Midday Chocolate Break: Mike Vick Covers UPTOWN


Philly Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has returned to the football field and back to the covers of magazine. Most recently, the cover of our sister magazine UPTOWN. In the November/December issue of the glossy, the former Atlanta Falcon dishes on his victories and downfalls and how he’s reinventing himself to become a better person.

“I am determined to become a better student of the game and I knew I had to work at it,” says Vick. “I was young when I was in Atlanta. I’m older now. I’ve been through a lot and I think I’ve matured. I had some good years there, but I’m just so thankful to be in Philadelphia right now. I could not have landed in a better city. This is my home. This is where I want to be, and I take this opportunity seriously.”

While that’s great (and no disrespect to his lady Kijafa), Mike is still extremely easy on the eyes which is why we don’t mind taking a second (and third glance). The photos catch a rugged, baby-oiled Vick showing intensity and his obvious love for the game. That alone makes any Vixen join #TeamVick!
