An open letter to Titans Quarterback Vince Young: I just did a really dumb thing

Dear Vince Young,

Please accept my apologies. I’ve just done something a hardcore home-team football fan like me should never do — and because of that, I missed one of the greatest rookie QB feats of all time and you leading the Titans in a historic come-from-behind victory (the opposite of the franchise’s historic come-from-behind loss). I was at the game and for the first two quarters, things were going so painfully bad for the Titans, I got bored and started looking for things to take my mind off the game — you know, stuff like taking photos of spectators with really bad mullet haircuts. During half-time, completely fed up with how pathetic you and the other Titans were playing, I left the game in disgust. I couldn’t stand watching you lose 21-0. Man, what a dumb decision I made to leave.

After arriving home, I flipped on the TV during the 4th quarter and it was still 21-0, but you were driving the team down the field, so I decided to stay tuned. In the last seven minutes of the game, you dragged the Titans across the goal for 24 points to win the game. You are an amazing quarterback. It was an amazing win. Heck, even Pacman Jones grabbed an intersection to help turn the game around.

Since apparently, you are going to revive the whole Music City miracle thing, I’ve decided to revive my never-give-up fanatic thing — and never leave early again. Gee, I may even go dig out that blue face-paint that I put away a few years ago. Who knows, maybe I’ll even revive the Pacman Fan club? Naaaah.

Your fan,

Rex

  • YOU LEFT THE GAME EARLY????

    Oh my goodness. I guess I shouldn’t lambaste you too badly since you are already repenting. But seriously, where will I get my game-time highlights from if you LEAVE EARLY??? Please don’t ever do something like that again.

  • I was watching from here in NY and I was wondering if you were at the game. I would have done the same in your shoes! What a finish.

  • And I would like to personally thank Vince Young (and the rest of the Tittans) for helping the Cowboys jump out to a one game lead over the Giants in the NFC East!
