Ricky Williams Says Weed Was to Him What Spinach Is to Popeye

I'm Ricky the football man, I'm Ricky the football man.

Don't mind us. We're just writing Ricky Williams' new theme song.

Ricky, by the way, is now the part-time running backs coach at the University of Incarnate Word. Hold on -- let us make sure that's a real university. Apparently it is. It's a Catholic school of all types. A Catholic school where he sleeps part time in a dorm room with superhero bedsheets.
