...and this is the digital drawing of what the World Wide Leader thinks that would look like. The writer of the piece, Touré, just tweeted "I wrote an essay about Vick & race. ESPN the mag titled it & added art without me (normal procedure). Judge me on the story not the art." First, you got one f*cking name, Bro. That works for singers, dudes in the WWE, and lowly bloggers (like myself). Find a last name, jerk-off. Second, how could anyone read your story at face value with this ridiculous picture sitting on top of it? Did someone at ESPN pop in Madden and create this white version of Michael Vick? I think they did.
Update: In a stunning turn of events, ESPN has already yanked the picture from their website replacing it with an actual photo of Vick. And I just noticed this, but they couldn't just change his skin color, they had to give him green eyes too?
Update #2: ESPN had yet another change of heart and now wants us to continue imagining Mick Vick as a light-eyed white man. Chalk this up as a win for the rest of the Internet. Like a 14 year old girl who got prego and has pro-life parents, ESPN realized no one was going to let them unf*ck themselves and now they have to just own it.
