Super Bowl XLVII is the wrangle of the best from the American Football Conference (AFC), Baltimore Ravens and the National Football Conference (NFC), San Francisco 49ers. This year’s Super Bowl will also match two brothers for the bragging rights for the rest of the year. Baltimore Ravens, Head Coach John Harbaugh and San Francisco 49ers Head Coach, Jim Harbaugh. John and Jim welcome the sibling rivalry and may the best man win, but in this case, may the best team win. Go Ravens and Go 49ers.
For one Ravens player, this will be the final time that he will suit up in a football uniform. Lewis is retiring after this game. Ray Lewis is known for his superstar and persistent play as linebacker on the field. For many Atlantans, Ray Lewis is also known for his off the field legal issues that took place in Atlanta, Georgia. Lewis became a household name from his implication in a January 31, 2000, fight along with two men in his entourage and another group of people. Two men lost their lives, they were brutally stabbed outside of a lounge in Buckhead. The fight resulted in an indictment on murder and aggravated assault charges.
Lewis in a plea agreement pled guilty to obstruction of justice in exchange for testimony against two other defendants. Since that time, Ray Lewis has moved on with his life to repair the damage that situation caused to his reputation and professional career. For many Atlantans, they have forgiven, but they have not forgotten.
