Favorite moment from the 2019 season?
Oh, it's gotta be that final pass from Brady right into the hands of Logan Ryan for the touchdown in the playoffs. But my personal favorite thing from last year was getting to be part of the #9 and #27 jersey retirement on the field during halftime. Carrying out and unfurling that #27 flag with my fellow PSL founders and being part of the McNair family's and Eddie George's special moment, was priceless. Oh, and Vrabel yelling at us to "Get that flag off the field!" as the halftime clock hit zero!
Favorite Titans Player?
Delanie Walker has been my favorite for a few years, and I'm going to have to find a new favorite player this season.
Favorite Nissan Stadium Moment?
Being at the first ever playoff game in Nashville to witness the Music City Miracle. It was amazing! All the fans were jumping up and down yelling "Run!" You could feel the stadium actually shaking!
Favorite Away Game Moment?
Back during the McNair/George days, my friends and I would travel up to Cincinnati. The Titans were kicking some Bengals butt that day, but not before a streaker ran across the field and did a little dance on the 50-yard line. All the players just stopped, pointed, and laughed. I have pictures.
What are some of your game day traditions?
The drive up I-65 with flags flying! Wearing my personalized jersey! Sometimes dying my hair blue! Sometimes tailgating, but most of the time I hope for a victory dinner at Olive Garden after the game.
What is one item on your Titans bucket list?
Several things... to go to a Super Bowl and see the Titans bring home the Lombardi Trophy. (That's on everybody's bucket list, right?) And when the mortgage is paid off... upgrading my seats! And a parking pass.
What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Be the kindness you want to see in the world.
Tell us a little about your life outside of the Titans.
I am a care coordinator for a long-term care insurance administrator, a job that I love, because I spend the day helping the elderly folks. I also have 10 dogs (yes 10... a few of them are rescues, 2 are special needs that require extra help, many of them are seniors, and a back yard full of husky/wolf dogs). I also have 2 turtles and 1 rescued sulcata tortoise named Samwell (Sam) Tarly. One of my favorite things to do is painting animals... not actually painting the animal a different color... but an actual painting on canvas or my pets or other people's pets. I'm also the Senior Regional Ambassador for The NASCAR Foundation for the Nashville area, and am totally psyched about NASCAR coming back to Nashville next year!
