Ricky Williams: Meditation = Getting Blazed

The Miami Dolphins had a bye week coming off their triumphant win over the Patriots…and one Fin’s mind quickly turned to the delightful melody of a bubbling bong.

[Ricky] Williams, in the NFL’s substance-abuse program since 2002 and having tested positive four times, said Monday he was briefly tempted to smoke marijuana while the Dolphins had their bye weekend.

Ricky talked to the MIAMI HERALD (via DEADSPIN):

Williams said the extra free time was the primary reason for the temptation.

”Most definitely,” Williams said. ‘It’s greater because, like, Thursday, coach told us we had Friday off, so automatically your mind, which is so constrained since training camp began — every day is a grind, it’s a grind, it’s a grind — and then Coach says `you’re free.’ And the mind says, `I’m free, what can I do?’

“So there was definitely an urge. But I just thought about what I have to lose and it was easy. The urge didn’t last very long.”

Williams said he successfully combated the urge to smoke by meditating instead.

”I’ve done a lot of work at understanding myself a little bit more,” Williams said. “So I recognize [the urge] was just a result of the feeling of being free, and I was just trying to maximize it. And I realize that I really enjoy meditating and when I can go home and sit in my room and meditate, I can get the same feeling.”

We were pretty damn skeptical of this claim. Then we looked up “meditation” on Wikipedia and found this picture!

DUDE that’s like the headiest shit we have ever SEEN!

Time to say no to drugs and start working on our lotus position. Ricky, you’re an inspiration!

Williams said he will not bow to marijuana’s temptation again while he continues to play in the NFL.

”Yeah, I can say that,” he said. “I feel confident saying that. It just doesn’t fit my life right now. It would make life more difficult.”

But Williams realizes he cannot guarantee he will never smoke marijuana again after his career is over.

”I don’t know,” he said. “I’d be lying if I said I’m never going to do it again after I’m done.”

In that case, pass the J.

What?? Don’t look at us like that. It’s not our fault we aren’t flexible.
