Ravens to distribute their version of the "Terrible Towel" -From the Baltimore Sun
In an effort to rival the “Terrible Towels” brandished by Pittsburgh Steelers fans, the Ravens have partnered with UnderArmour and the Wounded Warrior Project to distribute purple-and-white rally towels to the more than 71,000 fans attending Sunday night’s game against the Steelers.
The towels display the Ravens’ logo, UnderArmour’s logo and the company’s slogan “Protect This House” and an emblem for the Wounded Warrior Project, which raises awareness for severely injured service members.
"Our fans are committed and exceptionally passionate," said Ravens vice president of corporate sales and partnerships Mark Brudett, who also encouraged fans to wear purple. "It’s important that every Ravens fan who attends the game gets a towel and displays it proudly. We want there to be a sea of purple and white, so the national audience can witness Baltimore’s excitement and dedication to its team."

There can never be another version of the Terrible Towel. Myron Cope invented it and it belongs to the hearts Steelers fans and is the property the Allegheny Valley School. Good luck trying to copy our 30+ year old tradition!!!!
