Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice wasn’t able to avoid falling off of a float due to an abrupt stop during the Super Bowl parade. 

Who was driving this float anyway?  Dude, eyes on the road, man.  Even if you’re just going two miles an hour, you can hurl people off the back of a flatbed if you slam on the brakes.  Was the driver texting while driving or looking at hotties in the crowd?  Hmm, the hottie theory might actually be the correct explanation.

Whatever the reason for the abrupt stop, Ray Rice went soaring through the air.  Fortunately, he wasn’t banged up.  This is so Ravens-like, isn’t it?  It’s like head coach John Harbaugh said after the Ravens beat the 49ers 34-31 in Super Bowl XLVII, “It wasn’t pretty, but it was us.”  That basically sums up the parade also.  Good stuff.
