Baltimore’s Triumph over New England Capped by Snarky Billboard

Share the News


To be fair, New England started it. In anticipation of the AFC Championship game on Sunday, Clear Channel Outdoors Boston placed “several feature billboards in the Boston area” with a clock counting down to “Ray’s retirement party,” which — optimistically — was set to commence at the close of the Ravens-Patriots game.

Unfortunately for New England, Ray Lewis had 14 tackles in that game, and the Ravens ended up clobbering the Patriots, 28-13. But some as-yet-unknown entity in Baltimore wouldn’t let the billboard — which Ray Lewis said “hurt” him when he saw it — go unanswered.

Yesterday, a billboard went up outside M&T Bank stadium that reads, “Ray’s Retirement Party MOVED TO FEB. 3 (New England Not Invited).” As snarky billboards go, it’s pretty classy.
