It's a good thing I don't have a valid passport, I'd be booking tickets and flights about now.
LT might have struck fear into QB's, but Ray Lewis struck fear into any player that touched the ball and influenced the whole field, not to mention his leadership. From a games aspect Ray disrupted the entire field LT wreaked havoc when OT's still played with their hands on the ground. Go vote for Ray at the bottom of the espn page.*http://espn.go.com/
Knew it was coming and it is indeed time for him to move on, but it definitely sucks to finally hear him say it. Just thinking about how a few weeks ago my dad and I were considering not picking up the playoff tickets because money has been tight. Those tickets are now priceless. It will be quite the experience to be there Sunday, to say the least.
Deion is going on record saying that Ray Lewis will re-assess in the offseason and IF Ray feels Ravens are close to SB, would likely come back, ala Brett Favre.
In my opinion, Deion Sanders always claims he "knows" Ray and the Ravens...but is usually VERY far form the truth.
Somewhat like a close relative with a terminal illness - you know the end is coming, but you keep hoping against hope that the end never comes.
Thanks for the memories Ray. Here is hoping you end up holding the Lombardi again!
Make sure we appreciate his last game. 20 years from we will talk of him as the savior of Baltimore football, like a folk hero.
I thought I was a Ravens fan. I mean, I have the PSLs, go to all of the games, and spend a lot of my disposable income being a Ravens fan. But when Ray Lewis walks out of that tunnel on Sunday I will be a Ray Lewis fan first and foremost. What a phenomenal player who has led us to victory so many times that most of us can't even count them. There is no doubt in my mind that he will lead us once again to victory against the team from Indy.
'God is calling,'' the 37-year-old Lewis said. ''My children have made the ultimate sacrifice for their father for 17 years. I don't want to see them do that no more. I've done what I wanted to do in this business, and now it's my turn to give them something back.
Would rather he leave out his "calling by God" to now be a father to his 6 children from 4 different woman and just let us celebrate what he was as a player on the field.
Probably an unpopular thing to say and his personal life is none of my business, but just irritates me when he makes everything out to be so inspired by God
Lets leave out the religious stuff from the main football area, folks.
If you wish to discuss that side of the coin regarding Ray, feel free to do so in the Politics / Off Topic area of the forum.
I don't buy Deion's bs. Ray has said that what he says he's done that he's done and not pulling a favre.
