In the midst of a 23-month prison sentence on dog-fighting charges, former Atlanta Falcons star quarterback Michael Vick has filed for bankruptcy protection. The bankruptcy filing says that Vick owes between $10 million and $50 million to creditors.

It's hard to know what to say here besides the obvious: Michael Vick is a complete moron. He jeopardized his career and freedom by participating in animal cruelty and mismanaged his money. Is there some facet of his life that Vick hasn't messed up royally?

In the bankruptcy filing, his lawyers stated that Vick hopes he "can, after the conclusion of the bankruptcy case, rebuild his life on a personal and spiritual level, resurrect his image as a public figure, and resolve matters with the NFL such that he can resume his career."

Anything's possible. He's broke and in prison, so there's nowhere to go but up. Perhaps he can make a comeback as a late-night televangelist.
