""I will redeem myself" said Vick, "I have to."
Vick wasn't specific about the acts he was sorry for, but declared, "Dogfighting is a terrible thing. I reject it."
Between apologies to everyone from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank -- to all the kids who used to look up to him, Vick declared that he's found Jesus and has turned his life over to God.
"I was ashamed and totally disappointed in myself, to say the least. I want to apologize to all the young kids out there for my immature acts. What I did was very immature, so that means I need to grow up."
Vick also dropped part of his apology in the third person saying, "I totally ask for forgiveness and understanding as I move forward to be a better Michael Vick the person, not the football player."
During the presser, Vick made it clear several times that he never "pointed the finger" and is prepared to face the consequences of his actions.
After speaking for nearly five minutes, Vick left the podium without taking any questions."
What the hell is it with folk that the minute the shit hits the fan they suddenly dial up Jesus' gaff and want to hang out? Lohan did it after crashing her car while off her face, Paris Hilton waffled on about meeting Jesus and doing each other's hair while she was in prison for being an idiot and a spoilt brat. Reverend Ted Haggard ditched Jesus and went to hang out/do crystal meth with a male prostitute, then got caught and went hightailing it back to Jesus faster then I can type 'busted.'
Poor old Jesus, he's like that kid that lives on the street that no one really likes, but they'll hang around with him when they have fights with their real friends, but as soon as they make up with their pals he gets dumped and has to spend the rest of his time building forts alone and talking to his dog a lot. Seriously, if I was Jesus I'd just say, 'dude, don't call me, okay, I"m busy, I've got real friends of my own now. I had to raise them from the dead, but their mine. Dig your own ass out of trouble.'
That's what I would do. Then I'd totally smote them. Smote them like a fox.
