Super Bowl Sunday is just days away now, and for the first time that I can remember, the main attraction is a defender. Ray Lewis, the Baltimore Ravens star linebacker, has the gravitas to command the attention of every camera, the popping of every light-bulb, and the awe of every eye on the biggest stage in American sports, when he runs out of the tunnel at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome...

The entire football season comes down to this week, and this week can be best summed up by this grainy picture of Baltimore Ravens’ linebacker Ray Lewis and ‘Inside Edition’ reporter Katherine Webb (and some poor, nameless bugger).

Can there be too much of a good thing? It appears so with Ravens LB Ray Lewis's comments this week. Lewis came under fire for his involvement with a PED. instead of answering media questions, he attacked his accuser and the media asking questions about the issue.
I don’t know if you noticed, but I generally avoided discussing all the little storylines associated with the Super Bowl this year.
