I LIVED THE FANTASY – CHRIS HESSWednesday, December 30th, 2009
My wife and I had a great time even though the trip seemed to go by very quickly. We met quite a few players in the lobby of the hotel and got some autographs. The highlight of my trip was meeting Ed Reed in the elevator and getting my picture with him as he was exiting to go to his room at night.
My wife and I made new friends with the lottery winners and hope to stay in touch with them. Also it must be a small world, because a person that I have not seen in 10 years happens to work for the Ravens and I saw him on the plane before we left. We went out to dinner with him and he showed us the town.
I really felt important with the police escorts, especially when we went to the stadium. Since it was just our bus, all the Pittsburgh fans were wondering who was in that bus.
All in all this was a fabulous trip and I would like to thank the Maryland Lottery and the Baltimore Ravens for a wonderful time.
Chris won the Away Trip to Pittsburgh to see the Ravens vs. Steelers on Sunday, December 27.
