The Wine'tastic Mile Renamed "The Buck'tastic Mile" for O's Mgr.
March 27, 2013- The Wine'tastic Mile of Baltimore was renamed the "Ray'tastic Mile" for the last playoff-ride of football legend Ray Lewis who played his last NFL game for the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XXLVll.
The Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers 34-31.
The Wine'tastic Mile became the "The Love'tastic Mile" for Valentine's Day Weekend this past February.
The 1.3 mile corridor from Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. and Pratt Street to Harbor East will now be renamed "The Buck'tastic Mile" for the month of April to honor Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter and the O's quest to continue their winning ways of the 2012 season.
The Orioles ended a 15-year playoff drought last-season. There are much bigger expectations for this team entering the 2013 campaign.
The Baltimore sports fans are still celebrating the Super Bowl XLVll win of the Ravens and are looking for a World Series championship ride by the O's for 2013.
It's been 30-years (1983) since the last Oriole World Series win.
Derrick E. Vaughan founder of The Wine'tastic Mile says,"It's been 30-years since the O's last won the World Series. If the Orioles were to win it all there would be a bigger celebration for them than the Ravens. The City of Baltimore is a football town but, the O's have been here the longest and Camden Yards was the start of the new downtown sports complex of the city. It would be something special. I can't put it into words."
