Yup, someone actually wore a Vick jersey to the flyball tournament this past weekend. I thought my head was going to explode. He is a flyballer, and runs a dog in flyball.
He was approached by our very own Jenn (fenella), who very nicely told him that his shirt was upsetting people and his response was that he was wearing it to see how many unsolicited comments he could get. So he was just being a jackass...and wearing it to upset people on purpose. Not because there was a game today and he supports the team, not because he thinks Vick "did his time"...nope, just wore it to be a dickhead. He thought it was funny.
John spoke to the regional director, who then told him the same thing Jenn did...but had of course no authority to make him take it off. Of course he has every right to wear such a thing...but really, who does that crap? What was also upsetting to us was that not only was he being a dick, but his team just stood around with him, and his wife (with two young kids) started off with a "yes, but..." before another teammate of ours cut her off and said..."there's no excuse for that" and walked away.
Our team was going to bring in some jumper cables to make our point...but we didn't want everything to get out of hand...
If anyone would like to contact this team...here's their contact info on their website. http://www.unitedwefly.org/contact.php
