Former Tennessee Titan Steve McNair was found shot to death in a downtown condo in Nashville, Tennessee yesterday afternoon. The Nashville police have now ruled his death as a homicide. The Titans became my team when the then Houston Oilers moved to Tennessee. They became the Tennessee Oilers and played one year in Memphis before moving to Nashville, and playing one year at Vanderbilt before moving to their stadium home at The Coliseum, and becoming the Tennessee Titans. McNair (our #9) was the heart and soul of the team and played even when he was too injured to practice. Even once he left the Titans, he has always had a presence in Nashville. Only a few weeks ago, he had opened a restaurant over by the TSU campus to help out the community. He hosted football camps every year, would always stop to have his picture taken with a fan, and was seen around the city on a regular basis.
With all the speculation surrounding his death, I hope that everyone remembers all the good he has done on and off the field for so many years.
Goodbye Steve "Air" McNair. You will always be missed!
