Has there ever been a better role model than Ricky Williams, now of the Toronto Argonauts? He gave stoners everywhere a reason to be proud.
If there was a national stoner flag they’d be waving it right now, but only for a little while, because it takes a lot of effort to wave a flag.
The man gave up millions of dollars in the NFL just so he could play for a league that didn’t have a drug testing policy.
Thanks, Ricky! It’s nice to know that money isn’t the only thing that professional athletes think about. They also like the reefer.
He’s a true American, things weren’t going the way he liked it, so he went and did his own thing in a different country-eh- Okay maybe a bad example, but Ricky essentially said “Don’t Tread on Me and please pass the Doritos” to the National Football League.
Really, it boggles me, how a man can be a professional athlete, be awesome at what he does and then throw it all away to go watch Cheech and Chong movies in the “Irrevelant Capital of the World,” Canada.
He’s pretty much saying that he doesn’t care that much about playing in the NFL.
How many people would give their right arm to be playing in that league right now?
I mean, would you see Tiger Woods quit golf to fufill his life-long hobby of gardening or Kobe Bryant walk away from the NBA to focus on his scowling ability? No!
They have way too much tied up emotionally and financially in their respective sports.
Ricky? Ah, whatever. He cares about his professional football career just about as much as George W. Bush cares about grammar.
I wonder how the Toronto Argonauts must feel; are they happy that he is on the team?
I mean he’s essentially using them so he can use an illegal drug. That has to be a very awkward locker room right now.
Most of his teammates are obviously still trying to keep the dream of playing in the NFL someday, hoping that some franchise will take a look at them, and then he will come bouncing out of the shower with a whole lot of smoke billowing out behind him.
The conversation while signing Ricky must have gone something like this.
GM: “So you just thought you’d have a better opportunity to showcase your talents in the CFL rather than the NFL, eh Ricky?”
GM: “Alright, you’re signed.”
And instead of a tricked out Escalade, has he downgraded to a Subaru sedan? Instead of living in a mansion does he now reside in his parents’ basement?
And why isn’t Keanu Reeves involved in any of this mess at all? How can he live on just $200,000 a year?
Big questions that can only be answered by a big man, or a man that’s just really high. Thank you Ricky, you’ve just become the laughing stock of professional sports.
