Fall and winter Sundays are hectic at Dundalk's North Point Liquor & Bar. Fans come early to buy carry out beer and other supplies when the Baltimore Ravens are playing on television, loading up for home parties.

Others duck into the bar to watch the game on the high-definition flat screen and shoot pool at halftime.

Every customer walking in appears dressed in Ravens' gear – caps, jackets, jerseys and sweatshirts – on such weekends. It's also purple from head to toe for Indian owner, "Sonny" Shukla, 36, and manager, "Harry" Singh, 34 – who sports a purple turban when his favorite football team plays.
