For those of you unaware of Ray Lewis, he is a dominant inside/middle linebacker who plays for the Baltimore Ravens. And today, his team beat Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts. He also announced his retirement this week, as in, after the playoffs, he is done:
So my point in this post is not recount Ray’s great career (2050 tackles, 41.5 sacks, 31 interceptions), but to share this inadvertently ironic blurb from wikipedia: Ray Lewis is a Christian, and his commitment to his faith was featured in a Sports Illustrated cover story in 2006. He has six children by four women. His son, Ray Lewis III, has committed to the University of Miami for the 2013 season. Wikipedia really should consider separating these facts up into two separate paragraphs. Talk about Ray’s religion and then talk about Ray’s children. Seems to make sense to me, no?
