About a week and a half ago, Wes Welker's wife, Anna Burns Welker, made some ill-advised comments about Ray Lewis after his Baltimore Ravens defeated her husband's New England Patriots team to advance to this week's Super Bowl.
"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," she wrote on her Facebook wall the night of the loss.
She has since apologized and Ray showed he had moved past it when he spoke publicly about it for the first time yesterday.
"I've always been a firm believer of the Good Book, and the Good Book always confirms, even a fool is counted wise until he opens he or she mouth," Ray said. "And sometimes people just say silly stuff. And they say it out of emotion. And sometimes you need to let the game take care of the game. We lost up there last year, and I didn't hear one teammate say anything about nobody there because we have respect for that team, that they won it fair and square. So for her to come out and say what she said, listen, I truly forgive her, and I have no hard feelings against her at all, but I believe people just make mistakes and say foolish things sometimes."
