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.

Cheering for Philadelphia today. They are playing today with a backup quarterback among other parts of a unlikely story. We need more stories like this.
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 Philadelphia Eagles will take on defending champion New England Patriots in Minneapolis at US Bank Stadium. It’s going to be a great game. I predict most of America is going to cheer for the Eagles. I have friends on both sides of the contest.
