September 7, 2006--The 2006 NFL season begins tonight with the Miami Dolphins playing the Pittsburgh Steelers--and country music will be well-represented. The half-time show will feature performances from Rascal Flatts, Martina McBride and the PovertyNeck Hillbillies. And though Tim McGraw won't be there, he tells X Radio that he's definitely ready for some football. Tim says when it comes to one of his favorite teams, the Tennessee Titans, he'd like to be more than just a fan--he'd like to own the team.

"I would love to be involved with the Titans," says Tim. "I grew up being an athlete, playing football and baseball and basketball, and if I could get away with it, I'd still play now if it wouldn't kill me. But I would love to be a part of it for a lot of reasons, [including] my dad playing pro baseball. It's just something that's always gonna be a big part of my life, so to be involved in it at a level like that would be great."
