Toronto, Vick & Coffee

Joe D



I am still catching up from my second Toronto visit in a month. I headed up to this freezing city for some appointments and the GFY Christmas party, and was the only one enjoying the snow. Good fortune with timing allowed me to attend the Python office party on Friday night as well - and Mary Queen of Marketing at FlashCash set up a great Saturday night after-party hosted by Jason and Buddy in their new offices. Plenty of good business and holiday discussion was had by all – and Toronto is clearly one of the top industry business centers in the world.

Enough on all this Michael Vick discussion! I have a question for anyone feeling sorry for his 23 month incarceration and potential loss of 141 million dollars. Do any of you not have the common sense to reason that the NFL and companies including Nike among other charges might frown upon the beating of dogs to death as an off-field leisure pastime? I didn’t think so, so what was Michael Vick thinking? Is there any possible cultural excuse for this oversight? Certainly his career was managed by someone close enough to know about this ‘hobby?’ Where were his advisors? I am no one to judge as I humanize my dogs way past normal, following my narcotics trained Westminster champion to pick up his poop which does not stink…my sentencing recommendation would have been much more severe…

I didn’t get much feedback on my coffee affliction, but have decided to limit consumption to one morning coffee from this day forward…good luck to all you other fiends…
