Ahhh yes...the playoffs...every hockey fans favorite time of year. Where 16 teams are given that chance to win the sports ultimate prize, The Stanley Cup.
Round one has the Predators traveling to Detroit to face the President Trophy winning Red Wings. The Preds typically play the Wings tough and should provide more than enough for the Wings. Instead of doing my typical breakdown of the matchup and making my bold prediction (Preds win it in 6...you didn't think I would actually not post a prediction did you? And seriously...I am Pred fan and it is my duty to believe and I do!) I would go another direction.
Yesterday while perusing the web and reading Red Wing Blogs I found that many were disrespectful to Nashville and Predator fans. We were called rednecks and bubbas and some even thought it funny to put up funny pictures of 'life in the south.' I thought I would return the favor today...so here are a few of my favs.
Let the games begin...Go Preds!

Some of Detroit's finest...I think they call this dancing
