About 48 hours after being kicked off of the Virginia Tech football team, and 24 hours after I told all of you that you’ll read more about Marcus Vick on the police blotter than in the NFL, Vick was arrested for pulling a gun on a 17-year-old boy in a McDonald’s parking lot.
I would personally like to thank Marcus for living down to my expectations and for renewing my faith in having no faith in people like him. My cynicism renewed, I can now continue unabated as a confirmed disparager who doesn’t need to reevaluate my nature to never give a brat like Vick a third or forth chance.
Perhaps we all jumped the gun, pun intended. When Vick said he was turning pro, we all – myself included – thought he was talking about pro football. As things have turned out perhaps “Marcus the Terrible” meant he was looking to become a professional criminal.
After all, he is not a good quarterback and maybe he realized he couldn’t hack it at the position. He figured this suspension stuff was for amateurs, and that he’d go for a real crime with a gun and get some jail time. Time behind bars will give him the kind of legitimacy he’ll never earn on the football field or earn from crimes like getting some teenage girls drunk with the intention of sleeping with one of them.
At the time we went to press, Vick hadn’t made any comments with regards to this incident nor has he given any indication of any intentions to commit other crimes.Powered by Sidelines
