SOME CALL ME TIM: In Buffalo, Andrew Galarneau notes the Tim Hortons chain and the Sabres yesterday announced that a statue of former NHLer Tim Horton "will anchor a destination-caliber edition" of the QSR at HarborCenter next to First Niagara Center. The store will "include limestone from the demolished" Buffalo Memorial Auditorium, as well as "wooden furniture that replicates the former arena's blue seats" (BUFFALO NEWS, 4/2).
REMEMBER THE TITANS' FANS: In Nashville, Jim Wyatt reports the Titans have "finalized plans on two initiatives" that President & CEO Tommy Smith "believes will create a more fan-friendly experience this season: free Wi-Fi and a new food-and-beverage concessionaire." Aramark "replaces Centerplate as food-and-beverage concessionaire." Centerplate "had the contract" since LP Field opened in '99. Smith added that towers for Wi-Fi are "going up and should be operational in time for the preseason opener in August." Smith said that the franchise has "employed a service team that will reach out to all season-ticket holders for feedback on how accounts should be handled and on other potential game-day improvements" (Nashville TENNESSEAN, 4/2).
