NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A two-day memorial for the former Titan, Steve McNair, was held at LP field. Fans took time from work, from their lives, to come to the stadium to pay tribute to the Titans quarterback.
"During the time he was playing so brilliantly in Nashville we watched him every Sunday with my mom who is now 90 years old. I named my pet number 9 so I still have a Steve McNair in my life," said McNair fan Betty Locke.
During the event, highlights were played from McNair's career, and fans could leave personal messages in books that will be given to the McNair family.
"He was a tremendous warrior and lead on the field and in the community by example," said McNair fan Patrick Brien.
Though his time in years may have been brief it was the way he spent his time that mattered more to fans, both on the field and off of it.
"I was more so impressed with is plays off the field than on the field he's a great ball player but he gave so much to the African American community," said McNair fan Chequita Winters.
The event was held Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
