Colts' Wayne irked by Lewis' dance
Not everyone in and around the NFL was impressed with the Ray Lewis lovefest that went on in Baltimore and in TV studios everywhere on Sunday afternoon.
The future Hall of Famer, who announced his pending retirement just days before the Baltimore Ravens hosted the Indianapolis Colts in a wild-card playoff game, was the life of the party on Sunday in Baltimore with No. 52 tributes left and right. His famous “squirrel dance” made an appearance not just once (in its customary pregame introduction), but yet again after the end of the game on the field.
At least one member of the Colts took issue with that, as Lewis’ second squirrel dance seems to have wide receiver Reggie Wayne pretty cheesed off. Jake Query of Indianapolis radio station WNDE tweeted this on Monday afternoon.
