Michael Vick becomes involved in the business of dog-fighting.
That is, until his dog Cofi is shot during a fight by the rival owner whom Mike Vick then stabs. While being fired at by his pursuers, Vick finds himself in a car chase along with his lifelong friend, and the wounded dog. In the crash his best friend Daunte Culpepper dies, while he is badly injured.
Wait A Second.... I have been confusing the recent Breaking News , "Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick's indictment late Tuesday afternoon by a Federal Grand Jury in Richmond, Va., for conspiracy to transport dogs across state lines for the purpose of dog fighting with the plot of Amores perros, an Academy Award winning Mexican film directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu in 2000.
The movie is superb, Plusultra recommends you check it out and that Michael Vick Checks himself in to the crazy house.
I was a big fan of Vick's awesome quarterback style and especially his running capabilities. He was my favorite football Player. I used to love O.J. Simpson too, now I can only admire their athletic skills with a tinged and tarnished perspective. I wish Mike the strength to realize his involvement in this Pit-Bull atrocity of dog abuse is wrong and that he can bear the burden he has created for himself now that he has gone from hero to zero faster than Daunte Culpepper(Who was let go today by the Miami Dolphins).
A dark day in football history today indeed, I am sure we will be hearing a lot more of this gruesome case for years to come,
Ever Higher Ever Farther Ever better,
