So apparently Michael Vick was spotted at an airport bar sipping on some Grey Goose.
STOP THE PRESSES! MICHAEL VICK HAS BEEN SPOTTED LEGALLY DRINKING!!!!
For the past 48 hours I've hear every angle about how that was a bad public move and how this shows that Michael Vick hasn't learned anything... all for sitting down and having a drink with friends.
Listen, Vick is a crazy mofo. That's been established. He's got some serious issues. However none of those issues have anything to do with alcohol. I understand that he's put himself in a position of criticism (that tends to happen when you run a dog-fighting ring on the side of being one of the most popular quarterbacks in the NFL) - but could our media please try to come up with something more compelling than his apparent good taste in booze?
I mean, it would be nice to see him building churches for people and healing the sick with the touch of his hand, but him enjoying an alcoholic drink should have no affect on his already destroyed public image. He brought it upon himself, but for my own sports fandom, it kind of sucks that there will be a camera and reporter around every corner to tell me when Michael Vick doesn't kiss a baby.
It's enough to drive me to drink.
