"Holding a grudge is like allowing him to live in your head rent free."

Exactly, Kendall! That's one of the best reasons for forgiving...or at least letting go of something that happened in the past and moving on.

I only recently found out about Michale Vick's personal history. I'm certainly not going to stress out my mind over it long after the fact. As for Michael Vick, since he happens to be quite good at playing football, I think it's probably best for all concerned that he continue doing so in spite of the fact that he once did a bad thing. It makes more sense to let him resume playing football than forcing him to do something else instead...something that he's probably not particularly good at. Might as well let him do what he has the best ability to do.

Somebody mentioned rugby...it seems almost like a giant brawl on a playing field to me. I think a person would have to be a bit crazy (or hypnotized by cultural programming) to play that game. If I had to choose between them, I'd opt for American football. If I were offered an additional choice, however, I'd opt for Winona Ryder. ;-D
