Vick in the Doghouse..

...for 23 months.

Michael Vick was sentenced to 23 months in prison Monday for his role in a dogfighting conspiracy that involved gambling and killing pit bulls.

The suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback could have been sentenced up to five years by U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson. Vick, who turned himself in Nov. 19 in anticipation of his sentence, was wearing a black-and-white striped prison suit.

After Vick apologized to the court and his family, Hudson told him: "You need to apologize to the millions of young people who looked up to you."

"Yes, sir,' Vick answered.

You know you've screwed up when you've got me agreeing with the PETA people.

Let's throw this out. The guy's football career is over. Are the state charges double jeopardy, or at least beating a dead horse? (pun intended)
