For me, the Steve McNair's murder is one of those events where I will always remember where I was when I got the news. I was out on the lake with some people, and when I got back in the boat and picked up my phone I had missed calls from August, Gramsey and my dad. I knew that meant something had happened with the Titans, but had no idea what. The next few hours were filled with confusion and sadness as I learned about the events that had transpired.
Obviously the circumstances surrounding his death were disappointing, but that does not take away from all of the good he did while he was playing in the NFL. He dedicated a lot of his time and money to help kids who were less fortunate, and he filled a tractor trailer full of supplies to help the victims of Katrina. That is what I choose to remember about him....oh and that he gave his all on the field every single week for the Titans.
So today as you are having time with family and friends, take a moment to think about Mechelle McNair and Steve's kids. This has to be a tough day for them.
