Don’t sleep on Steve McNair.
If you didn’t know about him — youuu better get to…
Facts About Steve:
Born and raised in MOUNT OLIVE, MISSISSIPPI (led Mt. Olive to championship as a JUNIOR!)
Was drafted #3 over all by the Houston Oilers in 1995.
Pro Bowl (3xs), All-Pro, & Co-MVP (Titans)
But those are just facts… What do we really know about Steve McNair?
I grew up watching Steve while he was playing for the Titans. Became a fan (without knowing what in the heck was going on); but my father who was a TRUE fan of McNair and also was his fraternity brother (Omega Psi Phi),
that’s all I knew at the time — Steve McNair.
However, I was also a fan of Eddie George #27! =]
Steve was married to a gorgeous woman by the name of Mechelle
and had sons during their marriage (Steve LaTreal McNair & Steven O’Brian McNair).
While McNair was throwing footballs for the NFL, Mechelle, who was a Golden Girl for ASU, lived out a long time dream of hers and went back to school to get her nursing degree.
“Nobody else knows how many times she has taken care of me when I couldn’t even move in the middle of the night or morning after a game.”
-Steve McNair, 2004
….an AMAZING woman she is.
McNair also had 2 other sons (Tyler and Trenton), by other women.
On this day, 2 years ago, Steve McNair was found dead with 4 gunshot wounds to his head and body in his condo in downtown Nashville, TN.
Along lay beside him… a woman,
Whom Mechelle, knew nothing about.
It was later proven that this woman, took McNair’s life while he was asleep on the couch, and later took her own with a gunshot wound to her temple.
Steve McNair was buried in Prentiss, MS.
McNair’s 4 children each will receive (if haven’t already) $500,000
Me? Well McNair’s legacy will continue to live on…
I just hope SOMEONE learned from this crazy love triangle…
