Shutdown Corner

Ray Rice fell off Ravens’ parade float, then stood back up and said, ‘let’s party’

Shutdown Corner

Baltimore Ravens' running back Ray Rice was sure-footed enough to run for 1,143 yards during the 2012 season, and 306 more in the post-season. He was a big reason why the Ravens won the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, he was not sure-footed enough to stay on a float during the victory parade.

He told CBS New York the story:

“Hey I’ve gotta tell you a funny story,” he said. “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.”

Rice went on to say that he fell into a push-up position, stood back up and said, "let's party."

Rice's durability is one of the reasons he has been successful. He hasn't missed a game since becoming a starter. Perhaps it's because when he gets hit, he catches himself, gets back to his feet and says, "let's party."
