Not really a followup.
The Sports Rumors has two recent posts on Michael Vick.
On Tuesday, a post appeared which partially read as follows:
When this whole saga began, I was a believer of the “Rich people don’t serve time” theory. Well, apparently, I couldn’t have been more wrong about that. Michael Vick is in not just fighting a battle with Goodell to play in the league anymore; he’s fighting to stay out of prison.
Could things get worse for Vick? By Wednesday, they did:
Vick is apparently being sued by a South Carolina inmate for $63 billion. The inmate alleges that Vick stole his pitbulls and then sold them on ebay to buy missles from Iran.
More from the source that I dare not cite:
Jonathan Lee Riches filed the handwritten complaint over "theft and abuse of my animals" on July 23....
Riches alleges that Vick stole two white mixed pit bull dogs from his home in Holiday, Fla., and used them for dogfighting operations in Richmond, Va. The complaint goes on to allege that Vick sold the dogs on eBay and “used the proceeds to purchase missiles from the Iran government.”
The complaint also alleges that Vick would need those missiles because he pledged allegiance to Al Qaeda in February of this year....
Riches wants $63 billion dollars “backed by gold and silver “ delivered to the front gates to the Williamsburg Federal Correctional facility in South Carolina. Riches is an inmate at the facility serving out a wire fraud conviction.
Jonathan Lee Riches? He dreams. And this isn't the first suit that he's filed.

But not everyone agrees that this lawsuit is ridiculous:

Stupid smug, good-for-nothing document.
Which raises the question - if you sue the U.S. Constitution in Federal court, how is the case decided?
And Jonathan Lee Riches also sued Barry Bonds, Bud Selig, and Hank Aaron's bat. (Courtesy Dreadnought.)
If this continues to increase exponentially, I can't wait to see what Shaun posts today (Thursday). Here's to hoping that a political candidate gets involved in a ridiculous situation.

Or perhaps Michael Vick could use the Bobby Ewing Shower Scene, but after hearing about Jonathan Lee Riches, I just want to take a shower
