You're in luck: I live an hour away from Nashville (home of the Titans)... and I just don't really like sports. Never did. So you're all good with me

EDIT: It was a good day today. We held our annual Patriot Day event on the Courthouse Square to honor our first responders. It was standing room only!

The only real somber part of the whole thing was - naturally - MY part: for the first time in my life, I had to present an award posthumously to the widow. I was nervous as all get-out... from carefully crafting the speech to be respectful of her recent loss, to actually figuring out what to say to her when I handed her the plaque. All in all, it worked out well... I got that feeling, anyway.

I hope I never have to do that again. I enjoy doing this sort of thing... but this took it to a whole different level in terms of sensitivity.

Nice to be DONE with it and back in the Watering Hole
