Vick to plead guilty to first-degree scumbaggery

Atlanta Falcons (soon-to-be-ex-) quarterback Michael Vick will plead guilty to charges connected with illegal dogfighting.

In more cheerful news, unwanted Vick jerseys are being put to good use at the Atlanta Humane Society. Somehow the thought of his name and number being repeatedly soaked in dog urine just warms the cockles of my heart.

I hope that in prison, they serve him the best food Alpo has to offer.

I gave him the benefit of the doubt, in that I didn't comment one way or the other until Monday. But the evidence was pretty damning. I'm really disillusioned with a lot of players I previously admired who still wish him well even after he admitted to doing it and then lying about it to everyone.

I feel bad for the fans of the Atlanta Falcons, especially the kids. I still remember how sick I felt when my favorite Dodger Steve Garvey turned out to be a wife-beater. Asshole.
