"Ron Mexico" Lands in Philadelphia

The NFL's Philadelphia Eagles announced last night that they had signed Michael Vick, who had become a national paraiah following his conviction two years ago for running a dog fighting ring.

But did you know that this was not Michael Vick's first "dirty" court case? When he was a superstar with the Atlanta Falcons he was sued by a woman who accused Vick of having knowingly given her a sexually transmitted disease. One of the allagations in the lawsuit was that Michael Vick repeatedly visted various clinics for treatment of venereal diseases under the alias "Ron Mexico." This "Ron Mexico" scandal became so notorious that the NFL's own website banned the sale of customized Atlanta Falcons jerseys if the purchaser requested the name "Mexico" be emblazoned on the shoulders.
