Well, here it is: the story that everyone's talking about.  From ESPN.com:

Federal authorities have filed court documents outlining an alleged dogfighting operation at a property owned by Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick… Vick is not named in the documents.  Additionally, Vick is unlikely to be indicted in the dogfighting federal investigation, according to information gathered by the NFL and Atlanta Falcons, sources tell ESPN's Chris Mortensen. The authorities have told the Falcons and league that there has not been any evidence that can be tied to Vick with the alleged dogfighting ring, the sources said.

Oh wait, that was the story from last week.  Helluva scoop, Mort.  Here's the new story:

NFL star Michael Vick was indicted by a federal grand jury Tuesday on charges of sponsoring a dogfighting operation so grisly the losers either died in the pit or sometimes were electrocuted, drowned, hanged or shot.

If convicted, Vick and the three others charged in the operation could face up to six years in prison and $350,000 in fines, which could totally cut into Vick's weed intake, possibly harshing his buzz.  But we all know that won't happen.  Vick's a famous athlete, and famous athletes can do anything without repercussion.  He'll plea down to a misdemeanor, and the worst punishment he'll face is the suspension from Der Kommissar Herr Goodell.  And If I'm wrong, I'll eat my hat.  I fashioned it out of Cool Ranch Doritos, so it will be a delicious mistake.
