my husband built a big goal post, decorated it in purple lights the whole nine yards. So this gave us a great big reason to pull everything back out again and decorate the house up."
The field goal post may be an old lawn ornament, but the gigantic No. 52 strung up with lights is new.
"With Ray (Lewis) leaving this year and it being his final dance, we decided to do a tribute to Ray. So my husband built me a 52 out of PVC and we decorated it in lights," Doerfler said.
In addition to Friday's office parties, many will be attending their own Super Bowl parties Sunday. Many say the Ravens going to the Super Bowl has been good for the local economy.
"I think it's good for the economy," Speas said. "I think it gets people out, especially in this cold weather."
