Titans Caravan kicks off - 05/13/14

The annual Tennessee Titans Caravan has rolled out.  First Florence, then Madison, Alabama last night.  Fittingly, considering Chance Warmack was one of the players along for the initial ride.

The Titans offensive lineman starred at the University of Alabama during his college days.  Therefore, he was right at home on this trip, as you can see in the picture to the right.

Crimson Tide fans lined up to get autographs and pose for pictures with Warmack and Titans center Brian Schwenke.  As people like to say in the South, everyone had a "big" time with a couple of "big" linemen.

The Titans Caravan will make stops in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Alabama between now and May 17.  Plus, there will be a special stop in Johnson City on June 13th.

Tonight it's just outside Memphis in Collierville.  I'll try to bring you pictures of that on FOX 17 News at Nine and Ten.

FIST BUMPS-GERMS

NEW YORK (AP) -- Worried about germs? Then, bump rather than shake. Fist bumps spread only one-20th of the amount of bacteria compared to a handshake. Researchers writing in the American Journal of Infection Control report a high-five is about half as germy as a shake. So, President Barack Obama maybe on to something with his preference for a fist bump.

NUDE MODELS-MANHATTAN

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York really was "the naked city" -- at least on Saturday. Artists painted the bodies of 40 nude models, turning an entrance to Central Park into a celebration of the human form. Artist Andy Golub staged what he called the inaugural Bodypainting Day. It only happened after a long legal battle. Golub and a model were arrested in 2011 during a body-painting project in Times Square. The city paid model Zoe West a $15,000 settlement after she sued. Public nudity is legal in the Big Apple when part of a performance.

'SPIDER-MAN' CHARGED

NEW YORK (AP) -- Say it ain't so Spidey! Spider-Man is charged with slugging a police officer in New York's Times Square. In this case, the web-slinger is Junior Bishop. Authorities say he was dressed as Spider-Man and demanded that tourists pay him to pose for pictures. According to officers, Bishop was yelling and cursing, then punched a police officer in the face. He now faces a number of charges, including assault and resisting arrest.

FEMALE OFFICIAL

UNDATED (AP) -- Cat Conti is earning her stripes, as a college football official. She'll be on the field at the Southeast Missouri State-Kansas game on September 6, making her the first woman to work a football game in the Big 12 Conference. But Conti never was interested in sports growing up in Southern California. She wanted to be a Hollywood star. She says she developed a passion for football while in college and became fascinated with the chain crew. Conti went on to be a ninth grade English and drama teacher, while serving as a part-time official. She went all-in on zebra stripes about four years ago. Now, she says she just wants to be treated like one of the guys.
