The City of Baltimore honored one of the most recognizable faces in the city today. A part of North Avenue and Broadway was named “Ray Lewis Way #52″ to honor one of the most feared linebackers in the history of the football. Most Thanksgivings, the community and the needy can find Ray Lewis handing out food and other items to those less privileged.
Rain caused the event to primarily be held indoors, where Ray Lewis brought some moisture of his own to the party. Joined by head coach, John Harbaugh, and various other city figures no one cares about, an emotional Lewis took the podium and addressed the media as well as the community.
Speaking to the crowd, Lewis said, “If Ray Lewis Way does nothing else, just look up instead of looking down,” “If the street does nothing else but make you look up in life and say he did it differently, let that be the goal.”
So lets crack open a Natty Boh and congratulate Ray Lewis on his street dedication. Hopefully he won’t have too many Boh’s and drive, ultimately causing him to lose his street sign and maybe his license like another Baltimore hero we may know…
