And Corey Wooten's first sack was Brett Favre's last play.

Not that it really matters in this thread, I just like saying "Brett Favre's last play"

They were also team mates in 1998 when Harbaugh was playing quarterback for the Ravens.

For his part, Harbaugh was asked about being Lewis' first victim earlier this month, and he said he didn't find out until recently, when his father told him.

So, no, he didn't remember.

Ray Rice, talking about his first practice as a Raven, said that on his first play, he tried to go side-to-side to get position on the LBs. He said Lewis hit him harder than anyone had ever hit him before. As Lewis helped him up (with a spatula, probably), he offered the following advice: "You NEVER go East-West in this league. You go North-South, or I will hit you harder next time."

I imagine there's a reason Harbaugh doesn't remember.

// also, that was one of 36 times he was sacked in 1996 alone
// did you know? Jim Harbaugh is 18th all-time in number of times sacked, career (361)

Is there any worse period of time sports-wise than the two weeks between the conference championships and the Super Bowl? (except maybe those couple of days during the MLB all-star break where there are -no- major sports going on)

I think it's hilarious that Ray Lewis and his crew stabbed two retards outside the club and got away with it. Now he's a hero because he's a good player and nobody gives two shiats about Timmy Tebow because he sucks. LOL.

given that there never were any, I'm guessing zeo.  Oh you mean the two people that died when they and thier friends attacked Lewis and his friends, the ones who started the fight by chasing them to a limo and breaking a champagne bottle over the head of one of Lewis's party?    The guys  who, as the trial evidence clearly showed, Lewis didn;t even know had been stabbed until later, which might have something to do with  Lewis and Co trying to escape as  another person in that same attacking group, the state's star witness, by the by,  unloading his 9mm at Lewis' limo?

Seriously, if you are too young to remember the trial, at least acquaint yourself with the facts of the case before trying to flaunt your fake moral outrage

'll find you a few cites but it's worth noting that A) most legal observers at the time expected Lewis to be acquitted after the State's case was finished, and many felt that Lewis took the plea for obstruction of justice because there was a feeling that the public and the league would not react well to him getting off scott-free when there were two dead people after the incident, and two Juries DID acquit both of Lewis' associates who were also tried for murder,  seemingly accepting the defendants self-defense argument.

Here's a 2000 story about the trial of his friends

Here's a  timeline of the case with a strong anti-Lewis bias that nonetheless covers the basic details well

and a where are they now type story with a decent summary of the case

Ray Lewis Murder Trial

Following a Super Bowl XXXIV party in Atlanta on January 31, 2000, a fight broke out between Lewis and his companions and another group of people, resulting in the stabbing deaths of Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar. Lewis and two companions, Reginald Oakley and Joseph Sweeting, were questioned by Atlanta police, and 11 days later the three men were indicted on murder and aggravated-assault charges. The white suit Lewis was wearing the night of the killings has never been found. Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard alleged the blood-stained suit was dumped in a garbage bin outside a fast food restaurant.[37]

Lewis' attorneys, Don Samuel and Ed Garland, of the Atlanta law firm Garland, Samuel & Loeb, negotiated a plea agreement with Howard, where the murder charges against Lewis were dismissed in exchange for his testimony against Oakley and Sweeting,[38] and his guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice.[12] Lewis admitted he gave a misleading statement to police on the morning after the killings. Superior Court Judge Alice D. Bonner sentenced Lewis to 12 months' probation, the maximum sentence for a first-time offender,[39] and he was fined $250,000 by the NFL, which was believed to be the highest fine levied against an NFL player for an infraction not involving substance abuse.[40] Under the terms of the sentence, Lewis could not use drugs or alcohol during the duration of the probation.

Oakley and Sweeting were acquitted of the charges in June 2000.[41][42] No other suspects have ever been arrested for the crime.

The following year, Lewis was named Super Bowl XXXV MVP. However, the signature phrase "I'm going to Disney World!" was given instead to quarterback Trent Dilfer.

On April 29, 2004, Lewis reached a settlement with four-year-old India Lollar, born months after the death of her father Richard, pre-empting a scheduled civil proceeding. Lewis also reached an undisclosed settlement with Baker's family.[41]

Sorry boy-o. Not a court of law here so while your objection is noted it is overruled. The facts remain blood was on HIS limo, he admitted he lied to police, and his suit mysteriously disappeared not to mention they went to buy knives the previous night. While his plea deal to testify against his friends led him to not implicate them in the slayings. So excuse me while I voice my total skepticism that Lewis had nothing to do with anything.

I also saw somewhere that the companions that were charged with murder were found "not guilty" by reason of self-defense. Oh yeah, it was in this thread. So, even with Lewis' testimony, the jury "acquitted" the defendants. I'm not sure what "acquitted" means; from this thread I'm guessing it means Ray Lewis committed murder and the Patriots are automatically in the Super Bowl.
