Someone in the Dominican Republic knows what they're doing, judging by that Heisman pose on the label. Makes me wonder if they're actually intended to hold tobacco. But, you know, don't share them. Herpes sores and such. [Cigars International]
Michael Vick has now been in jail for about six months, and though he still has at least a year-and-a-half to go, he's not immune to bad news from outside the prison. As if possibly had any money left, now the Canadians are after him.
Considering how much Falcons owner Arthur Blank stuck by Ron Mexico for years, before that dog-fighting business, it should perhaps be little surprise that he's still corresponding with Vick while he's in the slammer. How's he doing, anyway? Has he organized a team to beat the prison guards yet?
Anyone want to adopt one of Vick's pit bulls? He's happy-go-lucky and loves the treadmill. [Atlanta Journal-Constitution]
In the first round, No. 1 seed Ron Mexico/Michael Vick/Ookie was more wobbly than we might have suspected. He could be ripe for an Elite Eight upset.
Another fun story lost in the Mitchell Report tidal wave yesterday? The release of Michael Vick's letter to Judge Hudson attempting to get his sentence reduced. (PDF)
We remember Ron Mexico's contrite, emotional press conference from August, when he nearly broke down and talked about his love for the Lord. We found it an impressive confession. His initial confession was a bit less graceful.
Word has come down from Richmond, Virg.: Michael Vick has been sentenced to 23 months in prison. Prosecutors had recommended 12-18 months in jail, but Judge Henry Hudson went above that. Considerably.
Pretty much every first-round SHOTY matchup has been a blowout. And we doubt this No. 1 vs. No. 16 matchup will be much different.
We didn't get into this yesterday, but all told, we find it pretty amazing that Mr. Mexico has decided to check into jail three weeks early. We understand that it's a plan to look contrite in front of the judge ... but it's still taking quite a risk, wethinks.
A tip for all you kids out there still undecided about your Halloween costume: Just because Michael Vick is going to jail doesn't mean you can dress up in blackface.
You know, it's just not a Wednesday afternoon if someone isn't trying to get more money out of Michael Vick. Next up? His restaurant!
Virginia Tech has been consistent about defending their former star quarterback Ron Mexico since that whole dogfighting business, but his high school, well, they're not so proud anymore.
Yes, yes, we know that Ron Mexico tortured and electrocuted puppies, we know that he's probably not the best person and we know he's gonna spend some serious time in prison. He pretty much deserves whatever's coming to him. But ... we dunno .... is it really fair that the Falcons can now recoup $19.97 million from him?
Ladies and gentlepeople, we have finally figured out what we will do if we are ever convicted of a felony, other than "try to grow a mustache and move to Turks and Caicos." We're gonna make sure we smoke as much weed as possible, and then get caught.
