Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis paid a visit to the "Weekend Update" desk this week on "Saturday Night Live" and showed himself to be just as crazed when he's being spoofed as he is when he's being serious in real life.
Lewis (Kenan Thompson) got a little emotional with host Seth Meyers, when discussing his plans for Super Bowl Sunday and why he cried during the National Anthem before last week's AFC Championship Game in Foxborough.
"I never heard that song before," Lewis said.
Lewis was very high-strung on SNL, much like he is on the field. "I'm 37 years old, I've got a torn tricep and I can't get this paint off my face," he said. Lewis said he would not be denied in his quest to reach the studio, despite hitting some road construction. "No road block is going to stop Ray Lewis." If the Ravens win: "I'm going to go to the 50-yard-line of the Superdome, kneel down and them I'm going to ascend into heaven."
Perhaps another reason to root for the 49ers next week?
