Dear Michael Vick,
Consider this letter your official “Welcome Back” to society. A lot happened while you were away. America proudly elected its first black president. China wowed the world with a stirring Olympics Opening ceremonies. John Edwards became the most noteworthy politician since Bill Clinton to get busted for cheating on his wife, while Alex Rodriguez, Roger Clemens and Manny Ramirez became the latest baseball superstars to get busted for cheating on the game.
ER went off the air, something called Twitter took over the internet and the world’s economy pretty much went to pot. In fact, your filing for bankruptcy now seems more chic than disgraceful.
But what I’m really writing to tell you about, Michael, is your former team. There’s no easy way to say this, but the Atlanta Falcons got good right after you went behind bars. Like, really good. You may recall that when the judge sentenced you to 23 months back in December ’07, the Falcons were 3-10 and had just been abandoned by a clown of a coach named Bobby Petrino. It was a disaster. America had never pitied a billionaire like they did Arthur Blank.
