Tennessee Titans

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson has had three offseasons to mold the roster to his liking and can point to tangible evidence of progress. After being named to his current post in January 2016, the team tripled its win total from 2015, going from three wins to nine wins and earning him the additional title from Amy Adams Strunk of executive vice president.

Her confidence was rewarded in 2017, when the Titans earned their first postseason berth since the 2008 season and won their first postseason game since the 2003 campaign.

Dodging the Roadkill: Instant Replay

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Am I the only biker who replays his trips and all the potential hazards, or “close calls” I encountered along the way?  

It’s a curious thing for me that after I return home, I replay all the “potential” incidents that “almost” happened while I was on the road.  I’m so focused on the road, the traffic, the weather and all that surrounds me at the time, that it doesn’t quite register, but for some reason, I replay all the “close calls” I had.

I distinctly remember the time I motored out to Texas, (which I LOVE by the way) and as soon as I got on the four lane roads, and the speed limit is 75, I passed a couple of “good old boys” who were hogging the left lane and when I sped past them, I gave them “the look” and when I turned my attention back to my lane, I was just about out of pavement.  I was just a few feet from the guardrail and I had to whip myself back into shape.

Dodging the Roadkill: Getting Your Second Wind

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN -First, let me apologize for not posting any new content in a while.  I took a week off and went to the beach with my son and his family.  As grandparents, we serve a vital function on the family vacation. 

Babysitters!  We loved it!

I rode the Harley while following two cars.  My wife in one, daughter-in-law in the other.  Two kids and a baby.  The interstate is how we went.  

I was ok until about 2:00pm when the temperature hit 98 degrees.  We stopped frequently, I kept hydrated, lots of gatorade and water.  I travel with a water bottle, so other than the heat, I was ok.

Out on the back roads.
