A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to work with Volunteer Ministries at an event to raise money.  They roasted Coach Bruce Pearl!  It was hilarious!  There were some low blows, but it was all in good fun and for a great cause.  Mayor Bill Haslam was our MC.  He was in the hot seat last year, so it’s only fair that he gets to be the grand marshall this year.

Dane, I know you want a copy of this!  I’ll even sign it for you!!  And yes ladies, he’s even cuter in person.

Lookin’ a little flushed there coach!

Coach Jones was modeling for the cover of “Pimps and Hustlers Magazine” (joke courtesy of Dane Bradshaw)

Coach Pearl couldn’t stay seated!  He jumped up on just about every roaster!


Everyone jokes about Coach Summit having “the look”….and it is very fierce.  However, I’m so happy I was able to get catch a great genuine laugh from her. 





Of course everyone was lined up when it was all over for an autograph from all the coaches.  

These are all of the roasters and those sitting up at the head table.  The only one we’re missing here is Ginny Weatherstone who is VMC’s fearless leader.  

My coaches collection is complete!  I now have a picture with all of the major UT coaches.  This picture was taken by Coach Tony Jones.  Coach Jones, I think you need a little photo lesson.  Maybe between groups at the next Fore The Kids Golf Tournament.
