I Wanna Be Like Mike!
From all the excitement filling Atlanta's Greenbriar Mall on September 1, you'd have never known the Falcons were coming off a deflating 8-8 season. But after further inspection you see that team savior, quarterback Michael Vick, is in the building. But No. 7 isn't hanging out in front of Burlington Coat Factory strictly on some pep rally-type ish. The man's actually in the mall to show off his new Nike Zoom Vick IV sneakers. It's a good-looking kick. Appears light and comfy. A few lucky Falcons fans actually get to take a pair of the shoes home with them. Knowing that Atlanta's first three games of the '06 season are versus rival NFC South teams, I just hope the cross trainers are as comfortable on feet as they appear to be on display. If the Falcons' offensive line hasn't steadied since last year, Vick's gonna be scrambling non-stop just to stay on his feet.
