Michael Vick will host a Super Bowl party Friday night in Dallas. What could possibly go wrong?
At Vick's 30th birthday party last summer, a co-conspirator in the dogfighting ring that landed Vick in a federal prison was shot. (No charges were filed and Vick said he was not involved.) For this shindig, a "Dallas Dynasty 2011" party that billed as the "premiere A-list high society event of the 2011 Super Bowl," Vick and his people are being extra careful. Jeff Skaggs, owner of the Deux Lounge in Dallas, told TMZ.com (via Eagletarian blog, that he has hired three off-duty SWAT team members for the six-hour party that begins at 9 p.m.
Vick will have his own security, the NFL is providing security and the Eagles are bringing in extra members of its security team, according to Eagletarian. Reportedly, there will be room for guests, who'll be searched and wanded.
Eagletarian reports that Vick has other activities planned, including Super Teen Saturday, an alcohol-free event for 14-17 year olds offering "positive role models and messages."
