Nashville, TN – If you’re “seeing red” this week, it’s a good thing! Red is the color of the week and beyond, marking American Heart Month and the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement.
National Wear Red Day is this Friday, February 7th, a day when everyone wears red to support women’s fight against heart disease, their No. 1 killer. More women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined. In Tennessee, about 9000 women die each year from cardiovascular disease. Yet up to 80% of cardiovascular disease is preventable through healthy living choices we make every day.

“This is a big day for this franchise,” said Titans President/CEO Tommy Smith. “Ken is a well-respected coach in this league and I am looking forward to seeing his vision become reality for this team. He has a history of building successful offenses and took Arizona to a Super Bowl as a head coach. We all share a common goal for this team and that is to build a consistent winner. I want to thank Ruston for his hard work in the process and the quality candidates that he brought in for interviews.”
Nashville, TN – A homeless kitten at the riverfront I call Tiny Titan scratched me today. It didn’t break the surface of my skin. It was not quite paper-cut serious and barely visible—done only because I had tried to pet his head while he was eating from the Friskies can I’d brought him. But the “wound” cut deeper into my psyche than could be easily understood.
For the past nine months, I’d been feeding the feral cats that live along the Cumberland River in Downtown, Nashville. (For those of you who don’t live in Nashville, the downtown riverfront boasts the historic Fort Nashborough, park and concert open space areas, and the Cumberland River Greenway—a nearly 8-mile walking/jogging path—with the Titans Football Stadium in view on the other side.)
Nashville, TN – On Saturday afternoon, January 4th, the Tennessee Titans announced that Mike Munchak would be leaving the organization. Later that evening, General Manager Ruston Webster spoke with reporters.
“I want to open up today by first of all by thanking Mike Munchak for all his hard work. I have so much respect for him, not only as a coach but also as a person. We worked extremely well together and I have always appreciated how professional he has been with me in every way, said Webster. “I think I probably respect few people more in this league than I do him.”
“First I want to thank Mike Munchak for his professionalism through this process and thank him for his years of dedication to the Titans/Oilers organization. He is first-class and I wish him and his family nothing but the best. I also want to praise Tommy Smith for his involvement during the week-long process. He was thorough and thoughtful.
