Mike Vick…well, at least he’s fast, right?

This picture is awesome, and is from Kissing Suzy KolberYou have seriously got to be kidding me. No, seriously. A day after ESPN decided to hold their Michael Vick town meeting (honestly ESPN…this was the worst idea ever…you did nothing but continue to strengthen the racial divide between whites and blacks in Atlanta. Besides that…this was a little late, yes? He pleaded guilty almost a month ago…you are ESPN for goodness sakes; you couldn’t get the panel together any faster?), and there was a large outpour of support for Vick, we have some not so positive Michael Vick news…he’s tested positive for marijuana usage. The result? U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson ordered Vick confined to his home between 10pm and 6am with electronic monitoring and he has to submit to random drug testing.

Honestly, what more could Michael Vick do wrong? The only way he could make this situation worse is if he hi-jacked a plane or something. If you are already in trouble for arguably the biggest sports story in the last 10 years, and then you get a small reprieve with Bill Belichick and the Patriots spygate incident, and then what do you do? bring yourself right back into the spotlight with your failed urine test.

What’s the old adage? Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. The bad part for Michael Vick? I think Judge Hudson knows the adage as well.

  1. Sportstalk in Philly slammed ESPN hard for that debacle. Pre-empting their “Holy Grail” of Sportscenter for something that, if you were going to execute it at all, you should have done over a month ago…every weekend they practically dump out of exciting, live programming to go to their bread-n-butter Sportscenter but in this case they actually booted it over to ESPN2 so they could put more gasoline on the smoldering fire of this story.
