Best Bad Businessman
Published: September 18, 2013
Everyone on planet earth knows who Ray Lewis is. A legend in the world of professional football, two-time Super Bowl guy and all that. But do you remember Ray Lewis’ Full Moon BBQ in Canton? Probably not—it wasn’t open for long. How about MVP Lanes in Hunt Valley? In 2009 there was a groundbreaking ceremony with press coverage for the proposed bowling and sports-entertainment destination that was going to employ over 100 people. Six months later it was boarded up and left for dead amid tales of unpaid contractors and 1.1 million dollars owed to this guy and that guy. Lewis is probably among the best defensive players ever in the NFL, but he’s definitely one of the worst businessmen in Baltimore.
