Nashville, TN – Tennessee Titans Players return to Saint Thomas this week after a five-week break. They have been off since June 19th, when they participated in their final minicamp practice, the culmination of a transformative offseason.
Since the Titans concluded their 2013 season December 29th at LP Field, team president/CEO Tommy Smith, Ruston Webster and Ken Whisenhunt have overseen roster changes, facility upgrades, technological improvements and staff turnover.
Clarksville, TN – I planned to go to Brazil for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, but I heard one of my exes had become a witch doctor and was a big fan of Ghana, so I decided not to risk it. Here are my sports FourThoughts for this week.
It is no secret I am a Spurs fan. Just like heroes at the end of old kung fu movies, standing over the defeated body of the villain who killed their master, I am basking in the glow of satisfied vengeance. With three dominating performances in a row, the Spurs avenged last season’s heartbreaking loss to the Heat and became the 2013-14 NBA Champions.
