Does President Obama have Michael Vick on his fantasy team? The 44th President of the United States called Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffery Lurie to thank him for signing the notorious quarterback and giving him a second chance.
It’s a good thing too, Vick is the leading candidate for the NFL’s MVP and has helped the Eagles to the NFC Division title. Obama spoke to Lurie after he announced he would be adding solar panels to Eagles’ stadium Lincoln Financial Field.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Peter King, the President told Lurie, “It’s never a level playing field for prisoners when they get out of jail.” Lurie said Obama thought, “We did something on such a national stage that showed our faith in giving someone a second chance after such a major downfall.”
After all, America is built on second chances, just don’t let Vick Bo!
