Dave Strader (who many of us remember well) is covering the series for NBCSports. He reports that after the morning skate today the Preds were using the ping pong tables outside the dressing rooms to relax. Big Bert stepped out, told them that if they wanted to play ping-pong, they'd have to bring their own table; then he folded the table up and wheeled it into the Wings room. CLASSIC!

I wish this was on tape! Hilarious!

The smirk that Bert must have had on his face while folding up the table must have been priceless.

The Preds playing ping pong were lucky Bert didn't grab their heads and smash them into the table before taking it away.

I don't think he would care about that. I think the point of it was, "don't use our s***." You can play your wiffleball all you want. Posted Image

Figures a Preds clown would bring up some kind of rebuttal. Anyway, Love it Bert. That is absolutley AWESOME. Glad to see this team has some snarl now. Hopefully they watched the Philly/Pittsburgh game yesterday and took notes.

Red Wings germs? Seriously? What are you, 8 years old?

I think the preds are more likely to catch something living in the capitol of hickville than they are if they play ping pong in Detroit.

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".
