The inevitable happened last week as an NFL team decided to sign former Atlanta Falcon Mike Vick. Quite frankly, all the hoopla surrounding the event was a waste of my time, your time and the time of anyone with an ounce of decency about them.
There’s been much debate about Vick since it came to light that he was heavily involved in the underground world of dogfighting. It should be noted that while dogfighting in and of itself is deplorable enough, published reports indicated Vick and his cronies also took part in the brutal execution of dogs who were not up to the task of competing in this barbaric action.
(Note, dogfighting is in no way on par with the sport of ultimate fighting as I heard one clueless caller to a sports talk show try to imply. The reason? People have the choice to participate in ultimate fighting, dogs have no such choice.)
