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.
When David Modell died in early 2017, Nestor reached to many of the Super Bowl XXXV heroes and early Ravens players to discuss the Modell family and coming to Baltimore to built a legacy.

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.

The picture is from October 1996 at the Indianapolis airport when Nestor ran into the Governor with Ricig's Bob Irsay dummy on a stick. The conversation is Part Two of a spicy chat with John Moag and Schaefer at The Barn to kickoff the Ravens' second season on 33rd Street at Memorial Stadium.
