One teen in Texas recently received a 16th birthday party for the ages. His celebratory bash included a trio of Houston Texans cheerleaders, a video message from NBA legend Dikembe Mutombo, and an appearance by former University of Texas quarterback Vince Young.From Culture Map:Justin Smith has to be the envy of the entire Pearland community after the 16th birthday bash that his parents, Alicia and Lance Smith, gave for the teen in their Brittany Estates home. The sports-themed party (think University of Texas everything) featured two heroes of the playing field and three hotties. "He was all smiles when the three Texans cheerleaders arrived," Alicia emailed, "and over the moon when Vince Young walked in! Throw in a video birthday wish from Dikembe Mutombo (who was unable to attend as he was in route from Los Angeles to Atlanta) and add Roberto Clemente and his fiancé Melissa Lima to the mix and he was pretty much walking on air."Justin and 75 of his friends romped through a teenage playground complete with an entrance gate following the Longhorn theme, a mechanical bull, jousting station, photo booth, DJ and a light show. The only gifts greater for Justin than the generosity of his adoring parents were the Vince Young-autographed football and the Roberto Clemente T-shirt.Heck, all I got for my 16th birthday was a cell phone and a homemade cake.
