The NFL proudly presents to you a very unique opportunity to dress your dog in a shirt that says, "I am the most kindhearted and forgiving dog in the entire history of dogs." Make that statement and more with this handsome new Philadelphia Eagles dog jersey.
Every team has pet jerseys for sale at NFLShop.com, each customizable with any name and number you'd like. From the New York Daily News, the NFL addressed the possibility of someone ordering a customized Michael Vick jersey for their dog.
"Like any other player, (customers) can obtain that name and that jersey if they wish," league spokesman Greg Aiello said. "As far as putting it on the dog product, he's working with humane societies, working to educate others on this issue, so we don't see a problem."
The Daily News says "a twisted sense of humor" is required to buy the jersey, and WEEI calls it "the height of sickening gestures."
I don't see it that way. I say if Vick is back in the league, then he's back all the way. He's just like any other player, and that, oddly enough, includes the customer's ability to get his name of the back of a dog jersey.
And besides that, I refuse to get worked up about dog clothing. The very act of putting clothing on a dog may be more offensive than anything that might be printed on that clothing.
