Michael Vick: “The Sky’s the Limit.” Here we go again…

As the NFL season comes to a close and everybody is focused on some meaningless game being played in a couple weeks, Michael Vick is doing his part to stay relevant.  He recently made these comments to an ESPN reporter:

“The sky’s the limit, and I know that,” Vick said. “I just know how hard I’ve got to work. I know what I can accomplish.”

Really?  Have you not learned your lesson?  As if dogs weren’t enough, Michael Vick is now proclaiming he’s taken to the sky, aka the birds.  Now you may be thinking that this quote could very well be referring to his football skills.  But you’re wrong.  Recent events offer all the confirmation any doubters may need to think otherwise.  Read what the LA times had to say:

“Scientists still don’t know what’s causing flocks of birds to drop from the sky in the South, even as several hundred more fell dead onto a Louisiana highway.

The puzzling phenomenon started on New Year’s Eve when thousands of blackbirds were found dead in central Arkansas. Townsfolk spent their holiday weekend removing the remains of between 4,000 and 5,000 dead red-winged blackbirds. Scientists have descended on the town, trying to find a cause for the mass die-off.”

That’s right, 5,000 dead birds.  Coincidence?  I think not.  If you’re traveling anywhere in the next few weeks, I’d drive.  If you’re going to Europe, take a boat.

Knicks Consult Veteran Dog on How to Draft Potential Big Men

Jordan Hill, Renaldo Balkman, Mardy Collins, Frederic Weis…the list goes on. The Knicks have had trouble drafting in recent years and could really use a budding big man.  Yeah, we can blame Isiah Thomas, and we have a right to. Heck, I blame him for just about everything that happened in my life over the last five years. But that only goes so far, and I still find myself crying at night.  Anyway, this is our season, and the next five years will become our dynasty. But for this to truly happen, we need to make changes, and we need them now.

Well, according to our sources at What The Pup Is Up, the Knicks are closing in on a deal with Charlie, the brown, Zen Master dog in the middle:

Now, you probably are muttering to yourself, “What the pup is up!? A puppy can’t help the Knicks, can it?” Hold your horses, mister. Drafting is a skill. A skill that the Knicks clearly lack, and Charlie clearly has.

You see, about three years ago, Charlie was roughed up by some stray dogs in a dark alley. Just your typical News Channel 5 sad story of a pup in the wrong place at the wrong time. Scared for his life, Charlie realized he needed a team — some say, a gang — in case he were ever in this situation again.  Needless to say, he drafted those two puppies into his gang — err, team.

Within six months, his draft choices looked promising, but they were still getting bullied in dark alleys and out-fetched in puppy sports:

Within a year, his draft choices were gaining confidence:

Now, look at them and try not to be scared:

Holy Moly Mother of Pup. You see what I see? These pups were munchkins when Charlie first drafted them, and now they are like the Twin Towers of fur. The three just can’t be beat. Wanna play catch? Game over. Wanna get the newspaper for me? Already got it…and your neighbor’s too. Seriously, Charlie is a gem when it comes to drafting, and let’s pray that our sources are right, and the Knicks are making moves to ink this guy to a contract.
