Michael Phelps spent some time with his hometown team the Baltimore Ravens to give a little inspiration pep talk while the pre-season is winding down. Ray Lewis got to honor Phelps with a sack. Hopefully this can get them beyond the Playoffs this year.
The last four years has found the Baltimore Ravens reaching the Playoffs, but not getting to their big one so Michael Phelps flew in for a pep talk hoping some of his last four years could rub off. Ray Lewis took a little further on the rubbing off and sacked Phelps in a little fun man play. It seems Phelps had more words of wisdom to share with Ryan Lochte which got passed on to Prince Harry than for the Ravens as he only had three words of encouragement to share.
“Go get em.”
I think just his presence was enough to inspire the team as he won six medals at the 2012 London Olympic Games making him break all time Olympic records for most medals.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “He just talked about the last four years and what it takes to persevere like that, and he said, ‘Go get ‘em.’ .. He had a great message for us, and we appreciate that.”
Harbaugh hopes that seeing some of the humps Phelps has overcome in his career will get his team humping once more. The phenom swimmer is getting read for production to start on his reality show The Haney Project with Hank Haney. He’s about the only one that can make gold exciting for everyone.
