Out on the campaign trail, Ray Lewis predicted terrible things if the NFL season were to be lost.  The veteran Raven thinks hell will break loose, that people will be looting in the streets, throwing molotov cocktails at eachother…

I should’ve gone with a 5/21/2011 end of the world joke there…

In all seriousness though, the Ravens linebacker spoke with ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio about how he believes crime will ensue among fans should the season be shut down.

“Do this research if we don’t have a season — watch how much evil, which we call crime, watch how much crime picks up, if you take away our game,” Lewis told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio.

That’s because, Lewis said, the NFL lockout affects “way more than us” — the owners and the players.

“There’s too many people that live through us, people live through us,” he said. “Yeah, walk in the streets, the way I walk the streets, and I’m not talking about the people you see all the time.”

When asked why he thought crime would increase if the NFL doesn’t play games this year, Lewis said: “There’s nothing else to do Sal.”

Speak for yourself Ray. I’ll be watching hockey.

Is this Ray’s way of saying he’ll be committing a crime if there’s no football?
