My Two Cents: What a Wild Ride with the Nashville Predators

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterNashville, TN – Well it’s over.  The true “Cinderella” of the National Hockey League, our Nashville Predators, have bowed out.  Losing last night 2-0, the Penguins win the series and hoist Lord Stanley’s cup for the second year in a row.

I was there, and I didn’t like it one bit.

Honestly, I’m so exhausted I can barely hold my head up.  This playoff series, while exciting as hell, has taken me physically, mentally and financially.  I was ready for this to be over a couple of weeks ago. 

I’m going to try and put all of this in perspective as best I can, without mentioning the officiating.  I’ll leave that for another column.

My Two Cents: Nashville Predators On The Verge, Fans Off The Charts

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators hockey team is on the verge of winning the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs and Predator’s fans have TOTALLY lost it!

In a REALLY exciting way!

As a season ticket holder, I’ve endured the good and the bad from this team.  As I’ve previously posted, this team looks unbeatable at times, and others, they look like they’re just treading water.  During this round of playoff hockey, they look invincible.
