He only communicates by snapping fingers at the staff as in come hither lesser humans. He amuses himself by pointing at things on the menu he wants and then snapping his fingers. He literaly snapped his fingers over and over and over and of course he thought he was just hilarious. Big Man on Campus. My friend said he has never been more embarassed for someone or for himself. I really hate stuff like that. Hope he never wins a title and the way he plays I don't think I have to worry.
You may want to ask your friend a few more questions about this story. Michael Vick left Virginia Tech at the end of his JUNIOR year and entered the NFL draft. It would have been difficult for your friend to have dinner with him during his SENIOR year at VT ... his senior year did not happen.

Re: Michael Vick vs. Old Habits

"Last year" and "senior year" are fairly synonymous. I don't really think that detracts from the plausibility of the story.

Yeah somebody already pointed that out. I guess it was his last year at school which was his junior year you know it was quite some time ago, but I remember I was on a golf course when I heard the story.

I'm not blaming it on success though, a smart and/or decent person would be able to see that such behavior is not beneficial long term.
on a positive note, up until now he's kept himself outta trouble other than the Ron Mexico thing, and I think he can be really good w/the right system (not the west coast) and decent recievers. If it weren't for all the hype, people would think he's a decent qb, just not a great one. Instead, due to all the media attention, people are starting to regard him as a failure, which I disagree with.
I was thinking the same thing about his sr. year. A friend of my sister represents Vick and would say quite the opposite of what he had said about him. Who knows!

Re: Michael Vick vs. Old Habits

All I can say, with all the stupid things our team has done in the past with free agency etc. At least we did not swap our first round pick with San Deigo and give up other picks which became (LT, Merriman and their kicker Kaeding) for Micheal "Coach Killer" Vick. who is over hyped and until the lengthen the field to included the frist three rows of the stands will never be a good passer. The guy can running (which is what runningback do) and he has a cannon of the arm, which is why he over throws his receivers by 5-10 yards, but he is a horrible QB and will never win the super bowl.

So Atlanta has given up on a chance to draft what could be the greatest RB in history (if he keeps going with the numbers he is producing) to get this worthless peice of crap. They also traded away one of the greatest QB's ever to play the game (Brett Farve). Makes me feel a little better about our mistakes

How did he revolutionize the water bottle? You can buy them on line. And whats with the idea of taken 16oz water bottle on a plane when the only containers allowed can hold no more than 3oz. He has to know that with as much flying as he does and why was he flying on one of those discount flyers? Just so many questions.

Re: Michael Vick vs. Old Habits

I heard it wasn't even Mike Vick. It was this Ron Mexico guy that looks like him.

unfortunately id imagine quite a large% of student atheletes smoke weed, and a large % of students. pro atheletes as well etc. im not suprised by this

Yeah, she isn't just looking for a payday. They should award her $1 and make her wait 2 years to get it. Idiot.

Don't rear end (pun intended) her, you will be in court for 3 years...

Re: Michael Vick vs. Old Habits

Does everyone really hate Vick this much or are you just jealous of him?

Athletes do stupid things just like regular people. The only difference is when they do it everyone hears about it.

Who cares about a water bottle or his brother, the guy is fun to watch (especially when Taylor violently slings him out of bounds).

What he did was wrong and I don't agree w/ it. But the problem with today's youth is not weed. I use to smoke it in college and so did 3/4ths of University of MD. and I turned out OK. I know plenty of responsible grown ups who smoke weed. I mean it's legal in Canada. Weed is not the type of drug that makes people violent. What's the difference between smoking weed and having a vodka and cranberry? Both give you a buzz and make you feel relaxed. I personally don't care if anyone does it behind closed doors. But getting on a plane is different story.
