No Rest For The Vick-ed

On returning home from the cinema last night (I’d been to see "Bourne Free" the heart-warming story of a woman who releases a domesticated CIA Agent into the wild) the local sports network was reporting an update on the Michael Vick legal Vick proceedings. I actually have some sympathy with Vick since I myself was heavily involved in the European dog fighting scene for a while in the late 1990’s (I was eventually beaten by "Muscles Mussolini" an Italian trained German-Shepherd, although I still maintain that his hind paw struck me below the belt). But I was still left to wonder what causes highly paid professional athletes to behave in ways that jeopardize their careers. I have therefore decided to dedicate this blog entry to an in-depth study of the psychological causes of this phenomenon. I shall present my case using detailed data from accredited independent research studies from all areas of the scientific community. I shall then go on to explain how environmental factors play a large part in the establishment of moral and social boundaries before examining,at length, the influence of hereditary genetics  coupled with lengthy quotes from "Epigenetic regulation of gene expression: how the genome integrates intrinsic and environmental signals" by Jaenisch R Bird.

Or maybe not.Maybe they are all just rich idiots.

On an unrelated matter I am again forced to predict a series defeat for the Diamondbacks in the upcoming series with the Braves. I say it again;defeat for the Diamondbacks.

    Thanks for your comments on my blog, as I’m new to this, all feedback is welcome
    As for watching the dbacks, being Irish not sure a desert team fits in with where I live(raining here in Dublin right now, again)

    And so to Mr Vick, to put it simply, he’s a muppet and unfortunately he is not the only one. No need for any detailed psychological analysis, he is just a complete and utter ***** with more money then sense and is chucking his career away becuase he believed all the hype he was told all his life. Kinda sad in a way
