Predators Fans Remember Dark Days When Team Was Hunted By Arnold Schwarzenegger

Editor’s Note: The following was written by Harold Leeder, editor-in-chief of The New Circle Circular, Lexington’s #1 source of fake news you can’t count on.

In a geography lesson to us all, the Nashville Predators were able to win the NHL Western Conference finals. The Predators topped a Gordon Bombay-less Anaheim Ducks team on their way to the Stanley Cup Finals. After the win, NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly awarded the Campbell Bowl to the Predators, which inexplicably contained no soup.

As the team prepares for their first appearance in the Stanley Cup Finals and many new fans jump on the Nashville bandwagon many long-term fans are taking time to reflect on how far the team has come. The long-time Nashville Predators fan, Steve DaCanadian, remembers back before any sort of success, when the team was going through their toughest time, being hunted by future governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jesse Ventura.

“They used to come out to the games, by helicopter, just covered in mud. They thought it would keep ‘the preds’ from being able to see them or something,” DaCanadian told us. “It was just a weird time. As a fan, I can tell you I’m glad they started playing the games at Bridgestone Arena instead of that jungle.”

Many new fans have really gotten behind the team and are looking forward to the finals. One fan showed his excitement about the team but warned other new fans not to get too far ahead of themselves, “This series will be the toughest matchup for the predators since they took on the aliens back in 04 and 07.”

    Awesome. Hit it out of the park.

    Even though it is a satire piece, I’m loving the expanded hockey coverage on the site and radio. As a life long hockey fan, it’s so great to be able to have people to talk hockey with. I’m a Pens fan, but have casually pulled for the Preds over the years since our two teams never play. I’m happy for them and that fanbase. They deserve it. (Though if my Pens get to the finals, I’ll be vehemently pulling against the Preds.)
