Is it time to be frightened? - 08/24/14

I wouldn't blame Titans fans if they saw last night's defensive efforts and said, "Well, the D is going to be awful this year."  Matt Ryan tore the secondary apart with 224 yards passing and 2 TD's in the first half. Devin Hester put a move on Jason McCourty that made him fall down on the first Atlanta touchdown, and Julio Jones is probably still breaking tackles from the second score.

Here's a half-hearted attempt to cheer you up. First, the team and the coaching staff all keep saying that the squad is still earning and adjusting to Ray Horton's new defense. Seems a little late in the process for the first teamers to look this bad at it, but hey - They still have two weeks until the season opener. Also, Ken Whisenhunt noted earlier today that they haven't schemed anything specifically for opponents yet. This one, I'll buy. Finally, someone on twitter pointed out that the Colts made 8 playoff appearances with just 9 preseason wins. Sooo .. anyone feel better?

Didn't think so.

MARYLAND AGENCY-BEDBUGS

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Some Maryland state workers get to sleep in today -- because of bedbugs. Employees on one floor at the Department of the Environment headquarters in Baltimore have the day off. A spokesman says the agency is conducting a comprehensive inspection for bedbugs. The pests were discovered last month. The agency has hired an exterminator to treat the office building.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL-WEDDINGS

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Wedding planners have to keep an eye on the calendar and the football schedule. Fall weddings present a challenge, you don't want to get hitched when many of the guests would rather be watching the game. Professional wedding planner Kavonda L. Rogers of Montgomery, Alabama, recalls "World War III" nearly broke out a few years ago. She says a bride settled on a wedding date not realizing it was the same day as the South's oldest football rivalry, Auburn and Georgia. But Rogers worked out a compromise. She had a big-screen TV in a room right off the reception area.

FOLSOM FIELD-BEER

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- Beer is back in the cheap seats for Colorado fans. Wine and beer have returned to the regular seating areas at University of Colorado, Boulder's Folsom Field for the first time in nearly 20 years. The Daily Camera reports thirsty fans were able to get a brew inside the stadium during the matchup against Arizona State. Beer and wine had only been available in premium seating areas. University police say lifting the ban is aimed at keeping people in the stadium. Before, fans would go to the parking lot to drink then return to their seats.

OHIO TOWN-MYSTERY ANIMAL

LEIPSIC, Ohio (AP) -- There's a mystery animal prowling the streets of a small northwest Ohio town. The creature was first spotted September 7. One woman tells the (Findlay) Courier it was white and gray with a large bushy tail. She says it definitely looked wild and was larger than her golden retriever. Some folks in Leipsic (LIHP'-sihk) figure it's a wolf, others are saying it could be a large coyote or a wolf mix. A state wildlife officer who spotted the mystery creature says it's probably someone's pet.
