Not that there was any question what the greatest sports moment in 2006 was, but ESPN has made it official. Vince Young’s performance in the Rose Bowl and the Longhorns beating USC was ranked #1 by ESPN as the greatest sports story of 2006.

And to top it off, [tag]Vince Young[/tag] got yet another cover of a magazine, the latest issue of ESPN the Magazine.

Vince Young, ESPN Cover

What is with all of this love by ESPN for Vince lately? The upper execs can’t be too happy about this. I expect them to return to normal West Coast love soon.

Update: Looks like Yahoo agrees that the Rose Bowl was the best sports story. But take a look at #5, I am pretty sure it is now a bigger deal that the Texans didn’t draft VY, not Reggie.

    Man Texas is getting a ton of love right now. Just got off of and Texas is rated as the #1 overall football state again. #4 pro and #1 for high school and college. Could there be any better place to be from or to live in Texas, I think not!
