Your surest sign that the Vick signing is the perfect shitstorm of media in the perfect town for a media shitstorm? Everyone needed to know what Chase Utley's wife had to say about it.

She likes animals, you see, and is married to someone involved in Philadelphia sports, so what does she think about this mean man who will be playing games right across the street from where her husband plays his?

And on a football note, Vick has claimed his first victim. Giants rookie RB Andre Brown is done for the year after injuring himself in a let's-learn-to-defend-against-the-Wildcat drill.
