On Dec. 4, two days before the Eagles play the Falcons in Georgia, an outfit called New Order – which bills itself as a national human-rights organization – plans to hold a “welcome home” rally for Michael Vick in Atlanta. According to a team spokesman, Vick didn’t know about the rally and won’t attend since the Birds don’t fly South until Dec. 5. Bummer. Sounds like he’s going to miss a sweet party. New Order’s founder, Gerald Rose, said his organization has “40 or 50 members, on paper.” Naturally, the group picked a small, intimate venue to welcome Vick back. Maybe you’ve heard of it – it’s called the Georgia Dome. “We never supported dogfighting, but Michael loved this city and we loved him,” Rose said. “We feel that we owe Michael Vick. Even though he’s been gone from the city for a few years, we feel like we’ll get a great turnout and a lot of people to the rally.” J. Whyatt Mondesire – head of the Philadelphia NAACP – told reporters the same thing before Vick’s first preseason game. Mondesire promised a big march, then produced maybe 15 people before the game. — Philadelphia Inquirer

Make it an open bar and I’m sure you’ll get plenty of people to attend. -TO
