As stated previously, we haven’t been big posters of Michael Vick-related news around these parts.
Basically, we just think it’s out of control now. And it only continues to spiral downward.
But, today’s press conference (and preceding Outside-the-Lines-type program) did have mom’s basement aglow.
A few thoughts —
***Skip Bayless is the most moronic, outrageous ESPN personality. His comments today included this gem:
“Michael Vick has killed hundreds and hundreds of dogs.”
Skip probably has evidence to support this, but he is exempt from all federal investigations — it’s one of the perks of being a founding father of Cold Pizza.
***Vick was doing alright in giving his statement (not prepared, at least somewhat from the heart), until he said he “this situation has helped me find Jesus” and “I’ve turned my life over to God.”
Is this a requirement for every athlete/rapper/personality who finds the law first?
If Vick would have looked at his WWJD bracelet a few years earlier, it probably would have said “not sponsor a dog fighting empire” on the flip side.
***Lastly, Vick is getting shafted. His image, combined with his notoriety, have brought a probably somewhat unfair sentence. This statement is based on the fact that Leonard Little has actually killed a person and still plays in the NFL. To show that he was indeed contrite, Little got another DUI six years after committing murder.
Boy, this was awfully serious for us. Thanks Mike.
