Congratulations, Predators’ fans. You deserve this loss.


Oh, Nashville. Great city to visit, but horrible hockey fans in them (sorry if I offend someone).

Even though I am not really the biggest fan of the Penguins (I was pulling for the Senators), I had to do what was right and pull for them to beat the team that swept the Blackhawks two months ago. Call me a bitter man, but my reasons are warranted. And before I get to why fans of the Predators are annoying bastards, I will say the referees screwed them on two goals that could have won them the series. I don’t wish that on any team, but oh well.

Now, this is why I called:

First, these fans are the absolute worst. They heckle the goalie on the other team by chanting the name followed by a “You suck…it’s all your fault.” Good Lord. That’s atrocious. When it came to the Blackhawks, fans of the Canucks use to chant crap like that. Ask them how that turned out. In Game 6 of this series, they were chanting Matt Murray’s name even though he didn’t give up a goal. I guess it makes sense seeing as their hockey IQ is below average.

Next, copying traditions. For the last half century or whatever, the Red Wings have had a tradition of throwing an octopus onto the ice during playoff games. Now, I don’t like the Red Wings either, but at least I respect them. There’s a difference there. What do the “great” fans of Nashville do? They throw a catfish onto the ice. Wow. That is so awesome! Then, some moron tried throwing one onto the ice during Game 1 in Pittsburgh. He was promptly arrested. Stupidity should be a crime.

So, congratulations to Nashville Predators and and their “great” fan base consistent of country music singers who had no idea what hockey was until April. If I do go to Nashville for work next month, I’ll be glad to walk around with one of my Blackhawks’ shirts again.

    As you know, my experience as a saxophone player is approaching 20 years. I wish I could go to Memphis like I did three years ago. The music there is off the charts and I was bummed that I couldn’t spend more than a few hours there at that time. Nashville just doesn’t cut it for me.

    Sidney Crosby is simply too much for most teams. And Murray is unbelievable. Penguins are going to be tough next year too.

    I’ve caught a couple Predators games over the years being that I live 40 minutes outside downtown Nashville. Those chants they do are cringeworthy. I can see why someone wouldn’t like the atmosphere, especially with all the celebrity bullshit happening. Luke Bryan a Predators fan? Google “Luke Bryan Blackhawks” and that puts an end to that. Nashville is more accustomed to SEC sports, so it comes across as something you’d see from a rowdy & drunken SEC crowd.

  5. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Oh, and the fans can be rather delusional. Saw someone on Facebook complain when Crosby won the Conn Smythe. They said Rinne deserved it over him, haha. Just be glad you don’t have to listen to sports talk radio down here. They’re still ripping Manti Te’o for that shit that happened to him four years ago. Basically never listen to it.

    ribbing* not ripping

    You and I had a discussion a couple of years back about meatball fans in different cities. I still don’t think any other place tops Chicago in that department.

    If I do go down to Nashville for work in July or August, you should meet up. One of my former employees moved to Chattanooga and may make the two hour drive up as well.

    Hey, Fro. If you ever wander over into the L.A. area let me know. I’ll show you around. 🙂

  9. Fro Dog Says:


    I actually do plan on going to L.A. as well within the next year or two. Two of my main wholesalers for my business are in Corona and Moorpark, respectively. I know that’s not too far from your area. They keep telling me to come out there and check out the warehouses. If the Blackhawks have a road trip out there that aligns with my work, I want to make the trip.

    Sneaking off topic…

    Has anybody here who surfs Deadspin noticed that now they want you to turn off your AdBlocker?

    Looks like somebody’s losing ad revenue…

  11. Fro Dog Says:

    It’s not just them. It’s other sites as well. And now, these fuckers are getting creative. WrestleZone, a site I have read since 1999-2000, has been bombarded with ads over the last year or so. I downloaded AdBlocker and it was a miracle. The site was running perfectly for all of this time – until two days ago. They have found a way around AdBlock and it’s slowing down my computer just like it use to.

    This is the world we live in now. It’s fucking stupid. The internet has been bombarded with ads and it’s ruining computers.

  12. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Yeah I’ll meet up if I have the time (can’t on weekends, work all day on them). Just let me know. I better warn you though that I’m the most boring individual in terms of extrovertism.

  13. Fro Dog Says:

    Maybe I should ask Chucky to road trip along. That way, you have no choice but to socialize.

    But yes, I will let you know. It’s most likely to be on a weekday anyway and I would only be there a couple of days.

  14. dvxprime Says:

    Deadpan pulled back on their anti-AdBlocker campaign. Guess it was a bad idea to fuck with their fellow SJWs.

  15. erniesarmy Says:

    Okay, Fro. Let me know a couple of weeks ahead of time so I can be prepared.

  16. Fro Dog Says:


    Without a doubt, I would try to give as much notice as possible. I’ll have to deal with sorting out travel plans (hotel, car, etc.). My guess is, it will a Blackhawks vs. Kings or Ducks game that I would attend. Once again, it all just depends on when.
