Michael Vick, the embattled Atlanta Falcons quarterback, pleaded guilty to Federal dogfighting charges Monday in Richmond. He then made the obligatory Ritual Speech o’ Contrition.
Speaking slowly and softly, the 27-year-old ex-Virginia Tech star also declared that he had “found Jesus” as part of his ordeal and has turned his life over to God. He did not take questions after speaking in a conference room at the Omni Richmond Hotel.
Imagine that: A jailhouse conversion before he has spent even one night in jail.

It occurs to me that if you ever lost your Jesus, the best place to look for him must be on the courthouse steps. Plenty of folks seem to find him there.

Now, there’s a Dog Bites Man moment in more ways than one.
