Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway, took it upon himself to give Michael Vick the Key to the City of Dallas on Saturday at a Super Bowl event. Someone, somewhere, tell me this is a bad internet joke please. I think the city of Dallas is getting enough bad press due to the not so Super Bowl, but this is the most ridiculous thing I've heard since I read the Rangers wanted to trade Michael Young. Ok, I know that was just yesterday, but give me a break.
I won't talk about Vick being a convicted felon. Convicted of heinous acts of cruelty against animals. Oops, I talked about it.
I won't talk about Vick being the quarterback of one of the Dallas Cowboys' biggest rivals. Oops, I did it again.
Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert is distancing from the bad press, saying neither he, nor his office, authorized the actions of Caraway.
Say what you want about Vick paying his debt to society and that he's a different guy now. I don't care about all that because it's Philadelphia's problem and has nothing to do with Texas and where I live and work.
At least it didn't, until Caraway decided to drag Dallas into it.
