Philly bar refuses to show Eagles games, but not because team is bad

The Giants' white-hot one game win streak got them back on the TV's at Rick's Caberet; a strip club in New York who refused to play their games for fear of depressing the customers. With an unprecedented two wins in a row, the Giants are safely back on the big screen.

The Giants' white-hot one game win streak got them back on the TV's at Rick's Caberet; a strip club in New York who refused to play their games for fear of depressing the customers. With an unprecedented two wins in a row, the Giants are safely back on the big screen.

But in Philadelphia, the Eagles are having their own viewing issues at a local business; only instead of comical and antagonisitic, it's tragic and sad. Stupid Eagles.

You may not have heard about this, but a while back, Michael Vick was arrested and imprisoned for his involvement in a dogfighting ring. Some people have not been impressed enough by Vick's football-playing skills to get over the fact that he tortured a bunch of dogs for a while.

Via Newsworks, Patty Brett, owner of Doobie's, a bar at 22nd and Lombard, refuses to show the Eagles as long as Vick is on the roster. Brett, an animal lover, can hardly talk on the matter without tearing up.

"Because of what Michael Vick has done to those animals, I can't in good conscience support the Eagles while he's a member of the team. He murdered and tortured animals and I can't forgive him for that."

Brett's own patrons seem to be over the issue, citing that Vick did serve his time. But let's not act like it's a huge disservice to prevent people from watching the Eagles lose a 15-7 game to the Giants. If anything, she's a hero.
