Well it seems Michael Vick won’t be jumping up and down on Oprah’s couch next week.

It’s being reported by Darren Rovell of CNBC reports that Philly QB Michael Vick has canceled his appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show that was supposed to air Thursday,September 24th There’s no word yet on why Vick canceled. When a public figure with a checkered task makes an appointment to visit Oprah, it’s an attempt to open up and show mainstream America that he’s changed for the better. Scheduling an interview only to cancel it later makes Vick look like he has something to hide.

And while Vick might be concerned about uncomfortable questions regarding his involvement in dog fighting, at this point, everyone knows what Vick did. He’d be better off answering those questions and stressing that he’s trying to move forward with his life than avoiding the questions.
