I will say, for starters, that yes, I know – it’s been forever since my last post. I apologize. Life has gotten in the way. And in return, you might be hoping for some funny, witty post from yours truly as some sort of retribution for my lengthy period of silence.
Well, I am here to let you know that this won’t be happening.
WHY? You can thank Michael Vick for that one.
Ever since hearing of his release back into the real world today, to which I really have nothing good to say, I found it absolutely ridiculous that he might possibly be teaming up with the Humane Society to speak out against dogfighting.
First off, this is garbage. If ANYONE else had done what Vick had done, they would be 1) Serving a much longer sentence; and 2) Being laughed at for even thinking they could team up with the Humane Society.
But here, that is not the case. Vick, who did unimaginable and unthinkable things to poor, defenseless dogs, will now be an advocate for their rights, simply because he is a celebrity.
I’m sorry, but am I the only one who thinks this is beyond wrong? Not just as someone who advocates for animals rights, but as an intelligent person (we hope) with common sense?
The only reason he is even doing this is because his publicist knew he needed to do something newsworthy to get back into the NFL – thanks to the ever lovely Roger Goodell. Yes, boys and girls, the NFL Commissioner has made it clear that Vick can be reinstated, so long as he demonstrates a “genuine remorse”. Okay, Rog. Because people who do what Vick did are obviously really, really sorry about it after the fact.
And, with that being stated, I would like to end this post on a bright note – and what note isn’t bright when it includes a picture of a puppy?
Happy Wednesday, party people.
