Get that man a barber

Ricky Williams, who is apparently campaigning for the role of uncle Jesse in The Dukes of Hazard movie, has done an interview with that pillar of journalistic integrity, "60 Minutes". In said interview, he claims that he would apologize to is teammates if he understood why he would be apologizing. He doesn't see a reason to.

[insert Lewis Black's stunned noise that he makes, as there is no emoticon that does it full justice]

But he'll do it if someone asks him to.

He says it won't mean anything if he doesn't understand why he'd be doing it.

[insert noise again]

We knew that Ricky was a bit off-kilter. When he first came into the league, he would do after practice and game interviews—without taking off his helmet! Then some yokels gave him some medication, which while he was seemingly no longer so shy, I doubt it really improved his mental state.

But is his cognitive function really so low that he cannot understand the magnitude of what he did? Doesn't he know that the beard makes him look like the black Ted Kaczynski? I guess not. Mary Jane mixed with psychiatric drugs is probably not such a good idea.

If you see him, remind him that:

  1. He screwed the Miami Dolphins by quitting right before training camp, having given no prior indication that he was considering the move

  2. He was basically the offense in Miami and his quitting effectively destroyed any chances his team had of a successful season

  3. His future obligations to the team were so great that an arbitrator decided that he has to pay back the team $8mm—which he probably doesn't even have at this point



I think it at least deserves a "My bad guys. Sorry for blowing up your season."

Or he could at least shave the beard.

One has to start somewhere.

Back when I didn't live on a block of floating ice, I played craps with Ricky at the Hard Rock Casino in LV. He was on fire. He made me hundreds of dollars with my modest bets... he must of made himself tens of thousands in a 20 minute period. The man can roll the bones... (is this thing on?) The table was in flames... the other players were whooping and hollaring... but it was only after I turned to him and said, "Hey Ricky... you're making us all rich here... smile man!" did he finally crack a smile. It was a genuine smile and a warm one. I can see how he fools people. Moral of the story... Ricky's weird... but a killer craps player.

That is a beautiful story Rube, thanks for sharing. But I bet you'd feel differently if he had turned to you all and told you to put your faith in one more roll of his dice and then when all your bets were laid he tossed the dice into the glass of a passing waitress, set the table on fire and dashed off to sit under Jimmy Hendrix's guitar where he proceeded to light up and smoke his own pants.

Blackout

The jury did not believe that Lil' Kim's sunglasses kept her from noticing that it was her friends who were shooting people outside the Hot 97 radio station. Apparently she misplaced the manual for her Joo Janta 200 Peril-Sensitive Sunglasses™. The jury, having not personally experienced the usefulness of having sunglasses that turn progressively black in the presence of danger, thought she was just a liar. Zaphod could have told them that a person wearing such sunglasses would definitely not seen anyone shooting anyone else under any circumstances. The interesting thing about the above article is not that Lil' Kim is the first female rap star to go to prison, but that this radio station is the place where rap entourages go to have shootouts. "Hot 97 is the same station where the posses of 50 Cent and The Game traded bullets last month." Hot 97 is the new OK Corral! We may have just found a career for Latigo that would make good use of his skills. He just

How to write like a gossip columnist

Anyone can do it! Just keep in mind to never use your source's name, and always play up a celebrity's reaction to something using the following words: Blast Slam Fuming Here's an example: "Latigo Flint blasted reports that his guns do not actually fire live ammunition." Use them in combination!: "Gil slammed fellow carnie Sal's insinuation that he got a bit too personal with a badger. "It was cold and he wasn't even there!" the one-eyed Whack 'em Cats operator fumed." That's right, kiddies. Anyone can write a gossip column. And with the internet, anyone can publish it, too! p.s. Don't forget to put a salacious slant on everything. And blow things out of proportion, too. In fact, you may want to change your middle name to that.
