Bryan Pride to be featured on Countdown
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Remember Bryan Pride, the inspirational but exceptionally quiet, lowest-ranking and roundest member of the Titans offensive line?
(If you don't, here's the Dec. 4 the blog entry.)
He's up to 179 pounds, which, incidentally, is about what those silly charts in doctors' offices say I should weigh. Aren't those things due for an update?
Anyway, to my point: Pride visited with ESPN's Greg Garber a while back, and the network so loved his story it held onto it for the playoff.
Inside sources tell me you can expect the Pride story at around 11:28 a.m. ET (that's 10:28 a.m. in Titansland) on Saturday morning's edition of "NFL Countdown." (That's subject to change at the whim of a number of very important people, so just watch the whole show to be safe.)
It will probably be wise to have the tissue box in the same room as the TV -- I'm expecting a real tear-jerker.
