Just when you think you’ve seen everything along comes a customizable Michael Vick dog jersey. What more could a dog lover ask for?
The L.A. Times reports that fans can order the Philadelphia Eagles dog jersey with Vick’s name on the back on the NFLShop.com site.
A New York Daily News reporter successfully purchased the “custom pet jersey,” making it clear that Vick isn’t on the league’s list of words and names shoppers cannot use for customized jerseys.
“Like any other player, [customers] can obtain that name and that jersey if they wish,” league spokesman Greg Aiello told the Daily News. “As far as putting it on the dog product, he’s working with humane societies, working to educate others on this issue, so we don’t see a problem.”
I cannot fathom a dog lover walking around with a Michael Vick jersey. For that matter, I don’t know why anyone would possibly want one. A Michael Vick dog chew toy….maybe.
