After decisively beating the New England Patriots 28-13 last week to win the AFC Championship Game, the Baltimore Ravens are now ready to take on the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans on February 3rd. However, before they pose with the iconic Lombardi Trophy, the Ravens want to make sure that they have actually won the Super Bowl. Earlier this week a television crew brought a Lombardi Trophy to the Baltimore Ravens headquarters in order to shoot some pregame coverage footage of various Ravens players posing with the famous trophy. However, star Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis wouldn't pose or touch the trophy and even insisted that it be removed from their team headquarters. Although Lewis isn't superstitious, he said he does believe in earning the right to touch the Lombardi Trophy. "I told my team, 'Don't ever take pictures with nothing that's not yours, nothing that you haven't earned,'" said the 13-time Pro Bowler.

Reportedly the other Ravens players followed Ray Lewis' advice and avoided touching or posing with the Lombardi Trophy. The other Baltimore Ravens players might have followed Lewis' advice out of respect for him as a team leader or perhaps they just know that Ray Lewis knows what he is talking about. Lewis is the only current Baltimore Ravens player to possess a Super Bowl ring, although fellow LB Brendon Ayanbadejo, WR Anquan Boldin, and safety James Ihedigbo have all been to the big game once before.
