Hippie former football star back on field

Say hello once again to our old friend, Ricky Williams. He is back with the Dolphins preparing for the NFL season. His season, though, won’t start until he sits out his four game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Check out this brief, yet entertaining take from his press conference yesterday. Ricky has no interest in joining the military (no shocker there), has no reason to shave (I’m envious), doesn’t miss weed (I’m not buying it) and isn’t having fun playing football but doesn’t mind (look out). If Ricky isn’t happy, don’t be surprised to see him walk away from the game without notice some time during the long NFL season. His body has always had immense talent, but unfortunately his head sometimes gets in the way. I sincerely hope he makes it this time.

I love Ricky, now more than ever. He's his own person, for better or worse. I destest phony pro athletes and one thing about Ricky is he is not phony.

I hope he uses those four off weeks to get into decent shape so he can actually make an impact as a player this season.

And if we're being honest, I think all of us envy him in a way for being able to tell everyone, "I'm outta here," take a year-long vacation and then return like nothing happened.

Can't tell you how many times I thought about how great it would be to just walk away for a while.
