COVER! Here is the Michael Vick cover of the Philadelphia Daily News today – “HIDE YOUR DOGS!” “What are they thinking!” Philadelphia Daily News announces Michael Vick’s Eagles signing with “Hide Your Dogs” as the front cover.
But before you chuckle, the Philadelphia Daily News and Michael Vick have something in common today besides a cover – bankruptcy. Big debts reportedly plague both the paper and its dogged-subject today.
But Friday, Philadelphia Daily News readers found on the front steps the plastered headline. But when you open for the read, the copy is actually favorable.
Les Bowen however calls it a big circus:
“VERY LATE last night, Donovan McNabb declared that the Eagles’ stunning signing of Michael Vick was, “no different, really, than bringing T.O. here.” Because, you know, that turned out so well. The Eagles, controversy-free lately, rejoined the circus last night. The big top opens at 11 a.m. today at NovaCare, when Vick is introduced at a news conference.”
Paul Domowitch’s piece starts:
“FORGET, FOR A MOMENT, if that’s possible, what he did and why an organization that perpetually has preached the importance of bringing in character players would sign a guy who has just spent almost 2 years in a federal prison.”
