The fine folks at Saturday Night Live decided to take advantage of the last episode leading up to the Super Bowl.
SNL star Kenan Thompson portrayed Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis in this 3-minute clip from late Saturday.
Thompson joined Seth Meyers in the Weekend Update portion of the broadcast and came fully equipped with face-paint, a No. 52 Ravens jersey, and of course, a lot of emotional speech.
The best part of the interview is when Lewis, err I mean Thompson, says he plans to kneel down at the 50-yard line at the Superdome and ascend into heaven if the Ravens win the Super Bowl.
Wouldn't that be a sight to see?
This will be the final game of Lewis' colorful and somewhat controversial career. He publicly announced before the playoffs his plans to retire at the end of Baltimore's season.
