    he Baltimore Stallions celebrated their Grey Cup championship Sunday night in the West Village Commons Building at Towson University.

    It had been 20 years in the making.

    The Stallions spent two years in Baltimore — 1994 and 1995 — winning the Canadian Football League title in their second season, but left before the Ravens arrived in 1996. The team never had a chance to commemorate their championship victory with the city to which they brought the title.

    The team's 20-year reunion on Sunday was the first time many of them had seen each other since the days after the 1995 Grey Cup. Star defensive end Elfrid Payton said they "really didn't have closure.

    "Tonight can serve as that," said Payton, who recorded 18 sacks in 1995. "We have an opportunity to get back to a reunion type thing. The sad thing is we don't have everybody."

    Twenty players from the Stallions' short stint in Baltimore made it to the reunion in addition to former coaches, equipment managers and cheerleaders. After the players were introduced before dinner, others in attendance gave them a standing ovation as Queen's "We are the champions" played.
