Here's the latest on the Michael Vick rehab tour courtesy of my Inquirer sports department colleagues, Jeff McLane and Bob Brookover:
Michael Vick was to appear at Germantown High this morning as part of his ongoing public penance. The Eagles quarterback has already made several appearances as local high schools.
"He's going to be talking to 100 members of Germantown High School about dogfighting and making poor decisions," Eagles spokeswoman Pamela Browner-Crawley said. "A lot of these organizations and schools reach out to us because they feel they have an issue and they feel that Michael has something to bring to the table. Quite frankly, when people see Michael, they see someone who is more like they are. It's hard for you and me to go some place and say how terrible we think something is. When Michael talks to them about it, I think they really hear it. It's almost like going to France and talking a person who speaks French with you."
The Eagles, meanwhile, announced the launching of their new initiative, the Eagles TAWK (Treating Animals With Kindness) community outreach program. TAWK is a new comprehensive community outreach initiative to reduce the abuse of animals, promote responsible adoption, encourage spay and neuter and put an end to dog fighting through increased public education and awareness.
