Pro Football Hall Of Famer Terrell Owens

One of the greatest football players to ever play the game came from right here at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, my hometown university. Chattanooga has something to be very proud of in Terrell Owens for his hard work and dedication to becoming one of the greats in professional Football.

It was an honor to see him be inducted into The Pro Football Hall of Fame today. There was a lot of love at McKenzie Arena and it was a homecoming of sorts. Past and present Mocs were in attendance to see one of the greats share his experiences and to perhaps inspire one of the student athletes in attendance to become a hall of famer themselves. Terrell did it his own way and that is another discussion for another day but I can say his acceptance speech was one of the most heart-felt, honest and authentic you would ever hear. As a Mocs fan from way back this was a once in a lifetime experience I will never forget.

It’s Super Bowl Sunday in America #sb52

This evening in Minneapolis, Minnesota at US Bank Stadium the defending Super Bowl Champions New England Patriots will take on the upstart Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl 52. This is the biggest one day sporting event in America. The Patriots have won 5 championships and a win for The Eagles will be their first. I am pulling for Philadelphia tonight just because they haven’t won the big game in their history. Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback in NFL history and he hopes to cement his growing legend and legacy. I am looking forward to the game and spending time with family eating a lot of good things.

The College Football National Championship Game: Georgia vs. Alabama

I like the Alabama Crimson Tide, I do. However my very deep Georgia roots have compelled me to cheer for The Georgia Bulldogs in the college football national championship game on Monday. This is going to be one for the history books either way. Georgia hasn’t had a national title in decades so perhaps them winning this is not a bad thing. The state of Georgia is all abuzz over this game and hopes and dreams are riding high.

I hope my family members who went to Georgia Tech won’t disown me or something like that.
