We all know that most people have forgiven Michael Vick. A recent blog has surfaced on Russell Simmons‘ site “supposedly” from Michael Vick, saying he is sorry about this, or that he is sorry about that. Well, come to find out, the blog is a FAKE and these PETA geeks are taking this too far.
Here is some of the fake post…
I’m sorry. That’s the place where I need to begin. My feeling of remorse. I ain’t never written a blog before, so putting my thoughts down on paper is a challenge – however it’s a challenge I must face. I can look a 250 pound linebacker in his eyes at the line of scrimmage and have no fear. But expressing myself when I know that there are millions of people who are so angry with me, and rightfully so, is a challenge unlike any other I have faced before.
What I did was horrendous. Awful. Inhumane. And I’ve no excuses for my actions. It makes my heart hurt now to think about what I’ve done. And I’m gonna be real honest, it took a while for me to get to this place. Sitting in a prison cell didn’t make me feel remorse….
…It was meeting so many animal lovers, speaking with them and looking them in their eyes. Staring at them. Looking so deep into their eyes that I began to feel their pain. Allowing that pain to enter into my body is when I started to understand how bad it really was. I have been trying hard to connect with people who feel this pain,because for my whole life I was disconnected from the suffering of animals. And you might say, “come on Mike, how could you do those things to those dogs?” And you’re right…I
ask myself those questions every day. What kind of person does this? How does a human-being treat dogs or any animal with such pain and cruelty? And the hard part for me is the answer to these questions. Because the answer is ME. And I am trying so hard right now to become a better person, because who I was, I am ashamed of.
Now that I’m trying my best to wake up, I know I have a lot of work to do. And this isn’t about trying to win a Super Bowl ring or a MVP trophy…this is about trying to save lives. If I had one hope in life, it would be that my actions will speak louder than my words. I know it will be hard to forgive me until you see my sincerity through my actions, but I promise you and I promise myself that that day will come.
Lastly, I accept this challenge, not of writing this blog, but of redeeming myself.
Redeeming himself? The man lost everything and did two years in the joint for a f*cking dog ring… his debt to society is paid.
Now this is the real on that situation:
Several readers have forwarded to us a link to a blog that purports to be a blog supposedly authored by Eagles quarterback Mike Vick. So we asked Eagles spokesman Derek Boyko whether it’s legit. “It is not,” Boyko said by e-mail. “I just asked him.” So you can stop sending us the link to the supposed Vick blog. It’s a phony.
Damn, PETA wouldn’t take it this far, would they? SMH
