How far ahead of the curve is Errick Miron?
Remember when everyone clutched their pearls after Ricky Williams mimed smoking a joint on the sidelines of a Miami Dolphins game? It aged about as well as the “a college scholarship is more than enough compensation for student athletes” argument. We can debate the health risks of smoking weed all we want, but the less incentives for making money off privatized prisons the better. While clearly I’ve been working remotely from Florida for too long (why weed isn’t legal here I have no idea), it’s clear that Miron was onto something. Now, if you’re wondering “Who is Errick Miron?” It’s Ricky Williams. CleanHas a special flexible head to hit everywhere you need it to, has a variety of different functions to use to fit your preferred style, and is designed to last seven years. Speaking on the ever- progressive Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz, Miron detailed why he opted to pivot from a moniker that he used during his rise to fame as a Heisman Trophy winner and NFL running back to one that’s not a self-absorbed publicity stunt like Enes Freedom or Chad Ocho Cinco.
“I’ve found that that’s been really powerful in creating ease, intimacy and trust in my relationship,” Miron said. Errick didn’t even tweet about it, or announce the change publicly.

Miron also isn’t concerned about his business suffering because he’s no longer Ricky Williams. “To me, this makes the story of Ricky Williams more interesting,” he said. The other benefit, aside from the couple that Miron outlined, is now Linnea no longer has to be known as “Ricky Williams’ wife” as is often the case for spouses of high-profile people.
Also during his chat with Le Batard and Stugotz, Errick said he had been mulling this decision for a while. “Something I’ve been thinking about and talking about, and I finally went through the steps. (His inspiration came after learning a lot about his marriage through a relationship-astrology class with Linnea, and on the list of things Errick Miron would do, a relationship-astrology class is right below him offering astrology readings on his website and right above his herbal wellness business. I don’t think a husband taking his wife’s last name will catch on in the same fashion as legalized marijuana, but who knows. And for those of you asking if I would do that if/when I get married, I deserve everything — good and, most notably, bad — that comes with my name.
