Just a bit of a quick and dirty post to get thoughts on the enigma wrapped in a riddle shrouded in mystery that is Rudra Williams. A pretty raw and fascinating look at the man where I thought you could really see him mature considerably as the doc went on. Some quick hits:
- That whole amphetamine theory to get himself 'amped up' for games and which caused him to get suspended for a non-marijuana related violation seemed to fall short to me. I don't think it was that.
- His father is one creepy fucker and I hated his stupid, defiant face
- Ricky has gone through some 'Machinist'-like body transformations. From when he was built like an ox at Texas to his lean 'retirement' days. Amazing.
- Ricky, like many of us, cannot resist the allure of condomless, White pussy sex
- Dan LeBatard has been in about 18 '30-for-30's by my count
- LeBatard did make a very salient point about how - 8 years later - he we still are with Ricky. We've been up, down and all around with that guy.
- I don't know if he's taking medication now (it seems like it) but he appears more at ease and somewhat rooted. Still, when he plays with the kids, there was something a bit 'off' about the guy. You just get the feeling he could take off again at any minute.
- I had quite a few chuckles with my roommate pretending to be some old Cuban guy at Ricky's wedding urging him along to hurry things up because there was a storm coming. Get a tent, dude!
- Seeing him run that long TD against the Saints made my balls move around in my scrotum
- 'Blaze' Williams is not only a hilarious name, but he will be the #1 overall pick of the 2025 draft.
- Pretty mind-blowing to think this NFL fucking STAR has run the gamut of freaky deaky shit. His career arch is practically fuckin' Beatles-like. From his screaming-girls ascendancy to retirement from the scene (no live shows) to drug use to finding meditation and Eastern philosophy. If he ends his career playing a game on a London rooftop, I give up.
Really, it made for great TV. If you haven't seen it, you should get around to it ASAP.
