Training Camp Travel: Tracking the Tennessee Titans in Nashville
August 5, 2014 at 11:25 AM
Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:
Every team has a chance of winning it all when the season starts up, and that includes the Tennessee Titans. Unfortunately for fans of the team they’re probably a little bit of a long shot, as some odds makers are putting them in at 100:1 when it comes to winning the Super Bowl early next year. Nonetheless the games must be played, and the fans will show up. All the fun begins with training camp that is now underway.
· When's Camp:
Check out quarterback Jake Locker—playing under the final year of his contract—as the team hits the practice field under the direction of new coach Ken Whisenhunt. The team can be found at Thomas Sports Park in Nashville, so no need to head too far out of town to check things out. Several practices are done and finished, but there are still public options available on August 6, 11, and 12—tomorrow’s practice begins at 9:20am and the others take place in the afternoon at 2:50.
· What's it Cost:
Parking and admission are free to one and all at the training facility, so be sure to bring your friends, kids, and anyone else that you think will enjoy a little bit of Titans training camp. Just note that parking might be limited, as we’re sure plenty of fans will show up each and every day. It looks like parking at 445 Great Circle Road within the CVS/Caremark corporate offices is your best bet.
· What Else:
Practices will last for about two hours, and then it’s time to turn things over to the fans. Autographs will be an option each and every day, as it sounds like various players will be open to signing jerseys, footballs, and any other goodies that you might have. Concession stands will be selling food and beverages, and it sounds like they’re even cool with you bringing your own stuff—just leave the booze at home.
