Good morning, Nashville. We have to admit we don’t know a whole lot about football (except that we’re supposed to bleed two-tone blue around here) but we hear it’s a big day for the NFL. Free agency is finally here, which means that changes are in store for the Titans beginning with one pretty big one: Albert “Speedy” Haynesworth is now a Redskin. To the tune of $100 million. So sayonara, Albert–as much as we’ve enjoyed your time here, we wish you the best and may you truly enjoy zipping around the streets of DC with your newfound pile of dough. For more free agency updates throughout the day, check out the NFL blog.
- Fun-suckers. We won’t lie… we’ve always felt that one of life’s greatest joys is munching on some peanuts at Logan’s Roadhouse and carelessly tossing the shells all over the floor.
