Good story, IMO.

Sounds like he has his head on straight, good priorities. And maybe has for several years now.

Ricky Williams digging life, post-”graduation” from football

If you thought Ricky Williams might be missing football, think again.

The former Saints, Dolphins and Ravens running back, now a retired free spirit, said his job of the previous 13 year never appealed to him. Of course, that’s why there were absences in those 13 years as well.

Heh. He was always a hippie. Didn't belong in football.

Was damn good carrying the rock though. And tough as hell.

I thought this comment in the article was interesting.

It’s easy to dismiss Williams as a flake or a marijuana-smoking hippie, but it’s also an gross oversimplification. Williams battled social anxiety disorder for years, which led to the interview-in-helmet phase.

What's wrong with being a hippie?

He should have joined the "Doobie Brothers"!
He'd fit right in!

Haven't we been through this enough? It usually ends up that one of you old bastards gets mad at me for a couple weeks. Stick it to the man, Wade.

I have nothing against Ricky Williams indulging in the herb while he played. It seems like it helped him, as it does many people.
