Hello readers of The Ebony Bird,

My name is Joe Barnes, and I’m the new lead writer here on the blog.  Those of you who have participated in live blogs might know me as J-Yerty.  This post is just to give you some information about me.  I am a student at Rutgers University, in my first year in their Journalism program.  I’m 20 years old and live outside of Baltimore.  I’ve been a Ravens fan for as long as I can imagine, and there’s no better time to take over here as lead writer than right now, before one of the biggest games in franchise history.  My favorite Raven of all-time was Tony Siragusa, and I’ve had the privilege to meet and talk to many Ravens players over the years.  This is my first time being a lead writer on a blog, but I used to write some articles for Digitalsports.com, a high school sports site.  Regarding live blogs, I should be able to do them, but maybe not every week, and Jarrett might continue doing them, according to his last post.  I’m excited to be blogging here and look for more posts on the upcoming game

    Welcome to the FSB family Joe.  Hope you have fun with us, and enjoy it.  Tough loss today to the Steelers.  With two weeks left in the season, it will be interesting to see what unfolds for the teams.  Short week with the game on saturday in Dallas.  You need a victory more than ever now to keep your playoff hopes alive.  Again welcome, have fun and enjoy the season.
