Michael Phelps was in attendance for the Super Bowl in New Orleans and sharing in on the celebration. After the game, Yahoo! got video of Phelps and Lewis sharing an emotional moment with each other. Phelps is from Baltimore and a huge Lewis fan. He had this to say about Lewis:
“Because of Ray Lewis and what he’s meant to me and my career. Being able to help me come back. I know how bad he wanted this. To be able to watch him come back [from the torn triceps] and overcome the struggle that he has, to bring it back to Baltimore, there’s nothing better.
“He was probably the single reason I came back for four more years,’ Phelps said. “A lot of people don’t know that, but things that he has said to me, I can never thank him enough.”
