Tennessee makes some impressive additions

Drafting Vince Young, who was a do-it-all QB for the Texas Longhorns, was exciting news. From what I've heard about Vince, he 'll add a positive note to our games even if his first role is watching Billy Volek do the quarterbacking for awhile. We also got some seasoned players, and I am impressed with where they'r coming from. I want tickets to go see what David Givens, David Thornton and Chris Hope do for the Titans, and I think it helps that coming from the Patriots, the Colts, and the Steelers, they have all got recent experience of what winning feels like.

Titans' Home By Any Other Name

I'm past griping about corporate entities slapping their names onto everything in sports. I don't like it, but I'm resigned to it, since it is actually more the rule than the exception. Some of it, like the Peach Bowl turning into the Chik-fil-A Bowl, bugs me a lot. But the Tennesse Titans' home was pretty generic-sounding as "the Coliseum," so I'll still want tickets even if it is now LP Field. The only thing I'm worried about is that names that are initials seem to inspire misinterpretation...so Titans--do not end up in Last Place.
