Very glad that Vince Young is getting this chance with the Browns

The best play I have ever seen. My favorite Sports Illustrated cover ever.

The best play and game I have ever seen. My favorite Sports Illustrated cover ever. Just looking at this cover brings back memories of pure passion and bliss.

When Vince Young suited up for the Green Bay Packers last year in preseason, I had wished the Browns would give him a chance. He is one of my favorite players ever. I was surprised he didn’t make the Packers final roster. His play at the University of Texas was literally magical.

The 2006 Rose Bowl National Championship game will be one I never forget. That touchdown run on 4th and 5 is one I will also never forget. That is one of those moments that I even remember exactly where I was watching it. Unforgettable. I hated USC then. In fact, my favorite team was whoever was playing them.

USC was so good. They always won. When Texas met them in the title game, I never wanted a team to win more. Still to this day I’m not sure if I’ve ever rooted for a team harder.

Vince Young’s performance that night was the best I’ve ever seen. The joy he brought me was so great that it actually has pained me to see him go downhill the last five years or so.

I think he is talented. In preseason last year, he completed more then half of his passes which may not sound that great, but he hadn’t played in a while.

I can’t wait to see what he does with this new chance. I wish him the best of luck. Because of him I love college football as much as I do, which also was the time I started following NFL like a maniac. So who knows, I possibly owe my love of football to him.

I’ll never forget what he did that night in Pasadena and I hope he makes it on a NFL roster for the entirety of the 2014 season. It is an honor to have him on the Browns.



Sports that I want to see the most

San Diego has a lot of sporting events, but there are some other places I would like to go.

I want to go to a SEC football game. Seeing a game in an atmosphere like that would be awesome. I love SDSU football, but there isn’t much fan involvement. I would also like to see a high school football game in either Texas or Oklahoma. I’ve read Friday Night Lights and its looks pretty legit.

I would also like to go to basketball games at Kansas, Kentucky and Duke. Those places had some of the best players and they have so much history. I want to see what the fan support and particularly the student section is like and how it compares to SDSU’s student section, The Show. The traditions are what appeal to me the most.

The next event I want to go to is a major horse race like the Kentucky Derby, Preakness or Belmont. Those tracks have so much history.

I went to the 2009 NBA Draft but I want to go to another draft. It was one of the best events that I have ever been to. The suspense that comes with each pick is hard to beat.

I’d like to go to every NBA, NFL, MLB and NHL stadium but there are a few I would like to go to more then others.

Fenway Park is a place that I will not miss for anything. If they announce theirs only two years left or something, I would make sure that I get there in time.

Wrigley Field is another MLB stadium I would like to go to. It wouldn’t be that bad if I never make there though. I would rather go to most of the other places on this list. Lambeau Field is sort of the same way.

I’d like to see all of these places but for now I have the Padres, Chargers and Aztecs to enjoy.

Next years fantasy team

Next year I want to mold my fantasy team around Peyton Manning. I will draft him with my first choice if I have the chance. He put up some pretty great numbers this year and I don’t see a reason that will change.

In round two I intend to take either Eddie Lacy or Dez Bryant. I think Lacy will be a first rounder and I will draft him if Peyton Manning doesn’t make it to me. I think Bryant will be the best receiver next year and I will take him in a heartbeat if I have the chance.

In rounds three, four and five I will fill out my team needs at back and receiver. Keenan Allen is a guy I want but in my league, I don’t think he will make it to round three.

Last season tight end was my weakest position. I drafted one early and he didn’t produce so I cut him. The free agents I picked up were better. That is why I will probably wait until round eight or nine to draft one. I want to draft extra backs and receivers. You can never have enough.

I think Kenny Stills and Marvin Jones could both have great years.

If I’m not able to get Peyton Manning I would want either Russell Wilson or Philip Rivers. Both are very efficient who can put up huge numbers. I f Tony Romo can get back to full health, I think he will be a quality player.

Late in the draft, I want to draft guys with potential. Maybe it could be a first round rookie or a new free agent that might be able to break lose.

I want my kicker to be on a team that gets in the red zone a lot to guarantee points.

Every week I have a new defense. I like to find the team playing the worst offense each week. Hopefully I’ll have a solid team.
