Heisman Finalists

In a move that comes shocking to few, USC running back Reggie Bush and QB Matt Leinart, along with Texas quarterback Vince Young, were formally invited to New York as the finalists for this year's Heisman Trophy today.

All three have been jockeying for position all year, with Mr. Bush and Mr. Young making strong bids in their final regular season games. But your little sister could tell you that Bush will run, cut, and juke his way to win the most prestigious award.

I was a bit surprised that Notre Dame pretty boy Brady Quinn didn't get the free trip to the Big Apple. Despite over 3,000 yards passing, 32 touchdowns and only 7 INTs, the junior quarterback will be watching the award presentation from his living room.

Tough luck, buddy. But hey, at least you got a much undeserved trip to the Fiesta Bowl.

In other news: The Toronto Blue Jays, already big players in the offseason's free agent market, signed Anna Benson to a 4-year, $50 million deal to look cute in the dugout.
