Titans Fans are encouraged to click here and vote T-Rac for the "Most Awesome Mascot."

Voting continues through Feb. 20 and the winner will be announced during the "Hall of Game" Awards on Friday, Feb. 25 at 6 p.m. (CT) on Cartoon Network.

"This is certainly a great honor for T-Rac and the Titans organization," said Don MacLachlan, Titans Executive VP-Administration / Facilities.  "This selection shows that T-Rac is among the crème of the crop of mascots and we hope all of his fans will log on to the website to vote for him for this award!"

The "Hall of Game Awards" is described by Cartoon Network as a high-energy, off-the-wall, multi-platform experience and will be hosted by skateboarding legend Tony Hawk.  In addition to the Most Awesome Mascot competition, the show will recognize winners in six additional categories.

While T-Rac typically lets his actions speak more than words, he expressed his feelings as only T-Rac can with the following thoughts about the upcoming "Hall of Game" awards program:

"I am very excited to dust off my T-Rac tux and travel to Los Angeles and represent not only the Titans, but the NFL, at this red carpet event.  It's very cool to be nominated for an award that has other categories that include LeBron James, Venus Williams, David Beckham and many other celebrities.  Of course, I'm sure they are equally impressed to be listed on the same show that includes T-Rac!"

Other awards being presented are "He's Got Game," the award for best male athlete; "She Got Game," for best female athlete; "That's How I Roll," given to the most stylish athlete; "Alti-dude," awarded to an alternative sports athlete; "Dance Machine," the award for best celebratory dance; and "My Bad," given to the best sports blooper.
