Tashard Choice asks Michael Vick for autograph

There's a certain amount of decorum that comes with being a member of the media or an athlete when it comes to requesting autographs. If you're in the former group, you don't do it at all (someone learned that the hard way with Tim Tebow). If you're in the latter, you do it discreetly. Unless you're Tashard Choice.

The Dallas Cowboys running back approached Michael Vick after Sunday night's game, holding his glove and a pen and asked Vick to give him his John Hancock.

Since he decided to do this as the national television broadcast was wrapping up, the cameras caught it, and plenty of people offered their opinion on why the hell he was doing it. We can discuss, but first, the video:



Within minutes, there was a rumor floating on Twitter that Tashard is involved with a charity called "Helping Hands" where he auctions off autographed gloves. However, a Google search of that returned no results, and neither did Choice's website. (Although he did appear on CSI: Miami recently!)

Fortunately, he was kind enough to tweet an answer as to what he was doing.
Listen y'all I know vick. That glove was for my nephew who is 3. Not for me
That was actually the first thing that ran through my mind after the awkwardness passed, but still, the point remains that Choice is better off, if he knows Vick, figuring out a way to meet up with the quarterback a little more discreetly and get the sig. After all, Vick's been in Dallas for a few days, and the two teams do play again in a few short weeks.

In the end, it's not a big deal, but you can bet he gets ragged for it.

If we'd won the game (the Cowboys) this wouldn't be a big deal.  However, since we lost by 3 points, I find the act a bit insulting and think Mr. Choice should have done that off the field and not in our faces as if he's too star struck to even focus on the loss.  But, he apologized and I think that should be that.

Tashard Choice asks Michael Vick for autograph

This is a non story.  One thing I enjoy about being at games in person, is watching the players after the game. Football is the only sport left where true sportsmanship is shown when guys from both teams are on the field in small groups, some in prayer groups others just visiting.  It really shows that it is still a game, and that when the final whistle blows men can truly show what it means to be a man.

I think what Vick has done is commendable, he has paid and continues to pay the price for a very deplorable life off the field.  He has done what has been asked of him by the law and the NFL, The NFL is full of thugs who have beaten woman and one player who plea bargained out of a murder charge, and the refused to testify, Vick is a breath of fresh air in how he handled it all. Tashard's nephew can learn a lot from him, so I hope the glove truly is for him, and I have no reason to doubt it isn't.

If it makes the rest happy maybe the next time he can trip him and then ask for his autogragh.

I have no problem with what he did, but not the time or the place in my view.  As for Vick, I'll never root for him but respect rights of others to do so - he did his time. If only Madoff could play some solid QB all would be forgiven for him.
