A wet Saturday night - 08/11/14

The Titans are back on the practice field today after a day off, and a 20-16 preseason victory over the Packers. You can certainly find some pros and cons with the wet weather Saturday night at LP Field. Ken Whisenhunt was praising his team for their fourth quarter comeback, and willingness to play through the tough conditions. That was good. The bad - they didn't get to see much from the offensive starters, before they were pulled in the second quarter. Jake Locker threw just two passes, and completed just one. So, to use a phrase, it was a wash as far as evaluating the first teamers.

Here's the best news about this week's second preseason game. The Titans take on the Saints in the Superdome, with the word Dome being key - no rainout guaranteed Friday night. Just watch out for the power to go out in the Dome. We've seen that before, right Ravens and 49ers?

SEAL RELEASE

CHARLESTOWN, R.I. (AP) -- It's a rescue -- sealed with seal pups. Four seal pups have been released into the wild from a beach in Rhode Island. Orion, Bullwinkle, Freya and Loki were rescued separately in Maine. They've been rehabilitated by a team at the Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut. The little seals even had to be taught how to fish, because they had never hunted on their own. The seal pups doubled in weight over the last few months and all are now healthy.

DRUGS IN STUFFED ANIMAL

PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (AP) -- How cute -- a stuffed animal wearing an anti-drug T-shirt. But New York state troopers weren't fooled and say there was more than stuffing in the stuffed lion. Police report finding pot, cocaine and LSD hidden inside the toy. Troopers busted Gregory Bolongnese (bol-OH'-nays) at a bus station near the Canadian border. The 22-year-old Bolongnese is now facing multiple drug charges.

COOKING INTRUDER

ROCKLAND, Mass. (AP) -- Massachusetts police have busted a man making a racket in the kitchen -- because it wasn't his kitchen. Officers in Rockland say a homeowner woke up to a loud bang in the kitchen and called the cops. The homeowner found a stranger cooking corn. The man refused to leave and the two briefly scuffled. The Enterprise of Brockton reports officers arrested 69-year-old John Dalton. Police say he was drunk and forced his way into the home through a side door.
