Sinkhole opens outside Titans' stadium

A sinkhole estimated at 20 to 30 feet wide and 4 to 5 feet deep has opened just outside LP Field in Nashville, where the Tennessee Titans play.

The team says it has been working with local authorities to figure out how to fix the sinkhole, which is about 40 feet from the field.

“It’s been almost two months, since it showed itself and we’re working with Metro Water for some guidance on how to fix it,” Robbie Bohren, director of media relations for the Titans, told the Tennessean. “It’s not a hazard for fans coming to the stadium, and the sinkhole is not growing in size at this point, so it’s just a matter of finding a final resolution.”

The sinkhole is one of many that has been seen in Tennessee after the May flooding in the state. During that flooding LP Field sustained about $3 million in damage.

    Can’t blame Lendale White anymore after he quit the tequila and got shipped to Seattle.

    In response, Jerry Jones is planning a 300 foot deep sinkhole for his stadium. With stripper poles.

    Unfortunately Chris Johnson’s agent was not anywhere near the freak occurrence!?

    That pretty much sums up Nick Harper’s season last year. He fell into it and receivers were stockpiling yards on him.

    We will be using the hole as a collection point for yellow towels which we will confiscate in week 2. Don’t EVEN bring those stinky nasty things into our house this time or risk losing them to the HOLE! Terrible things could happen.

    That sinkhole is a sign of the upcoming season.

    Looks like the curse of the Terrible Towel didn’t leave with Lendale White after all.
    Titans have been a disaster since the day he pulled that stunt on the sideline.

    Vince Young couldn’t even hit the sinkhole with a pass.

    In a few months another giant “sinkhole” will open up for the Titans. The 2010 NFL season.
