Bernard's bravado - 06/03/14

From the moment Bernard Pollard arrived in Nashville, the Tennessee Titans became a tougher team.  When I was editing the file video that night for the story on his signing, I came across his well-known collision with New England's Stevan Ridley.  Poor Stevan.  Knocked out!

Pollard, who came to Tennessee from Baltimore, has also been a big "hit" in the locker room.  Reporters looking for a good quote, head directly to #31's locker.  Bernard never disappoints.

Yesterday he compared the Titans defenders to a pack of dogs.  I asked him what kind of "dogs" the Titans were during the 2013 season compared to now.  He said, "Last year, we were young german shepherds.  Now we're more like pitbulls."  Did I mention he never disappoints?

Today at Jake Locker's charity go-karting event at the Fairgrounds Speedway, Bernard's bravado was on display once again.  I snapped the picture to the right BEFORE the racing started.  Clearly the Titans safety was confident he would be the champ!

I like that high-level of confidence.  It's beneficial on the track...and the football field where Bernard Pollard hopes to lift another trophy at the end of the 2014 season - the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION-POLL

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new poll indicates that lots of folks in Washington, D.C. want their city to be the District of Cannabis. The Washington Post survey finds District of Columbia residents favor legalizing pot by a nearly 2-to-1 margin. The ballot issue is being put to voters in the November election. But even if it passes, Congress could block the pot initiative from taking effect.

CLEMSON-SEX SURVEY

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- None of your business. That's what many Clemson students are telling the administration. Students at the South Carolina university had been required to fill out a sex survey that asked some pretty detailed questions. University officials said the questionnaire was part of an effort to combat sexual discrimination and abuse. The school says the program is being suspended until officials review the content. Students took the sex survey online and had to log in using their Clemson ID and password.

WHEEL OF FORTUNE WIN

SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) -- A Maryland math teacher now counts to more than a million. Sarah Manchester wins a million bucks plus on "Wheel of Fortune." The episode aired earlier this week. She's just the third person to win more than a mil on the long-running game show. Manchester says she's "soaking in every minute" of the big win. She teaches math and is the math team coach at Takoma Park Middle School. She was a student there herself. Manchester tells WJLA-TV she'll use her new fortune for her two children's education and for family travel.

VIDEO GAME MUSEUM

FRISCO, Texas (AP) -- Picasso, no. But Pac-Man, yes -- for a new Texas museum. A community development board in a fast-growing Dallas suburb has approved a $1 million plan to back the nation's first video game museum. The Dallas Morning News reports the Frisco Community Development board voted unanimously last night to approve the deal. The Videogame History Museum would be housed in a renovated local museum. It would be the testing ground for a larger and more permanent home planned in Frisco. The collection includes games, consoles and memorabilia, everything from Pac-Man to a working prototype of Pong.
