Ed Reed serenaded a packed crowd at M&T Bank Stadium with his rendition of Eddie Money's "Two Tickets to Paradise" during the Baltimore Ravens 2013 Super Bowl parade and celebration. Reed was called up to the podium after Joe Flacco and Ray Lewis had already addressed the crowd. The song came over the P.A. system, and Reed began singing. It was ... well, it was something.

Reed first sang the song after the Ravens' victory over the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game. The win represented Reed's ticket back home to New Orleans, where the Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers to win their second world championship.
Reed, along with just about everyone in Baltimore, seemed pretty darn happy to be bringing another championship back to the city. Rather than ride along the parade route in military trucks with his teammates, Reed walked and gave fans an opportunity to touch the Lombardi Trophy.
At the podium, Reed mentioned the word "repeat," suggesting that he would like to come back with the team next season. Of course, there is the little matter of a new contract to be worked out. Reed closed his speech with a cheer borrowed from the New Orleans Saints.
"Who dat say they gonna beat them Ravens?"
