Michael Vick is High on H2O: NFL says No

Vick’s “thirst-quencher”…wink, wink

RSJ Update: ESPN is reporting on Sunday that Vick was not carrying marijuana in Miami and will be exonerated on this incident.

 Just when you think you’ve read, seen and heard it, life just tosses you another doozy. On Wednesday, Michael Vick , passing through security at Miami International Airport, was forced to discard an Aquafina water bottle he was carrying because it was larger than the 3 oz. container limit being enforced. It was later discovered that the bottle had a hidden section that contain remnants of a substance that smelled like marijuana. When the sections were connected, the water in the other portion of the bottle made it look like the bottle was 3/4th filled with water.

 

Where do you buy these things??

 

No charges were filed and Miami police it could be weeks before it was decided whether there should be any charges at all.

 

You know the Aquafina marketing folks are working overtime trying to figure out a catchy way to capitalize on this.

  1. Ron Mexico holding a water bottle with a false bottom? I used to think he just had sleepy eyes (really, no joke), but now I know better. Of course the Raiders will probably make that trade we were talking about earlier. Yeesh.

    I’m guessing nothing happens to Vick legally.

    However, how pissed would you be if you are Blank and your franchise guy, Vick is caught with this piece? Just shows an immaturity beyond words.

    Not that I advocate doing that stuff, but if you do, do it from home. Don’t transport your wares via plane. You can get yourself a new piece, leave it at the hotel. You have some coin, you can get a new one. …….. Jeez…

    Roy

    He was being crucified on ESPN Radio today. Even worse than the Myspace incident.

  5. Ron Mexico says:

    Good points there Drk619. Valtrex will do the trick, so I am lead to believe by the commercials. It’s a brand new day!!

    Barkley slammed Vick tonight on TNT.
    He should get criticized for this.

    I read it this morning, but I haven’t been able to see or watch anything about it. It’s a real blow to his image. And I’m sure some of those radio people started making comparisons between he and his brother. And I’m sure the Ron Mexico stuff and the middle finger incident were brought up. Those were slight blemishes. This one’s a crime and it puts the label “drug user” on Vick. Granted, if someone had put a gun to my head a week ago and made me guess whether or not Vick smoked weed, I’d have gone 70/30 on “yes.” I think a lot of athletes do. A couple years ago Baron Davis said that 85% of NBA players use marijuana in the off-season. But it’ll matter more because it’s Vick, the super-talented $134 million quarterback who’s quarterbacking skills are questioned every other snap. The one who’s got the dirtbag little brother whom he’s supposed to be trying to mold. Also, the fact that his plan was kind of intricate. He ain’t just smoking weed, he apparently attempted to smuggle it. Which makes you wonder if he’d pulled it off before. Which then makes you wonder how long he’s been going on with this. Aquafina bottle with a secret compartment. C’mon, doesn’t that sound pathetic? He needs it that badly and he’s willing to risk that much.

    I agree with Juan. He won’t get any real punishment (hell, Chris Herny is still a free man), but it hurts his reputation.

    And not to go there, but I’m gonna go there: I wish I could read minds. I’d like to know how many of the white members of the media, after hearing about this thought, “Uh-huh. Another black athlete in trouble for doing something stupid and drug-related. You’d never hear about something like this happening to Peyton Manning.” And I wouldn’t blame them for thinking it. I do.

    These guys need to grow the hell up. Or at least smarten up and indulge in their vices in private. It doesn’t take much to know that it’s not wise to bring illegal drugs into a building full of drug-sniffing canines, high-tech metal detectors, security guards trained to thwart smugglers, and Federal authorities. Just get high BEFORE you head to the airport.

    SJH: Agreed with all that he said there.

    However, the media never brings up the fact that while at U of Tenn., Manning sexually harrassed a female trainer. Had to pay her. Then had to pay her off again when he slandered her.

    For Manning’s transgressions, you have to dig , but not very far. Vick’s sadly are all too obvious and public.

    See below from an excerpt from libertypost.org

    Go all the way back into Manning’s previous football incarnation, when he was a god-like superstar QB at the University of Tennessee. It is on that campus where his karmic problems may have started.

    A young lady by the name of Jamie Ann Naughright from New Jersey did not come from a well-known family like Manning. The first person in her family to attend college, she graduated from UT with a degree in exercise physiology and a master’s and doctorate in health education.

    After working for the Lady Vols athletic teams, Naughright was transferred to men’s athletics. In fact, she became the first female associate trainer in the university’s history. This is where her intersection with the great QB started.

    Manning, already an All-SEC quarterback, was one of the players under Naughright’s care. Trying to play a juvenile practical joke, Manning pulled down his pants to moon a fellow athlete, cross country runner Malcolm Saxon. Naughright just happened to be in eye’s length of “the moon,” according to Manning.

    Naughright and Saxon tell a far more graphic story. In fact, in a 2002 letter to Manning, shared with the court in Tennessee, Saxon, the intended target of the mooning, wrote: “Bro, you have tons of class, but you have shown no mercy or grace to this lady who was on her knees seeing if you had a stress fracture.”

    Naughright and Saxon contend that the mooning was actually an incident of far greater vulgarity.

    Naughright described herself as examining Manning’s foot to see why he was in pain. She was positioned on her knees behind him, when, entirely unprovoked, Manning pulled down his pants and sat on her head and face. In a deposition, Naughright was more specific about the incident, but let’s just say that it was much more than just a mooning.

    Within hours, Naughright reported this to the Sexual Assault Crisis Center in Knoxville. She ended up the villain at the university, and ultimately agreed to leave Tennessee in a settlement that paid her $300,000.

    That should have been the end of this sordid tale, and maybe the beginning of a better karmic tale for Manning. But, Manning couldn’t leave it alone.

    By 1998, Naughright seemed to have gotten back on track at Florida Southern College. She had become the director of the Athletic Training Educational Program and an assistant professor.

    According to papers in a later filing, Naughright was described as being a highly respected program director, and her supervisor Kathleen Benn, recommended Naughright for an exemplary salary increase, the highest increase in the school’s promotional system.

    At this time, Manning and his father, Archie, co-authored “Manning: A Father, His Sons, and a Football Legacy.” This book, for some reason, led to yet another square-off between Manning and Naughright.

    Manning chose to take total exception to Naughright and Saxon’s account of what happened back in Knoxville. While not mentioning her by name, Manning says, “I did it [the mooning] thinking the trainer wasn’t where she would see. Even when she did see, it seemed like something she’d have laughed at, considering the environment, or shrugged off as harmless. Crude maybe, but harmless.”

    Naughright, who Manning characterized in the book as having a “vulgar mouth,” was suddenly back in a limelight she didn’t deserve and hadn’t asked for. Copies of the book were all over the campus where she worked and her supervisor turned on her with a vengeance.

    Benn had praised Naughright and recommended the highest raise possible, but was suddenly referring to her as “demanding, hostile and vindictive.” Just as suddenly, Naughright was demoted and removed as the program coordinator.

    What Manning said in his book wreaked havoc a second time on her life and wrecked her career again. This time Naughright proceeded legally against both Mannings, Peyton and Archie, and the publisher, Harper Collins, for defamation of character.

    Manning’s attorney tried to get the case dismissed, but Circuit Court Judge Harvey Kornstein of Polk County, Fla., ruled there was enough evidence in depositions to proceed before a jury.

    Shortly afterward, the Mannings and Harper Collins settled out of court with Naughright. In case you are counting, Manning is 0-2 vs. Naughright.

    Michael Vick is innocent until proven guilty. Jesus once told a lynch mob determined to stone a young women caught in the act of adultery, “He who is without sin, cast the first stone” (Paraphrase) Unlike on this blog, the men in this bible account did not throw a stone. They dropped their stones and walked away guilty. Stop throwing stones!
