    Thanks for posting that. That's a great story and I am very happy to see Young doing this. He'll never replace their father, but those boys will know that they'll never be alone, either.

    That's a great story, good for him! He's not having the easiest time down there in Tenn. It's great that he's thinking of someone else.........

    That choked me up.

    Sometimes life makes no sense...but when people really step up....really care and show compassion-that's what makes life worth it.

    Thanks for the great games Steve

    That is well beyond first class behavior. Well done, Vince.

    Great Story. Quick Question though did Young and Vince ever play together ? Cant seem to remember.

    I'm not generally a fan of Young, but I have to agree that this is a 100% classy move (no snark intended).

    I just wish that for every "Tila Tequila" story, we could hear at least one story about the good things like this that NFL players do.

    Yes, it's the same person ;) I know Vince was drafted with Steve on the Titans roster, and then he left for Baltimore (I think)

    Maybe this is a sign that Young has grown up some. It's hard not to root for a guy after reading this.

    That is super cool. :) I don't care much for the Titans, but I'm a Vince Young fan now.
