The Bills and Dolphins square off in Toronto this Sunday, and Ricky Williams is definitely looking forward to a return. He played one year for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League, and, apparently, really enjoyed himself.
Williams enjoyed the five-hour work days of the CFL, versus the more rigorous 8-9 hour NFL days. He truly loved living with his family in downtown Toronto, within walking distance of his favorite Tai restaurant, yoga studio and homeopathic store.
Well, no one ever accused Ricky of committing himself to being the best football player he could be, so this is hardly shocking. Of course, there are plenty of other things to do in Miami than just play football. Could the shorter work day really be that important? Actually, I'm sure it was, but there's more.
"In America I think people sometimes you're frowned at when you try to be an individual and be yourself,'' Williams said.
I take exception to that, actually.
