I've been having an interesting interchange with a Houston reporter named Chance who wanted to express why he's a fan of VY. We are usually amenable to allowing divergent viewpoints air time, and as we all always say, 'we don't hate Vince Young.' So without further ado, his comments:
Vince turns journalists into fans. I grew up loving the Longhorns, cheering for them, blah blah. Since Vince left it is like a veil was lifted and I could see UT the way the rest of the world saw it. Smarmy, rich jerk-offs with a dhady football program. I still root for them but not like I did by any stretch. Then the whole Texans/David Carr/Mario Williams FlusterCuck happens and I find myself drifting my allegiance to a team that I hate. S***...I have a CD out with a song called "I Hate The Titans" on it. I worked for The Texans last year. I know the players. I know the coaches. I know the brass. I love them all...they are real cool people. But when VY scored in overtime last year and jumped into the waiting arms of Texans fans in the stands I was happy. And I will be happy when The Titans beat the Texans this weekend. And if Vince is traded to the Raiders I will cheer for them probably although that would be a challenge. I have never been an individual over team guy but after I saw The Texans choke last years ace pick I realized that I would have more enjoyment rooting for an individual than a jacked up team.Phew. All in one breath.
That's cool man. And frankly sort of hilarious. As we said before, the Mario Williams pick was a Peyton Manning induced draft choice. Yet one more way Manning dominates like no other player in the game. Including Vince Young. Thanks for sharing.
