That would be the yard in the big house as the last shoe finally fell in this sorry a$$ dog fighting saga. As I first pointed out with his sorry cousin Davon Boddie in my July 23rd post, clearly Vick surrounded himself with a very sorry crew. Every last one of his boyz couldn't cop a plea fast enough despite the hook ups that came their way over the years courtesy of Vick, their human meal ticket....
It was obvious that Vick thought his crew had his back. How else can you explain pre guilty plea quotes from Vick like:
"I look forward to clearing my good name" (which was never very good from jump thanks to his knucklehead brother Marcus...)
"It's unfortunate I have to take the heat," [Vick] said. "If I'm not there, I don't know what's going on. It's a call for me to really tighten down on who I'm trying to take care of. When it all boils down, people will try to take advantage of you and leave you out to dry. Lesson learned for me."
Lesson learned indeed. One to be played out shortly in federal prison (home of Tossed Salad Man - careful, y'all! That's a R-rated link since it's a video of the *real* Tossed Salad Man - grown folks only and *no* office viewing with your speakers on MAX...), one which could result in the premature death of his NFL career (odds are the earliest he might see the field again is 2009) and one which has already has resulted in the loss of his tall endorsement chedda.
That his boyz cut deals and agreed to testify against him faster than a speeding bullet really isn't surprising given they were leeching busters to begin with. That Michael Vick actually thought they'd fall on their swords for him, well that was just plain stupid. That Michael Vick actually willingly killed dogs in some seriously heinous ways, well that's what night time visits from the Tossed Salad Man are for. If a brother ever needed superlative scrambling skillz, it will damn sure be at lights out in the federal pen....
