Assuming you’ve been pinned under something heavy for the past month, you probably hadn’t heard that Ravens LB Ray Lewis is retiring after 17 years in the NFL. And after yesterday’s victory over the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII, Lewis is going out in the best way imaginable, with a second Super Bowl championship under his belt. Today, Lewis tweeted this photo of himself admiring the newly acquired Lombardi Trophy on the team flight home from New Orleans, along with the following message: “My last ride.. Up in the clouds… This feeling is so real. We coming home with the crown Baltimore.” (via @raylewis) Regardless of the off-field controversy that seems to endlessly surround Lewis, you can’t deny his greatness as a linebacker, and his impact on the game during his career. Am I nuts, or does it look like Lewis is flying coach here? Seems a little odd for the world champs to be slumming it in coach, no?

Baltimore Cop Does Ray Lewis Squirrel Dance

Right after the Baltimore Ravens won the Super Bowl, a fan captured a female cop outside of an unnamed bar doing Ray Lewis’ famous “squirrel dance.” It’s a pretty weak version of the dance, but we’ll give her an A for effort.

Ray Lewis III part of Miami's signing class

For Ray Lewis III, going to Miami has been a safe assumption since the day he was born. His father - the newly retired Baltimore Ravens star linebacker Ray Lewis - played for the Hurricanes. His mother is a Miami graduate as well. So when it came time for their son to pick a school, the decision was easy. Lewis III was one of 10 players to send letters of intent back to Miami on...

Ravens' journey ends on top

The journey couldn't have ended any better for a team that embraced storied linebacker Ray Lewis and his "last ride" into retirement -- even if it took the Baltimore Ravens an extra 34 minutes to get there because of an in-game power outage at the Superdome. The 49ers mounted a furious comeback when the stadium lights came back on early in the third quarter, but the...

Ravens won't be distracted from task

When the Baltimore Ravens arrived in New Orleans on Monday night, they more than likely expected the culmination of the month-long Ray Lewis Farewell Tour that the media had been throwing him since the start of the postseason.
