Vick To Appear On Oprah This Thursday

During Super Bowl weekend Michael Vick was given the key to the city of Dallas by Dallas Councilman and Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway. It was a move that sparked much controversy and discussion as to how Vick, and his return to NFL stardom, should be viewed.

Now, the Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback whose name became synonymous with dogfighting is scheduled to be a guest on the “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”

The daytime talk show host’s interview with Vick is set to air Thursday.

Officials with Chicago-based Harpo Productions say the interview will cover Vick’s time in prison, his work with the Humane Society and his return to the NFL.

Vick served 18 months in prison over a dogfighting operation based on his property in Surry County, Va. In 2007, several dogs were seized from his property.

He was reinstated to the NFL for the 2009 season and has been doing public-service work, including with the Humane Society.

    Oprah who? The same Oprah that backed Obama for President? For such a smart woman she sure knows how to pick losers, especially someone like Vick, who has yet to show some real remorse instead of rehearsed speeches.

    I guess being able to throw/catch a ball makes you above moral standards set by society? He spent time in jail, so I guess he has “learned his lesson” and he should continue on with his life and promoting himself. We’ll over look the dog fighting, which we all know is barbaric, and forget that he smashed the brains of his dogs in their shulls be bashing them into concrete, only if he didn’t feel like hanging them, cutting them and shocking them after throughly wetting them down to make sure the shock REALLY severly burned them and destroyed their neurological functions. All that’s no biggie cause he said some speeches about animals that his PR specialist wrote for him. You know what the greatest indicator of known psychopaths is (serial killers, ect)? They tortured animals first. But maybe we should over look that now because he’s on OPRAH! HE HAS TO BE A GOOD GUY!
