    Michael Vick told a sparse crowd at a Washington church on Tuesday that dogfighting is pointless and he doesn't know why he risked his career for it. "I got caught up in the culture," the Philadelphia 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. Vick has been working with the group since his release and has appeared at similar events in Atlanta, Chicago and Philadelphia. "I used poor judgment. I had people around me who didn't have my best interests at heart," he said. "For what reason, I don't know to this day," he said. "Something so pointless." "Who knows what could have happened at 3 in the morning when you're fighting dogs?" he said. "It's almost like being involved in the streets, dealing drugs, in criminal life."

    + smart points to Vick for surrounding himself with quality advisers and listening to what they're telling him. He's doing and saying all the right things so far, and I'm glad to see it. :yes:

    "Almost"? :icon_rofl:

    Mike still doesn't quite get it.

    Dude! It wasn't 'almost like criminal life'... That WAS criminal life!

    He is doing the right things so far. I'll give him credit for that.
