Yesterday we mentioned that Michael Vick’s three-year probation is set to end on Friday. With that, he will have the ability to purchase or adopt a dog. Conventional wisdom would suggest that Vick would probably wait awhile to utilize his right to own the type of animal that almost killed and certainly derailed his career.
Vick sat down on CNN last night with Piers Morgan, who inquired about the possibility of the Eagles quarterback owning a dog. Vick would certainly sidestep such a potential distraction, right? He would certainly say something about how he loves animals, but doesn’t think now is the time to get involved with such polarizing stuff, right? He would certainly say how his focus is on his new marriage, his children, and a critical 2012 football season, right? No. No, of course not.
Here was Vick’s response: I can’t take that dream away from them,” he said. “That’s selfish on my behalf. You know, so, gotta find a way to make it right and, you know, I put everything in God’s hands to make it right.”
Oh boy. Check out the interview below.
