Former Hokie goin to the Pokey !

Michael Vick's lawyer said today the NFL star will plead guilty to federal dogfighting conspiracy charges, putting the Atlanta Falcons quarterback's career in jeopardy and leaving him subject to a possible prison term. The offense is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine, although federal sentencing guidelines most likely would call for less. Vick's plea hearing is Aug. 27.

I hope he doesn't play again. In an article, one general manager made the comment, ""Every time you read about this story, it makes you want to take a shower," You can say that again, bub--and I would feel the same way watching any NFL team that featured Vick in its roster even supposing he had done his time. It would be unbearable to watch him on the field again.
