All you Michael Vick lovers out there might want to keep your
distance, or at the very least stock up on your valtrex. And yes, this
is old news, but I just found out about it Thursday- so it’s new to me!
And yes, part of this schadenfreude. Part of this is me taking delight
in the fact that at least as Michael Vick threw kittens in to be
devoured by dogs, he had to contend with itchy balls and a burning
sensation. So yeah, partly this just serves him right.
But that’s only part of it. The other part is the incessant pleas of
vick supporters that I should stop bitching and get in line, because
he deserves a “second chance”. As if he had been some upstanding
citizen before, and he had just made a mistake (a seven year, ongoing
mistake that he never fully admitted to or atoned for…but I
digress). The herpes thing matters, the Ron Mexico thing matters,
because it shows a pattern of selfish, antisocial behavior that he is
now ” infecting” my team with, just as he infected women without
giving them fair warning first. And yeah, herpes isn’t deadly, but it
is forever, and it is a sign of what he thinks of other people, let
alone of dogs and cats.
Michael Vick is a bad person. Case closed, end of story. And if he
wasn’t a wart on my teams legacy, maybe I wouldn’t care so much. Hell,
I missed the whole Ron Mexico thing entirely when it first happened.
But, the point remains- this isn’t his second chance- it’s his third
or his fourth. And he’s still a piece of shit. With herpes. A piece of
shit who likes to spread around herpes.
