Vince Young Enthusiasm

Well, hot damn! Via Deadspin, I just learned that Larry David is a Vince Young fan!

Yes, according to Sports Review Magazine, the Seinfeld creator who currently stars as himself in the HBO hit comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm begged the New York Jets to draft the former Longhorn superstar in last year's NFL draft:

Sports Illustrated just confirmed something relayed to us last year by a New York Jets assistant: Larry David is in regular communication with Jets brass and staff, relaying advice, especially at draft time. Now, David will soon dine with Jets GM, Scouting Director and even head coach Eric Mangini with his draft advice. This is no joke. Apparently David reads all the scouting reports, watches game film, breaks it down. Last year he begged the Jets to take Vince Young, who had a remarkable rookie year, despite our shouting that his Wonderlic proved he'd never navigate complicated NFL defensive schemes.

So, along with being one of the funniest human beings ever to live, Larry David is also a football junkie and has enough wits to recognize Vince Young's pro potential.

This more or less made my day...
