"Listen: People are always saying, 'Rickey says "Rickey."' But it's been blown way out of proportion. I say it when I don't do what I need to be doing. I use it to remind myself, like, 'Rickey, what you doing, you stupid [...]?' I'm just scolding myself. I'm not broadcasting it, I'm not tripping over it. I don't mean anything by it. People might catch me, when they know I'm ticked off, saying, 'Rickey, what the heck are you doing, Rickey?' They say, 'Darn, Rickey, what are you doing, what are you saying "Rickey" for? Why don't you just say, "I"?' But I never did. I always said, 'Rickey,' and it became something for people to joke about.
