Tennessee Titans backup quarterback Vince Young hasn’t seen the field since he was benched in Week 1 of last season, but he’s been keeping busy. And you might want to grab a tissue, because it’s about to get a little misty in here:
Young surprised [the two young sons of the late Steve McNair] 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.” via, via.
One of the disappointing things about the way that everyone covered Steve McNair’s death [us included] was how little discussion was devoted to the wife and four kids that he left behind. Those first few days back in school must have been great for those kids. Hey, what happened to your dad? Oh, he was murdered by his secret girlfriend right before she turned the gun on herself. Just horribly tragic. And I thought I had it bad in school for being teased about wearing Asics…
