Since Ray Lewis told his team, the NFL, and anyone who would listen that he would retire after this season it seems that he has been followed by reporters everywhere he goes. After each playoff game cameras follow his move to see what he will do as his swan song comes closer to an end. Whether he is quoting Bible verses or kissing the field we get a firsthand look at Ray at his pre and post game rituals. There are times where is emotion may seem over the top to some and Saturday Night Live took notice and had a sketch about Ray Lewis last night. During the Weekend Update segment with Seth Meyers, actor Kenan Thompson donned a Ray Lewis jersey and told Seth what he would do if the Ravens beat the 49ers and that New York City cops can’t get in the way of his destiny. Thompson did a great job impersonating Lewis and he even put on the war paint Lewis wears for each game. If you did not see the sketch last night here you go! Enjoy. I love what Lewis…er I mean what Thompson said would happen on the field if the Ravens are victorious. And yes Thompson does do the squirrel dance.
