My Football Fantasy: Michael Vick

Vermont League: lost, 112.24-77.76 (0-2, 9th of 12)
My Player of the Week: Michael Vick (Quarterback, Eagles) with 23 completions for 371 yards, 1 touchdown, 2 interceptions, 2 sacks, 1 lost fumble, 10 rushing attempts for 34 yards and 1 rushing touchdown

It would appear my college league team is chock full of sketchy characters.  Vick's crimes in the dogfighting operation were nothing short of monstrous.  I will not be inviting him over for dinner or letting him cat-sit. However, he served his sentence and is still abundantly qualified to do the job he is paid to do.  He is the NFL's all-time leading rusher at quarterback.


  1. Good morning, Squid. Having not a spectator sport bone (left) in my body after high school and college save for certain Olympic events, I always reflexively bypass these sports fantasies when I see them on my blog roll but I thought, what the hell? I'll check this one out.

    Now I know what you steer clear of when searching for a cat sitter.

    1. I know. They're not for everyone. Fun for me, though. And every once in a while, I find a really great photo.

      Yes, convicted dogfighters are generally not the best pet-sitting candidates.

    2. I like the new tag line for your blog. It pulls things together elegantly.
