I’ve been watching a bit of ESPN today, and all they keep jabbering about is the Heisman Trophy, and whether Vince Young should now receive the 2005 award.
My take: Who gives a shit?
Seriously. We’re talking about a trophy here. A trophy. Not Einstein theory. Not world peace. Not life. Not death. A trophy. A football trophy. From five years ago. Hell, Young doesn’t even seem to want the damn thing. Happened so long ago, I don’t blame him. The guy has moved on. We all have.
That said, Reggie Bush just strikes me as a nothing. Kids beg for his autograph, fans wear his jersey—and I find him to be a yutz. OK player, but far from the phenom we expected when he entered the league. Just a good, solid player who can’t run inside and does some occassionally amazing things to remind us what we all thought he was going to be.
