Why is Young apologizing?

Titans QB Vince Young is apologizing for those famous photos of him having a good time posted at TMZ. Is it the fact that he wasn't wearing a shirt or that he was drinking alcohol because those are the two things that keep getting mentioned every time the photos come up? There doesn't seem to be any problem with either in these Super Bowl commercials posted at the NFL's site.

Children are impressionable, after all. If they see a hazy, amateur camera phone photo of a player actually enjoying himself, then they will surely forget all the slick, expensive ads full of flesh and alcohol produced by marketing professionals directly targeting football fans of all ages.

Vince Young's night of blowing off a little steam has been crashed by the strange politics of alcohol and "What about the children?" in this country.
