Thoughts from this weekend of Titans Training Camp - 08/03/14

Due to the night practice, I wasn't able to blog about the Titans first appearance at LP Field. Today's practice was short and sweet.  No pads.  My guess is partially because of the night scrimmage on Saturday, partially because it's basically getaway day for the team.  They headed down to Georgia for tomorrow's practices with the Atlanta Falcons.  Anyway, here are my observations from the past couple of days...

1)  The following four wide receivers are fighting for three spots: Marc Mariani, Michael Preston, Brian Robiskie and Derek Hagan.  Nate Washington, Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter are no-brainers.  I highly doubt the Titans will keep 7 receivers.  Right now, I'd say Mariani, Robiskie and Hagan have looked the best.  We'll see if/how that changes once the games begin.

2)  The Titans kicker on opening day may or may not be on the roster right now.  Neither Maikon Bonani or Travis Coons has looked good.   At all.  I'm not sure if Coach Ken Whisenhunt is waiting to see what veteran becomes available or what.  I hope it doesn't wind up costing the team a win or even worse, a playoff spot due to a missed kick.  Paging Rob Bironas...

3)  Justin Hunter's lack of consistency continues to be a problem.  I was singing his praises just a day or two ago.  Saturday night, he was awful.  Drops are an issue.  So is his concentration.  If it's frustrating to me, I can only imagine what his coaches and teammates think.

4)  There will definitely be fights in Flowery Branch.  With temperatures in the 90s and two teams licking their chops to hit a guy in a different colored jersey, you can bet there will be punches thrown.  According to guys in the locker room, the prime candidate to mix it up is Center Brian Schwenke.  He didn't exactly deny it either.  Oh by the way, the "Hard Knocks" crew will be there.  Talk about blood in the shark tank!  Should be an interesting day with the Falcons. 

That's all I've got for now.  I'm off the next couple of days.  See you Wednesday!

TOFURKY PARDON

SEATTLE (AP) -- Turkey pardons are common this time of year, as even the president gets in on the act. But Seattle Mayor Ed Murray is sparing something else -- a tofu turkey. The Seattle Times reports his honor pardoned a Tofurky at City Hall. The mayor's spokesman says it's an effort to draw attention to hunger in the community and to poke a little a fun at Seattle's granola image. But the faux turkey won't be sent to a tofu farm. It's being donated to a local food bank.

PRISON CHAPEL SEX

ROCKVIEW, Pa. (AP) -- It sounds like a scene from "Orange is the New Black." A female prison guard trainee in Pennsylvania is charged with having sex with a male inmate. According to the state Department of Corrections, 27-year-old Rebecca Zong hooked up with the inmate in a prison chapel. Authorities say while the sex was consensual, it's illegal for guards to have sexual contact with prisoners.

BOURBON AUCTION

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- It's one expensive bottle of booze. The first bottle of bourbon by Kentucky's Boundary Oak Distillery has sold for more than 28-grand. It likely ranks among the most expensive bottles of bourbon ever. Boundary Oak plans to fill its first bourbon barrel in December, and the whiskey will age for two years before bottling. The winning bidder gets the first bottle from that barrel. The distillery says the buyer is from Hardin County but is asking to remain anonymous. The money is going to charity.

MODEL DRIVE-IN

GOSHEN, Ind. (AP) -- The days of Bower's Drive-In are long gone in Goshen. Folks will be able to revisit the popular Indiana restaurant, but on a much smaller scale. Dain Morehouse and Jim Mauer are recreating the drive-in for the Indiana Model Train Visitors Club. Morehouse tells The Goshen News Bower's was a popular date spot, and place for cruisers to turn their cars around. The detail on the model includes Bower's menu that ran along the top of the building.
