It's almost playoff time for the NHL and fans are getting riled up. A recent game with the Nashville Predators playing the Florida Panthers has the Nashville home base STILL angry after a bad turned over goal cost the Predators a win.
It's "goalie interference," they said. The call was made by a ref watching the game in Toronto, Canada. The guy wasn't even at the game! Even Carrie Underwood was upset.
One Predators fan decided to be the hero we didn't know we needed and shipped a dead catfish to the NHL main office.
Predators fans are notorious for throwing catfish on the ice during playoff games.
From the local Tennessean paper:
Justin Bradford originally reported on his penaltyboxradio.com blog that fan Briley Meeks paid $141.75 to send a dead catfish to the NHL offices in Toronto.
The catfish cost $7.25.
Shipping cost $134.50.
She told The Tennessean that she loves practical jokes. And when someone suggested on the Predators’ fan Facebook page to do it, well, she thought about it. Then did it.
“They (fans on Facebook) were joking,” she texted The Tennessean. “I decided I needed to be that someone. I am a huge practical joke person and I feel like this was the ultimate prank.”
