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.
