The Caw: Steve Smith Tells Elephant To 'Ice Up, Son!'

Posted May 6, 2014

Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith, Sr. is on a ‘bucket-list trip’ around the world.


Even though he’s just 5-foot-9, 185 pounds, Steve Smith, Sr. will trash talk anybody or anything.

That includes an elephant tipping the scales at somewhere around 10,000 pounds.

The Ravens wide receiver is on a self-described “bucket-list trip” around the world, and went on a safari in Africa last weekend, where he took one of the best selfies I’ve seen in a long while.

Move over Ellen DeGeneres. Elephant selfie > celebrity selfie. (Mobile users click “View In Browser” above)

Smith saw some more animals, including lions and a hippo, at the nearby Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area, and had fun poking fun at some other tourists.

Smith also stopped by Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa. I’m shocked he didn’t hike up it.

Smith wasn’t all that impressed with the Africa bathroom situation and got a real look at impoverished Kenya.

He did seem to enjoy the fooda lot. Before Smith arrived in Africa, he visited Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, where there was a bit more wealth.

As somebody who also has the travel bug, I applaud Smith. He constantly trains hard, and has earned the right to have life experiences before returning to suit up for football.
