Michael Vick Reinstated into NFL (Press Conference)

Michael Vick made his debut appearance with the Philadelphia Eagles Friday at a press conference at team headquarters, where he was joined by Eagles coach Andy Reid, mentor/former NFL coach Tony Dungy and, later, team owner Jeffrey Lurie.

The 29-year-old quarterback who formerly played for the Atlanta Falcons was released from federal prison in Leavenworth, Kansas on May 20, 2009 to complete the remainder of his 23 month sentence for felony dogfighting in home confinement at his Virginia.

His reinstatement with the NFL is conditional. The league said in a statement last month:

[Vick ]“will be considered for full reinstatement and to play in regular-season games by Week 6 based on the progress he makes in his transition plan.

Also issuing a statement, responding to the Michael Vick conditional reinstatement, Ed Sayres, president and CEO of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said:

“[NFL] Commissioner Roger Goodell and the Philadelphia Eagles have granted Michael Vick a second chance, and the ASPCA expects Mr. Vick to express remorse for his actions, as well as display more compassion and sound judgment this time around than he did during his previous tenure with the NFL.

At the press conference, announcing Michael Vick Eagles contract, the former Falcons quarterback himself said of his circumstances: “I think everybody deserves a second chance….”I know I’ve done some terrible things, made a horrible mistake. Now I want to be part of the solution and not the problem.” He went on to say he was going to continue his work with the Humane Society to raise awareness about animal cruelty.

Regarding his return to the NFL the Michael Vick press conference video reveals him saying said, “I’m considering this my first year, my first year back.”

Omer Bhatti, confirmed as Michael Jackson’s son!

Omer-Bhatti

For a while now, it has been rumored that Michael Jackson had a “secret son,” Omer Bhatti, who was mysteriously sitting with the Jackson family at Michael’s funeral. Well, the rumors can be put to a stop because Joe Jackson confirmed in an interview with News1 that Omer is Michael’s son. I can already predict that this Omer Bhatti guy will have his own reality show or make a music album or something to that sort. Omer’s next album, Did dad touch me in the Anus again?

He totally looks like Michael in this one.

Michael Vick is back in the NFL. Now all he needs is a team to play for.

Vick, free after serving 18 months in prison for running a dogfighting ring, was reinstated with conditions by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Monday. He could participate in regular-season games as early as October.

Vick can immediately take part in preseason practices, workouts and meetings and can play in the final two preseason games—if he can find a team that will sign him. A number of teams have already said they would not.

Michael Jackson Memorial (STOD)

Alright guys, this is the first story of the day post of the year.

Because today is the day that Michael Jackson’s memorial will commence, I thought it would be fit for today’s story of the day to be on Michael. Today’s story isn’t even really a story, it is more of a question that I would like answered. I know that Michael revolutionized music, and yes, he was the King of Pop, but I wanted to know people’s opinions on whether his passing was the biggest ever in music’s history. I’ve been asking friends, family, and coworkers, and they ultimately agree that there is no bigger death then Michael Jackson.  Bigger than Elvis? Bigger than Jimi Hendrix? For you rap fans, bigger than Tupac or Biggie? (couldn’t think of anyone on top of my head). I’d like to hear peoples responses on which tragedy hit hardest. So, what do you people think?

Heres one of the few legacies left by Michael:
