The Baltimore Ravens are just about to begin the parade celebrating their victory in Super Bowl XLVII over the San Francisco 49ers, and the Twitter-sphere is sending out plenty of pictures of the event. Following the parade route, the Ravens will arrive at M&T Bank Stadium, which is already filling up, according to a picture sent out by the official Twitter account of the Ravens about 40 minutes before the beginning of the parade.

One of the focal points of the parade will be on linebacker Ray Lewis, who had previously announced prior to the playoffs that he would retire following the season. Rob Carlin of Comcast SportsNet tweeted a picture of a Hummer in camouflage paint that is reserved for the 13-time Pro Bowler and future Hall of Fame linebacker.
Matt Lund of MASN tweeted a picture from the field of M&T Bank Stadium where he and many others are gathered to wait for the Super Bowl champions.
The Ravens defeated the 49ers on Sunday, 34-31, in New Orleans, LA. It represents the second Super Bowl victory in Ravens franchise history, the second-youngest franchise in the NFL.
