As you may have heard last night, Michael Vick was in a very serious car accident and broke both his legs, according to Global Associated News on a page with the following URL: http://michael.vick.mediafetcher.com/news/top_stories/football_car_crash?location=Philadelphia.
Obviously, the story was fake, and it’s actually a reprint (repost?) of a story from last year, which said the exact same thing (it’s also the reason why it took me, like, an hour to believe the Paul Walker news– boy being cry wolf*).
But the story fooled some people, including the eSeans– Jackson and McCoy.
LeSean (McCoy) and DeSean (Jackson) called me first to make sure I was OK,” Vick said. “Nobody really believed it, but everybody just called to make sure it was a hoax. It was weird.”
Vick said he woke up to the report, but was confused as to how it was happening again.
“That was an old story,” Vick said. “That surfaced last year.”
Presumably, this means that D-Jac took time out his cake day and attention away from his Mercedes birthday cake, mom, and possibly Ashanti to find a quiet area from which to call his friend and backup quarterback to see if he had really broken both his legs. I love our world.
*For realsies for a minute– is there a more unfortunately ironic death than Paul Walker dying in a speeding sports car? I mean, I spent all weekend trying to figure it out and the only example I came up with was if Mark Hamill would’ve died in a spacecraft accident.
