Ray Lewis does not have rabies

Recently Retired Ravens Linebacker Ray Lewis will be joining ESPN as an NFL analyst this fall, but he’s already begun another potentially lucrative career as a motivational speaker.

Lewis spoke to the Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship Church in Dallas about the need for fathers to take greater responsibility in raising children.

“I don’t care how good a mom is, how awesome she is, how spiritual she is,” Lewis said. “She can never teach a man to be a man.”

In case you can’t imagine that sentence delivered with Lewis’s trademark intensity, check out this video of one of his classic “epic locker room speeches,” in which he turns a disappointing AFC Championship Game loss to the Patriots into tear-inducing manifesto.
