So, to celebrate the 4th of July, 104.5 The Zone has been re-running some great games in Titans' history.
Today I heard bits and pieces of the playoff game in Baltimore a few years ago, the huge game in New York against the Giants when Steve McNair willed us to win and this year's game against Indy. The day was capped off with a repeat of the greatest moment in Titans' history and one of the top three great moments in sports history....the Music City Miracle.
Interestingly, I got into my car just in time to hear the last ten or so minutes of the game. I've heard the Mike Keith call of the play itself, but hearing the events leading up to it and hearing Pat say we needed a miracle of some kind to win the game seconds before it happened....it was hard not to be a little bit excited. Then, the famous call and then the discussion of it afterward as we waited for the review.
I've said it before and I'll say it again--Mike Keith is the best play by play guy in the NFL. He's a definite homer, but that's exactly what you want in the guy calling the game. He is all for the Titans and to hear his voice go from resignation at the Bills going down and scoring to the sheer delight and euphoria when the Titans pulled off the greatest play in NFL history is a joy to hear.
I have to admit, I still got a little choked up hearing it...a bit misty-eyed at the play.
I can only hope in the years to come that Vince Young and the Titans will give us all some more plays that are just as memorable--not only for my generation of Titans fans but also for the new generations of Titans fans.
And the re-broadcasts of these games did one more thing--made me miss football that much more.
Seriously, can we just skip to late August and get a REAL sport rolling, please?
