Good for Vince, you know McNair would have done the same thing for him:

For one day at least, Vince Young stepped up to try to fill the void for the late Steve McNair's two young sons, the Tennessean reported Thursday.

Young surprised 11-year-old Trenton and 5-year-old Tyler on Wednesday by showing up at their house and taking them to their school's "Dear Dads Breakfast" at a local restaurant.

"Those are my boys," Young told the Tennessean. "I wouldn't say it was to pay anyone back; it was just out of love. Steve would do it for me. He pretty much did it for me when I was growing up. I have a history with the boys and I want to do anything I can. I am their big brother."

Julie Dilworth, admissions director at St. Paul Christian Academy, lauded Young's actions.

"It was a great, great gesture," Dilworth told the Tennessean. "All the kids had been talking about the dads' breakfast and [Trenton and Tyler] were wondering what was going to happen with them.

"They were thrilled ... the boys came to school with huge smiles on their faces."

We probably do, but when you come to them and we see your eyes light up, it's hard to stop..

Kudos to Vince. Way to step up to the plate.

Stories like this are always placed on the 2nd page, behind the player who killed dogs, ran over someone drunk or is just an all around asshat.

Hell, just click on your local news channel to see proof

In other news, the kids had asked for Kerry Collins, but he was busy.

I'm glad to see this. I bag on Vince too, but I want him to do well (once he leaves the Titans).

Yep, if it bleeds, it leads!

Congrats VY - you've made a good step towards being a mature person, let's hope this extends to your professional life as well.

Good job Vince. I hope this is a step in your maturation process.

Agreed, hopefully the Titans release him before he matures and can turns things around.

Look at Vince trying to clean up for Bob Mcnair when he becomes a FA.

On the real, that was cool though.

That was definitely cool. I hope Vince leaves the Titans and then do well. Titans should not have any success.

Kudos to Vince. I hope this continues to be a step in the right direction for him as a person, football players come and go but when someone matures as a person that surpasses the game.

I'll give kudos to him, because the end result was that the kids were happy, but I'd bet money that VY's mama told him to do it.

It's great to hear about Vince in public wearing a shirt.
Way to take care of one of your own.



PS
He WAS wearing a shirt...right?
