Karma has made its way through New England this afternoon and the Baltimore fans are having some fun with this. Baltimore fans were riled up all week after seeing New England fans had funded a billboard counting down Ray Lewis‘ retirement party. But after the Ravens defeated New England in the AFC Championship, 28-13, last night, Baltimore fans decided to post their own billboard regarding Ray Lewis’ retirement party this morning. The billboard reads: “Ray’s retirement party moved to Feb. 3 (New England Not Invited).” Feb. 3 is of course the date of Super Bowl XLVII and officially Lewis’ last game. Lewis commented on the billboard following the Ravens-Patriots game. “I was hurt when I saw a sign that actually said my retirement would [start] tonight,” Lewis said, according to The Boston Globe. The ping-pong billboard fight — back and forth all week — between New England and Baltimore fans should be over for now after the Patriots suffered their first ever AFC Championship Game loss at home. This only heats up arguments going into off-season and certainly intensifies this rivalry heading into the 2013 season.
