The Knucklehead of the Day award
Today's winner is Michael Vick. He gets the award for the following.
Suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick pleaded guilty on Monday to a federal dogfighting conspiracy charge.Vick gave a long apology yesterday, but bloggers myself included, question its sincerity. The suspended quarterback was lying to the public and NFL till just recently. Why believe him now.
In his written plea filed in court Friday, Vick admitted he helped to kill six to eight pit bull dogs and supplied money for gambling on the fights. He said he did not personally place any bets or share in any winnings.
At Monday's hearing, U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson asked Vick, "Are you entering the plea of guilty to a conspiracy charge because you are in fact guilty?"
Vick replied, "Yes, sir."
The plea agreement calls for a sentencing range of 12 to 18 months, but U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson is known for handing down tough sentences.
"You're taking your chances here. You'll have to live with whatever decision I make," Hudson said. He could impose the maximum sentence of up to five years in prison.
Hudson will sentence Vick on Dec. 10.
Vick is finished as a football player for both 2007 and 2008, even if the judge gives him the lightest sentence. I predict it now- The NFL will re-instate Vick one day. In the meantime, I make Michael Vick today's Knucklehead of the Day.
