Last night I did something I rarely do - I sat down and watched a sporting event, the Rose Bowl national collegiate football championship between the USC Trojans and the University of Texas Longhorns.
It was a real nailbiter of a game, and probably the most exciting final two minutes of football that I've seen in a long time. Texas pulled off some of the most flawlessly-executed offensive football that I've ever seen. And Vince Young was simply unstoppable. Maybe no one remembers the late-70's Dallas Cowboys anymore, but I immediately thought of Roger Staubach in his prime, looking for receivers, spotting a hole, ducking the ball, and charging, slipping through tackles and barging his way to a first down. Vince Young rushed for almost as many yards as he passed, and scored three of UT's touchdowns. I predict that he will be a very wealthy man when he joins the NFL.
Congrats, Texas Longhorns!
