Time out for a post about the Titans


Cursed? Not sure this is good news,
but Albert Haynesworth is on the
cover of SI this week. (thanks, Sam)

Over the past year or so, I’ve tried to focus posts on RexBlog more on those things related to my work and professional passions: developments at the crossroads of media, marketing and technology that relate to Hammock Inc.’s work with associations and companies in our development of custom-content and social media strategies that help them build stronger relationships with their members and customers.

I’ve tried to shift a lot of my “off-topic” stream-of-conversation observations to my “tumblelog” found at RexHammock.com and on a variety of other places you can see in the right-hand column of this blog or you can view as a “river of rex” on my user profile page at FriendFeed.com/rexhammock.

I mention this because I’ve gotten a few emails from some professional friends who’ve asked me, “How come you’re not blogging about the Titans this year?” (As opposed to people who follow me on Twitter, who ask why I tweet about them so much).

So, this is my mid-season RexBlog post about the Tennessee Titans. If you don’t know, they are 8-0, the only undefeated team in the NFL. They still get no respect. However, that’s a good thing.

I could blog about why the Titans are so good this year, but I’ll just point to this article in today’s Wall Street Journal. In it, Allen Barra will bring you up to speed on the team, and why I am hoping to be live-blogging from the Superbowl in February.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

OK. Back to our regular programming.

Later: My young friend, Sam, commented below that Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth is on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated. (cover link, story link) I’ve blogged here a couple of times about the “SI Curse” including in January, 2002 and on a variation of the SI Curse, the “Madden Curse.
