“Proud of my husband and the Pats. By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis’ Wikipedia page. 6 kids 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay. What a hall of fame player! A true role model!”
You can understand why Mrs. Welker would be so frustrated; she’s not the only one conflicted about the praise being lavished on the controversial (and, over her husband’s team, victorious) Ray Lewis. Alas, there will be much more to deal with before the game is over.
‘Emotional and irrational’
Later, Anna Welker apologized, saying in a statement:
“I’m deeply sorry for my recent post on Facebook. I let the competitiveness of the game and the comments people were making about a team I dearly love get the best of me. My actions were emotional and irrational and I sincerely apologize to Ray Lewis and anyone affected by my comment after yesterday’s game.
“It is such an accomplishment for any team to make it to the NFL playoffs, and the momentary frustration I felt should not overshadow the accomplishments of both of these amazing teams.”
Well, some scathing words Anna Welker published on Facebook! But which side are you on — Team Welker or Team Lewis?
