Glad You Asked: Weekend Edition



Dear GYA, I don't understand why people don't like Raven's linebacker Ray Lewis. Seriously, I don't mind that he got away with killing a guy back in 2000 or that he snorts a bunch of Adderal before every game. Fans need people like him to keep the NFL interesting. Think about it: If Ray Lewis were a Venn diagram, he'd have Metta World Peace on one side and Mike Tyson on the other.--- Anything happening this weekend while we wait for Ray Lewis to do something bat-shit crazy? - Jimmy Barkolorni, Park City
