Michael Vick Mansion Doesn't Sell

I just read on Yahoo that when they held the auction of Michael Vick's mansion in Georgia, only two people showed up, and neither of them bought it. The opening bid was $3.2 million, but it looks like it would be worth way more than that.

I hope everything else in his life goes this smoothly. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Unfortunately, there's probably a bank that's stuck with the house. Or if he owns it outright, some other creditor(s) that's not getting paid.

I'm just enjoying the fact that no one will touch him with a 10' pole.

Huge's remark definitely brought this thread to a screeching halt!

Re: Michael Vick Mansion Doesn't Sell

Maybe that was a sarcastic comment, like nice that he's getting this attention so everyone will remember was a scumbag he is?

Re: Michael Vick Mansion Doesn't Sell

It wasn't sarcastic....

He just seems to still be getting a lot of attention that he doesn't really deserve

Re: Michael Vick Mansion Doesn't Sell

It's interesting to me how many dog lovers there are in the world, and the passion with which they treat this story. You're right, Hugh, if Michael Vick had killed a person we probably wouldn't even be talking about him today.

Part of the reason we're still talking about him in the U.S. is that there's an animal sanctuary in Utah, Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, which has a weekly show about their work with hard-luck and injured dogs. They took in 22 of the Michael Vick dogs even though they were supposed to be euthanized. They spent a lot of time showing the relationships being made with them, including a focus on Georgia, a female dog who was becoming friendly with one of their dog trainers. Georgia and the trainer also appeared on the Ellen show recently. And they replay that episode over and over, so anyone who's remotely interested can watch and get re-incensed about Michael Vick.
