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?

ASSAULT RIFLE SANTA

CHICO, Calif. (AP) -- Santa's armed -- and that has some people upset in Northern California. A billboard outside of Chico has a picture of Santa Claus holding an assault rife. The billboard also has the slogan, "We build AR's for Santa." It's for the Down Range shooting range and gun store. The range owners tell Action News Now they didn't intend to make the ad offensive. They say plenty of people give guns for Christmas. But one woman tells the TV station she doesn't want her son to see Santa holding a gun.

KETTLE SURPRISE

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- The $1,000 bill mystery continues. Every year since at least 1978, someone has slipped a $1,000 bill into a Salvation Army kettle in Morgantown, West Virginia. Salvation Army Lt. Allen Adkins is new to the charity in Morgantown. He says he has ever seen such a big bill. They were taken out circulation in the late 1960's. Adkins says he wants the donor to know that the Salvation Army is thankful for the gift.

SATANIC DISPLAY-CAPITOL

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- It's Christians versus Satanists on the Michigan Capitol grounds. The Detroit chapter of the Satanic Temple has set up its "Snaketivity Scene" at the Capitol. It features a snake offering a book called "Revolt of the Angels" as a gift. The snake is wrapped around the Satanic cross. State Senator Rick Jones has a competing scene -- a traditional Nativity display with baby Jesus, Joseph and Mary. Under Capitol rules the displays have to be taken down each night.

FIREFIGHTERS-COATS

NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) -- Some Massachusetts firefighters are thinking warm instead of hot. Firefighters will deliver brand-new, American-made coats on fire engines to kids at the New Bedford Boys and Girls Club today. Tomorrow, coats are going to the Holyoke Boys and Girls Club. Lynn firefighters distributed coats to children in that city last Friday. The coat giveaway is run by the Professional Firefighters of Massachusetts union, which raised $23,000 to buy coats for 700 needy children this year.
