Ricky Williams made a good decision?
Yeah, I'm still trying to wrap my head around that one. But Ricky Willams apparently turned down an invitation to join Cedric Benson on his now infamous booze cruise in Lake Travis, Texas earlier in the month, the same one where Benson was charged with boating while intoxicated and resisting arrest.
I'm still checking into it, but this seems have been the first ever good decision in Williams' life.
Williams also says things might have ended differently had he been on board, stating that he has "a calming influence on people he's around." Um, Ricky? That's because you hang around potheads. They're always calm and relaxed. He also said that "as a high level athlete, it's just something that's ingrained in me... I can't say how." Again, Ricky, it's the weed. And you're not high level, just high.
Former NFL player Earl Campbell - an ex-Texas Longhorn, like both Benson and Williams - also felt the need to chime in. His statement: "Right now, everyone remembers Cedric Benson by what happened on the lake. Nobody remembers what a great football player he is."
It's clear that Campbell remembers the wrong Cedric Benson, though, because the Bear's RB is far from great. He must've been smoking whatever Ricky was.
