I had started to get bored with basically nothing to do, when I read an article in the Nashville paper about “Cab drivers upset over Uber.”

I thought, “what the hell is Uber?”

My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Sweep Chicago Blackhawks, Now What?

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators have done something that nobody could have ever predicted.  The eighth seeded Preds have won four games in a row over the Stanley Cup Champions, and #1 seed, Chicago Blackhawks.  It’s called a SWEEP!

Not one single hockey writer, broadcaster, play-by-play guy, producer, coach, player or even the equipment guy could have ever predicted that the Nashville Predators would sweep their series against Chicago.
