Ive always been told that I%u2019m too small, I%u2019m not big enough, I%u2019m not fast enough, I don%u2019t have what it takes.

To be the best and stay there, sweat is necessary.

Walter and Jerry had their hills, never being comfortable, with just good enough.

-Its right now or never, its right now or never-

I prepare so no one can take what is mine, no one can replace my mind, my heart

Lombardi inspired me, and now our biggest prize, bares his name.

I%u2019m older, of course I%u2019m older, that%u2019s the beauty of it.

16 years plus, different level of wisdom, different level of understanding, different level of punishment.

I wanna live LOOONG after my records have fallen, long after my rings have tarnished.

And whatever you got to do, to make sure you chase your legacy every second of your life.

Will you be remembered, how would you be remembered, why wouldn%u2019t u fight for the greatest achievement ever?

Leave%u2026Your%u2026Mark%u2026

I am so ready to be at the stadium. I believed it when Ray said he would not play past 38. 2 years ago.

[i]"To be part of Ray Lewis' career in my 11 years here with him, it's been amazing. I'm nothing without the D-line and the linebackers. [u][b]Without Ray, my career probably is not the same.[/b][/u]"[/i]

^ powerful statement Reed! much respect to you brah!

I cannot say how excited I am to be at the Stadium, its something that you will have to soak up once the Ravens go out on that field, its another breath of fresh air to claim what we DESERVE for the past 5 years now, no other team is more hungry than us for the Lombardi trophy and with Ray Lewis coming out of the tunnel possibly for the last time Baltimore will ever see him come out and play again will be phenomenal, I have seen Ray play in person plenty of times, but at age 20 i've never been so excited to watch a legendary athlete begin a journey for his last season...always wanted see Michael Jordan play before, but it never happened and I did everything that I could to get to this game, i'll be in section 541 screaming at the top of my lungs when Ray comes out, possibly a tear may fall, possibly lol but Ray is definitely someone who has inspired me since 2000 and I have always looked up to him being a great leader for the city of Baltimore... cannot wait to tell my children in the long near future about going to Ray Lewis's last game and my FIRST playoff game....Happy Purple Friday Ravensnation !!!!! Lets get our Super Bowl Trophy

I was born and raised in Baltimore. I moved to Missouri when I was 17 with me family. It was 1996 and my first month in Missouri I found out a month after moving that Baltimore got the Ravens Franchise. I have been a Ravens fan ever since. I've never had the pleasure of watching a Ravens game at M&T Bank Stadium, however I am making the flight to Baltimore this weekend for Ray Lewis' last performance at home.

GO RAVENS!

i move to the united state in 1997 from el salvador a small country in central america, i did not know anything about american football, on 1997 I remember watching the Broncos win the Super Bowl, so the following season i started watching football and for what ever reason start watching the Baltimore Ravens and the ONE player the caught my attention was #52, the point im trying to make is that thanks to ray lewis i started watching foootball and baltimore ravens became my team, and it really make me sad seen RAY ritiring , but proud to say i have seen him play for all this years. like my username said RAVENSXVIDA translate RAVENS4LIFE! THANK YOU RAY #52

What a great legacy! Ozzie Newsome has built a great organization and that's why I began rooting for the Ravens and bleeding purple! The philosophy and performance over the years has been great and I expect that it will continue when Ray Lewis and Ed Reed depart. Do this post run right with aggressive Ravens football and exacting execution in all areas!! GO Ravens!!!!

Ray Lewis deserves a story book ending and he will get it. Ray Lewis always gave 110%. And we ravens fans are blessed to have had him here for 17 years.

Ray deserves the loudest cheers on Sunday when he comes through that tunnel! Whether you are at M&T or watching from the TV he deserves that roar! He gave Baltimore a defense that gave us a ring, gave this team an identity, and gave us input on being a better person! Ray matured as a Raven and so did I as a fan!
