- Dates to Remember:
- Tonight - Ravens Rap Show, 7pm. This is the 10th season of Ravens Rap, and through all of the changes over the years, the one constant has been Ravens Roost #44. Let’s make the 10th season the best ever! From Eileen: Yes, we are having a Ravens Jersey giveaway every show. Except last week, it was missed. So Steve will be giving away an extra one if not this week in the next couple shows. Reschedule Reminders: Because of Thanksgiving, we'll film on Tuesday, Nov. 20th not Wed, the 21st. And instead of just 1 set of tickets to a game some distance away, this year we've made a sponsorship deal with JCTickets.net about giving us a few home game sets plus a close trip!!! So we're HAPPY to say we have to giveaway a set to the Raiders game Nov. 11th and a set to the Broncos game, Dec. 16th!! We'll have 1 more set for a home game, as yet to be announced. PLUS Big GAME this year w/ bus trip & couple other perks will be the Game in DC against the Redskins, Dec. 9th!! Bruce Laird will be doing a few special guest appearances and hope to give you those dates soon. We're happy to say John Corsi, owner of JCTickets.net will be coming to show! It'll be great to have Billy Carder of BJ's back, who told Steve he'd be happy to come for his 1st visit since we went to TV! Others will be announced soon! Specifics on your chances of winning tickets giveaways will be made clear at this week's show. Thanks, Eileen.

- A man took his old duck to the Doctor, concerned because the duck wouldn't eat.
The Doctor explained to the man that as ducks age their upper bills grow down over their lower bills and make it difficult for the animal to pick up it's food.
"What you need to do is gently file the upper bill down even with the lower bill. But you must be extra careful because the duck's nostrils are located in the upper bill and if you file down too far, when the duck takes a drink of water it'll drown."
The man goes about his business and about a week later the Doctor runs into his patient.
"Well, how is that duck of yours?" the Doctor inquires.
"He's dead." declared the heartbroken man.
"I told you not to file his upper bill down too far! He took a drink of water and drowned didn't he?" insisted the Doctor.
"No." lamented the man. "I think he was dead before I took him out of the vise."
- I met an older woman at a bar last night.
She wasn't bad for 57, we drank and bullshitted a bit, then she asked if I 'd ever had a mother and daughter threesome?
I said no.
We drank a bit more, then she says that tonight was my lucky night.
I went back to her place.
She put the hall light on and shouted upstairs:
"Mom you still awake?"
- After a night on the town, a young woman brought a new friend home for a late-night drink. "You can't make any noise," she warned him. "My parents are upstairs and if they find out they'll kill us."
Things started getting heated on the sofa, but after a while alcohol got the better of the man. "I have to go," he said.
"Well you can't go upstairs. The bathroom is right next to my parents' bedroom," she replied. "Use the kitchen sink."
So he dutifully retired to the kitchen. A few minutes later, he popped his head around the door and asked, "Do you have any toilet paper, or should I just use a paper towel?"
- Got poop? Let me know! I’m going to try to get this out every Wednesday so if you get it to me by Tuesday I’ll try to include it. Your input is appreciated.

Baltimore Ravens, let’s go
And put that ball across the line
So fly with talons spread wide
Go in and strike with Ravens pride
