Michael Vick to Lobby for Law to Protect Animals

Dozens of fans applauded Vick as he joined several legislators at a news conference and crowded around him afterward seeking autographs and selfies.

Vick was a star quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons when he pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy charges in 2007 for his role in a dogfighting ring. He served nearly two years in prison. He has played in seven NFL seasons since, including five with the Philadelphia Eagles. The Hampton, Virginia, native is now a backup quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers and, off the field, an advocate for animal welfare.

He said he met separately with a group of children from York County before the news conference and urged the youngsters to talk about the importance of caring for animals.

“I know that I’m an enlightened advocate” for animal welfare, he said. “I was part of the problem when I was at my lowest. I made decisions to make change and I stand by them.”

The bill was introduced in September and is pending in a House committee. A summary offense is the most minor type of infraction in Pennsylvania, usually punishable by a fine.

Seventeen states have laws making it illegal to leave pets in vehicles on warm days, according to the Humane Society of the United States.

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom filed a court petition dismissing a divorce filing, but the reality TV star says that doesn’t mean they’re reconciling after the former NBA star was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel.

Kardashian says in an interview with People magazine that she halted the divorce to make medical decisions on Odom’s behalf.

In the heart of River North, Butler just purchased the 10,000 square foot mansion for $4.3 million. It includes a 750-bottle wine cellar, 3-car garage, spacious deck, ‘man cave’ and billiards table – one thing it didn’t have is a super swanky fish tank, but luckily that’s now changed.

What Animal Planet’s Wayde King and Brett Raymer revealed to him was a 6,000-pound epic boom box aquarium that even has speakers inside so his new fish can hear the music too.

Jets fan already has Marcus Mariota Jets jersey

If the New York Jets pull off a crazy trade during the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday and somehow end up with Marcus Mariota, there will be no one happier than this guy, who already owns a Mariota Jets jersey.

To get the former Oregon quarterback, the Jets would have to outmaneuver the Eagles, Browns and Chargers — and that’s only if the Titans would even be willing to budge from the No. 2 spot.

The problem for the Jets is that if the Titans are willing to trade, the Browns have more ammo to trade with and the Chargers could unload Philip Rivers.

Then there’s Chip Kelly, who would probably trade his entire roster and agree to name his first son “Titan” if Tennessee’s willing to make a deal with him for Mariota.

Anyway, I love this guy’s blind optimism, but I hope he still has the receipt.

If you want to go to the store and purchase a DeMarco Murray or Byron Maxwell jersey, no problem. Plenty are available as of April 8th at the Eagles Pro Shops in Cherry Hill, Philly, and Lancaster, according to Eliot Shorr-Parks.

“No doubt, no doubt,” Spadaro said. “It is available. Sam Bradford is available online. Sam Bradford, if there is a large demand for Sam Bradford—I think right now the Pro Shop—not in cahoots with Chip Kelly—but the Pro Shop is taking the approach that, look we just don’t do it with one-year contracts unless there is high demand.

“They know that DeMarco Murray has a five-year deal and he’s gonna be here for awhile,” Spadaro continued. “They went out and ordered jerseys. There is no conspiracy theory here. If the Eagles extend Sam Bradford, then there will be jerseys of Sam Bradford. The expectation right now, as their business decision, the fans are not rushing out to buy Sam Bradford jerseys.”

However, the Cowboys can’t wear that combo anymore because of a rule the NFL implemented last year that stipulates that teams can only wear one helmet this season, so the Cowboys weren’t allowed to switch from their standard silver helmets to the white helmets for Thanksgiving.
