    actually they were pimping the call in like crazy, he hasn't yet shown up...don't know if he's running late or if it fell through - and going into break haven't again used it as a teaser. So we've gone from "momentarily" to WTF :idk:

    if the latter sorry for the false alarm

    The Mikes laughingly thought the interview was out there and unstructured "like being on a surfboard riding a wave." Apparently Ricky was planning on coming back until Parcells texted him to reconsider encouraging him to follow his true self before he got burned out. Ricky did not retire with a specific next objective in mind, saying that he's got "infinite" possibilities, enjoys learning and will most likely travel the world taking classes which are yet to be determined. It will be an "amazing adventure" for him. When asked if he liked football he more or less said it was a means to the end he's now pursuing and when asked if he'd have done things differently he more or less responded "no." When they asked if he would be open to a team whose RB went down next season, he didn't completely dismiss that possibility but said he'd probably be in a foreign country when the call came so who knows.

    Apparently they just put his interview up on their ESPN homepage.

    I heard his interview on the radio this morning too. Guy definitely sounds like a free-spirited nutbar but I don't mind. I'm not here to judge him and he's my favorite RB of all-time so it's all good. It's amazing he played as long as he did based on how he talks about playing the game.

    The thing about Ricky is that when he was on the field playing he always gave 100 percent. I never saw a play where he didn't run hard or give full effort. He will go down as one of my favorite rbs of all time as well.

    If only someone could have texted Parcells to step down and retire years ago
