As we packed up the boxes on Tuesday, loaded up the truck, and then moved to Beverleeee, we overlooked a couple of developments regarding quarterback Mike Vick.
Vick has ditched the $10 per hour construction job that he started upon transferring from prison to house arrest in May 2009. He’s now working for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula. He is serving as an aide in summer youth sporting programs.
(We strongly recommend that none of the kids lag behind or otherwise demonstrate an inability to participate successfully in the various sporting programs.)
The change in jobs does not create any issues with the terms of his house arrest. As long as he is employed, Vick will be meeting the requirements of his house arrest.
Vick will be released from house arrest as of July 21. It remains to be seen whether he will continue to be employed, or whether he’ll simply live off the fortune that he amassed and avoided squandering during his NFL career.
Um. He’ll probably remain employed.
