Michael Vick signed with the Philadelphia Eagles late last week in a move that shocked many fans. Perhaps the most surprising aspect of the deal was that Vick signed with the Eagles - a team in no need of QB help as Donovan McNabb has been at the helm for quite sometime.
But, the biggest news from the Vick case is not that he was reinstated into the NFL and quickly latched on to a team.
The big bad wolf (perhaps a poor choice of words, eh?) said that he cried while in prison... and I'm supposed to feel sorry for him?
I find it shameful and equally offensive that Vick thinks the world should feel empathetic toward his 23-month stay while incarcerated in Leavenworth, KS. Rather than fulfilling his full sentence in the federal penitentiary in Kansas he was released after 19 months, forced to endure 4 torturous months of home confinement in his mansion in Hampton, VA.
Give me a break and cry me a friggen river, Vick. Any pain or suffering he endured is nothing compared to the torture, cruelty, and outright inhumanity of his malicious behavior.
I would take a league full of Pete Rose's (who I believe did no harm to his sport, but that's another story) in lieu of a league with one slime-ball like Vick. Go back to prison, jerk.
