Looky, Ookie



Ok, It's a crying shame and a darn waste. I conducted an informal poll of middle school students the other day and probably 50% of male students surveyed wanted to be involved in professional sports at some point in life.



Michael Vick was born in the seedy Newport News, VA to a 16-year-old girl who already had one child. His mom ran a tight ship, but his dad wasn't around when he was growing up.

Boys in the poorer parts of town dream of professional sports like the Blue Collars dream of the Lotto!

Sooo...Vick was a kid with a rough start who really "made it". Now, he's going to jail. Stupid. Gambling and brutally killing dogs. Vick, why'd you do it? It couldn't have been about the money?

So, the Falcons lose one of the only good things they had going for them. No wonder the locals tune in to college ball. Oklahoma State is going down. Indeed.

Good night. Days off. I am newly in love with Labor Day!
