    "The Longest Yard: Yard Dogz"?

    Apparently Michael Vick has all the makings of a Paul Crewe during his time in Fed Pen...

    ESPN - In letters to Blank, jailed Vick says he's staying in shape - NFL

    When they choose sides for football games in the yard at the United States Penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kan., Michael Vick is the popular pick.


    Twice for the same game, it seems.


    In an interview with the New York Daily News, Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank said Vick is playing ball in prison to keep his body in shape, his arm limber and to pass the time.
    "Apparently, there was a prison football team and he played quarterback for both sides," Blank told the Daily News in Monday's editions.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Re: "The Longest Yard: Yard Dogz"?

    The prison already refuted this article... sorry I didn't get the link, but basically they said the prison football teams only play in the fall, so the only thing he could be doing is playing some light pick up ball in the yard. Blank then says he misunderstood or something.

    Besides, we thought he had bad mechanics before - imagine the bad habits Vick would pick up in unorganized, prison football... :)
