Joey Porter Senses a Pit Bull Paradox

New, comment
↵What's the easiest feature for a newspaperman to write these days? A Joey Porter Q&A, of course. Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel asks Porter (who has a bit of a history with aggressive dogs) about Mike Vick's prospective return to the NFL. ↵
↵⇥All it was was dogs. They act like they don't even like pit bulls. That's the funny thing about it. I got pit bulls. I got to put them under a different breed just to travel. You can't fly pit bulls nowhere.
↵⇥"It's not even like they were fighting cocker spaniels or something they like. They don't even so much care about pit bulls. Nobody." ↵
↵Is this a repurposed opening joke for an episode of Seinfeld? "What's the deal with pit bulls? No one likes them, but people still get mad when you force them to fight each other to the death. You let your pit kill one miniature horse and the police get all mad. What's up with that?"
↵I do wonder what Porter disguises his pit bulls as when attempting to get them on the plane. This sounds like a sitcom waiting to happen.↵
