Ravens decide to team build with ScarJo
By Jamison Hensley
OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- As far as team-building activities go, the Baltimore Ravens went from visiting Gettysburg last year to seeing ScarJo on the big screen this year.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh surprised his team by shortening Wednesday's practice and taking the players to see the Scarlett Johansson flick, "Lucy."
Harbaugh said the movie was a unanimous choice by the leadership council, which is comprised of quarterback Joe Flacco, guard Marshal Yanda, linebackers Terrell Suggs and Daryl Smith, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, wide receivers Torrey Smith and Steve Smith and punter Sam Koch.
"To be honest with you, I can't remember the name of what we're going to see," Harbaugh said after Wednesday's practice.
The Ravens began the day with a walk-through, where they focused on the mental part of the game. Then, Harbaugh rewarded his players by taking them to a nearby theater to see a movie that is described by IMDB.com as "a woman, accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic."
Hey, it's got to be better than "Let's Be Cops," right?
