Vick might be off field, but house is on block

O, BY THE WAY

The Kickoff

November 17, 2007|By BILL ORDINE

One day after Barry Bonds was indicted on federal perjury and obstruction charges, the sports world's other famous subject of a federal investigation, Michael Vick, was back in the news yesterday.

The infamous Surry County, Va., house that was headquarters for Vick's dogfighting operation, Bad Newz Kennels, was sold this week to a developer who plans to auction it off.

So, are you looking for new digs and don't care about bad karma? There's a public showing of the house, a 4,300-square-foot two-story white brick building with a backyard basketball court, Dec. 8-9. The auction is Dec. 15. No word on what the developer paid, but reportedly, it's less than the $747,000 assessed value.
