A Kodak Moment in Foxborough
Go ahead and tell me your fondest memory of the Ravens 33-14 beatdown of the New England Patriots Sunday.
Was it Ray Rice's electrifying 83-yard TD run 17 seconds into the game, the equivalent of the Ravens slapping their business card on the table and proclaiming "We're ready to go to work?"
Was it the Terrell Suggs strip of quarterback Tom Brady that set up the second touchdown? Was it Ed Reed's interception and another crazy lateral to Dawan Landry that led to another score?
I'll tell you mine: John Harbaugh taking a victory lap and high-fiving the ectsatic Ravens fans who ringed the lower bowl of Gillette Stadium.
Harbaugh's face radiated pure joy, and his decision to share that joy with the fans who help pay his salary and his players' salaries was the right one.
It demonstrated once again that he's not a coach all caught up in himself, in X's and O's, in wins and losses, to the exclusion of everything else.
The game is still about people: those who play it and those who watch it.
Harbaugh's gesture was a wonderful finishing touch on a great win for the Ravens.
