Ricky Williams Signs With the Argos

Ricky will suit up for the Toronto Argonauts this year. Press conference is live on TSN...right now.

Actual quote from the Argos GM:

"If we hadn't been able to sign him, my life would already have been enriched by having met this man."

I don't even have a joke for this.

If one were an Argos fan one would perhaps hope that this would turn out better than Dexter Manley did for the Ottawa Rough Riders. (Though, admittedly, Manley was past his prime and whatever one may think of them Cynamon and Sokolowski are not the Gleibermans).

Given that Ricky did reasonably well in the NFL last year, and the competition level in the NFL is far ahead of that of the CFL, I'm thinking that Ricky is going to do pretty well for himself. Maybe he won't have a Rocket Ismail-type impact for the Argos, but he'll be good.

On a related CFL note, someone should dispatch a camera crew to follow Onterrio Smith and Ricky Williams around 24/7 whenever their respective teams visit the B.C. Lions. You just know that one of those guys is going to slip up.
