Ex-Convict quarterback Michael Vick, fresh from his prison sentence for dog fighting and animal cruelty, was scooped up by Philadelphia’s NFL team. He appeared on the CBS 60 Minutes program yesterday, in the “Celebrity Contrition” feature usually reserved for adulterer politicians and film star drug addicts.
Philadephia quarterback Donovan McNabb hounded his team to hire Mr. Vick, knowing the press would dog his every step and leave other players in peace. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell ruled that Mr. Vick would have to stay on the sidelines and sit out the first part of the season before rolling over into official play. He is undergoing obedience training under Philadelphia Offensive Coordinator Cesar Millan Marty Mornhinweg, public service training with the Humane Society, and sensitivity training with Triumph, the comedy dog.
