Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators continue to make history as the Central Division/Western Conference regular season champions ended their season with a win over the Columbus Blue Jackets, 4-2.  In front of their 102nd sell out Bridgestone Arena crowd, the boys didn’t disappoint.

My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Make History, Destiny to be Determined

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterNashville, TN – Well, now they’ve gone and done it.  Those Nashville Predators have won their second round playoff series against the St. Louis Blues.  They’ve done forged themselves into the record books, and will play for the Western Conference Championship against a yet to be determined opponent.

I don’t know if Predators fans can take it up another notch, but if there was a fan base that’s willing to say, “hey, hold my beer, and watch this” it’s Nashville. 

I’ve said all along that being at the Bridgestone Arena during a hockey game is the most earth shattering experience and I’ve seen AC/DC, Ted Nugent, and Cheap Trick in concert and by God, those were LOUD!
