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.

STOLEN AMBULANCE

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- An Indiana man went for a joy ride in a new set of hot wheels: a stolen ambulance. But his adventure came to an end when police spotted his flashy ride a few miles away from Community East Hospital Tuesday morning after he crashed through a fence onto a golf course.

He was arrested and the ambulance had some front-end damage.

ANIMALS-BLESSING

NEW YORK (AP) -- Bless the father, the son and the pet companions. New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan has blessed three dozen homeless pets and their rescuers. CBS New York says the Tuesday event outside St. Patrick's Cathedral marked the start of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. Volunteers and workers from the Mayor's Alliance for New York City Animals and the Humane Society brought the dogs, cats and a rabbit for prayers.

SPOKANE BUGS

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Some insects are bugging the residents of Spokane, Washington more than usual. Master Gardener horticulture coordinator Tim Kohlauff tells KHQ the gnats swarm this time of year because they're looking to mate. He says they'll land on an ash tree, which he describes as a big singles bar for bugs. Then they'll lay eggs in the bark. But the insects will bug off when it turns cold.

SHOPLIFTING-DRUG CHARGES

DOVER, Del. (AP) -- Police in Dover, Delaware who responded to a shoplifting complaint got a two-for-one deal after arresting two people on drug charges. Police say they saw a woman trying to hide something under the seat of her car when they arrived at a Wawa convenience store Friday evening.
