Back in college, we used to have this crazy religious guy who would show up about once a week with his faded baseball hat, his stubble and stained teeth, his coffee and bourbon breath, dressed in his dirty brown khakis and stringy overcoat. He would hang out in front of the dining hall, getting into peoples’ faces and screaming at them about God and how we were all a bunch of sinners and what not. The man was pretty much completely insane, waving around the Good Book and sullying its name with every word that he uttered.
Why am I bringing him up you may ask? Because I’m pretty sure that Ray Lewis has turned into that guy.
Let’s look at some of Ray’s responses from media day, and you will see that it is hard to discern his answers from that of a raving lunatic.
When asked about his alleged PED use: “That’s the trick of the devil. The trick of the devil is to kill, steal and destroy. That’s what he comes to do. He comes to distract you from everything you’re trying to do.”
When asked about his role in a 2000 incident that left two men dead: “Nobody here is really qualified to ask those questions. I just truly feel that this is God’s time, and whatever his time is, you know, let it be his will. Don’t try to please everybody with your words, try to make everybody’s story sound right.”
So there you have it. Just remember when you see Lewis dancing like an idiot on Sunday, he will be outside of a college dining hall in about 30 years, yelling at your kids and waving the good book in their face.
