Ravens A Big Draw For TV Talk Shows

Ever since the Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII, they have been in high demand for both late-night and day-time talk shows.


Winning the Super Bowl has its privileges and makes the players and coaches a lot more popular than just with the football "community." The general public wants to know more about the players, their lives on and off the football field, and the person under the helmet and shoulder pads.

QB Joe Flacco was the game's MVP, and after going to Disney World like the annual tradition calls for, was shipped up to New York to be on The Late Show with David Letterman. Joe showed he indeed does have a dry sense of humor and even threw a sweet spiral to Letterman from the stage into the crowd.

RB Ray Rice was on 'Live with Kelly and Michael,' with the connection being Michael Strahan, formerly with the New York Giants.

Head coach John Harbaugh is going to follow Flacco and appear on Letterman tonight (Thursday). Joining Harbaugh tonight on the show will be actress Sally Field and an Elvis Presley tribute artist.

Also on Thursday night, WR/KR Jacoby Jones, who is also on this week's cover of Sports Illustrated, will be on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.' Jacoby will share the stage with two McGraw's, Dr. Phil and musical guest Tim McGraw.

Most likely, the TV appearances will continue, both on a national as well as obviously here around Baltimore, as the Ravens players and coaches are riding this wave of popularity to the maximum and deserve to enjoy it while it lasts.
