At a pivotal time in the decision making process for Roger Goddell, NFL Commissioner, one’s assumption would be that Michael Vick would be on his best behavior. Well, a DJ reported that he saw Vick at a Virginia Beach strip club.
This escapade would have happened mere hours after completing his 23-month federal sentencing for funding “Bad Newz Kennels”, a dogfighting operation. But Vick and his lawyer denied the allegations with Vick saying:
“That’s crazy. That is the last place on my mind. I was out of town. I guess it’s just someone trying to be hurtful.”
Now, Roger Goddell has repeatedly said that the former number 1 draft pick will have to show genuine remorse and a change in character. Allegations like this would not help Vick’s case at all. But this triggered the following ideas in my mind:
- After 23 months of jail time, where was the first place we expected him to go? Somewhere with an abundance of tail, perhaps?
- I hope we don’t find out that Vick actually “funds and operates” the strip club, tests out strippers, makes them fight for tips, and kills under-performing pole dancers.
- With the recent illumination on his financial situation, I hope he wasn’t a big tipper. That wouldn’t look very responsible. But maybe that’s why he was tagging along with Iverson…
- Maybe Iverson was counseling Vick. You might say,”Iverson…the counselor?” Absolutely. What better guy to know what the 3-time Pro-Bowler is going through. In Iverson’s words:
“I can sympathize with him. Because I’ve been that person. And I feel like, right now, I am that person, to a certain extent.”
“Back when I was 22, even if I knew somebody got killed in a place a week ago, it wouldn’t stop me from going. I’m just happy I got it before it was too late, before I was out of this league or dead or in jail.”
Hopefully, A.I. can help Vick get it before it’s too late, too.
