    The guy who arrived at Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday in knee-high, lime green socks, canvas shoes and riding a bicycle — just as he does every day since he has no car in Cincinnati — arrived in the middle of Vince Young's back early in the second quarter, thanks to a blind-side assault on the unsuspecting Tennessee quarterback.....
