(WVLT) - From a sports perspective, it was a who's who of speakers at Thursday's "Get Motivated" Seminar in Downtown Knoxville, at the Civic Auditorium.
In fact, many in the overflow crowd were forced to watch the daylong motivational conference not live inside the Civic Coliseum, but on close-circuit television, about a mile away inside a Knoxville Convention Center Ballroom.
Former Vol And Super Bowl XLI Winning Indianapolis Colts Quarterback Peyton Manning was there, albeit late this afternoon as the conference was winding-down.
Vols Basketball Coach Bruce Pearl spoke took the stage in prime fashion early this morning, in his element reving up the crows.
And Coach Pearl was followed a-bit later around mid-morning by Vols Football Coach Phillip Fulmer.
Eight speakers in all took the stage, each there to motivate, encourage, and inspire.
