Michael Vick’s prison drama

Add this share


The drama that is Michael Vick keeps on adding new twists and turns.

On Monday, the New York Daily news reported that Vick joined fellow inmates at the minimum security clink in Leavenworth for games of flag football. Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank told the newspaper that the former quarterback is staying in shape by playing “both sides.” Football, that is.

Now, officials with the U.S. Bureau of Prisons say not so fast, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. A spokesperson told the paper that Vick arrived at the prison in January, well after the completion of the fall football season. While he may have tossed the pigskin around the prison yard, there were no football games to be had. So says the prison.

Blank, probably now wishing he’d never gone public about his correspondence with Vick, refused comment to the AJC.
