Baltimore's Got Its Own Billboard

Posted Jan 21, 2013

New England was counting down Ray Lewis’ retirement party. That’s been postponed.


New England billboards riled up Baltimore fans – and linebacker Ray Lewis – last week.

Now Baltimore’s got its own billboard following Sunday’s 28-13 AFC championship win.

Last week, a Clear Channel Communications board was counting down the time until Ray Lewis’ retirement party, which coincided with the approximate ending of the AFC championship. A picture of the billboard circled around the web and eventually landed in front of Lewis’ eyes.

I was hurt when I saw a sign that actually said my retirement would [start] tonight,” Lewis said. “Man can’t dictate that. God dictates that.”

After the win, billboards started popping up around Baltimore with a different message:

“Ray’s retirement party moved to Feb. 3 (New England Not Invited).”

Feb. 3, of course, is the date of the Super Bowl. After playing on a week-to-week basis throughout the playoffs, the Super Bowl will be without a doubt Lewis’ 60-minute retirement party.

No word on who is behind the billboards.
