Well, well, well... in this town of football mania, who wouldn't want to toss the ole pigskin?
The newest football team in Knoxville is the Knoxville Nighthawks. You may recognize some of the payers from UT's past, but these guys are still in football form.
Yikes. Photographer JJ and I got there in time for warm ups, drills, what have you. I swear it is a lot easier to watch plays from the couch or the stands. I know them from a bird's eye view. However, to run them is not really my forte. As you will see when you watch the video. Yikes!
I have to say these guys were great and everyone "tried" to help me.
I literally fell flat on my keister trying to catch a ball. One of the guys said, "Um, next time stop before you try and catch it." Whoopsie daisy.
The team is getting ready for a big game next Friday. It's their first in-season game. I think I've been cut from the team, but hey they may need a mascot or two for some games.
