Enough changes for now. - 04/25/14

What a year it's been so far with coaching changes in our sports market! So far, the Titans, Vandy football, UT men's basketball, TSU men's basketball, and the Predators have had or will have coaching changes. It's only April!

The jury is out on the hires that have been made so far, and we won't know until teams take the ice, court or field that they've made the right choices. Everyone loves the new hire - until a team starts losing.

The Preds are the only hire left to go. David Poile has said that he isn't in a rush to make a decision on the new leader for the team, and will probably get deeper into the Stanley Cup playoffs before he makes the final say.

Untl then, it's nice to have a few minutes to catch our breath. A lot has happened in 2014, and there are a lot of new coaches to get to know.

ESCALATOR-PANTS

SOMERVILLE, Mass. (AP) -- It's awfully cold in the Boston area to go without pants. Transit officials say a commuter riding the "T" lost his trousers to an escalator. A spokesman for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority tells the Boston Herald the man's pants got caught in the escalator. The commuter wasn't hurt, but he was left standing in his shorts while his trousers were stuck at the bottom of the escalator. Transit officials are urging commuters to be mindful of loose clothing.

DOG BREEDS-NYC

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Big Apple is giving little Frenchies some love. The French bulldog is now the most popular breed in New York City. The American Kennel Club says the flat-faced, bat-eared little dogs move past the bulldog to the top spot. The AKC says the rest of the top five in NYC are Labrador retrievers, German shepherds and golden retrievers. Nationally, Labs stay number-one for a record 24th year.

COCA-COLA BOTTLE

ATLANTA (AP) -- It's the real thing -- but is it real art? The curvy Coca-Cola bottle is being celebrated by an Atlanta art museum. The High Museum is opening an exhibit tomorrow to mark the 100th anniversary of the iconic Coke bottle. Visitors will be able to see original designs, a prototype of the 1915 bottle and the work of artists who have been inspired by the now-classic bottle. "The Coca-Cola Bottle: An American Icon at 100" runs through October 4.

NEW BABY ORCA

SEATTLE (AP) -- Scientists are seeing the splash of little whale fins. A third baby orca has been spotted off the coast of Washington state. Brad Hanson, a biologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, says the baby killer whale looks great and is very active. It's the third baby born to whale pods in recent months in the area. But the experts warn the orca population is still dangerously low.
