When the Baltimore Ravens face the New Orleans Saints tonight on Monday Night Football (8:15 p.m., ESPN), one of the happiest people in the building will be ESPN analyst Ray Lewis, who is returning to the Mercedes Benz Superdome, site of arguably the greatest accomplishment of his Hall of Fame career.
In February 2013, Lewis helped lead the Ravens to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. The win secured Lewis a second Super Bowl championship and provided the perfect ending to his 17 NFL seasons. After hoisting the Lombardi Trophy, he walked away from the game – an accomplishment few players get to experience.
In anticipation of returning to the Superdome to see his former team play in tonight’s game, Lewis speaks with Front Row about the experience of playing in that final game and discusses what he has seen in this year’s Ravens team. He also talks about recently joining Twitter and how he plans to use the social media platform.

1. College GameDay heads to the Iron Bowl next week. Will senior coordinating producer Lee Fitting get another sign? (He previously was posterized in Fargo.)

Night game, Gameday….again, Class of 2015’s last home game. Could the Iron Bowl be set up any better?

Seeing all the #HarvardYale coverage on ESPN is awesome. My grandfather was a city worker in Cambridge & did the landscaping at the stadium

3. Safe to say, Danny Kanell is feeling pretty good about his Seminoles.

I think I just saw @BrittMcHenry on SportsCenter, but it could have been an Eskimo, not really sure.

8. Anchors are fans too, remember.
Tough one for @UMassHockey down 6-1 to Vermont after 2. But music good at Mullins. Just heard “Your Love” by The Outfield. Always good.
