Good morning, Nashville. Though the Titans practically gutted the Jaguars last night 30-3, the game wasn’t without a casualty: Vince Young left in the first quarter after we all watched his knee do something that knees shouldn’t do. Kerry Collins took over for the rest of the game and despite VY’s sprained knee and ankle, Coach Fisher said he could’ve returned. So apparently it wasn’t as bad as it looked. Oh, and while we’re discussing the Titans, Albert Haynesworth probably ain’t coming back.
- Early voting turnout. According to election officials, more than 150,000 Tennesseans have shown up to the polls during the first four days of early voting. The early voting period continues through October 28th, so find out where you can vote and go there.
- Happy endings. Remember a few months ago when a contractor accidentally deleted hundreds of dashboard cam recordings that Metro actually needed for evidence in DUI cases and such? A recent audit found that a “technology upgrade” was to blame and that most of them can be recovered.
- Bits & pieces. More roads are shutting down for Music City Center construction … Once upon a time, a Bellevue family had their flood-damaged home gutted without anyone telling them about it … No, the Tampa Bay Devil Rays are not coming to Nashville … Pekka could be back on the ice today … Our inner six-year olds are jumping for joy that MASTODON BONES were probably uncovered in Franklin.
