After watching her husband's team lose the AFC Championship game, Anna Burns Welker, wife of Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker, decided that it would be a good idea to comment on the game via her Facebook page. Anna Welker began her message by offering support to her husband and his team, which is a nice thing to do. She ended her message by making personal attacks against Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, which is not a nice thing to do.
Proud of my husband and the Pats. By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis' Wikipedia page. 6 kids 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay. What a hall of fame player! A true role model!
The post has since been deleted, but thanks to The Big Lead, a blurry screencap survives:
By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to YouTube and search "Wes Welker dropped pass."
Update: Anna Burns Welker has apologized, via a statement sent to Larry Brown Sports:
I'm deeply sorry for my recent post on Facebook. I let the competitiveness of the game and the comments people were making about a team I dearly love get the best of me. My actions were emotional and irrational and I sincerely apologize to Ray Lewis and anyone affected by my comment after yesterday's game.
It is such an accomplishment for any team to make it to the NFL playoffs, and the momentary frustration I felt should not overshadow the accomplishments of both of these amazing teams.
