Lacking Loyalty In The Game?
Wes Welker may want to consider checking his wife. Know why? Because even though NFL great Ray Lewis may have helped to pave the field way for the New England Patriots wide receiver, his wife recently took to Facebook to trash the Hall Of Famer. This just days before the men are set to take to the field for Super Bowl XLVII.
Here’s what the oh so ‘accomplished’ Burns Welker – Miss Hooters International 2005 – had to say about Ray Lewis:
”Proud of my husband and the Pats. By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis’ Wikipedia page. 6 kids 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay! What a hall of fame player! A true role model!”
In response, Lewis told the Post:
“I’ve always been a firm believer of the Good Book, and the Good Book always confirms, even a fool is counted wise until he opens he or she mouth.
And sometimes people just say silly stuff. And they say it out of emotion.
And sometimes you need to let the game take care of the game.
We lost up there last year, and I didn’t hear one teammate say anything about nobody there because we have respect for that team, that they won it fair and square.
So for her to come out and say what she said, listen, I truly forgive her, and I have no hard feelings against her at all, but I believe people just make mistakes and say foolish things sometimes.”
Was Burns Welker comments about Ray Lewis fueled by racism? I don’t think so, but some people do. Don’t believe me.. Ask Professor Eric Michael Dyson.
