Bright & Early: Hustle Back Edition

July 27, 2011 9:30 AM 3 comments

Good morning, Nashville. We’re not gonna lie: We were nearly convinced that football season wasn’t happening this year. However, the gates of the Baptist Sports Park swung wide open yesterday morning and many of our boys “shuffled” back into work after a 136-day vacation–or funemployment, if you will–following a new collective bargaining agreement reached between players and owners. (But seriously, “shuffled!?“) For those keeping track at home, our brand new rookie quarterback Jake Locker was one of the first through the gate, and the team managed to snatch up 14 free agents before the day was even over. And speaking of quarterbacks, the team finally struck a deal with former Seattle Seahawk Matt Hasselbeck in the wee hours of this morning , so it looks like we’ve finally filled that Vince Young-shaped hole once and for all. Training camp officially starts Friday and we certainly hope they can shuffle their way to the Super Bowl somehow, or at least a winning season.

    The Eastland Kroger IS getting remodeled. They are also putting a Kroger gas station where the car dealership was.  I read this in the Lockeland Springs newsletter, unless it’s incorrect.
