Who is michael vick dating now
It fails to take into account that switching someone's race changes his entire existence.In making Vick white, you have him born to different parents. When you alter his race, it's like those Back to the Future movies where someone goes back in time, inadvertently changes one small thing about his parents' dating history and then the person starts to disappear. I don't just mean that sort of football where you have to count to four-Mississippi before you can rush the quarterback, nearly everything breaks down and it's all great fun. Vick's style reminds me of Allen Iverson -- the speed, the court sense, the sharp cuts, the dekes, the swag.I'm not saying that a black QB who stands in the pocket ain't playing black.
In those breathtaking moments when the Eagles QB abandons the pocket and takes off, it feels as if he's thumbing his nose at the whole regimented, militaristic ethos of the game.Bob Marley's "Redemption Song" is playing underneath because the humbled protagonist has finally overcome his personal demons and has begun living up to his athletic promise.And to those who believe we should judge a man by how he responds when dealing with the worst life has to offer -- with how he climbs after he hits rock bottom -- Michael Vick has become heroic. It's possible, but it's far less likely because what made Vick stand out among dogfighters is less race than class.The deep pockets of an NFL star led to a kennel that was too big not to fail eventually.
