I was pleasantly surprised yesterday morning to hear that Vick re-signed to Nike.
Why? No, not because he's black.
Because he's shown true remorse, and has handled the whole redemption journey like a responsible young man who "get's it." He seems to truly understand what was taken from him for his mistake, and he's turned it into a positive thing by giving back, donating time to charities, and grasping the fact that it's not all about him.
"But he just has a great PR team," you say. I agree with you. That certainly plays a part. But at least this guy's smart enough to take their advice.
