Titans to hold McNair tribute at LP Field

By Jim Wyatt • THE TENNESSEAN • July 7, 2009 The Titans will open LP Field on Wednesday and Thursday to give fans an opportunity to pay their respects to quarterback Steve McNair at the place where he made such an impression. A large photo mural of McNair has put up outside Gate One at LP Field, and a floral display is also up honoring McNair, who was shot four times and killed over the weekend. From 9 a.m.-7 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, fans will be able to watch a rolling video of McNair highlights on the video boards at the stadium. Fans will be able to sign a book that will eventually be presented to the McNair family, and also make a donation to the Steve McNair Foundation at the ticket office. Titans owner Bud Adams thought a tribute would be a nice way to honor McNair, who played from 1995-2005 with the Titans. “It is going to be a great way for fans to honor a great player who had so many fond memories in that venue,’’ sad Don MacLachlan, EVP of Administration and Facilities. “Fans can rehash memories of Steve. It’s something Mr. Adams wanted to do to give back after all his great memories of Steve.’’ Admission and parking will be free. Fans can park in Lot C at LP Field.
