[quote:Anonymous Coward 706745:MV84MzE0NTNfMTI4NzY2NTBfQTNCRTkxODY=] Good Guy: McNair Key in Hurricane Katrina Aid Saturday, Jul. 4, 2009 - 8:38 p.m. ET Steve McNair's desire to help his community was enormous, and nothing showed that more than his assistance to Hurricane Katrina victims. As part of package saluting the Good Guys in sports, Paul Attner offered the following in June 2006: It started with a conversation with Brett Favre. Steve McNair, then still with the Titans, and Favre are Mississippi natives, and their teams were scheduled to play a preseason game in Nashville three days after Hurricane Katrina. Favre told McNair he was packing the Packers' plane with relief supplies for his state. That led McNair to ask his foundation director, Mike Mu, to arrange a relief drive in Nashville. By the end of McNair's effort, 20 tractor-trailers had been filled with supplies. More than 800 volunteers helped out, and children brought their piggy banks. Fundraising efforts brought in more than $300,000. A couple of weeks after the hurricane, the first trucks rolled into Mississippi and serviced areas that the Red Cross and the Federal Emergency Management Agency were not reaching. One of the trucks went to McNair's ranch, where his mom supervised the unloading process. Mu and McNair realized they needed a distribution point, so they began the Steve McNair Distribution Center in Gulfport. That led to weekly deliveries to the center of goods purchased by McNair's foundation. Later, Favre and McNair contributed to a $150,000 donation to the state's high school and youth football programs. http://www.sportingnews.com/nfl/article/2009-07-04/good-guy-mcnair-key-hurricane-katrina-aid [/quote]
RIP Air McNair
Nashville police are confirming reports that former Titans and Ravens QB Steve McNair has been killed.
McNair, 36, and a female were found shot to death, spokesman Don Aaron told reporters this afternoon.
No one is yet in custody and Aaron said he could not give details on what time the victims died.
Titans owner Bud Adams released the following statement:
"We are saddened and shocked to hear the news of Steve McNair’s passing today. He was one of the finest players to play for our organization and one of the most beloved players by our fans. He played with unquestioned heart and leadership and led us to places that we had never reached, including our only Super Bowl. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family as they deal with his untimely passing."
