But we are Nashville, we never really gave a damn about expectations anyway.
When flooded, the world expected Nashville to drown and thrash and loot and scream and whine for help, but it swam. helped it's neighbors, respected each other and pulled itself from the tidal waters. Sherman, Grant, and the Union Army couldn't kill you. Tornados have swirled down your avenues and The rising Cumberland couldn't kill you. How the hell could a bunch of ignorant haters kill you?
Many have tried, and many have failed. You can't kill Nashville.
That's true though. There will now be a whole new generation of kids with a true local, hometown hero to look up to and follow. It all starts with one. Even if Blake only plays a few games with Nashville, the next Nashville kid could be coming along watching and cheering for Blake right now (or whenever he gets to Nashville).
