The Dog Days of Michael Vick

B. Thomas Cooper - Editor




Say it ain’t so, Michael, just say it ain’t so

On the other hand, perhaps you should simply fess up to your crimes, apologize to the NFL and your fans, and go do your time like a man. I know it won’t be easy, but it isn’t supposed to be. You’re being incarcerated because your crimes were as despicable as they were illegal.

We sports fans have a bad habit of believing our stars can do no wrong. We assume if one is a great quarterback, one is presumably a great neighbor as well. What a farce! I believed in you Michael, and this whole time you were nothing more than a lowly dog killer.

Soon people will starting asking questions. Different questions than they’re asking now. Questions like, do you think you are rehabilitated, and are you remorseful for your crimes? What will you tell them, Vick? What will you tell yourself?

Personally, I would rather you never return to pro football, as I can’t imagine watching you play without harboring ill intent. It just wouldn’t feel right.

You know what, Michael? I hope they put you someplace with guard dogs. Really mean ones with sharp teeth and strong jaws. And you know what else, Michael? I wish those dogs could understand what you’ve done. I really do.
