Anyone catch Ricky Williams on "60 Minutes" tonight? He didn't come off as very mature, that's for sure. For a guy who's doing all this "cleansing" and stuff, why does he still need marijuana?

Some highlights from the interview:

-If he took a drug test right now, he'd fail- he admitted he still does marijuana.

-He would apologize to the players, fans, etc., if he thought there was something to apologize for.

-He hasn't ruled out playing football in the future because, as he says, he doesn't even know what will happen tomorrow.

-During his hiatus, he was living in a tent community in Australia for $7 a day.

-He always pays child support to his 3 kids and their 3 mothers.

-His hero is Bob Marley (duh).

This is the bit that really bugged me. I mean, I don't know the housing situation in Australia (for whatever part he was in), but $210 per month for a tent? He must've been getting ripped off somehow.

Even if it was the Australian Dollar, it would be alot of money. $210 in Aussie Dollars would still be $160.55 American

Tent Community eh?

We always called them KOAs.

He was high as hell during that interview...and I think was probably pissing Mike Wallace off. Can't hate on the guy for quitting/retiring, but during the interview, wondered what had happened if Doak Walker had still been alive, since he was so close to Doak while he was playing in Texas, even wearing Doak's number when Doak passed away.
