Nashville Predators embarrassed at home by Buffalo Sabres 7-4

 

Nashville PredatorsClarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators fell to the visiting Buffalo Sabres at Bridgestone Arena tonight, 7-4.  To say this was an embarrassing loss would be an understatement.

Nashville still leads the central division of the Western Conference, but only by five points over Winnipeg, who beat the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight.

Buffalo’s Sam Reinhart tipped his hat to the Predators with his hat trick, while Jack Eichel had a career high five assists. 

This was a game that the Predators want to quickly forget.

Dodging the Roadkill: Accountability

 

*Editor’s Note:  This is an article from our motorcycle blog, Dodging the Roadkill*

Dodging the RoadkillClarksville, TN – I shared this image on Facebook recently and it’s been viewed from my account, 75,000 times.  It obviously struck the same cord with you that it struck with me.  It caused me to write this post. 

When I began this journey, I took it VERY seriously.  Not only was it a financial decision, but it was a safety issue.  I was 63 years old when I entered this lifestyle and there were questions.

Could I still ride a motorcycle?  Was I strong enough, were my reactions still sharp, did I have the stamina?  I felt that I could answer “yes” to all of those concerns.  Even though there are many factors that are completely out of my control, I knew that I wanted this, I NEEDED this and I was DEFINITELY going to do this and I KNEW it was dangerous.
