Tennessee Titan Jason McCourty

Hey Cuties,

Happy Hump Day Wednesday, how is the week going thus far? Are you finished shopping, haven’t started shopping, or don’t plan to shop? Have you decorated your home yet? I haven’t but at least we took the tree out of the attic. Yay for fake trees, because real tree allergies.  I have a fun interview for you about Game Day & Holiday Traditions with Tennessee Titan’s Jason McCourty and his mom. Fun Fact: His twin brother Devin McCourty plays for the New England Patriots.

Back Story: The McCourty family story is a unique one. Twins Devin and Jason McCourty were born 27 minutes apart and at age three, their dad died. As kids they promised to get scholarships to college to ease their mother’s financial burden.  They did that and played football together at Rutgers University. Their Mom always told them “There’s always going to be adversity, it’s how you deal with it that makes the difference.” she knew best and they made it to the NFL.

Jason and Devin make sure they stay in touch especially because they are own two different NFL teams. That means they have to make an extra effort to spend time when they don’t have games.  Fun Fact: Jason is #30 and Devnin is #32 in the NFL. Their Mother wears a custom split jersey representing each team at all times. Jason’s number is on the front and Devin’s number is on the back. HOW CUTE IS THIS!!!!

McCourty Game Day traditions include:

o   Texting encouragement before games

o   Writing each other’s numbers on their game-day shoes

o   Thinking of their late dad before each game, sometimes having a silent conversation

o   Post-game talks with mom

o   A game-day hand shake from their college careers

Fun Fact: Jason is an American football corner-back for the Tennessee Titans of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the 6th round, 203 overall pick of the 2009 NFL Draft.

Jason and Devin shared the same Bye Week for the first time and they celebrated with a party. Duh, wouldn’t you? During that time, they did a commercial which was really cute; this time Mom was the star.
