Take a look at these "Who would you rather have as your quarterback?" poll results:
You seeing what I'm seeing? No, not cause for concern that Eli Manning is somewhere snotting "Peyton! Peyton! Peyton!" into a soggy sleeve. I'm talking about Alaska's love for Michael Vick.
C'mon. That's weird.
So I decided to do some investigative research to find out why The Last Frontier is so smitten with ex-cons. My Google search of "Michael Vick Alaska" returned some interesting results.
Yes, there were relevant results.
1. There is a website page called "The Real Sarah Palin Is The Michael Vick Of Alaska" WARNING: There are graphic photos of dead animals here that should either horrify or send anyone with a soul into a blind rage.
I honestly can't think of a damn thing to say to that. Nothing.
2. A similar site (can't believe I just wrote that) asks this question: "Michael Vicks Actions Were Cowardly, What About The Hunters In Alaska?"
What a segue that is.
This might be a post written by guy who really likes wolves and is mad about the aerial hunting done in Alaska. Or, it might be one written by a rabid (sorry) Vick fan who is trying to distract haters away from the quarterback... with the aerial wolf hunting done in Alaska. I have no idea. It's kind of bizarre.
But the more digging I did, the more frequently this linkage came up.
So there you have it, your morality culture scandal exposed by an interweb quarterback question: Alaskans would rather have Michael Vick than less violent guys like Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, or Aaron Rodgers, as the QB of their non-existent football team BECAUSE Vick makes them feel less guilty when they snipe wolves out of airplanes.
