Vince Young Learning Lessons From Leinart Pics

Last week, some snapshots surfaced of a shirtless Vince Young partying with his pals. So, the Titans QB took time on Thursday to say he’s sorry to any kids who might’ve seen the pics.

The TENNESSEAN reports that Young apologized to, um, young fans for the photos, saying he wants to be a good role model for children:

“I was having a good time with friends … and you know how it is, as a quarterback you can’t have too much fun. I blame myself for that, but at the same time you have to watch certain things.”

Looks like Vince is starting to learn some lessons from Matt Leinart.

Over a month ago, photos leaked out of Leinart living it up with some local underage Arizona ladies, featuring beer bongs, hot tubs & other fun activities. And of course, the blogosphere & media had a field day, even though it was no picnic for Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhut.

And now Vince seems to understand the folly of flashing out some fun:

“That is the life of a quarterback, somebody of my status. I guess somebody was trying to make some money and sold the picture to the web site. But at the same time that is the life I chose to live. But it is not going to stop me from having fun. I just have to watch myself.”

Honestly, it wasn’t that bad of a photo. Maybe the appearance of a chick here or a babe there would have quelled concerns about Vince being spotted at a sausage fest. And it would have been less worrisome had Vince been out in the open air sans-shirt instead of a small room.

But shirtless celebrity does have it’s advantages. Just ask Jeff Reed.
