ボルチモア・レイヴンズはマイケルKを称える. Williams with his whistle from 'The Wire'

の笛を吹いた演出 “デルの農夫” Mを鳴らした&T Bank Stadium ahead of the ボルチモア・レイヴンズ’ 勝利 日曜日に, honoring an iconic Baltimore character and the late actor who brought him to life.

The tune was an homage to マイケルK. ウィリアムズ, who starred in the Baltimore-set series “ワイヤー” as Omar Little, a feared and revered stick-up man. ウィリアムズ died earlier this month in New York at age 54.
Though he was a native New Yorker, Williams endeared himself to Baltimore for his iconic performance in “ワイヤー。” ウィリアムズ’ portrayal was a complex, celebrated take on a character who could have been reduced to a stereotype, a gay man who robbed drug dealers but adhered to a strict moral code. Little would whistle “デルの農夫” — though some believe it was A-Hunting We Will Go,” which shares its melodyto warn potential targets of his arrival.
    The Ravens shared a video of the moment when the song began, just before the players charged onto the field, and a packed crowd cheered when they recognized the whistle.
