When the Pope released one of his “peace doves” from his Papal window to the crowd below, everyone was horrified to find an attacking seagull try to take down the bird of peace.
When Ray Lewis tried to convince everyone of his piety, the media raised hackles by suggesting that Lewis had been used banned substances to play this season.
Yes, the man who led a team of injured players out onto the field to beat the New England Patriots may be a friend of Alex Rodriguez.
Holy Roller Ray Lewis has appeared on sports magazine covers with his hands in a praying pose, apparently to show he is not beating his many non-wives.
Wes Welker’s wife made a public tweet, sniping at Lewis for having four common law wives and six children. Holy Ray of Sunshine forgave her.
Lewis seems to have most of the media on his side, mostly because he will likely have a job on one of those pregame desks next season. There he can let his mouth run off like a modern day preacher of the gospel of hypocrisy.
Murder will out, unless your question undermines the fine character of a man convicted of obstructing justice. Defenders of Ray Lewis insist this is old news, though the idea of unsolved murder means that the statute of limitations does not apply.
Rumors circulate that there is a tape of Lewis in flagrante delicto, calling out: “Klaatu, barada nicto.”
That means murder, unlike deer antler spray, can be investigated until solved, not quite like using a banned substance among our sports heroes who are allowed to get away with murder.
