If you happened to meet Dr. Emmett Brown best known for his time machine in Back to The Future and he allowed you one ride to go back in time to that infamous snowy night on March 28, 1984, what would you do?
Knowing what you know today, that the Browns would eventually come to Baltimore and become the Ravens…that in their fifth season in Baltimore the Ravens would produce a Super Bowl Championship while playing in a beautiful state of the art stadium adjacent from the jewel of baseball parks at Camden Yards, both of which are arguably byproducts of the Colts move to Indianapolis…that Cleveland, the city abandoned by the Browns would get a new team and keep their colors, name and history…and the team that left you in 1984 would still be seeking its second Super Bowl victory (the first coming in January, 1971 in Super Bowl V)…after all that, would you go back and undo history to keep the Colts in Baltimore?
If you are one to say that things happen for reasons and that even if given the opportunity to ride in Doc Brown’s DeLorean you would take things as they are, that’s acceptable and understandable.
However, if you are one of those that would take that ride, what would you do and what change would you try to affect that might permanently change the history of the NFL and the Baltimore Colts -- a change that would fill that 13 year gap here in Baltimore without the NFL and restore the city’s heritage?
Would you take Irsay to happy hour and convince him to sell the team? Would convince him to wait? Or would you go back further in time than March 28, 1984 to the date John Elway was traded and affect that signing -- a signing then-Colts GM Ernie Accorsi swears would have happened? Or might you go back to the day that Irsay bought the team from Carroll Rosenbloom?
Or is there something else you would do?
Bring it on …we want to know!
C'MON MCFLY, WHAT'S IT GONNA BE?
