Goodyear Blimp UPDATE

Even though I didn't get to ride in the Goodyear Blimp -- I got a photo beside it. After the game it landed at the Island Home Airport in Knoxville, TN.

Goodyear Blimp

The Goodyear Blimp made it's presence known in Knoxville today. They tried to get me a spot on it for an up in the air adventure, but it was denied. Maybe next year!

2010 Marine Mud Run

I finished my 5th 5K race today. It was the 2010 Marine Mud Run in Knoxville. All the proceeds went for Toys for Tots. This wasn't your basic 5K - they set up obstacles throughout the course. There were a couple of mud pits, two times you had to run in the river, you had to go under ropes and logs, and to tire sprints. I am scared on my knees, elbows, and hands. It was so much fun . . . to make it even better was it rained all morning, so the course was nice and muddy. I didn't get to take many photos, but here is a shot of my shoes oozing with mud. When I got home I had mud in every crevice of my body - including my ears and nostrils.

A sea of ORANGE

If you have never experienced a day in Knoxville on Game Day you are missing out. These people are die hard University of Tennessee fans. I have never lived anywhere where people are so dedicated to their team. At my university we had a hard time filling the seats. I did my story about the economic impact of the game on local businesses. An estimated 100,000 come to these games.
