NEW ORLEANS, LA (WUSA) -- Much has been made throughout the playoffs of Ray Lewis and his emotional nature.
On Tuesday at Media Day, Lewis let some people in on why he's been so emotional.
"I know along my journey, a lot of people didn't know that one of my driving forces was my grandmother, who is in the hospital and she is on life support right now," Lewis said. "Every day, she asks me to promise her that I would bring her one more Super Bowl before she went home. Just to be able to give that to her, and I am always emotional any time when I talk to God."
"Just having that conversation with Him is so much different than having a conversation with anyone else," The legendary Linebacker continued. "I do get emotional in times like that when it is at that point."
