I remember last year when the Preds were in the thick of the playoff hunt, and the Titans signed David Givens, that made the front page of the Tennessean and was the headline on 104.5, when I called to ask why they dont spend more time talking about a playoff team, they said "Well you know this is football country" ... Just wants to make you shake your head in disgust.
actually, the 66 percent is, as mentioned by the Tennessean, about the norm for this time of year. If you still lived in Nashville, you'd see that this has, if anything, woken people up. Now, it might just be because people feel like their backs are against the wall and they don't like it...and maybe the enthusiasm won't last, even if we are successful...but you can't be discouraged by what you're seeing around town, right now.
