The Baltimore Ravens held their championship parade yesterday. Despite the presence of many armored personnel carriers and pyrotechnic displays, nothing all that noteworthy happened. At least that's what we thought until today, when we learned that running back Ray Rice fell off his parade float while glad-handing with some nearby fans. Here's how Rice described the incident on the Boomer and Carton show:
You know, the float stopped short and I fell off of it, but I caught myself. I'm good though. I'm telling y'all that because y'all are my boys. Ray Rice has no injuries. I fell off the float, but I'm good.
I caught myself in the pushup position, got back up and said, "Let's party."
What a wonderful use of third person. Also, from now on I'm going to shout, "Let's party!" after every moment of personal clumsiness.
