Even if you don’t care about football or the fact that the Baltimore Ravens won the Superbowl last night, you have to admit this was a moment not to be missed last night. In the midst of all the hoopla over two brothers rivaling one another on the field, a Superbowl win on the line, and Beyonce’s boom kat kat, Ray Rice took the time to spend a few precious seconds with his little daughter, appropriately named Rayven, to toss around a football and show her what her daddy does for a living. Awwwww.
We just can’t get over the cuteness here. Caption this pic and tell us what you think papa Ray and his little one were discussing on the green.
If you’re not into NFL football, Super Bowl parties or even Beyonce for that matter, Sunday’s big game might not be a highlight for you, but the multi-million dollar commercial advertisements might be!
You might have already seen a few ads here or there gearing up for the Super Bowl between the Baltimore Ravens and San Fransisco 49ers and the record-breaking audience it will receive, including Beyonce’s Pepsi ad for her sponsored halftime show, but there are many more to come. From big household names like Toyota to smaller, but well-established products like Mio drinks, we are anticipating some of the biggest Super Bowl commercials ready to premiere this coming Sunday evening. Are you?
In case you didn’t know, there’s a little football game on Sunday, and it’s sort of a big deal. But for those of you who could care less about the teams battling it out on the field — we know some of you are just tuning in for Beyonce’s halftime performance and the commercials — you may be interested in the eye candy this year’s Super Bowl has to offer.
That’s right, there are certainly a good number of gorgeous men on the gridiron. But San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis are more than a little easy on the eyes. Kaepernick has made quite the name for himself among a brilliant class of rookies including Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. And although he’s on the brink of retirement, veteran player Ray Lewis still dominates on the field after an already impressive career.
These two aren’t only entertaining to watch, they’re pretty good looking, too! Not really into football, or not a big fan of either team? Not to worry! There’s no way you won’t enjoy watching two handsome athletes show their stuff on Sunday. In the meantime, check out the swoon-worthy photos of the fellas below — you don’t even have to thank us.

Two guys. One team. A whole lot of sex appeal. And if that wasn’t enough, they’ve led their team to the biggest night for any NFL team: Super Bowl Sunday, aka, the Beyoncé concert with a football game in between (kidding!). Ray Rice is the electric running back for the Ravens, and Ray Lewis is of course the much loved but controversial linebacker (I’m not saying go find and marry the guy, just enjoy his “body” of work) who is hoping his last game in the league will take him out with a bang (and a ring). In honor of all their hard work and the success that they’ve had this season, two of the best looking guys on the Baltimore Ravens team now have our full attention, and we’ll be watching out for them on Sunday. I’m personally not rooting for one team over the other (look, I don’t watch football like that honestly), but I’m just saying…they look pretty good to me. Why not feature them as candy and promote the Super Bowl at the same time? Killing two birds with one stone. Enjoy!

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo wants to use the Super Bowl media frenzy as a platform to sound off on marriage equality and anti-bullying.
In an email to fellow same-sex marriage supporters Brian Ellner and Michael Skolnik (who also serves as political director to hip-hop mogul and philanthropist Russell Simmons), Ayanbadejo asked, “Is there anything I can do for marriage equality or anti-bullying over the next couple of weeks to harness this Super Bowl media?”
Along with his team, the AFC champion will be playing in the Super Bowl on Feb. 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Among those to get word of the email was New York Times columnist Frank Bruni, who reached out to Ayanbadejo.
“On the phone Tuesday afternoon, Ayanbadejo called that missive his “Jerry Maguire email,” referring to the Tom Cruise movie, in which the plot is set in motion when Maguire, played by Cruise, seizes the occasion of a sleepless night to pour his heart and soul into a mission statement,” wrote Bruni.

No, you’re not crazy. You have seen this fine specimen before, because Will Demps has been making waves on and off the football field for years now. From being the ultimate eye candy as LeToya Luckett’s love interest in “Torn,” to making big moves as a former Baltimore Raven, New York Giant and Houston Texan. But since 2009, Demps has been a free agent in the league. And while some people (who won’t be named) would prefer to jump on reality TV or “Dr. Phil,” Demps has decided to get more involved in business, opening his own chain of Wet Willies on the West Coast. The Korean and Puerto Rican hottie is smart, can speak Korean and Spanish, and is HOT! What more could a girl ask for? Check out all the sexiness he has to offer in this slideshow, you won’t be sorry!
