After Tashard Choice's Dallas Cowboys lost to hated rival Philadelphia last night, the running back was captured on national television asking for -- and receiving -- Michael Vick's autograph.

People got upset.

So Choice took to Twitter to defend himself.

"Listen y'all I know vick. That glove was for my nephew who is 3. Not for me," he tweeted. "I don't care abbout that we all exchange autographs. That's so stupid for people to get mad at.

"vick is his [Choice's nephew] fav player. Has nothing to do with how I play on da feel. Y'all are a trip foreal"

Vick said this was "probably" the first time something like this has happened to him, but signed because Choice is a "great" guy.

This morning, Choice addressed the issue once more.

"If its anybody that cares about winning and the d cowboys its me. I apologize to the people it was just an innocent jesture for my nephew," he explained.

Choice is a native Georgian and played at Georgia Tech while Vick was with the Atlanta Falcons.

Stick Man

Anaheim Ducks' Bobby Ryan had an eventful minute against Minnesota yesterday.

I won't even try to explain all that happened. Let's just say there's a fair amount of stick hijinx afoot.

Watch the clip and have the amazed announcers break down the sequence.

Oh, boy

What do you think of it?
