I think for me it's just the pace of the game itself is much more exciting than football. And I'm not saying I don't like football, I do, but it's just so stop and go. I thought Titans games were actually kind of boring to watch in person as opposed to TV. And Preds games are more of the opposite- better in person than on TV.

100% Agreed, the fast action of Hockey makes it very enjoyable to attend games in person. Football is really a TV-made sport, it is designed around stop-go for TV breaks and such.

going to any preds game is awesome. and since this would be your introduction to hockey, definitely look at going to detroit red wings game. but for a good game to goto over the weekend, in Jan goto the flyers game & in Feb goto the sharks game. those would be great Sat nights in either month

I love football, but i would much rather go to a hockey game. Plus the players are a lot more down to earth than any football/basketball/baseball. I get tired of the egos and scandals in the more mainstream sports.

If you can be downtown the morning of the game there are 100 tickets they sell for $10 when they open at 10 am. Thursdays if your in college you can get a lower bowl ticket for $25 and upper bowl for $15

another reason I go to so many games. It's much cheaper, easier, and more convenient than dealing with Titans games. Hard to pass on a $15 night downtown at a pro sporting event.

At least in a hockey game, I get to see someone bash another guy's face in instead of worrying about the fucking Brady rule. Play the fucking game like it was suppose to be fucking played.

Nope! You can buy your tickets for the college night games here...

www.nashvillepredators.com/jstephenson

Use the promo code "college" and it then emails the tickets directly to you in a pdf. Pretty sweet deal.

Bump! Awesome win last night, really hoping Weber isn't suspended for Friday's game for slamming Zetterbergs head into the glass at the end of the game though

Some BS penalties, especially the ones at the end of the game. Preds sure did suck on the powerplay, at least their goalie knows what he's doing and saved the day.

Thought the same thing, for a team that leads the league in fewest penalties (followed by Detroit), I couldn't believe some of the calls last night. Then I read this on ESPN this morning:

"Commissioner Gary Bettman was in attendance, and that might be why officials stayed busy calling plenty of penalties with six in the first period alone and 17 overall for a combined 34 minutes."

Edit: Looks liek Weber is good to go for game 2!

Meanwhile, Predators defenseman Shea Weber was fined $2,500 by the NHL (the maximum amount allowed under the collective bargaining agreement) on Thursday for a hit to the head of Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg in Game 1.

"We felt this was a reckless and reactionary play on which Weber threw a glancing punch and then shoved Zetterberg's head into the glass," NHL senior vice president of player safety and hockey operations Brendan Shanahan said in a statement. "We reached out to Detroit following the game and were informed that Zetterberg did not suffer an apparent injury and should be in the lineup for Game 2."

Yeah Idk what Webs was thinking...really stupid. Preds nation got very lucky with that one.

But what a win! Game one is huge mentally. Now we just have to pull it off again tomorrow night.
