Low turnout for Vick speech in D.C.

WASHINGTON - Michael Vick told a sparse crowd at a Washington church yesterday that dogfighting is pointless and he doesn't know why he risked his career for it.

"I got caught up in the culture," the Eagles quarterback said at Covenant Baptist Church, in one of the city's poorest neighborhoods. "I never thought that I would get caught."

The church appearance was sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States.
