Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving turkey. WishUponACupcake/FlickrBirmingham’s just a little quieter than normal as people begin to make that journey over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house (or wherever their journeys may be taking them today). It is known as the busiest traveling day of the year, but we knew there’d be a few of you checking in…

So we’re hoping that you’ll be willing to share your stories with the rest of The Terminal’s community during the next couple of days. Today’s Magic City Question hopes that we’ll learn more about long-standing and new traditions for the holiday while we’re taking a page out of The New York Times‘ book and seeing if folks are willing to share photos of their pending feasts and all of the preparation that goes along with it.

No matter what you choose to do, we hope that you enjoy Thanksgiving tomorrow!

Todd Bates talk about Steve McNair’s legacy

I had the privilege to sit and talk with former University of Alabama’s Crimson Tide captain Todd Bates, a Heflin, AL native who signed as an undrafted free agent with the NFL’s Tennessee Titans in 2005.

Bates was honest about his personal experience with former Titans teammate, quarterback Steve McNair, sharing his thoughts on what McNair’s legacy might be in light of his tragic and untimely death on Saturday in Nashville.
