This is the same hotel we stayed at in 2008. The rooms are $149/night, plus 11% room tax, for the intercoastal view rooms. If you want an oceanview room they are $169/night plus the room tax. I currently have 50 rooms reserved. The cost of the game-day ticket (we will be sitting in the lower section in the endzone), the bus transportation to the stadium and a commemorative tee shirt and koozie will be $150.00.You are to provide your own transportation to Fort Lauderdale.

Both offer non-stop flights from BWI to the Fort Lauderdale airport-which is less than 10 miles from the hotel. Southwest also have flights out of Philly. Thanks, Mike Grimes.

- Two priests decided to go to Hawaii on vacation. They were determined to make this a real vacation by not wearing anything that would identify them as clergy. As soon as the plane landed they headed for a store and bought some really outrageous shorts, shirts, sandals, sunglasses, etc.The next morning they went to the beach dressed in their 'tourist' garb. They were sitting on beach chairs, enjoying a drink, the sunshine and the scenery when a 'drop dead gorgeous' topless blonde came walking straight towards them. They couldn't help but stare.As the blonde passed them she smiled and said "Good Morning, Father! Good Morning, Father!" nodding and addressing each of them individually, then she passed on by.They were both stunned. How in the world did she know they were priests? So the next day, they went back to the store and bought even more outrageous outfits.Once again, in their new attire, they settled down in their chairs to enjoy the sunshine. After a little while, the same gorgeous topless blonde came walking toward them. Again she nodded at each of them and said "Good morning, Father! Good morning, Father" and started to walk away.One of the priests couldn't stand it any longer and said "Just a minute, young lady". "Yes, Father?" "We are priests and proud of it, but I have to know, how in the world did you know we are priests, dressed as we are?" She replied "Father it's me - Sister Kathleen!"The Lone Ranger and Tonto walked into a bar one day and sat down to drink a beer.After a few minutes, a big tall cowboy walked in and said "Who owns the big white horse outside?" The Lone Ranger stood up, hitched his gun belt, and said "I do. Why?" The cowboy looked at the Lone Ranger and said "I just thought you would like to know that your horse is just about dead outside".The Lone Ranger and Tonto rushed outside and, sure enough, Silver was about dead from heat exhaustion. The Lone Ranger got him some water and soon Silver was starting to feel a little better. The Lone Ranger turned to Tonto and said "Tonto, I want you to run around Silver and see if you can create enough of a breeze to make him start to feel better". Tonto said "Sure, Kemosabe" and took off running circles around Silver.Not able to do anything else but wait, the Lone Ranger returned to the bar to finish his drink. A few minutes later, another cowboy struts into the bar and asks "Who owns that big white horse outside?" The Lone Ranger stands again and claims "I do. What is wrong with him this time?"The cowboy says to him "Nothing much, I just wanted you to know - you left your Injun running"...

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
