Thoughts on Love, Sex & Entertainment

Michael Vick Loves Dogs

72I’m not sure how I feel about this yet.  NFL star Michael Vick was released from a Kansas prison Wednesday morning.  He is now on home confinement for 2 months to finish his 23 month sentence for dog fighting.  Of course, Vick is saying the “correct” things and trying to “do” the correct things to revitalize his career.  He has contacted Wayne Pacelle, president of the Humane Society of the United States and wants to work with the organization in getting the message out to the urban teens  that training dogs to fight until death is wrong.  Do as I say, not as I do…..Hmm….I wonder if he’d be anti dogfighting if he hadn’t been caught?   It’s kind of like closing the barn door after the horses have gotten out.  Pacelle has gone on record saying that he has met with Vick at Leavenworth prison.

Once again, hmmm……At one time Vick played for the Atlanta Falcons and was one of the highest paid quarterbacks of all time .  Somehow all the money, fame and glory wasn’t enough for him.  Most wayward football players dabble in the celebrity life, but not Vick, who chose to fight and kill dogs for his entertainment.  He has gone on record stating that he wants to play football again.   He hopes to persuade NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to reinstate him.

Will the public forgive Vick for his “bad decisions and let him play professional football once again?”  The National Humane Society is taking a big risk in backing this guy.  Sure people can change, but can they change this drastically in such a short amount of time?  I have a feeling that if you dangle a large amount of money in front of Vick, he just might become anything the public wants him to become.
