Dodging the Roadkill: 2020 Vision

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – So, here we are.  new year, new decade, new beginnings.  What’s next? 

I think a lot of us ask that same question. 

Resolutions?  I don’t make them, because I can’t seem to keep them.  I would guess you might be the same. 

We all need to be better than we were yesterday, so moving forward, I just try to take it one day at a time.  The older I get, the more I realize that if I just get the most out of each day, treating people better than before, pushing myself a little more, and motivating myself to step up my game, then it wears off on the ones I love and the people I meet.

Nashville Predators down the Dallas Stars 5-3

 

Nashville PredatorsDallas, TX – The Nashville Predators defeated the Dallas Stars in a highly entertaining game tonight 5-3.  Pekka Rinne stood tall in net for the Predators to keep Nashville in this one, giving the boys a chance to win it. 

The Predators win the season series against the Stars with the win tonight, in what many feel will be a first round matchup for the Stanley Cup playoffs.  The two teams have already been announced as the feature of the Winter Classic.

Brian Boyle continues to show why the Predators made a trade for him just a couple of weeks ago as he lit the lamp first for the Predators at 10:50 of the opening frame.  It was Boyle’s second goal for the Predators since joining the team and got Nashville the early lead, 1-0.

Nashville Predators embarrassed by the Las Vegas Golden Knights 5-1

 

Nashville PredatorsLas Vegas, NV– The Las Vegas Golden Knights ran roughshod over the Nashville Predators tonight in sin city, breaking a five game home losing streak with the win, 5-1.

Nashville starting goalie Juuse Saros blocked 45 shots on the night, but Las Vegas attempted the most shots on goal for the season against Nashville with 50.

The Predators thought they had the first goal of the night in the first period when Colton Sissons scored on a breakaway, but the goal was disallowed when Vegas challenged for off side.  After the video review, it was determined that Sissons WAS in fact off side, so no goal.

Nashville Predators defeat the Colorado Avalanche 4-1, Laviolette notches 600th

 

Nashville PredatorsDenver, CO– The Nashville Predators broke through with a much needed win today in the mile high city of Denver, Colorado, shutting down the Avalanche, 4-1.

Coming off of back to back losses, the Predators stood tall behind the unbelievable play of their Vicenza Trophy winning goalie, Pekka Rinne.

Rinne absolutely shut the Avalanche down in the first period and had it not been for his stellar play, Nashville could have easily been down 5-0.

Head coach Peter Laviolette had commented that he saw a lot of good things in his team over the last couple of games, but they needed to come better prepared to start the first period.  Nashville fell behind early in the last two games and couldn’t recover.

Dodging the Roadkill: Two Bikers And A Bucket List

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Every biker wants to ride the legendary Route 66.  Many of you have, and if you’re like me, you have it on your bucket list.  Two friends of mine recently completed that trek, logging nearly 5,000 miles before they got home.

David Bearden and Matt Moriarty have been friends for nearly 30 years.  They’re both veteran bikers who share the love of the open road and plenty of “wind therapy.”  They began planning their wild west trip nearly two years ago and like most adventures, it began with a simple, “we should do this.”

Riding along Route 66 was just the beginning of their 3 week adventure.  They visited the world’s largest Mcdonalds, the Route 66 Museum, and had dinner at The Big Texan, a legendary steak house.
