Michael Vick Could Buy A Whole Lotta Weed With $200 Per Week

The Albany Firebirds, an Arena League 2 football team, has offered Michael Vick a one-year deal for the tidy sum of $200/week – PLUS – a $50 bonus for each win he can deliver. Damn those difficult-to-achieve performance clauses!

There is, however, one additional caveat:  the contract on the table also stipulates that Vick would have to donate $100,000 to the local humane society, so essentially Vick would end up losing money playing football for the Firebirds.

You know, this idea is so crazy it’s gotta work – just like my battery-powered battery charger*.
