I’m Excited About Hockey?

Being excited or even knowing that the hockey season is starting is something I wouldn’t have done years ago. Our hockey season begins tonight when the Nashville Predators open their 2019-2020 season against the Minnesota Wild. Growing up in the South, the sport of ice hockey wasn’t known that...

Predators Fall Short…Again.

John Klingberg probably did us a favor when he scored from the left circle in overtime which ended the season for the Nashville Predators.  He put an end to the most frustrating experience I have had since I moved to Nashville four years ago and became a Predators’ fan....

When Your Team Loses

3-0 Series Lead? Remember The Super Bowl

The Nashville Predators are one win away from eliminating the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup playoffs.  The city is abuzz today and hopeful that the Predators can complete their first playoff series sweep in team history.   Last week, I posted my commentary about the Predators and predicted they would...

Can Predators Repeat Last Year’s Playoff Magic?

I will answer that question in the first sentence:  No.  They will not have the kind of playoff run they had last year when they stunned the Anaheim Ducks in seven games and pushed the San Jose Sharks to game seven before being eliminated. The Nashville Predators open the...
