Maybe the Tennessee Titans haven't generated much buzz over the past two or three seasons, but that didn't stop one loyal fan from showing his desire to see his favorite team.

In an age of internet, cellphones and ticket brokers, one Titans fan isn't giving up the old fashioned time-honored way of camping out for tickets. When the Titans first came to Tennessee, many fans would camp out for days for the 3,000 per game tickets that are made available. However, as the digital age has progressed, the need to camp out for tickets, the way fans used to for concerts in the '70s and '80s, has gone the way of eight-tracks and Oldsmobiles.

The man was awakened from his sleep on the LP Field sidewalk and interviewed by WKRN Channel 2 in Nashville just a couple of hours before single-game tickets went on sale for Titans games. He said the reason he still camps out is becaus he doesn't have a credit card.

The fan said his goal was to buy tickets to the Titans' Oct. 20 date with the NFC champion San Francisco 49ers - and to keep the camping out tradition alive.
