    No, he didn’t call to discuss Vick. He called to discuss the Eagles’ use of green energy at the Linc, and the conversation happened to turn to Vick.

    OMFG, this story is blowing up. I posted this because, well, we are all Eagles fans (and if you’re not, talk to the hand). Anywho, Twitter is abuzz and pundits and putting their two cents in. Amazing, simply amazing.

    Favre gets pass after pass (drug addiction and penis showing) from the media and the public, but kill some dog and shiiiiiiiit, you’re the next Jeffrey Dahmer.
