Michael Vick, Nike Reunited After Four Years Apart

Michael Vick continues to make the most of his fifth or sixth chance, having earned his way back into the house of the Swoosh. Considering Nike made even post-decision LeBron James briefly look like an all right guy and turned Tiger Woods' collapse into an admonishment from beyond, I'm kind of excited to see what they come up with for Vick.

And good for him, by the way. I'd like to live in a country in which both the Atlanta Falcons and the fallen god of the city can succeed, as long as the Falcons succeed just a little bit more than he does. Now go get that paper.

The best part of Vick and Nike doing business again, of course, will be the sworn boycotts of Nike products, which will do nothing but make people feel better about themselves. If there's one thing Phil Knight really hates, it's his ads being treated as more than just ads, right?
