Breaking News: Michael Vick is Not Smart

Herpes Makes You Stupid

There's dumb, then there's Ron Mexico dumb. According to The Smoking Gun:

JANUARY 18--Miami police are investigating NFL star Michael Vick after airport screeners yesterday seized a water bottle from him at a security checkpoint and later discovered that the bottle included a "concealed compartment" that appeared to contain a small amount of marijuana.

Tricky Vick's "water bottle"

According to a Miami-Dade Police Department report, the Atlanta Falcons quarterback was "reluctant to turn over his water bottle during the screening process" at Miami International Airport (the athlete was booked on an AirTran flight to Atlanta).

First things first. What the hell is Vick doing flying AirTran/ValueJet? This genius is in the midst of a 10 year $120 million deal. You'd think he might could spring for Delta business class over the AirTran cattle car. I mean, you've tricked the Atlanta Falcons, you got your head coach fired, so you might as well fly first class, right?

I'm sure this whole thing is just some kind of misunderstanding. He was just holding the water bottle for a friend.

Ode to Senor Mexico:


  1. What's the big deal? Like we didn't already know he liked to smoke weed. I mean, he's been in the league for 6 years and they still don't allow him to audible.

  2. Looks like there was no pot in Vick's bottle according to a report at ESPN.

    So will everyone please apologize to Vick.

    And for the record, I have no use for Vick but in a way I am glad that this has blown up in the media's face!

    Next time maybe everyone will wait until all the evidence is in---but I doubt it.

  3. Oh, wow! I looked it up.

    Somebody with the Falcons said there wasn't any weed in there!


    Great source.

    Yeah, and guys that carry around water bottles with secret compartments never have anything to hide!?!

    It was probably just hemp.
