Now, let me get this straight.
Michael Vick is okay to play in the NFL. Michael Vick — who tortured, electrocuted, drowned, and killed dogs who weren’t vicious enough to fight for him in his dog-fighting ring.
Somebody who likes to watch animals in pain for sport — a convicted criminal — he’s okay for the NFL.
Rush has never been convicted of any crime. Never.
Oh, I’m sorry, you didn’t know that?
In short, a guy who is a devoted NFL fan; who used to work for the Kansas City Chiefs; who gives millions to charity every year — he’s a worse choice for the NFL than a convicted felon tho tortures animals.
Well . . . . you are judged by the company you keep, right? In that case, the NFL can do without my company. I can weather the weeks between the end of the Cubs season to the start of the Spurs Season without the Bears or the Cowboys.
And I can very much do without the Indianapolis Colts, Thank You:
Oh, how nice that Mr. Irsay actually “talked to the players.” How very egalitarian of you, sir.
Personally, I think Rush was right about Donovan McNabb. Anybody who would let an IHOP waitress blindside tackle him can’t be much of an NFL player.
Wardrobe Malfunctions. Animal Torturers. Smear Merchants. Welcome to your NFL 2009.
