Mike Vick tying the knot next month

AP

The maturation of Mike Vick continues.

According to the New York Post, Vick will marry long-time fiancée Kijafa Frink on June 30, four days after his 32nd birthday.

The wedding will occur at the Fountainbleau at Miami Beach.  Invited guests include Tony Dungy, agent Joel Segal, Eagles coach Andy Reid, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, and more teammates.

Vick has made major strides since leaving federal prison in 2009, staying out of trouble and away from all controversy (with the exception of an incident that occurred at his 30th birthday party in 2010).  Still a young man by non-football standards, Vick seems to have his life on the right track, and for that he deserves to be recognized and emulated.

  1. Of course, because married men never make mistakes at all. Right, Bill Clinton, Larry Craig, Anthony Weiner, etc etc etc?

  2. I wonder how the future Mr. and Mrs. Mexico get around the whole HERPES thing? Does she even know? EWWW

  3. Vick seems to have his life on the right track, and for that he deserves to be recognized and emulated.

    Wow.

    Just, Wow.

  4. Emulated? Sure, I’ll take a couple $100 mil contracts and get applauded for finally living up to normal citizen standards after pissing away my talent for a decade. Sign me up, Florio.

  5. Congrats mike Vick. All the haters get a life. My middle finger to all of u. I can’t wait for Vick to have a great year and shut u small-minded a-holes up.

    I agree, he should be emulated for doing what’s expected from him as a human being. He is my hero for doing what 99% of society does each and every day, staying out of trouble with the law…

  7. Congratulations Mike & Kijafa. May you have many a wonderful day together. Never mind the negative people that would make fun of what should be your happiest day. They are just jealous that their life is miserable and they have nothing to look forward to except to try to bring others down to their level of disparity & emptiness.

    He deserves to be recognized and emulated for finally doing what people in a civilized society are expected to do? I’ll pass on that suggestion.

  9. Emulated? Really…. So let’s see. Get out of jail, only attend one party where a shooting occurs, only skip 5 or 6 events, some of which you received prior compensation for and most of which benefited charities. I could care less about the dog thing but I’m sure your not yelling to your son,” Be more like Mike Vick.”

  10. Would think he would wanna wait another month…get married during the dog days of summer.

  11. not good news philly fans tom brady 3-0 in super bowls before tying the knot

    and Vick is 0-0… so what it your point…..
    you could also argue that Brady is 3-0 before they werent allowed to cheat anymore

  12. He’s antique/outdated and that goes for VY too. It’s all about Cam Newton and Robert Griffin III now! They will break the mold and win Superbowls brother.

    Get off your freaking high horse. Its DONE!

    Get over it, and get on with your life, a-hole. Hope this guy wins two freakin Super Bowls, to shut these people up.

  14. 18 months without a felony, gun fight, or known STD. I hope he officiates at my wedding.

  15. Was I mad at Mike Vick when the animal abuse incidents came to light? Absolutely. How mad? My No. 7 Virginia Tech and Falcons jerseys ended up at Goodwill in a matter of days. Was I quick to forgive? No. But I’ll tell you this, the past 3 years Vick has showed more class than 95 percent of the lightweights who responded to this article. And as far as emulating Vick goes? Absolutely, a potentially huge role model for folks (like many PFT readers obviously) who need to see living examples of once destructive individuals whose lives dramatically changed for the better. God’s grace and peace to you.

  16. “They are just jealous that their life is miserable and they have nothing to look forward to except to try to bring others down to their level of disparity & emptiness.”

    That’s absolutely hysterical coming from a guy who trolls every NFC East post. I wish the young couple well, but buddybowl, you need to look up the word “hypocrisy”.

  17. All you Vick worshippers can give up any hope of him winning a Super Bowl. I know the fact that “he run real good” impresses you way beyond anything Manning or Brady has done, but the guy’s a dumbass—athletically awesome, but not much of a quarterback. Enjoy him in the “What Could’ve Been” Hall of Fame.

    You do realize the only reason he regrets what he did was because he got caught? Maybe you should get off of your high horse

  19. isn’t she the same person that tweeted about wanting to plank on $100 mil last season?

    Oh god .. Little Mike Vicks……

    ———

    Like you don’t think there are already a half dozen or so “Little Mike Vicks” running around?

  21. I wonder if it’ll be a slipknot? Perhaps he’ll hang himself and claim he didn’t know it was wrong… I now pronounce you Mr. and Mrs. Dimented Scumbag!!!

  22. Seriously people? This is a happy topic about a dude getting married and just read these comments… I know your trying to make Vick look like the dude with character flaws but the garbage comments I have been reading indicates its you guys who have the character flaws and Vick is “ABOVE” you. Yeah that just hurts and drives you crazy hearing that huh? Well if you don’t agree than prove it! Prove your better! Cause all you do is make immature joke after immature joke and hating and judging someone on things that happened like 4+ years ago when the man was already punished anyways and has done nothing but good things for the community and himself since he got out… Seriously… Get mature people, your only making your self’s look bad, not Mike Vick

  23. “Vick seems to have his life on the right track, and for that he deserves to be recognized and emulated.”

    Or we could recognize and emulate the people that didn’t facilitate the torture of dogs for years.

    Btw, getting married doesn’t have anything to do with the quality of a person’s character; Hitler was married. (I’m not comparing Vick to Hitler, just refuting the implication that being married is some how evidence of getting one’s life together.)

    Hey folks, I was think we could all pitch in to get the couple a puppy…
    ============================

    “I was think”? Sounds like somebody should get an education before they start trying to slam someone else.

    And if you dislike Vick for his past, looks like you condone it by offering to give him a puppy. And in your little joke, what’s he supposed to do with this puppy? So you are just as bad as you portray him to be. If you can’t understand this, or any of the words are too hard, get mommy to help, when she gets up at 2:00 PM.

  25. Not every PFT post deserves a wisecrack response. Congratulations, Mike Vick!!

    not good news philly fans tom brady 3-0 in super bowls before tying the knot
    ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
    Nope, they were 3-1 with an unmarried TB. Though if your point is that Gisele is the debil, I’m on board with that!

    I hope Vick invited Goodell too. Goodell has as much to do with his reintegration into the league as Dungy does.

    MF that last point is a little rich for me. I’d rather kids emulate a guy like Patrick Willis who had a crap life and never turned to filthy acts in the first place and is so goodhearted that he maintains a relationship with his scumbag “father” who made life hell for him and his siblings. THAT guy has amazing character and is extremely inspiring, even for adults.

  27. Just like all other professional athletes, I don’t believe he needs to be emulated. But good on him for keeping his nose clean for the past 3 years and congrats on tying the knot. Some of you folks need to get a grip…

    ———————————————————-

    Buddy ….. Mike Vick IS a dude with “character flaws”.

  29. @o0omorriso0o, Never mind the miserable, that claim they hate Vick but take the time to spew their hate. Let them have their 15 second of fame behind the sheet called blog names. All this talk and this trash all of them accumulated don’t have the finaces or success for anyone to care what they think. Let them hate while Vick enjoys his wonderful life. That is what hurts them the most that he got a second chance and made the most of it while they sit in their misery. “Sticks and stones may break my bones but WORDS will never harm me.” Let them keep talking, they show how ignorant they are.

  30. People are talking negitive about this and they know nothing… Mike and his finance have been togther for YEARS not to mention she stuck by him for all his struggles… This is a great thing for them, anyone that see this as a negitive needs their head examined!!!

  31. Please correct typo.. change emulation to immulation.
    Sincerely,
    All Dogs with IQ Higher Than Vick
    (That should include about all of them)

  32. Saying that he should be recognized and emulated for kicking his dog-killing habit is like saying that anyone else should be recognized and emulated for, you know, not killing any dogs in the first place.

    Garbage in, garbage out.

  33. “He is my hero for doing what 99% of society does each and every day, staying out of trouble with the law…”

    While I don’t think Mike Vick should be emulated 99% of society does not stay out of trouble with the law. That’s really stupid. I’d say 7/10 people have been in trouble with the law at one point, not counting the people that have gotten away with breaking the law.
