Michael Vick Is Selling His Powerboats to Pay for His Legal Bills

Michael Vick spent a lot of money on new cars

Why, you ask? Well, because instead of waiting for his prison sentence to end and then rolling back to a plush lifestyle, he's having to sell all kinds of stuff. Like boats. Really expensive boats.

A new doc in his bankruptcy case shows Vick is trying to unload a couple of World Cat boats estimated to be worth around $165K for the pair -- he needs the cash to pay back his debts, say lawyers.

Best line in the filing, a Hail Mary of laughable proportions: "Upon his release, the Debtor [that's MV] ... will seek to rebuild his life and professional football career."

Okay, so those are actually pretty cheap boats (I bought like four on my November blogging salary). But the point is that Vick has no money. And that's why he's filed this bankruptcy court pleading (which, legal buffs, you can read here -- .PDF)

Honestly though, the TMZ staff shouldn't be so contrite about the "rebuilding" part. Because, believe me, I've been watching the Lions the last few weeks, and I'm fairly certain that if old Rog will let Vick back in the league, he won't be unemployed forever.
