Bright & Early: Waking Up In The Tundra Edition

January 4, 2010 10:00 AM 2 comments

Good morning, Nashville. We’re not quite sure which is more bewildering to us this morning: That white stuff falling from the sky or the 13-degree reading on the thermometer. Or maybe it’s the 200 crazies brave folks who hopped into the Percy Priest Lake on New Years Day as part of the YMCA’s annual Percy Priest Polar Bear Plunge. We’ve had quite the cold snap since Christmas, making the plunge a little more polar with temperatures dipping to 28 degrees and patches of ice floated along the shore. We can’t say we’ll be joining them next year, but we sure admire their commitment.

    Just a heads up. There are only 16 games in an NFL season. So going 9-9 isn't possible. They actually ended up 8-8.

    Typo! Thanks for the catch.
