The last time we heard about Michael Vick hosting a party, his former dog fighting co-defendant got shot. So some eyebrows were raised this week when it was reported that Vick was hosting another party during Super Bowl week.
But Tony Dungy, who has served as a mentor to Vick, says that party isn’t happening.
“He’s not,” Dungy said when asked on the Dan Patrick Show why Vick was hosting a party. “He is not going to be attending. I don’t know where it started or what, but he’s not going to be there. . . . I think he understands it’s something that’s just not worth it to him.”
The Eagles have also said Vick won’t be attending. Vick hasn’t commented publicly.
Vick apparently initially agreed to serve as the host for a party, but thought better of it when he thought of the potential consequences. Sounds like a good decision, even if it’s a disappointment for people who planned to attend the party, which was billed as “Super Bowl — Dallas Dynasty 2011 — The Michael Vick Experience.”
