The Nashville Predators backed their way into the NHL playoffs yesterday with Edmonton's 5-2 loss to Vancouver, despite a 4-1 loss to St. Louis.
The good news in this is that I will get to see the Predators play the Red Wings (SUCK!) in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The bad news is that I bought lower bowl tickets, which are like $60-$65 apiece. That was supposed to be my silver lining when they didn't make the playoffs. Oh, well, it would be nice to see those guys at least win a game in the series.
What will be interesting to see is how pro-Red Wing (SUCK!) the crowd is, since a big fraction of season ticket holders are Red Wing (SUCK!) fans who work at the Saturn plant in Spring Hill, Tenn. Not that this is unusual for the Nashville area. Vanderbilt football tickets are bought by Tennessee, Alabama, and Florida fans; Vanderbilt basketball tickets are bought by Kentucky and (to a lesser extent these days) Arkansas fans. We'll see what happens to the Titans when they suck.
But, I'm super excited for the Predators. YIPPEEE!
