Remember that “Mike Vick likely to play” story from Tuesday? It was penned by Jeff McLane of the Inquirer. A writer at the Daily News, Les Bowen, tried to mock McLane on twitter, claiming his story was poppycock. McLane exploded at him for being an “old hack and not “breaking a story in years.” [I can’t get into all the minutiae; but Crossing Broad, which has been flooding the zone with coverage of this story, has everything, in case the best tweets were deleted.]
Today at practice, Bowen reportedly took a swing at McLane, and it cause such a ruckus that Asante Samuel was joking about it – loudly – in the locker room.
All that’s missing here is the Rocky music. [Samuel video via Crossing Broad]
