Michael Vick

Pumps Up Nate Dogg's Son

12/1/2011 3:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Mike Vick and Nate Doggs Son
Michael Vick just made another deposit in the karma bank ... 'cause dude inspired a young dogg -- Nate Dogg's son -- by reaching out to talk football and family this week.

Here's how Vick connected with Naijiel Hale -- a football stud at Lakewood High, outside Los Angeles.

Naijiel's mom entered him in a Vick giveaway contest on Facebook by telling the Eagles QB ... her son is a huge fan of his, and "a sophomore starting DB (defensive back) with awesome grades :)"

Couple days later Vick personally responded with an email to Naiji, saying ... "Congratulations on a good season and thank you for the support." Naijiel told his hero, "Its been a hard year with my dad passing," and added he and Nate Dogg used to watch Vick play every game.

A rep tells TMZ, Vick decided to contact Naiji after reading about his H.S. football success -- leading the league in interceptions -- despite his father's death in March.

In his last email Vick said, "Sorry to hear about your father but glad to see you're being strong and keep achieving."

Now, if he can just get back on the field for the Eagles.

Yeah, and remember that time when Michael Vick spent years fighting and slaughtering a bunch of innocent dogs, went to prison and got temporarily kicked out of the NFL. You're never gonna live that one down, Vick. And you shouldn't. You puppy killing bastard.

No doubt this story is a plant by his publicist trying to revamp his image so he can get endorsement deals. Hey Vick, I hear Purina Puppy Chow needs a new spokesperson.

Michael Vick said: "Yes, young man, come join all of us criminals in the NFL! We rape, we steal, we always drive drunk! We do drugs at 3am. Our brains might be small, but we don't really need them to carry a ball down the field, do we?"

Michael Vick said: "Now grab the dog's collar, twist it until the dog passes out. Isn't that incredible fun? I like them to die slow."

Michael Vick is only a role model for what you DON'T want your kids go grow up to be. He murdered dogs with his bare hands.....need I say more?
