Kamerion Wimbley serves up another offseason TV appearance

Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 11:30pm

Last offseason Kamerion Wimbley went on television and flexed his muscles.

This year he’s licking his chops.

The Tennessee Titans defensive end is one of three current NFL players featured in Friday’s episode of the Rachel Ray Show (3 p.m., WTVF-TV Ch. 5), which focuses on football — in particular game day dishes — in advance of Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday.

The Wichita, Kan., native serves up his Andouille Sausage and Shrimp over Creamy Cheese Grits against offerings from Indianapolis defensive end Dwight Freeney and New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett.

Former NFL defensive tackle and current broadcaster Tony Siragusa appears as a guest judge and picks which dish he thinks is best.

Cooking is a hobby for Wimbley, a seven-year veteran who joined the Titans as a free agent last season, and he has honed his craft, in part, by watching 30 Minute Meals with Rachel Ray on the Food Network. He also credits his parents and grandmother as culinary influences.

Last summer the admitted fan of reality television advanced out of the Southeast Region on American Ninja Warrior, on which contestants must negotiate an obstacle course that gets the best of the majority who attempt it.

This is how a 6-10 team rolls.

How did "Titans All Access" miss this story? A couple of more stories like this and Mark, Frank and Kevin will be stumbling over themselves with Hall of Fame superlatives for Wembley. John McClain may again fabricate stories about how he dined with the Wembley family when Kamerion was only a teenager.

C, your jealously is off the charts! LOL! Great story, Mr Boclair!

TITAN1, only in your world could you equate on-field success and improvement with a soft news story like this. Amazing.

C, you and a few others find something negative in everything. Amazing.

TITAN1, later this year when the Best Sports Stories of 2013 are published, will you include this article among those so ethereal and rare? From what I glean you are giving Boclair a Pulitzer? Heck, you are turning into the Mike Keith of NCP boards--screaming superlatives where routine to mundane exist.

Positive attitudes do bother negative people. Speaking of Mike Keith, didn't you just love it that his call of the Music City Miracle was voted one of the all time best? He is great to listen to, unless of course you are jealous for some reason. You need to learn to be more positive, then you will be a happier person.

Music City Miracle = great play. Subsequent high volume excitement on extra points, sacks, and touchdowns = unnecessary, homer, corporate sellout. TITAN1 if you cannot handle the truth, go to work for The Zone or The Game. There you can join Good Ship Lollypop passengers knowing your 6-10 Titans were once playing for pride before the Green Bay beat down.

You really are jealous of our local media. I wonder why that is?

By: courier37027 on 2/3/13 at 5:38

TITAN1, I am not jealous. I am critical. Access a dictionary or ask your wife to tell you the meanings and differences in those two words. The alleged "sports media" in this town are more of a prop or mouthpiece for the Titans, rather than a reporting, critical entity. Media become fans, and fans regurgitate whatever rah-rah story that won't cost the reporter his media passes and game day tickets.

By: TITAN1 on 2/3/13 at 9:48

C, our local media SHOULD be homers! We all should be proud of our home town and all it has to offer. If that doesn't suit you, DON'T LISTEN! And yes, your post reeks with jealousy! Sounds like you may have had your media pass and game day tickets revoked.
