Thank the Lord (no weapon) that Dick Vermeil wasn’t the coach of the Ravens, they would have run out of tissue for all the tears. Part tears of joy and part tears for the camera, but regardless of what you think of Ray Lewis personally he went out on top.
That is all you can hope for as an elite athlete. Ray Lewis was blessed with a long productive (controversial at times) career that ended with a ring.
That is something to cry about it.
