Report: Vick wasn't at 4th of July party he was to host
One of the tidbits that struck us when news first broke of the shooting of Quanis Phillips was that it was the first 30th birthday party in what was supposed to be a string of celebrations for Michael Vick.
Now, there have been no links criminally between Vick and the shooting of Phillips, a co-defendant in his federal dogfighting trial, but at the least Vick is guilty of terrible judgment throwing a huge public bash for himself.
There haven’t been any public Vick celebrations since and then word broke that Vick was to host an “All White” celebration on Sunday in Washington, D.C. That is the same “All White” theme there was for his birthday party at Guadalajara in Virginia Beach, Va. Robert Littal of BlackSportsOnline.com broke the news on the bash at The Park.
The host, apparently, never made it to the bash however. Mike Florio of PFT reported that Vick not only wasn’t at the party – he wasn’t in the Nation’s Capital. Instead, Vick was in Philadelphia at a barbecue. No word on whether he was decked out in all white. Littal reported that Marcus Vick did attend the party and it was by private invitation.
Once again, the Philadelphia Eagles backup quarterback isn’t guilty of anything but the sooner he retires from the party promotion business, the better off he is going to be. This is another head scratcher that surely doesn’t please commissioner Roger Goodell, the man who controls the future to Vick’s NFL career. So Vick might want to cancel any future All White parties or any other type of gathering he's promoting.
