The Vincent Young Raffle

Well if Reggie Bush gets a sweepstakes, I figure Vincent Young deserves a raffle. With a 22 point Nielson-index rating (35.6 million of the 130 million American TV households watched), the entire country was able to see just how much Vincent Young meant to his undefeated Texas Longhorn team.

Agent Spotlight: Mark Stevens

I wish this blog existed in the height of the T.O. fiesta (I figure fiesta could fit the description), although that issue is not overwith anyway.
