NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vince Young knew exactly what he wanted to wear for Jeff Fisher's charity softball game.
He slipped on a blue jersey with "RIP POPS" and the No. 9 on the back in honor of the late Steve McNair. Fisher, who spoke at McNair's memorial and funeral services, called the game in the ninth inning. The score? Tied at 9 apiece.
Sunday marks the one-year anniversary of McNair's slaying in Nashville. He was shot in a murder-suicide by his 20-year-old mistress.
About 4,500 people attended his memorial service in Nashville with thousands of others coming by to pay their respects. A helicopter provided live TV coverage while McNair's body was moved to the church by hearse, and three of the four local stations showed the service live.
Thousands more said goodbye in his home state of Mississippi.
