Now on Internet: It’s Mike Vick Injury Bingo! (ouch)

Ooof! That's going to leave a mark. But how about a game, MV7? (AP photo)

That's going to leave a mark. But how about a game, MV?

Let me preface this by declaring that I am NOT pulling against Michael Vick during his post-prison career, which has the potential to be one of the greatest comeback stories in professional sports history (although not at this rate).

OK, that disclaimer out of the way, this is kind of funny.

Vick’s tendency to take so many hits and keep getting injured, particularly in this NFL exhibition season, has reached mocking level. He hurt the thumb on his throwing hand in Philadelphia’s first preseason game. He had ribs crushed Monday against New England. All X-rays, MRIs and CT scans have been negative, but the guy has spent more time in examination rooms than taking snaps in games. (Two-game stats: 4 for 7, 11 yards, 0 touchdowns, 1 sack, 2 injuries.)

So that prompted Robert Littal from the website, BlackSportsOnline, to post a game: “Mike Vick Injury Bingo.” The game’s winning squares include generic injuries like, “Concussion” and “Rib injury,” but it adds others like, “Eagle Fan Hits Him With Battery,” and, of course, “Dog Bite.”

Take a look.

(The judges probably will let you get away with “Broken Finger” for the sprained thumb, so we’re off to a good start on this bingo card.)

I would bet it was viewed a lot but I think MV7 to Atlantans is about as old and tired as Robert Nkemdiche is to college football fans. Just my opinion.

The thing I wonder is what kind of money will be bet this year on NFL football with replacement refs.
I wouldn’t put a dime on a game after what I have seen so far.

I notice all the “hate Matt Ryan, he chokes” crowd has been eerily silent in the wake of yet another Vick injury.

Mike Vick cannot receive an injury close to the injuries he inflicted, and ordered inflicted, on those innocent dogs. I hope he suffers a career-ending injury. The sooner, the better. The man is a vile creature.

Mr. Schultz,

WE STILL CARE ABOUT MIKE THE B!TCH VICK! THE PROBLEM IS THOUGH WE ONLY “CARE” WHEN HE GETS HURT OR SOMETHING NEGATIVE HAPPENS TO HIM PERSONALLY!! I’M SORRY IF THIS OFFENDS ANYONE BUT IN MY OPINION THERE IS NOTHING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO THIS PLAGUE OF A MAN THAT WILL EVER GET AN INCH OF SYMPATHY FROM MYSELF AND I’M SURE MOST FALCON FANS OR DOG LOVERS!!! LIKE THE WISE PREVIOUS POSTER STATED, KARMA IS A B!TCH

Jealousy, Schultz, is NOT attractive. I guess when you finally get out of your mom’s basement and get a date with a “real live girl”; you’ll get over your insane jealousy of anyone who:

(a) has more money than you (that includes ALL 11th graders with jobs at McDonalds).

(b) Look better than you (that also includes the dogs you keep mentioning about in connection with Vick).

(c) Are younger than you (that includes darn near everyone who was born after the Civil War).

and…..

(d) Can actually DO the things that you can only write about, (IOW those that can DO those that can’t write hate filled, jealousy riddled columns mocking REAL ATHLETES; while their fat, wimpy azz can’t even jog around the block without risking a heart attack).

Get help Schultz. Get help.

You can say one thing positive about the guy…………he was actually trying to find an open receiver to make a big play when he took that one in the rib cage…………..most quarterbacks would have just went down and ate the loss……………………………………………

If Schultz can go a whole MONTH without putting down/belittling/ nit picking these three players I’d not only chill out, but I’d probably die of shock!

Mike Vick
LeBron James
Dwight HOward
**Honorable Mention Kobe Bryant

What do these 3 ALL have in common? They’re all RICH. They’re all ATHLETIC. They all can get MORE WOMEN than Schultz in his lifetime; and they all COULD CARE LESS about Schultz.

I think he keeps mentioning them over and over and over and over again, because he’s secretly seeking attention. Either that or he’s a mama’s boy, crybaby looser. Take your pick.

HE HAS BEEN A DAMN GOOD JOURNALIST FOR THIS CITY AND HE DESERVES A LOT MORE CREDIT!!! BEFORE CASTING ASPERSIONS ONE SHOULD ASK THEMSELVES, “COULD I ACTUALLY PERFORM HIS PARTICULAR JOB?”

THE ANSWER WOULD UNCATEGORICALLY…WAIT FOR IT…HELLLL NO! HAPPY READING!!
