MORE WITH THIS TODAY AND THEN I BELIEVE SHE WILL BE FOLLOWED BY- REPRESENTATIVES FROM MLS. THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME AGAIN LAURA WOMACK DIRECTOR THE FAIRGROUNDS NASHVILLE. REALLY EXCITED TO SHOW YOU SOME PICTURES TODAY WE HAVE BEEN FULL STEAM AHEAD ON CONSTRUCTION OF OUR NEW EXPOSITION FACILITIES WHICH INCLUDE A HUNDRED AND THIRTY ONE THOUSAND SQUARE FEET. OF INDOOR CONDITION SPACE NEW OUTDOOR COVERED SPACE WHICH IS SHEDS A NEW SHOW ARENA AND WHAT WE ARE CALLING OUR FRONT PORCH OR CANOPY — ON THE EXPO BUILDINGS NEEDLESS TO SAY WE ARE PUSHING VERY HARD- TO GET DONE SO THAT WE CAN TRANSITION THE PROPERTY OVER AND RELOCATE OUR EVENTS TO OUR NEW FACILITIES TO TO MAKE WAY FOR THE STADIUM. AND MIXED USE CONSTRUCTION UP ON THE HILL — I WILL SAY THAT THE THE WEATHER HAS BEEN SOMEWHAT OF A CHALLENG- HAVING ONE OF THE WETTEST FEBRUARY’S ON RECORD HAS NOT HELPED WITH — SOME OF OUR EARTH WORK THAT WE’RE DOING BUT AGAIN THE TEAM – CONSTRUCTION TEAM IS VERY COMMITTED. TO THE TIME FRAME THAT’S BEEN ESTABLISHED — WANTED TO GO OVER A LITTLE BIT ON THE SLIDES WE CAN ADVANCE JUST TO TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE COMPONENTS BECAUSE NEEDLESS TO SAY OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL YEARS THERE’S A LOT HAPPENING. SO JUST TO KIND OF IDENTIFY — FAIRGROUNDS CONSTRUCTION PUZZLE. IS AREA ONE ON THE SLIDE IN FRONT OF YOU IS OUR FAIR PARK SO WE ARE ONSTRUCTING. A FORTY SIX ACRES OF COMMUNITY RECREATION SPACE THAT DOUBLES AS FAIRGROUNDS EVENT AND HARDWORKING. YEAH BACK [inaudible] ONE HEY GO. SO AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SLIDE YOU’LL SEE. THE FIRST PART OF THAT FAIR PARK PROJECT IS WE’VE RECEIVED ARE TEMPORARY USE AN OCCUPANCY PERMIT WE OPENED IT LAST WEEK AND IF YOU. HAVE A DOG I WOULD RECOMMEND YOU BRINGING YOUR FUR BABY THERE BECAUSE IT IS PACKED ANY TIME OF DAY YOU GO MONDAY THROUGH. SUNDAY IT IS IT’S BEEN PACKED S. FOUR THIRTY THAT WAS FULL VERY GOOD VERY GOOD SO IT — WE’VE GOT THE FAIR PARK OPEN DOG PARK IS VERY ACTIVE — WE’RE STILL LEADING THE GRASS IN THE MULTI BUT WE DO PLAN ON USING THAT AREA FOR PARKING IN APRIL — AS WELL AS SEVERAL EVENTS THAT WE’VE GOT PLANNED OUT THERE AND AGAIN THAT IS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH METRO PARKS — WHILE WE RETAIN OWNERSHIP OF THE PROPERTY THEY WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MANAGING IN PROGRAMMING. THE PARK AND GETTING — HOPEFULLY SOME. SOCCER AND LACROSSE AND FOOTBALL AND ALL SORTS OF PROGRAMMING OUT THERE ON THIS FALL LORD SO YOU REFER TO IT AS A AS A ONE IN THE DIAGRAM BUT IT THERE’S A ONE A AND ONE B. WHAT’S — ONE B. IS WHERE THE CURRENT ELECTION COMMISSIONS STORAGE WAREHOUSES LOCATED THAT IS A PIECE OF FAIR PARK THAT IS JUST A TRACKING A LITTLE BIT BEHIND WE I NEED TO RE LOCATE THOSE — ELECTION MEN ARE VOTING MACHINES PRIOR TO THAT BUILDING BEING DEMOLISHED WHICH IS PART OF THE FAIR PARK PROJECT. SO THERE IT THERE’S GOING TO BE RELOCATING THOSE — SOMETIME EARLY THIS FALL — AND ONCE THAT HAPPENS WE WILL TRANSITION THAT TRIANGLE — TO GRASS. NUMBER TWO ON YOUR DIAGRAM HERE IS JUST A CONTINUATION OF FAIR PARK THAT IS SOMETHING THAT IS – WE’VE PUT A REQUEST FOR FUNDING TO CONTINUE THE GREEN WAY PROJECT — NEEDLESS TO SAY BROWNS CEEK IS A VERY SENSITIVE WATER WAY. IT’S A NO CONTACT CREEK AND SO DOING IN FAIR PARK IS PART OF THE FAIRGROUNDS — REVITALIZATION IS TO REALLY MANAGE STORM WATER RUNOFF AND TO HELP MITIGATE SOME OF THE CHALLENGES WE HAVE WITH BROWNS CREEK WHEN WE HAVE. A VERY LARGE RAIN EVENTS SO WE HOPE TO CONTINUE THAT PROJECT — OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL YEARS TO GET THAT — GREEN WAY OPEN ALL THE WAY TO NOLAN’S FILM THAT WILL ALSO CONNECT INTO A GREEN WAY EXTENSION ON THE OTHER SIDE — TO HELP COMPLETE THE GREEN WAY OF PROJECT FOR METROPARKS. NUMBER THREE IS OF COURSE ARE SPEEDWAY WE HAVE DONE SOME. IMPROVEMENTS TO THE CONCOURSE IN GRANDSTAND HELP SUPPORT THE SPEEDWAY WE’VE IMPROVED RESTROOMS — DONE SOME LIGHTING AND SOME PAINTING WE’VE GOT SOME PROJECTS THAT ARE STILL OUTSTANDING WE’RE GONNA BE DOING SOME LIGHTING WORK — PRIOR TO THE RACING SEASON WHICH KICKS OFF APRIL THIRTEENTH WITHOUT ARM ALL AMERICAN FOUR HUNDRED WHICH WAS HAD TO BE RESCHEDULED FROM LAST NOVEMBER DUE TO RAIN. SO WE’RE GOING TO KICK OFF THE RACING SEASON ON APRIL THIRTEENTH. NUMBER FOUR IS OUR EXPO FACILITY SITE SO AS I MENTIONED WE’VE GT BOTH INDOOR CONDITIONED SPACE AND OUTDOOR COVERED SPACE. A NEW HARD SCAPES RB SPOT SIX AFTER THAT ARE GOING IN AND I’VE GOT SOME PICTURES TO SHOW YOU — AS THAT WORK CONTINUES. FIVE IS ESSENTIALLY THE DEMOLITION OF OUR EXISTING BUILDINGS UP ON THE HILL AND WHAT THAT WILL DO IS MAKE ROOM AND MAKE IT READY FOR THE STADIUM AND MIXED USE CONSTRUCTION THAT WILL. COME IN RIGHT AFTER THAT. SIX IS A PART OF OUR INFRASTRUCTURE WE’VE GOT SEVERAL ROADWAYS THAT ARE ADJACENT TO THE PROPERTY AND RUN THROUGH THE PROPERTY. THAT NEED TO BE IMPROVED EXTENDED AND UPDATED AS WELL AS UTILITIES SO ONE OF THE PROJECTS THAT IS GOING TO BE VERY HELPFUL FOR ALL OF THE USES AT THE FAIRGROUNDS IS TO CONTINUE WEDGEWOOD. AS IT ENTERS THE PROPERTY INSTEAD OF HAVING IT EXIT ON NOLAN’S PHIL PLAN ON TAKING THAT ALL THE WAY THROUGH TO CRACK HEAD. WHAT THAT ENTAILS IS BUILDING UP A BRIDGE OVER BROWNS CREEK AND THAT INCLUDES? CERTAINLY INVOLVES MUCH MORE THAN JUST MATCH OF COURSE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT INVOLVEMENT IN BUILDING CREEK OVER WATER WA. SO THAT PERMITTING TIME TAKES A LITTLE BIT OF A LITTLE BIT MORE TIME AND WON’T BE EXACTLY OPEN WHEN WE FINISH THE EXPO CONSTRUCTION. WE’LL ALSO BE IMPROVING BENTON AVENUE WHICH IS WHERE YOU’RE SIX A TO THE LEFT OF YOUR SCREEN. THAT SERVICE — I’D REALLY NICE SEGUE FROM THE HILL DOWN TO THE EXPO FACILITY WE’VE GOT A LOT OF GRADE. CHALLENGES ON THE SITE — CURRENTLY THAT ARE NOT ACCESSIBLE. SO RE GREETING BENTON WILL PROVIDE A EDA ACCESSIBLE. IN THE WALKWAY AND DRIVE UP FROM THE HILL TO THE BOTTOM OF THE PROPERTY. ADDITIONALLY WE’RE GOING TO HAVE THE SERVICE ROADS THAT NEED TO BE DEVELOPED AND PARKING LOTS AND SERVICE ROADS THAT HELP SUPPORT THE STADIUM MIXED USE AND THE FAIR GROUNDS YOU SAYS. SEVEN OF COURSE IS THE STADIUM CONSTRUCTION. AND EIGHT A B. AND C. ARE THE THREE MIXED USE BOX THAT WERE APPROVED AS PART OF THE PROJECT SO THAT KIND OF GIVES YOU AN IDEA OF ALL THE DIFFERENT COMPONENTS THAT — DIRECTOR FALCONS IN AND AND OF COURSE THE MLS TEAM IN MIXED USE HAVE BEEN WORKING REALLY HARD ON IT OVER THE LAST — YOU KNOW YEAR TO TO COORDINATE SO GIVE A KUDOS TO THE WHOLE TEAM. FOR I HAVE A QUETION SURE I SAW — THAT NEWS REPORT THE OTHER DAY THAT THE STATE FAIR COMMISSIONERS CONSIDERING MOVING COULD YOU JUST ADDRESS THAT WITH OUR CHURCH ABSOLUTELY — THE STATE COMMISSION IS A STATE APPOINTED BODY TAT ESSENTIALLY OWNS THE RIGHTS OR DO THEY HAVE JURISDICTION OVER AND BE. UP PRODUCTION OF OF THIS TENNESSEE STATE FAIR NOW THEY CONTRACT WITH THE TENNESSEE STATE FAIR ASSOCIATION A NONPROFIT THAT PRODUCES THE FAIR AND HAVE — FOR ON OUR SITE. SPUR ABOUT THE LAST EIGHT YEARS OR SO — THE STATE FAIRS BEEN ON THE FAIRGROUNDS PROPERTY — FOR SINCE. NINETEEN OH SIX VERY LONG TIME – THEY’VE EXPRESSED INTEREST IN LOOKING AT ALTERNATIVE SITES. AFTER THIS YEAR’S FAIR. AND THEN WRITING A LETTER TO THE LEGISLATION LEGISLATURE AND THE GOVERNOR’S OFFICE IN SUPPORT OF THAT SEARCH. IN THE MEANTIME WE CERTAINLY WELCOME THE STATE FAIR WE’VE BEEN WORKING WITH THEM VERY DILIGENTLY TO WORK OUT LOGISTICS IN THE TRANSITION FROM THE OLD BUILDINGS TO THE NEW BUILDINGS FOR THIS YEAR STATE FAIR WE’RE VERY CONFIDENT THAT WE CAN SUPPORT THEM THIS YEAR — TO HOST A VERY GOOD TENNESSEE STATE FAIR AND SO THAT IS WHAT WE’RE PROCEEDING WITH [inaudible] THANK YOU. THE NEXT PICTURE ON YOUR SIDE I- IF YOU WANT TO ADVANCE THAT IS AN AERIAL OF FAIR PARK CAN GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF AN IDEA OF WHAT THOSE MULTI PURPOSE FIELDS THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY NOT STRIPED AT THIS TIME. BUT WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR AGAIN PARKING FOR FAIRGROUNDS EVENTS WHETHER IT BE THE FLEA MARKET OR THE FAIR — ALSO YOU KNOW PRACTICE OF ANY KIND — THAT WILL ALL BE PROGRAM THROUGH METROPARKS IT IS A BERMUDA GRASS IT IS ALSO REINFORCED HER SO THAT HELPS U AS WE PROGRAM IT USE IT HOPEFULLY IT. HELPS WITH ITS RESILIENCE AND BOUNCING BACK FROM FROM ALL THE USE IT WILL GET WE’VE GOTTEN A LOT OF INTEREST WE GOT MORE PHONE CALLS RECENTLY — OF INTEREST AND HOLDING EVENTS ON THAT SITE SO WE’RE TRYING TO JUST BE THOUGHTFUL. ABOUT — USE VERSES OVER USE — SO WE CONTINUE TO WORK WITH PARKS ON THAT. THE NEXT SEVERAL SLIDES TO SHOW YOU SOME OF THE CONSTRUCTION THE IT’S AMAZING THE AMOUNT OF WORK. THE TEAM HAS DONE OVER THE PROBABLY THE LAST MONTH. IN CONSTRUCTION WHAT THIS PICTURE IS IS THE ROOF THAT IS GOING UP ON EXPOSITION CENTER — THREE THAT IS OUR MEDIUM SIZED BUILDING. AND YOU KNOW IT’S IT’S A LITTLE BIT BASIC IN DESIGN BUT BY DESIGN — WE HAVE TO HAVE A VERY FLEXIBLE BUILDING SOMETHING THAT WILL TRANSITION WELL FROM ROLLER DERBY TO FLEA MARKET TO A GLASS SHOW TO A BANQUET — HOUSING GOATS AND SHEEP SO WHAT YOU’LL SEE WHEN YOU VISIT AND I HOPE YOU ALL COME OUT AND VISIT. IS A VERY FLEXIBLE VERY OPEN AND INVITING SPACE — THAT SERVES A LOT OF DIFFERENT ACTIVITIES. THE NEXT SLIDE GIVES YOU A LITTLE BIT OF PERSPECTIVE ON OUR WHAT WE’RE CALLING AGAIN OUR FRONT PORCH IT’S THE CANOPY THAT SURROUNDS — THE MAJORITY ALL BUT ALL THREE SIDES OF THE BUILDING — MOST OF THE CANOPIES ARE THIRTY WHICH THIS SHOWS — EXCEPT ALONG WEDGEWOOD IT’S A TWENTY FOOT WIDE PORCH THIS WILL HELP SERVE OUR FLEA MARKET FOR YOU TO PROVIDE COVERED SPACE FOR OUR VENDORS — WHO GENERALLY HAVE OUTDOOR BLUE SPACE? AND TE NEXT SLIDE IS.

IN AIR TO JOIN US THANK YOU FOR FIRST TIME FOR A BOARD AND WE LOOK FOR TO PARTNER WITH. THANK YOU AND THANKS FOR HAVE MADE TODAY — SO WE FIND OURSELVES TODAY ALMOST WITHIN A WEEK OR SO OF BEING EXACTLY ONE MEDIA FROM STYLES IN MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER FOR THE TWENTY TWENTY SEASON AND I THOUGHT WOULD BE GOOD TO GIVE YOU AN UPDATE OF OF THINGS GENERALLY OVERALL SO — FROM A JOB INTERVIEW — IN REALLY. TECHNICAL TEAM WE NOW HAVE A SENIOR POSITIONS IN THE TECHNICAL AREA SO. ALL COACHES BEEN ANNOUNCED ALL GENERAL MANAGER ASSISTANT. CHIEF SCOUT — ALL IN PLACE WHICH ONE YEAR OUT. A STRONG IN A POSITIVE COMMENT FROM MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER THAT WERE PROPOSED SO WELL IN ADVANCE AND THAT ALLOWS US. TO STALL THE IMPORTANT WORK TO TO FILL A ROSTER — UP FRONT OFFICE MANAGEMENT TEAM SENIOR MANAGEMENT TEAM. ALL IN PLACE EXCEPT FOR ONE POSITION SO AGAIN — IN REALLY GOOD SHAPE THE AND THEN. FOR THOSE YOU WERE ABLE TO ATTEND WE HAD ALL BRAND IDENTITY AND LAUNCH OF ALL TEAM COLORS JUST A FEW WEEKS BACK AT MARTHA MUSIC WORKS AND I THINK — A GREAT EXAMPLE. A GREAT FRIENDS LOVE EXCITEMENTS AND I THINK A A GOOD STATE OF THE TYPE OF ENERGY WE WANT TO BRING TO SOCCER IN NASHVILLE — WITH — WE’VE ACQUIRED A NEW ALL FOUND A POSITION FOR A NEW TEAM OFFICES- WILL MOVE THAT IN APRIL AND THEY’LL BE JUST ADJACENT TO THE FIVE GRAM SIDE SO. JUST OVER NOLAN’S PHIL PIKE WITH A VIEW ACROSS TO THE SIDE SO — ALMOST WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF THE FACILITY — WE REACHED AGREEMENT IN PRINCIPLE WITH THE TITANS TO PLAY HERE — UNTIL ALL STADIUM IS READY — I’M VERY APPRECIATIVE OF THE SUPPORT AND AND EVERYBODY CONTINUES TO BE VERY SUPPORTIVE OF US IN THE AREA — WE ALSO CONTINUE TO SEARCH FOR THE RIGHT LOCATION FOR ALL — PRACTICE FACILITY –pTHROUGHOUTO FOR YES THE THIS IS THE THING THE THIRD VENUE I’VE BEEN INVOLVED IN PERSONALLY FOR SPORTS AND YOU KNOW WHAT’S IMPORTANT IN THE IS THAT WE GET. THE RIGHT LEVEL OF FUNCTIONALITY IN THIS BUILDING I THINK IT’S IT’S RELATIVELY EASY TO BUILD A ABIG FACILITY BUT IMPORTANT TO MAKE THAT. THE RIGHT FACILITY WITH THE RIGHT HOME SHOULD I LET’S SEE — WE’VE BEEN WORKINGSINCE — SINCE I ARRIVE WITH THE ARCHITECT IN WITH — THE CONSTRUCTION PROMISE OF TAKING THE ORIGINAL CONCEPTS AND AND ESTIMATES AND I’M BUILDING A HOUSE OF TO PROVIDE THEM BUILD A REALLY FUNCTIONAL SOLUTION THAT NATIONAL CAN BE PROUD OF I’M GONNA SHOW SOME RENDERINGS [inaudible] SO THIS SHE SOME SENSE OF THE THE FACADE OF THE BUILDING — THIS WOULD BE THE NORTHEASTERN MENTIONS OF THE FACILITY AT THE TOP END OF THE SITES AND FOR THOSE WHO KNOW THE SIDE THE SIDE GRADES KIND OF DOWN HILL — THIS WOULD BE AT THE TOP AND THEN AND THE REAR AND IN THE SOUTH WOULD BE. JUST THE HEAD OF WELL OR WAS TALKING ABOUT THAT MIXED USE — THE SOCCER FIELDS AND OTHERS — INTERNALLY — I THINK YOU KNOW QUITE SPECTACULAR — SOMETIMES A FACILITY — IT’S INTERESTING AND IMPORTANT TO SAY THAT WHAT WE’RE TRYING TO DO HERE IS MAKE SURE THAT WE WE DELIVER SOMETHING REALLY SPECIA- THIS WILL ACTUALLY BE — AND I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE — I’M NOT AWARE OF THIS BUT THIS WILL ACTUALLY BE THE LARGEST STOCK A SPECIFIC FACILITY IN THE UNITED STATES. SO THIRTY THOUSAND SEATS WILL BE THE BIGGEST SOCCER STADIUM IN THE U. S. SO IMPORTANT TO GET THAT RIGHT. AT THE SOUTH OF THE NORTH AND THEN AS YOU LOOK LOGO FLAG IS WILL BE THE SUPPORTERS AND SO — BEEN REALLY IMPORTANCE IN IN DIALOGUE WITH OUR SUPPORTERS TO MAKE THAT. A STANDING AREA WHERE THEY CAN REALLY CRAZY THE NOISE AND I ALMOST FEEL THAT DRIVES THE REST THE REST OF THE FACILITY — WE ALSO HAVE AS YOU AS YOU LOOK AT THIS THIS RENDERING — TEEL LEFT — THE THE EAST AND STAND — IS IS LARGELY DESIGNED FOR PREMIUM SPACE SO WE’LL HAVE A MIX IN THAT — OF PREMIUM LOUNGES PREMIUM SUITES AND ALL THE FACILITIES LOGE BOXES SO. TRYING TO CREAT SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE THREE SIDES DEALING WITH THE GENERAL ADMISSION SOLUTION OF VARIOUS TYPES. AND THEN A DEDICATED PREMIUM AREA ON A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT PRODUCTS WITHIN THE OUTSIDE — WILL CREATE SOME SOME FUN EXPERIENCE — OWNS — AND THEN IN ADDITION YOU KNOW AND AS I DID TO SOME OF THE TIME IT’S BEEN ABOUT ENSURING THAT THE LEVEL OF COME FIRST. THE ABILITY TO GET IN AND OUT OF THE FACILITY WITH THE LEAST DISRUPTION IS IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO THE FLOW AND ON THE EXPERIENCE OVERALL AND I AND AGAIN. I THINK FROM MY OWN EXPERIENCE IF YOU GET THOSE THINGS RIGHT IT MAKES THE THING PEOPLE WANNA KAMAL PEOPLE WANT TO ENJOY IT IS OFTEN WORSE THAN. NO ANGEL IN THE SPACE OF NOT THAT’S ALL COMES DOWN TO THE RIGHT DESIGN — THE CHANGES IN THE ON THE THE HARD WORK THAT’S GONE INTO TO CREATING THIS DESIGN OF ACTUALLY POST ALL THE SCHEDULE SO — IT’S EXTENDED THE DESIGN PHASE AS WE LOOK AT THE VERY SOLUTIONS AND IT’S AND IT’S BEEN IMPORTANT TO DO THE AND AND AND IN ORDER TO COME OUT WITH THE YOU KNOW ALSO ONLY THE RIGHT SOLUTION FOR THE FOR THE CLUB I’M FOR THE CITY — IT’S A COMPLEX AND CHALLENGING SIZE I TOLD ABOUT THE GRADE — WE’VE GOT TO FIND THE RIGHT SOLUTION AROUND THAT. AND I THINK HONESTLY THE ORIGINAL SCHEDULE WAS PROBABLY A LITTLE AMBITIOUS THE SOCIALITE STADIUM IN SOCCER — THE NEW TIME LINE DRIVES THE MORE REAL REALISTIC OPENING DATE AND ALL OPINION OF TWENTY TWENTY TWO SEASON. A MISERABLE COUPLE REASONS WHY I’M NOT THE THE THE CONSTRUCTION PROGRESS OF ALL SHOULD JEWEL. WAS MOVING INTO THE TWENTY ONE SEASON. AND ON WALLS WE HAVEN’T YET REACHED TECHNICAL TEAM SALAH COACH TO ALSO FOR PEOPLE. IT STARTED TO LOOK AND STARTS TO LOOK LIKE WE WOULD BE MOVING. ALL TEAM MIDWAY THROUGH THE SEASON WHICH FROM A SOCCER PERSPECTIVE WOULD BE YOU KNOW — SIGNIFICANT DOWNTURN FOR THE TEAM TO MOVILLE HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE MID SEASON. THING WOULDN’T SERVE ANYONE VERY WELL AND THEN EQUALLY FOR ALL SUPPORTERS IN AUGUST. YOU KNOW TO TO SELL ONE PRODUCTS IN THIS FACILITY AND THEN MOVED TO AND ALL THAT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SEASON I HUSBAND DYLAN. INSULTED HAS TO SAY BUT IN TALKING TO ALL THE TEAMS HAVE GONE THROUGH THE EXPERIENCE IT WASN’T A GOOD ONE I THINK. THE FINAL THING I WOULD SAY IS THAT MAKING IT THE TWENTY TWENTY SIX SEASON STILL LIVES IS THE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE BIG ANNOUNCE WHEN THE BIG LAUNCH. THE BIG DAY RIGHTS AT THE START OF THE MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER SEASON — THE OUTCOME ALSO — IS IS IN THE CASE IN THE LIGHTS WOULD DRIVE A DIFFERENT PRICE — WOULD NOT FINISHED ON THE PHONE COMPLETELY ON DESIGN SO SO DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT NUMBER. COMPLETELY LOOKS LIKE AT THIS STAGE BUT IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT WOULD PUT TRYING TO DEVELOP SOMETHING THAT AS I SAID. REALLY DELIVERS THE ULTIMATE SOLUTION THAT WE CON HOW FULL NASHVILLE AND THAT NATIONAL CAN BE PROUD OF WITH VERY CLEA AS THE TWO CHANNEL — PRICE WAS IT IS FOR THE TEAM TO DEAL WITH — WITH EXCEPT A FULLY AND YOU KNOW OF METRO’S FINANCIAL OBLIGATION OBVIOUSLY DOES NOT CHANGE — SO THAT’S MY UPDATE FOR NOW ANY QUESTIONS. SO YOU CAN START YOUR PARTY WITH TWENTY TWENTY TWO SEASON FOR COMPLETION OF THE STATEMENT FIRST SEASON AT STARTING. THAT’S GREAT WE THE COMPLETION WOULD BE IN — TWENTY ONE ABOUT THE PROBABLY AT THE TAIL END AND AND I THINK THAT. BODES WELL FOR THOSE IN THE SENSE THAT IT GIVES A REAL OPPORTUNITY TO COMPLETE CONSTRUCTION GO THROUGH. COMMISSIONING THE INTRODUCTION TEST OF ENDS — BUT THE BUT THE EXPECTATION WOULD BE STOPPED ALL SEASON. AND MARCH TWENTY TWENTY TWO AND REFINED NISSAN IN TWO OF THEM YES AND WHAT WHAT IS THE WE CAN TURN YOUR SEASON SPAN — LINE SO LAST SEASON RUNS — MARCH THROUGH TO OCTOBER FOR THE REGULAR SEASON AND THEN INTO NOVEMBER FOR PLAYOFFS. WHAT DO YOU DO ABOUT THE OVERLAP HONEY ON TO SPEAK ABOUT SOME SOME WE’VE WE’VE BEEN WORKING WITH STEVE STEEN TO UNDERSTAND THAT ON THE STUMP PROGRAM AND AND IN A WAY NOT UNIQUE IN THAT SENSE THERE A? THERE ARE MANY TEAMS FROM ALLIANCE UNITED TO SHOW WITH FALCONS AND YOU KNOW THE IT WAS LOTS OF EXTRA SO AND SO IT’S ABOUT BEING. COGNIZANT THE TWO DIFFERENT TEAMS AND I WOULD SAY AGAIN THA. STEPHEN IS TEAM OF AND HUGELY SUPPORTIVE IN WAS VERY GRATEFUL FOR THAT. TIME THAT THE OLDEST PROFESSIONAL SPORTS TEAMS IN NATIONAL SUPPORT EACH OTHER ABSOLUTELY.

AND EVERYBODY IN OUR SHOP PRETTY MUCH — POOH POOHED THE NOTION THAT WE HAD ANY CHANCE TO GET THAT. BUT SHE REMAINED A BELIEVER JUST AS IT WAS WHEN OUR FRANCHISE MOVED HERE — THE SAME KIND OF LEADERSHIP THAT BROUGHT US TO NATIONAL HAS BROUGHT US THE TWENTY NINETEEN NFL DRAFT. AND I WAS ASKED — IT — THE PANEL DISCUSSION — WHAT WAS THE ONE THING THE — CONVINCED YOUR CLUB TO COME TO NASHVILLE. AND THAT MY ONE WORD ANSWER TO THAT HE IS LEADERSHIP. OTHERS GREAT LEADERSHIP HERE IN THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY THERE’S GREAT LEADERSHIP HERE IN THE FINANCE COMMUNITY. AND THERE’S GREAT LEADERSHIP HERE IN THE POLITICAL — ARENA. AND ALL OF THOSE THINGS COMBINED TO MAKE NASH FULL — THE DESTINATION THAT WE CHOSE AND THOSE VERY SAME FACTORS ARE WHAT LED THE LEAGUE THAT WE BELONG. TO TO BRING ONE OF ITS PREMIERE EVENTS HERE — AND I MENTIONED EARLIER WHICH IS IN THE ROOM. COUPLE OF OUR VICE PRESIDENTS AND ONE OF OUR SENIOR THE DRAFT AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR NATIONAL – AND I THINK IT IS ALMOST OF IN ESTIMABLE VALUES THAT THE DRAFT IS COMING HERE — WHATEVER YOU THOUGHT ABOUT THE NFL BLITZ — THE TEN YEARS AGO TWENTY YEARS AGO. ALL OF YOUR IMPRESSIONS ABOUT THAT WE’RE GOING TO CHANGE OVER THE NEXT MONTH OR MONTH AND A HALF. AFTER YOU SEE WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN HERE WITH THE NFL DRAFT AS STEWARDS SPEARS ONE OF OUR SENIOR VICE PRESIDENTS IS GOING TO TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE THINGS THAT ARE. GOING TO HAPPEN AND WHY IT IS SIGNIFICANT FOR NATIONAL — YOU KNOW IT’S THE ONE ABOUT THINGS THAT REALLY MATTERS NOT SO MUCH THE WAR. BUT THE WIND SO STUART IF YOU’L. STEP UP THANK. THANK YOU STEVE GOOD MORNING — THE ARRIVAL OF THE DRAFT IS A SIGNIFICANT MILESTONE FOR THIS CITY — AS STEVE MENTIONED IT’S THE WILL BE THE LARGEST SPORTING EVENT EVER HOSTED IN THIS STATE IS THE NFL’S. SECOND — BIGGEST EVENT THAT THEY HOST OUTSIDE THE SUPERBOWL SO IT’LL BE QUITE AN HONOR FOR OUR CITY TO HOST IT IF YOU LOOK THROUGH THE HISTORY. OF THE DRAFT WHERE IT’S BEEN HELL IT WAS IN NEW YORK FOR DECADES AND THEN THEY SHIFTED TO CHICAGO AND THEN TO PHILADELPHIA AND THEN TO DALLAS. AND THEN FOLLOWING THOSE THAT LINE OF MAJOR METROPOLITAN AREAS THEY HAVE CHOSEN OUR TOWN AS THINK THIS SPEAKS WONDERS TO THE POTENTIAL OF OUR CITY. AND TO THE PEOPLE THAT SELL THE CITY IT WAS PRESENTED AS THE PERFECT SITE TO CREATE A NEW LARGER BETTER DRAFT TO ME NOT ONLY THEY COME INTO OUR TOWN. WHICH IS MUCH SMALLER THAN THE OTHER CITIES THEY’VE POSTED IN THEY ARE ALSO RAMPING IT UP TO MAKE IT THE LARGEST DRAFT THAT THEY EVER HOSTED. MUCH LESS THAN THE LARGEST EVENT THAT WE’VE WE’VE HOSTED — IT IS A WEEK LONG — SERIES OF EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES CULMINATING WITH THE FIRST ROUND ON THURSDAY NIGHT AND CARING AT THAT PEAK LEVEL OF INTEREST. THROUGH THE WEEKEND PART OF WHAT INTRIGUES THEM ABOUT NASHVILLE IS OUR ABILITY ABILITY TO HOST A PARTY — THE CITY OF NATIONAL WELL RENOWNED FOR AND ENJOYING ITSELF AND ITS PATRONS IN ITS VISITORS AND SO – THE EPICENTER WILL BE DOWNTOWN ON BROADWAY AT FIRST AND THEN SPILLING ACROSS THE RIVER INTO THE PARKING LOT HERE AT NISSAN STADIUM. THE MAIN STAGE WILL BE THE LARGEST STAGE EVER CONSTRUCTED IN NATURAL THAT SO WHAT I UNDERSTAND IT WILL BE MASSIVE WE’VE ALL ENJOYED NEW YEAR’S EVE WITH ALL TOWARD FOR THE JULY WE’LL ENJOY THE TITANS UNIFORM REVEAL LAST SPRING. BUT ALL OF THOSE STAGES SET UPS WILL BE — SIGNIFICANTLY SMALLER THAN WHAT WE’RE GOING TO WITNESS HERE NEXT MONTH — THE MARRIAGE — AS WHEN IT HAPPENS HERE CROSSING THE MULTIPLE GENRES — FROM NOT ONLY COUNTRY THAT WERE WELL KNOWN FOR BUT OBVIOUSLY ALL OF ALL THE OTHER GENRES THAT ARE IMPORTANT. TO THIS MARKET — THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF THE DRAFT IS IS SIGNIFICANT — NOT ONLY THE TENS OF THOUSANDS AND HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF VISITORS THAT COME TO THE TOWN – BUT ALSO THE EXPOSURE FOR THE CITY ON A WORLDWIDE STAGE THE MEDIA COVERAGE OF THE NFL DRAFT IS IMMENSE — IT IS A CROSS — FOR BROADCASTING NETWORKS THIS YEAR THE MOST THAT IT’S EVER HAD SO THAT’LL PROVIDE — NASHVILLE — A FOUR DAY INFOMERCIAL IF YOU WILL TO PRESENT ITSELF TO THE REST OF THE COUNTRY AND TO THE END TO THE WORLD. IN ADDITION TO THE EXCITEMENT THAT COMES FROM THE FAN ACTIVITIES WHICH WILL ALL BE FREE — THAT’S AN IMPORTANT NOTATION FOR THE LEAD IN THE INVESTMENT THEY MAKE IN THE CITY IS THAT ALL THE DRAFT ACTIVITIES ARE FREE — THE WHETHER THAT BE AT THE STADIUM ARE CROSSED DOWNTOWN BUT EVEN BEYOND THOSE DAYS AND ALL THE MEASURED ECONOMIC IMPACT THE NFL. TAKE SPECIAL NOTE TO TRY AND HAVE A LEAVE BEHIND IMPRESSION ON CITIES WHERE THEY HOST THE SUPERBOWL OR THE DRAFT THEY CREATE. OPPORTUNITIES OR SEEK OPPORTUNITIES THROUGHOUT THE WEEK TO INTERACT WITH THE COMMUNITY AND WHICH THE EVENT IS BEING HELD AND TRYING TO CREATE AN IMPRESSION THAT REMAINS — AFTER THE DRAFT IS OVER SO I’D LIKE TO TINA TOGGLE UP NOW SO SHARE A LITTLE LOOK INTO WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN AS THE LEAGUE IN THE TITANS.

THIS BE NUMBER. TWO SO IT’S A IT’S A IT’S A MAJOR COUP FOR US TO GET IT. I’D SAY BETWEEN BUSH AND STEPHEN ALL AT THE I MEAN THEY DID A GREAT JOB. SEEMS LIKE WE’RE HEARING A RECURRING THEME OF NISSAN STADIUM IN YOUR ORGANIZATION HERE THE TITANS COLLABORATING WITH THE NUMBER OF VARIOUS PARTNERS IN OUR COMMUNITY TO PUT ON PHENOMENAL. SPORTING EVENTS AND OTHER EVENTS AND IT’S IT’S REALLY TREMENDOUS SO THANK YOU GUYS FOR THE WORKpT SOUNDS VERY COMPLEX BUT IT SOUNDS ALSO. LIKE A THERE’S A LOT OF PEOPLE INVOLVED THINKING THROUGH ALL THESE THESE DETAILS SO. HELPFUL TO HEAR ABOUT IT TODAY. GOOD QUESTION THE DRAFT BEER FOR THIS CASE WILL BE ANNOUNCED AT THE AT THE BOTTOM. AND LOOKING INTO THE RESTROOM SO LOOKS LIKE ONE CORRECTION FRANCE ON ONE SIDE OF THE ROADWAY FOR ONE SIDE OF THE LOWER AREA IN FRONT OF THE WE’RE GOING TO HAVE SALES MOST OF ITS ME OPEN STANDING. STORY CORRECT. GOOD EVENING AT A GRANDSTANDING SEE IS — HOSTED BY THE THE ONLY PUBLIC ACCOUNTING WILL FILL THE STREETS OKAY. BUT THE SERVICE. SO I THINK THAT THINGS ARE MUCH AS ME SIX STORIES TALL SO. THE FACT WE FEED IS FOUR STORES. SO. YEAH. A MASON HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SET UP. I SAY HARD BANDS. THE FIRE POLES. AND AROUND ABOUT AS FAR FROM WRONG. SO I STARTED THIS WITH. AN GOOD FIGHT SO THEY CAN BRING IT BACK UP AND THEN WE’RE GONNA SEE MOST OF THE SECOND SET. SO DEADLY JUST TO FOLLOW UP ON YOUR INQUIRY ABOUT IT — THE MAIN THEATER STAGE. WILL BE A FACTOR OF THREE TIMES BIGGER THAN ANYTHING THAT’S EVER BEEN BUILT ON NATIONAL FULL. THE STAGE IS FIVE HUNDRED FEET WIDE. AND THEN GOES ABOUT A BLOCK IN BOTH DIRECTIONS ON FIRST. FOR THE VARIOUS MEDIA ROOMS GREEN ROOMS — STAFF MEDIA WORKING AREAS IT WILL BE COLOSSAL — BUT THAT’S THE SCOPE OF WORK — SOMETHING LIKE THE NFL DRAFT. BRINGS TO WHATEVER CITY IT GOES TO IT’S IT’S GOING TO BE — QUITE A SHOW — I SHOULD NOT HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO INTRODUCE A LOT OF PEOPLE. FROM TIME TO TIME AND I AM I HAVE NEVER BEEN PROUDER TO INTRODUCE A MEMBER OF OUR STAFF. THEN I AM THIS MORNING. GIL BEVERLY — WAS EDUCATED OPINION AND GOT DEGREES THERE AND FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF OREGON — AND WHILE EDUCATION IS CERTAINLY IMPORTANT — BUSINESS EXPERIENCE AND AND THE ABILITY TO KNOW WHAT’S COMING NEXT OR EVEN MORE IMPORTANT. IN MY VIEW — THERE ARE SO MANY QUALITIES THAT HE IS GOING TO BRING TO US AND SO MUCH WORK THAT WE HAVE FOR HIM TO DO. DEALS GOING TO BE IN CHARGE OF OUR MULTI MEDIA ARE DIGITAL GROUP OUR MARKETING. OUR OUR BRAND AND OUR PROMOTIONS AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN QUITE AS MUCH EXCITEMENT AROUND A NEW HIRE. AS WE’VE HAD WITH — GUILD — HE IS DEEPLY EXPERIENCED HAVING BEEN AN ESPN FOR OVER A DECADE. AND IT’LL — FUEL SPORTS FOR THE PAST COUPLE OF YEARS — I AND I AM. PRIVILEGED TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY IN REDUCING HIM AND LET HIM TELL YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT HIMSELF. AND WHAT HE PLANS ON DOING YOUR BEVERLY [inaudible] OF TO BE CLEAR I’M KIND OF JUMPING ON THE SHIP THAT I KIND OF THE MIX METAPHORS ACROSS FOOTBALL AND BASEBALL KIND OF BEEN DEPOSITED ON THIRD BASE HERE IN AND AROUND THE HOME — A LOT OF HARD WORK AND HEAVY LIFTING IT’S BEEN DONE BY THE TEAM THAT YOU’VE — ALREADY START TO HEAR FROM AMBUSH IN OTHERS AND I STARTED THREE WEEKS AGO SO IN SORT OF WAIT TO BE IN AWE OF EVERYTHING JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE HERE — FROM A MARKETING AND COMMUNICATIONS STANDPOINT THEY’RE SORT OF THREE OVER OUR KING OBJECTIVES HERE AS WE LOOK TOWARDS THE DRAFTING OF ONE IS THE BASS LINE IN INFORMATION GATHERED I MEAN DELIVERING IN MAKING SURE THAT FANS AND CONSUMERS KNOWS YOU KNOW. THE NUTS AND BOLTS OF WHAT’S GOING ON SO THE DRAFT IS COMING HERE’S WHERE YOU GO A LOT OF INFORMATION THAT A STEWARD AND AND OTHERS HAVE KINDA TALKED US THROUGH IT LIKE WHERE CAN YOU GO TO ACCESS IT WITH WHAT’S AVAILABLE TO ME AS A FAN. AND SO ON AND SO FORTH — THEN FROM THERE IT’S SHOWCASING THE TENNESSEE TITANS BRAND BUT EVEN MORE IMPORTANT IS SHOWCASING MASHAL THE CITY OF NASHVILLE IN THE STATE OF TENNESSEE — YOU KNOW YOU’VE HEARD MULTIPLE TIMES THAT THIS IS THE BIGGEST OF INTENT YES FOUR SEVEN IN TENNESSEE HISTORY WHICH IS GREA. BUT I DON’T EVEN KNOW IF THAT DOES IT JUSTICE — YOU KNOW — MR UNDER WOULD USE THE TERM INESTIMABLE ARMS FLOW WITH A MOUTHFUL IN TERMS OF THE IMPACT OF AN EVENT LIKE THIS AND YOU KNOW IF YOU’RE AROUND SPORTS LONG ENOUGH — OTHER NASS FROM A NASTY GOES TO INDIA GOES TO PHOENIX. IN HAVING AN NFL DRAFT I MEAN THAT’S ONE OF THE BIGGEST SPORTING EVENT IN THE COUNTRY OKAY SO IT’S NOT EVEN THERE’S NO BALLS BEING PLAYED BUT YOU KNOW IN TERMS OF WHERE IT SITS IN THE CONSTELLATION OF EVENTS HERE. IT’S UP THERE AND SO HAVING AN EVENT LIKE THAT HERE IN NASHVILLE SORT OF THIS IS SOLIDLY PUSHES NATIONAL TO THE FOUR OF THAT ROUTE IN ANNOUNCES THE CITY THAT MUCH FURTHER IN TERMS OF THE TYPE OF CALIBER OF THE YOU KNOW. LOCALE THAT WE ARE IN OUR ABILITY TO PULL THE STUFF OFF SO IT’S IT’S REALLY A MASSIVE THIN- AND I’M EXCITED TO BE ABLE TO PARACHUTE IN ON AND AT THE LAST MINUTE. MAYBE CALL A LITTLE CREDIT. AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST OBVIOUSLY WITH ALL THAT BEING SAID ARE BUT YOU KNOW THE MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS DESIGNED TO INSTILL PRIDE SO TO MAKE SURE THAT FANS UNDERSTAND ALL THAT AND TO REALLY SORT OF USED AS A RALLYING POINT. FOR HEY WE’RE KIND OF BIG TIME HERE IN THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE HERE ARE AWESOME AND THE FACT THAT I AS A FAN GET TO TAP INTO IS A REAL PRIVILEGE AND OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL OF US SO. THAT’S REALLY WHAT THE ESSENCE OF WHAT WE’RE TRYING TO GET ACROSS WITH ALL FOUR ELEMENTS — AND I THINK YOU’LL SEE A LOT OF EXCITEMENT ON TIED AROUND THAT SO IN TERMS OF THE SPECIFICS. PROMOTIONS ALREADY STARTED IF YOU’VE DRIVEN AROUND ON THE HIGHWAY SYSTEM USED HOPEFULLY SCENES OF OUR DIGITAL BILLBOARDS AND OUTDOOR NOT HOME — STARTED RIGHT AROUND — I THINK MID WEEK LAST WEEK OR MAYBE A LITTLE BIT EARLIER ON THAT WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE DRAFT ITSELF — AND THEN MADE MY MOST NOTABLY WITHIN THE THE PREDATORS PLAYOFFS — ROUND ONE AND I’M SO WE’LL HAVE A FAIR AMOUNT OF LOCAL CABLE. AND WHAT’S REALLY EXCITING ABOUT THAT IS WE HAVE A PRETTY SOLID ROSTER OF HIGH LEVEL — MUSIC ACTS THAT ARE GOING TO BE FEATURED IN OUR VIDEO SO — MY PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE OF MUSIC ENDED AROUND NINETEEN NINETY NINE SO I’M GONNA HAVE — TO REFER TO MY NOTES HERE BUT WE’VE GOT BRING YOU UP TO SPEED. WHEN YOUR MARKETING FOR THE DRIVE TO YOU ALSO IS IT A CO BRANDING FOR THE TITANS — AS WELL OR IS ARE TRICKY THERE HOW DOES — AS WE’RE BUILDING UP. TO THE BIG EVENT NEXT MONTH. HOW TO WE ALSO OF REMIND FOLKS TO TIGHTEN UP? WELL IT IT IS A LITTLE TRICKY IN THE SENSE THAT YOU KNOW THEN IF THE NFL WANTS IT TO BE ABOUT AND THE FELL IN THE DRAFT IT’S NOT YOU KNOW THEY THEY DECIDED WE DON’T WANT IT TO BE ABOUT A SPECIFIC TEAM EVEN THE HOLE IN THE HOSE. MARKET BUT THAT BEING SAID BETWEEN THE TENNESSEE TITANS THE CITY AND OTHERS DOESN’T EXIST IN THIS AND BRING IT HERE SO — THE THE MESSAGING DOES PUT THE TITANS BRAND FRONT CENTERS WELL- IN YOU KNOW WITHOUT SORT OF BEATING OUR CHESTS AND AND AND BEING BRAGGADOCIO — THE INTENT IS TO YOU KNOW CLEAN A LITTLE BIT OF CREDIT IN ND REALLY BRING IT YOU KNOW WEST SO MUCH ABOUT THE TITANS FRANCHISE BUT THE TITANS NATION. THE TITANS MASON IS WELCOMING THIS EVENT TO THE CITY AND THAT YOU GET TO BE A PART OF IT AND YOU SHOULD BE PROUD SO — YOU KNOW THAT’S A LOT TO COMMUNICATE LITERALLY IN A THIRTY SECOND SPOT OR OR YOU KNOW SOCIAL POSTER WHATEVER BUT THE WAY THAT WERE CRAFTING THE MESSAGING IS DESIGNED TO SERVE EVOKE THAT FEELING — SO YOU’LL SEE OUR LOGO’S YOU’LL SEE TIGHTEN UP — YOU KNOW IT THE A LOT OF THE THE PROMOTION IS COLLINS. THIS RELEASE OF THE SCHEDULE — SO THEY’LL BE A LOT OF HITTING GREETING MESSAGES. BOTH OF THOSE EVENTS AND SO THAT’S ANOTHER WAY THAT YOU KNOW WILL BE PROVIDING THE TITANS AT THE SAME TIME — YOU GET READY FOR THE DRAFT GET READY FOR THE SEASON SO YEAH WE’RE ABSOLUTELY WEAVING OURSELVES TO ROUTE IT. AGAIN WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT’S INCLUSIVE [inaudible] SO LATIN TERMS IS THAT LIKE IS THAT THE THE SPECIFICS AND SOME OF THE ACTS THAT WE’RE INCLUDING IT SAID JIMMY ALLEN JUSTIN MOORE FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE — AFFECTIONATELY KNOWN AS FGL AND ARE ARE ALWAYS — LADY ANTEBELLUM A MISSILE TEN PENNY — LOW CASH — AND OTHERS THAT WERE STILL WORKING ON BUT THE INTENT THERE IS THERE’S GONNA BE A THREE SECOND DRAFT SPOT THAT SOME OF THESE WE FEATURED IN. BUT THEN THROUGHOUT THE SOCIAL MEDIA THEY’LL BE BUTTONS — INTERVIEWING FOLKS AND HAVING THEM TALK ABOUT NATIONAL WHAT ARE YOUR TOP FIVE HONKY TONKS ORDER TOP FIVE RESTAURANTS — WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO WHEN YOU COME INTO TOWN — WHAT IS THE HIDDEN GEM THAT YOU LIKE TO GO TO SO AGAIN SHINING A LIGHT ON THE CITY AND MUNICIPALITY AS WE LEAD INTO THE DRAFT? AND THEN YOU’LL SEE A BUTTON OF THEM SAYING TIGHTEN TIGHTEN UP OR OR GO TITANS AND THINGS OF THAT AS WELL SO BRING YOU KNOW CLOSING THE LOOP AND BRINGING IT BACK — TO THE FRANCHISE’S WELL — BEYOND THAT WE’RE DOING ENOUGH FAIR AMOUNT OF JUST EDITORIAL COVERAGE — THE YOU KNOW HARD THE VOICE OF THE TITANS MY KEYS SURE YOU’RE ALL FAMILIAR WITH — IS LAUNCHING A REALLY AMBITIOUS AND BOLD INITIATIVES WHERE HE’S GOING TO DO THIRTY PODCAST IN THIRTY DAYS LEADING INTO THE THE DRAFT ITSELF AND THAT’S GOING TO REALLY BE AN EXHAUSTIVE LOOK AT EVERYTHING FROM. WHO THE TITANS ARE GOING TO BE LOOKING AT AND WHAT OUR STRATEGY IS GOING IN FROM A FOOTBALL STANDPOINT? ON TO THE ENTERTAINMENT STUFF THAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT AND EVEN THE MARKETING AND PROMOTION AND HOW WE’RE BRINGING IT TO LIFE — SO — REALLY — AND THEN ALSO ALONG THAT VEIN OF MAKING SURE THAT FANS FEEL LIKE THEIR WINTER AND ALL THIS A LITERALLY. WE HAVE A PAIR OF CONSUMER PROMOTIONS WHERE YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO WIN THE THE CHANCE. TO HAND OUR FOURTH ROUND WHEN OUR FIRST ROUND DRAFT PICK THEIR THIRD DRAFT CAP AFTER THEY’VE BEEN DRAFTED. SO THAT REALLY MEAN TO LITERALLY BE A PART OF THE RIGHT OF SHOW – OUR SECOND PROMOTIONS RUN INTO A LITTLE BIT OF A HECK UP BECAUSE IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ANNOUNCE OUR SEVENTH ROUND DRAFT PICK — UNFORTUNATELY OR FORTUNATELY — OUR GENERAL MANAGER’S WHEELING AND DEALING WITH DELTA WAY THAT TAKES A WE DON’T HAVE A SEVENTH ROUND DRAFT PICK RIGHT NOW. SO TRY TO FIGURE OUT HOW WE’RE GONNA REPLACE THAT BUT ULTIMATELY IT’S GOING TO BE SOME REALLY COOL BEHIND THE SCENES OPPORTUNITY FOR SOMEBODY. TO AGAIN BE A PART OF IT SO YOU KNOW IN ADDITION TO YOU KNOW JUST SORT OF HAVING IT IN OUR HOMETOWN IS ALSO TO BE OPPORTUNITIES FOR LITERALLY FANS TO BE A WINNER AND ALL THIS WHICH WERE EXCITED ABOUT.
