I am referring witnessing one of the most motivating displays of pure enthusiasm and passion by an athlete in all of sports for the very last time.
After 17-seasons with the Ravens, yesterday was the last time NFL fans will ever get to see linebacker Ray Lewis do his trademark “squirrel” dance, as the future Hall of Famer will be retiring after the 2013 NFL Playoffs.
Lewis enthused his Ravens to thump the Colts 29-4, and the next stop for Baltimore is Denver to face Peyton Manning and his Broncos in the Mile High City.
I hope the New York Yankees tuned in as I have a feeling the 2013 team could benefit from this following last year’s embarrassing postseason exit.
Without further ado, here is Ray Lewis doing his dance in front of Ravens fans for the very last time:
And to follow-up on my recent post Yankee Universe and Ravens Ray Lewis, here is video I found on NFL.com comparing how Lewis and Yankees Captain Derek Jeter both got injured on the same day last October and the comparison of what both mean to their respective team/sport is pretty neat.
Here is my tweet about this video courtesy of NFL.com, as it was the easiest way to share this on LLP.
