"I knew how much of a mentor Vick was, so I thought if he could rebound and rehab from this thing, people are still going to look up to him," McMenamin said from his office. "We wanted to establish a relationship with Mike first. We went golfing, had dinner, just hung out and got to know each other. I realized this guy is the guy I think he is. He's humble, he's a real genuine human being. I thought he would do well for the store."
"Loyal customers love it," McMenamin said. "They're glad we gave him a second chance because he did his time, he paid his debt to society, he's educating youth on avoiding dogfighting and telling them animal cruelty is not right. But then, you have the activists and they do have a problem with it, so we get calls from them."
