We posted a brief item earlier this morning regarding a supposed blog from Mike Vick, which appeared Sunday at GlobalGrind.com.
The Eagles have advised us that the blog isn’t Vick’s, based on a direct denial from Vick himself.
So now the question that we and others are putting to GlobalGrind.com is whether Vick did in fact write and/or submit the blog entry.
The story becomes a lot more interesting in light of the fact that GlobalGrind.com is partially owned by Russell Simmons, so it’s not some fly-by-night operation. And while the blog entry is persuasively remorseful, contrite, and passionate, the possibility that Vick isn’t being straight with the Eagles about it would amount to incredibly risky behavior, given that owner Jeffrey Laurie made it more than abundantly clear on Friday that Vick has zero margin for error.
Given that his overall capacity for honesty represents the nucleus of the concerns about Vick moving forward, any utterance that doesn’t represent the whole truth and nothing but the truth could be enough to get him bounced out of Philadelphia.
So stay tuned on this one. We’ve called GlobalGrind.com, but the number listed at the web site goes into the voice mail of an office manager whose mailbox is full. We’ve also sent e-mails to various departments at GlobalGrind.com in the hopes of getting a clear statement as to whether Vick submitted the blog that appears prominently at the top of the site’s home page, under the headline in all caps, “WHAT I DID WAS HORRENDOUS.”
