Titans Witness Solar Eclipse After Practice


It seems like the Titans make the playoffs about as often as we see a solar eclipse.
They haven’t been to the postseason since 2008.
But maybe this will be Tennessee’s year.
Practice was cut short on Monday afternoon so the team could witness the solar eclipse.
The guys were ready with their protective glasses, and they got a pretty good view in Nashville.
Tight end Delanie Walker said that’s pretty dope.
Offensive lineman Taylor Lewan said it feels like we’re dreaming.
But Monday’s eclipse was as real as it gets.
Said Walker:”That’s a memory we ain’t going to forget. Hopefully we have a good year. Go to the playoffs and Super Bowl. So this will all be in our memory.”
Said head coach Mike Mularkey:”I thought it was a neat experience. Glad to be out there with our team. See something I know a lot of people drove a long way to get here to see. And we got to see it together. That was incredible. Incredible experience.”

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
