Spotting #82

Whoever invented pause for live TV was a freakin' genius! We've used it several times tonight watching the preseason NFL game featuring the Tennessee Titans against the Seattle Seahawks. Each time the camera scans the Titans' sideline, we are looking for #82. We've spotted him a couple of times and I'm not ashamed to admit that I squealed with delight. This is Tennessee's first appearance on national TV since Chase Deadder joined the team. (Chase graduated from Central Catholic with Sierra in 2007.) He's a dear family friend. Our hearts are full of pride tonight as we anxiously await his appearance on the field for his first NFL game. There are only 2 minutes left in this game so I don't know if it will be tonight, but I'm confident it will happen. And we'll be watching and cheering him on like we have for the last 8 years.

UPDATE!

He's In! He's IN! As soon as I submitted this post, Chase took the field as a wide-receiver!

Oh my... that was exciting! I can't wait for the rest of the season!
