was like? >> totally crazy. and when it comes loose, or draw, the ravens are my team and they played a great game. we'll we'll get them next year. >> what was your reaction when it happened? >> total disappointment. to come that far into the game and to lose it at that point was total devastation, but they are a strong team. we are totally behind them. and we will come back next year. >> this bar cleared out pretty quick. there were a lot more people and now they have all just disappeared. >> some of them bursting to watch harbaugh for the forty- niners game. there's a lot of disappointment. you have to move on, and we will. >> thanks. we appreciate it. that wraps up the mood of the
