So obviously I waited a little too close to game time to update the blog properly with the usual ...impartiality that I try to have on here. I'm going to leave the original post as-is since the Ravens really did dominate the Bengals on Monday Night Football like they were playing a pee-wee football league, but here's how the update SHOULD have gone:
Me: "What the hell, Shawn?"
Shawn: "I was on my way into work, and I really had to pee, and I thought about what would happen if Ray had to pee before a game, but he was all suited up already."
Shawn: "I'm not awake yet. Leave me alone."
My fiancee Steve, later that day: "Looks like Ray has a case of stage fright."
