The Houston school district sent out a proud announcement saying they are partnering with Vince Young on a golf tournament that will raise $110,000 in scholarships.
The Madison High alumnus' event will be April 4, and news coverage would be appreciated.
Shortly after sending the announcement, HISD spokesman Jason Spencer sent a follow-up:
Attention Reporters and Editors:
Vince Young will not be answering questions about the Tennessee Titans at this event. Thank you.
No, thank you, sir. We wouldn't want to be bothered asking questions about the only interesting thing worth asking Vince Young about.
