As we covered earlier, the Ravens are heading up to Philadelphia for some joint practices with the Eagles this week. While it was very kind of the Eagles to host the team, Head Coach Chip Kelly is taking it up a notch with some 'Pennsylvania hospitality'.
Kelly, who is known for his customized smoothies that are tailored to each and every players' needs, has whipped up a menu for the visiting Ravens. After many sleepless nights of tossing and turning, and watching and reading about the visitors, Chip is proud to reveal his gift to the Ravens, their own personalized smoothie menu. Here are just a few of the delicacies that Chip has crafted.
Chef Chip's Ravens Smoothies
QB, Joe Flacco: Vanilla
Explanation: the smoothie for 'Joe Cool', who has that 'vanilla' personality.
RB, Justin Forsett: Mint Chocolate Chip
Explanation: Forsett has had a 'chip' on his shoulder, going from journeyman back to a Top-10 starter. The mint, which is green, represents all of the dollars from his new contract.
WR, Steve Smith: Iced Espresso
Explanation: 'Ice Up, Son' is Steve's signature phrase, hence the iced smoothie. The espresso gives the smoothie that 'punch', something that Smith has thrown a few times on (and off) the field.
LB, Terrell Suggs: Jalapeño Chocolate
Explanation: Suggs has that 'fiery' personality.
K, Justin Tucker: Banana
Explanation: This smoothie is a timeless classic, it's always 'good'. Just like Justin's kicks.
Chip's gift to the Ravens is certainly a very 'sweet' one, and the team is very appreciative of how much thought Coach Kelly put into his smoothies.
