While the 2000 Baltimore Ravens will always receive credit from fans and foes alike for being the team that allowed the fewest points in NFL history – and punctuated that task with a defensive unit shutout in Super Bowl XXXV – only four men can properly put into perspective the pain, the growth and the joy of a group that ultimately captured greatness.
The Ravens came to Miami on Sept. 17, 2000, for the first time in their five-year existence and the fans from Baltimore were out in force. It was the first time a Baltimore football franchise had played in South Florida since Dan Marino’s rookie season. A lot had changed from that day in 1983.
It has been said that you need to crawl before you can walk. For the 2000 Baltimore Ravens, much of that crawling was done during the end of the 1999 season. Before Shannon Sharpe came to play. While Trent Dilfer was still sitting on the bench in Tampa Bay, waiting for redemption. While Jamal Lewis and Travis Taylor were still attending college classes and hoping to become first-round draft picks in the NFL.

When the Frank Zappa Experience came to the Modell, it gave Nestor a chance to ask Ahmet Zappa everything he always wanted to know about the bust at the Highlandtown Library. Plus, what's a hologram concert?
At some point, Nestor will find the old tape of his late 1980s #AlmostFamous chat with Schenker during the "Anytime" era but this was the grown up lock back at an incredible career as a metal guitar influencer.
