I have to admit, I think Ray Rice did a great job with his press conference on Thursday. He seemed truly sincere and man that’s learned from his shortcomings.
“My actions that night were totally inexcusable. That night, I’m just (gonna) put it this way, that night I just replay over and over in my head. That’s not me. My actions were inexcusable. That’s something I have to live with the rest of my life,” Rice said.
“The pain I’m talking about living with is that, is waking up every day and my daughter is two years old now, I have a little girl who’s very smart, very intelligent,” Rice said. “And one day she’s gonna know the power of Google. And we have to explain that to her — what happened that night. And I know that’s not who I am as a man.
“That’s not who my mom raised me to be. Anybody knows me and knows me, they know I was raised by a single parent and that was my mother. And sitting here today and replay the things my mom raised me to be. I let her down, I let my wife down, I let my daughter down, I let my wife’s parents down, I let the whole Baltimore community down, and I got my teammates here to support me and I let my teammates down, you know I let so many people down because of 30 seconds of my life that I know I can’t take back.”
While what Rice did was bad, I appreciate his apology and only wish the best for him.
