Mark Buehrle Loves “Happy” and Vice Versa


Full disclosure: Mark Buehrle is one of my favorite White Sox and Happy (pictured here with his Art of the Pale Hose cap) is my best friend.
Earlier this week, Mr. Perfect said the following: “(Michael Vick) had a great year and a great comeback, but there were times where we (with wife Jamie) watched the game and I know it’s bad to say, but there were times where we hope he gets hurt. Everything you’ve done to these dogs, something bad needs to happen to these guys.”
Mark and Jamie (pictured below with a few friends) are strong animal rights advocates who have started a “Sox for Strays” program with local rescue groups. And Mark, of course, was referring to Vick’s dogfighting crimes which put him in prison.
I don’t want to put words in Buehrle’s mouth, but I don’t think he literally meant he was wishing for Vick to suffer a serious injury. He was simply expressing his feelings about how atrocious it is to harm man’s best friends.
“Dogs are like your kids,” Buehrle said. “You cuddle with them when they are going to bed, and I think they are kind of like humans…It’s something about dogs. They connect to you and they bond with you. It’s your buddy.”
Happy and I agree.

    I have to say, my wife’s opinion was they should have strung Vick up by you know what. However, I think he has paid his penalty, his actions did and do anger me, what is angering me more is the fact that people and the media seem to keep rewarding him, they say he’s doing all this good stuff. Do they not realize he’s only doing it because he has to or he goes back to prison and loses his job. The guy is what he is and I think the video from the reporter in Dallas recently goes towards proving that…
    Mark on the other hand, kudos to him for saying what he really thinks.. love it.
    It is also interesting to note, since Vick joined with the Eagles, he has suspiciously not interacted with Phillies players like McNabb did, I think simply because the Utley’s are a big into animal rights and the Buehrle’s.
