After the Super Bowl, Baltimore Ravens fans awake groggy, but triumphant

Football fans awoke groggy but triumphant in Baltimore on Monday, riding high on the Ravens’ victory in Sunday’s Super Bowl and nursing themselves back to life after a night of celebration.

“I kept hearing chants in my head all night,” said Steve Stack, 34, who got little sleep after watching the big game with friends at a bar in Linthicum. “I think I watched ESPN highlights all night. I couldn’t get to sleep. You get too amped up.”

Stack, who works in home improvement, was one of many fans facing an early morning at Cross Street Market in Federal Hill, where he was meeting coworkers for breakfast. His crew usually starts at 7:30 a.m., he said, but they weren’t getting underway on Monday until 9 a.m.

“The boss gave us a break,” he said with a laugh.

Outside the market, where thousands of fans had gathered in celebration after the Ravens’ 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers, city work crews were busy cleaning up — emptying dumpsters overflowing with trash and sweeping streets littered with broken bottles, confetti and purple streamers.
