Mike Vick: I totally ignored the Vick-Oprah madness this week, but I did enjoy this column by Phil Sheridan. “What if audience members – many of whom may be immune to Vick’s charms on the field – turned hostile? What if Winfrey and her producers decided it would be good television to bring one of the dogs rescued from his Bad Newz Kennelz onto the set? Some of the people who have adopted those dogs have been very critical of Vick; what if one of them caused Vick to lose his composure or, worse, his temper?” Vick made a good decision. He spent 21 months in jail. He had nothing to gain by going on Oprah. [Inquirer]
