The Ravens are going to honor the 10th anniversary of their Super Bowl XXXV championship this weekend when the Buffalo Bills come to town.

It will be a weekend-long celebration, with a private ceremony on Saturday night before the game and a halftime ceremony that will welcome several of the 2000 team stars.

“This is a great way to celebrate what we achieved,” said Ravens Vice President of Marketing Gabrielle Dow.  ”We’re always striving to reach the championship, but we really want to honor our players and organization for such a prestigious accomplishment.  And, we want to incorporate our fans and community in the celebration, as well.”

The list of expected attendees includes left tackle Jonathan Ogden, quarterback Trent Dilfer, running back Jamal Lewis and defensive end Michael McCrary.

Of course, Super Bowl XXXV Most Valuable Player Ray Lewis, a 15-year veteran who currently leads the Ravens with 50 tackles, will be there, too.

Although there will be no public Baltimore Football Alumni autograph signing event, the title-winning players will be honored during pre-game announcements as part of the gauntlet when the Ravens run out of the tunnel.

At halftime, the players from 2000 will get individually introduced on the field, with General Manager Ozzie Newsome offering a speech flanked by Steve Bisciotti and Art Modell.

In addition to the on-field events, the Ravens are placing a 25-foot inflatable replica of the Vince Lombardi Trophy outside of M&T Bank Stadium and will pass out 70,000 posters of the Super Bowl team picture in conjunction with The Baltimore Sun.
