Los Angeles, Atlanta, Tempe/Glendale, AZ, Detroit/Pontiac, MI—2
ESPN.com has a story about featuring Ray Lewis talking his focus being on the San Francisco 49ers and not on retirement. Here is part of that piece:
It wouldn't be surprising if Lewis approached the Super Bowl with a feeling of finality, but the 37-year-old middle linebacker insisted Thursday that he's thinking only about helping the Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers.
"Honestly, outside of putting my head in the playbook and studying San Fran, I really haven't thought about anything else," Lewis said.
"It's going to be a great day, period, no matter what happens. And that's kind of the way I've approached it," he said. "I haven't even said, 'Oh man, this is your last game, what do you think?' I really haven't. Because I just really am keeping my teammates focused on the real prize."
