Sappy football story
Young surprises McNair's sons

ESPN.com news services
For one day at least, Vince Young stepped up to try to fill the void for the late Steve McNair's two young sons, the Tennessean reported Thursday.

Young surprised 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."

Julie Dilworth, admissions director at St. Paul Christian Academy, lauded Young's actions.

"It was a great, great gesture," Dilworth told the Tennessean. "All the kids had been talking about the dads' breakfast and were wondering what was going to happen with them.

"They were thrilled ... the boys came to school with huge smiles on their faces."

1. Thanks for sharing that.
and it makes me grateful for the many ordinary, every day people who have stepped up for my own little boy.

2. That was a wonderful thing for him to do and I'm sure those boys will
always remember it.

5. Good for him
Even though I strongly dislike VY and the Titans, this was an honorable deed he did.
