Vick’s Life Under Construction

HAMPTON, Va. — Suspended NFL player Michael Vick arrived at his Virginia home by car a day after being released from a federal prison in Kansas to start home confinement and a job in construction but with hopes of making it back to the playing field someday.

Four cars pulled up to Vick’s five-bedroom brick home at the end of a cul-de-sac at about 8:25 a.m, led by a black Kia Sedona with blackout curtains in the back and sunshields on the front side windows. Vick was in the Sedona, said Chris Garrett, a member of Vick’s support and legal team.

A man got out of the lead vehicle and moved aside orange cones blocking the driveway, then the Sedona drove into a garage on the side of the house and out of sight of the street. The other three cars followed into the driveway. Two men, presumably security guards who were part of the traveling party, stood in the driveway and three others took up posts near the front door as though to prevent anyone from approaching.

“He’s happy to be reunited with his family,” Garrett said 10 minutes after the cars arrived.

Vick spent 19 months at the prison in Leavenworth, Kan., after his conviction for financing a dogfighting operation.

He will spend the next two months under home confinement wearing an electronic monitor and working a $10-an-hour job as a laborer for a construction company. He’s scheduled to be released from federal custody on July 20, and then faces three more years of supervised probation

Hey Mike, remember when we used to put our beta fish in the same cup and bet on who’s was floating the next day.. Good times man-TO
