|Mike Vick's in Company of Others for Telling People They're Number One.
||[Nov. 28th, 2006|12:56 am]
"HEY, YOU'RE NUMBER ONE! YOU STAY CLASSY, (x)!" isn't the first time or the last time a person inserted their city (Atlanta) for variable x.
How would this compare to a fan chucking a beer on Ron Artest?
Or a similar situation with a fan vs. Dikembe Mutombo?
The only thing better would have been Vick dropping his droors and giving the fans either the ass or the crotch.
Apology and explanation of what was going on, from Mike Vick, plus a quote lifted from article:
The Falcons (5-6) heard loud boos following their fourth straight loss. Vick said that as he walked off the Georgia Dome field he heard an especially disturbing insult from a male fan.
"He just said certain things I won't say in front of this camera," Vick said at a news conference. "It was very inappropriate. I was down, upset, frustrated. I just did one thing I've never done through all the games I've ever lost, no matter how frustrated I've been after a game. I don't know where it came from, but the people who know me know that's not me and that's not my character."
Vick again apologized.
"I'm sorry and I apologize to all the young kids and to whoever saw me make that gesture," he said. "I just let my emotions get the best of me in that situation and it won't happen again."
To some people, this was a popular examination. This is also starting to draw more stuff from the woodwork, like the recent goings-on of Michael Irvin's comment of Tony Romo having some "slave" in him, plus the Michael Richards incident at the Los Angeles comedy club.
