The new reality show, “The Longest Yard,” has been cancelled as Michael Vick has decided to hold out.

From ESPN:

Michael Vick might be tossing a football around in prison, but according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, it’s far from organized.

In an interview with the New York Daily News on Monday, Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank said Vick is playing ball in prison to keep his body in shape, his arm limber and to pass the time.

“Apparently, there was a prison football team and he played quarterback for both sides,” Blank told the Daily News.

However, federal prison officials told the Journal-Constitution that Vick did not arrive at the Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary Camp in time to participate in the facility’s football season.

Had they sentenced him to community service at the Humane Society we might have gotten some REAL reality television.

Just keepin’ it real, baby.
