Vick has fan in judge who sentenced him


The man who sentenced Michael Vick to nearly two years in prison for his role in a dogfighting ring is rooting for him to succeed.

"He's an example of how the system can work," said U.S. District Court Judge Henry E. Hudson told the Washington Post. "He's having a terrific season. I'm very happy for him. I wish him the best of success."

Hudson is back in the spotlight as he is expected to rule in a case challenging the constitutionality of the overhaul of the health care system.

Since we do football here, and not politics, we will move on to the next item, but thought his comments on Vick were worth passing along.
