Jaguars’ Home Opener Confirmed For Sunday at EverBank Field
The NFL and Jaguars confirmed yesterday that the team’s home opener vs. the Tennessee Titans will be played Sunday at 1 p.m. at EverBank Field, as scheduled.
The Jaguars followed that announcement with word that the team and owner Shad Khan will make a $1 million donation to Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund, with Khan personally appealing to the Jacksonville community ahead of Sunday’s game to join the recovery effort assisting those affected locally by Hurricane Irma.
“Jacksonville gets labeled as ‘small market,’ but it has a heart bigger than any community I’ve been associated with in my life,” Khan said. “Jacksonville will recover and come back stronger than ever, but who couldn’t use a little help from our friends?
“I’m hoping that our sponsors, partners and fans will think of Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund this week and give what they can. Then, we gather Sunday at EverBank Field to show the world we’re back in a big way, as a team and as a community. This is Jax As One.”
To help deliver a home-field advantage on Sunday and provide both relief and reward to those affected, Khan and the Jaguars will donate 5,000 ... [Read More]

Florida State Faces Alabama In The Chick Fil A Kickoff Game Saturday Night
On Saturday night, No. 1 Alabama will take the field against No. 3 Florida State for the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
It will be the first game at the new state-of-the-art stadium and the field is nearly ready for the highly anticipated contest. The end zones are painted and the finishing touches are being put on ahead of tomorrow’s kickoff
Jalen Hurts returns at quarterback and both Damien Harris and Bo Scarbrough return in the backfield of what should once again be an elite offense to compliment the best defense in the nation. The Crimson Tide ranked seventh in the nation in total yards with 6,829 and averaged 38.8 points per game as well, good for 16th best in the country.
Florida State had a breakout star in redshirt freshman quarterback Deondre Francois last season. Francois showed poise beyond his age with 3,350 passing yards and 20 touchdown passes in 2016 despite playing in a run-heavy offense. The young quarterback should see an uptick in pass attempts this season, but the Seminoles still figure to be an elite rushing team with a strong backfield and offensive line.
The AP Top 25 Poll and the Coaches Poll both have Alabama ranked at No. 1 and Florida State rank... [Read More]

Jacksonville Fair Entertainment Recap
The Jacksonville Agricultural Fair began on Wednesday and started off with Craig Morgan performing on Thursday, and on Friday the Fall Free Gator Country concert series. Craig Morgan has performed recently at the Jacksonville Landing in July and has always put on a great show. A source says that Craig Morgan performed amazing on Thursday Night and brought in a big crowd for the fair’s concert series kick off. He is known for his favorite songs, “International Harvester”, “I Got You”, and his newest song “Waking Up Lovin You”.
The next night the concert series continued on with the newest duo in country music “American Young”. This country duo is led by Jon Stone and Kristy Osmunson. They’re recent single “Love Is War” is played quite often on 99.9 Gator Country. I actually like this song for its soft sound and meaningful lyrics. The girl in the band Kristy Osmunson started out in a duo called Bomshel that began in 2006. Their songs that were hits were “Fight Like a Girl”, “19 and Crazy”, and “Power of One”. After her first band she had joined forces with Jon Stone and helped his form American Young. I think this new duo has a lot of potent... [Read More]
Thanksgiving Block Party at Pete's is ON!!!
Neptune Beach Fla - What started as one lonesome bartender has evolved into a beaches tradition that many depend on as part of their holiday routine. Thirty years ago, one bartender was working on Thanksgiving Day and called his friends to keep him company. The friends showed up, along with the bartenders’ relatives and the rest is history.
Year after year, speculation always surrounds Thanksgiving Day at Pete’s Bar – is it happening? Is security cracking down? Can you bring drinks into the area? The reason for speculation is a result of how big the celebration has become. According to Nancy Jensen, owner and granddaughter of original owner, Peter B. Jensen, Thanksgiving Day at Pete’s started getting big 5 years ago. “We advertised the first couple of years, but now its word of mouth. We’re also open Christmas Day since a lot of people want to congregate at the bar if their family is out of town and the help is always voluntary.”
If you’re planning to attend this year’s Thanksgiving Day at Pete’s, leave your Bloody Mary at home and follow these simple steps: • Pay attention to entry points – the area will be barricaded off and there will be secu... [Read More]
