  2. Phew.This could easily turn into a rage review on my hatred for Michael Vick, even now all these years later The beginning of this book is VERY graphic and hard to swallow and only added gasoline to my fire I understand that he did his time, and he now has become an advocate for dogs, giving speeches and talking to people about the evils of dog fighting But actually reading just how involved he was in all of it not only funding and watching the fights, but being one of the people to murder t Phew.This could easily turn into a rage review on my hatred for Michael Vick, even now all these years later The beginning of this book is VER...
