In what’s picking up steam as a story, Ohio State sophomore quarterback Terrelle Pryor expressed his support for Michael Vick during Saturday’s game against Navy by writing his name on his eyeblack. Check out the pictures of Pryor’s Vick eyeblack:
I have no problem with Pryor supporting Michael Vick but I’ve always been against players using their eyeblack to convey any sort of message — I just think it’s stupid. Particularly, if you’re Pryor, I hope you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into (the comments you’ll receiver, people you might piss off) when you’re doing that. As long as he does, then he should be cool. Well, that, and as long as he doesn’t make dumbass comments like this one, regarding the eyeblack:
“Not everybody is the perfect person in the world,” Pryor said of Vick. “Everyone does — kills people, murders people, steals from you, steals from me. I just feel that people need to give him a chance.”
Yikes! We all know that’s not what he meant but it certainly came out wrong. I’m with him on the giving another chance part. This episode certainly will be a major factor in Pryor’s career. Will he back down from his statements or continue to be a polarizing figure? Only time will tell. He better grow up soon because he has the Trojans coming to town on Saturday.
