Super Bowl Weirdness Or "The Devil and the Deer"

By January 31, 2013

Follow me on:

The Super BowlDeer antlers has evolved into such a mega-colossal, super-duper, bigger-than-life-itself event, that some sort of weirdness is almost always dug up, every year.

This year, it's Ray Lewis, deer antlers and the devil.

Oh, you need that explained, huh? I'll try.

It started, sort of, when Lewis was alleged to have used deer velvet antler spray as a quickie aid in recovering from a torn triceps. Unfortunately, it contains a substance banned by the NFL.

Lewis has spent a couple days denying it, and his latest explanation has some serious biblical dimensions. Or let Ray himself tell it.

"...That's the trick of the devil," Lewis told the media, concerning the allegations. "The trick of the devil is to kill, steal and destroy. That's what he comes to do. He comes to distract you from everything you're trying to do."

If true, El Diablo is doing a pretty good job. Distraction, that is. No evidence of murder, theft or destruction at this Super Bowl.

Yet.
