Up for auction: Take a tour of the house that Michael Vick built -- and then promptly vacated

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Associated Press, not usually known for its flair for the dramatic, went with this lede on its story about the pending auction of Michael Vick's Duluth, Ga. home: "For sale: the remains of an American success story gone horribly wrong."

Well, that's one way to put it.

Vick was supposed to serve part of his remaining sentence in a halfway house, but due to lack of space will be allowed to return to his home in Hampton, Va. as early as May 21.
The sale of the home -- which requires a minimum bid of $3.2 million -- will help to pay some of the beleaguered former Falcon quarterback's debt. This, again according to the AP, is "the cold, hard business of bankruptcy."

Last month, we got a mixed reaction when we asked whether you'd welcome Vick to Chicago if the Bears were to pursue him. The first two comments we got on that post pretty much sum up the range of reaction we got:

"I will never watch another Bears game if they hire Michael Vick," to the slightly more accepting, "Yes! Yes! Yes!"
