Vick Can No Longer Be Life of the Party

Vick Can No Longer Be Life of the Party

There are certain things Michael Vick cannot do anymore. One, for the time being, is own a dog. Another is be the life of the party.

On Thursday morning, news broke that Vick was going to "host" a Super Bowl bash at a club in Dallas on Friday night. An invitation, shown on the website TMZ.com, touted "The Michael Vick Experience," and read, in part, "Four-time Pro Bowl QB Michael Vick would like to personally invite you to the only upscale A-list celebrity extravaganza of the 2011 Super Bowl. This will be the primary & preferred destination for iconic personalities from the NFL, MLB, Hollywood, the music industry and corporate America!"

Except Vick will not be there. An Eagles spokesman confirmed that Vick told him as much on Thursday afternoon. As for whether the Eagles knew about such a party before Thursday, the spokesman would not say. The team had no further comment.

Earlier Thursday, TMZ.com reported that the owner of Deux Lounge, the club hosting the event, said that there would be increased security at the event provided by Vick, the NFL, and the club, including three off-duty members of a SWAT team.

Jeff Skaggs, identified by TMZ.com as the operating owner of Deux Lounge, did not return messages for comment. Vick also did not return a text seeking comment.
