Ray Lewis Is A Prophet

Ray Lewis has proclaimed himself God's linebacker. I have always found that a little bit funny considering he held out evidence on a murder until he was threatened with prosecution, but whatever floats his boat. Now he has taken to prophesying what will happen in America if there is no football:

"Do this research if we don't have a season -- watch how much evil, which we call crime, watch how much crime picks up, if you take away our game," Lewis told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio.

That's because, Lewis said, the NFL lockout affects "way more than us" -- the owners and the players.

"There's too many people that live through us, people live through us," he said. "Yeah, walk in the streets, the way I walk the streets, and I'm not talking about the people you see all the time."

When asked why he thought crime would increase if the NFL doesn't play games this year, Lewis said: "There's nothing else to do Sal."

I don't know about you, but I agree. What else are you going to do on a Sunday afternoon in the fall if there is no football besides commit a crime?
