The article focuses on Vince Young of the football team of the University of Texas in Austin, Texas which ended University of Southern California winning streak. At the post-match party, no one was going to stop Young from drinking. It was a national championship game for the ages, supersized with excitement and overloaded with theatrics that had Texas fans two-stepping. Young danced. He was good, too. He swayed and swiveled. He even gyrated like a halftime performer. And he did it all with that crystal football in his hands. That's when Young flashed the Heisman pose. INSET: Texas two-step.
