Enough already, Ray Lewis

From Deadspin to his home town paper, the Baltimore Sun, writers are taking their shots at the great Ray Lewis.

Actually, they aren’t shots so much as grenades.

The other day I penned a tongue-in-cheek piece about the top 10 reasons to cheer for the Ravens. One of the reasons I was going to list was Sunday being Lewis’ last game and all, but then I gave my head a shake and thought “Am I nuts?” Lewis is a reason to despise the Ravens.

What is so irksome about Lewis — beyond his involvement in Atlanta 13 years ago when two men died and he skated like O.J. Simpson — is how seriously he takes himself. How he shrouds himself in piety. How he no longer talks like a normal human being, but makes proclamations, utters homilies upon profundities in sanctimonious tones as though he is giving his own Sermon on the Mount.
