    So not sure if this is newsworthy, but since its Houston and since its the offseason, I thought what the heck.

    Anyway, I was out shopping for some jewelry, and happened to notice Vince Young at the same store I go to. I said hello, he said hi back. I didn't really know what to tell him, so I told him I admired his play last year and wish he had been in Houston. He said "Me too."

    Nice guy, but pretty quiet. I bet he gets bugged a lot

    Thanks for posting about your encounter with Vince.

    Sounds like he'll be back at Reliant this year determined to prove himself to Bob McNair - again.

    I met him once too. I like to share my stories here and there too. Last summer, he came to Sky which is now defunct and has changed to TOC bar on Travis and Franklin. I'm a valet supervisor with R&R Partnership.

    Vince Young came in for some sort of event. We parked his brand new Escalade which had been painted Titans Blue and the leather seats had VY with the number 10 overlapping it stitched into the headrest as well as his floor mats. It was beautifully done.

    Now I park these type of customers' cars all the time but what impressed me the most about Vince that night was the fact that he had come in at 8pm and a good six hours later at 2am, he walked out sober and still had a hearty smile embedded in his face all the while catering to all the drunk people clamoring around him.

    He instisted that he be addressed as Vince, not Mr. Young. He tipped us a cool hundred. A very nice and personable guy! We loved having him as a customer and hope to have him again.

    He understands that he's the enemy now though! Sorry, Vince.

    I dunno, but doesn't exactly sound like a ringing endorsement of his new home ?

    It's a testament to how crazy things got in here that when I read the thread title "I met Vince Young" I mentally appended "and now I can walk again" to it.

    I couldn't help it. It just popped in there.

    Actually as the story goes my wife picked me up ..... but if portraying your life situations under the guise that it is me gets you ways to deal with it more power to you man. I would suggest just talking to her. The 4 hour tirade about your inadequacies will come and pass but after the talk at least you will know ...... and knowing is half the battle.....

    We all know that is a lie. That would be like your whole team putting on a Texans jersey. How disgraceful would that be?

    She does. Along with shorts that say TEXANS on the back.
