Wes Welker’s wife rants about Ray Lewis

Continue reading below

Not everyone is thrilled that Baltimore is going to the Super Bowl. The day after Ravens QB Joe Flacco outplayed flaccid Pats QB Tom Brady, wide receiver Wes Welker’s wife, Anna Burns Welker , posted a nasty note about Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis on her Facebook page. “Proud of my husband and the Pats. By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis’s Wikipedia page,” wrote the former Miss Hooters International. “6 kids 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay. What a hall of fame player! A true role model!” (Welker’s wife was referring to a January 2000 bar fight in which two men were stabbed to death. Lewis and two others were indicted for murder, but the charge against Lewis was dropped and he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice.) Later Monday, however, Welker was regretting her online rant and posted an apology on Facebook. “I apologize to Ray Lewis and his family for my comments. In no way did I mean for them to be mean or hurtful,” she wrote. “I’m embarrassed for being a sore loser. I wish Ray and the Ravens good luck. Lesson learned!” We’ll still be rooting for the 49ers on Super Bowl Sunday.
