Michael Vick Does Teshuva

It’s Elul for Michael Vick, too. After pleading guilty to charges related to his involvement in dogfighting, Vick gave a press conference in which he revealed: “Through this situation I found Jesus and I ask him for forgiveness, and I turn my life over to God. I think that’s the right thing to do as of right now.”

Another bizarre chapter in the history of athletes and God-talk. His conversion takes place with 1:37 left in this clip.
