Michael Vick is on a book tour promoting “Finally Free”, an autobiography in which he goes into detail about that thing he did.

In another interview he claims he only did a book because he’s bored. That’s so Ookie.

During the Vick segment, someone wanted to run some stock FOOTBAW PRACTICE footage while Ookie was chatting, except the producers ran a clip of
Vince Young Jerrod Johnson (NOW WE’RE RAYCESS! EVERYONE IS RAYCESS!), who is not only not Michael Vick but not even a member of the Eagles anymore. Top form all around, guys.
