Actually Nashville is a very nice city. I've been there more than a few times. If you're looking for the capital* of Hickville....ever been to West Virginia? I have. The family trees there look like Charlie Brown's Christmas tree. They don't fork. I had to drive through WV to get to Illinois to bury my grandmother a couple years ago, and there were some places we went through that looked like the set of Deliverance.

Nah! I use to live in Nashville, its a DUMP! Trust me, it makes Flint look good. They just sweeten in up when big events come around. Really the only city in Tennessee that is worth a s*** is Chattanooga. Plenty to do there and its nice and clean and thats a far cry from what Nashville can offer.

I've been to Chattanooga - very nice place. We drove up there a couple times to go to the aquarium. Also, we always used to stop at a Waffle House right outside of town to get breakfast when driving back up to Illinois.

I've never been to Memphis, though I'd like to eventually.

They don't travel with their own table? Amateurs.

Were they using Trotz's head as the ball?

Nice work Bert. Now go take the series back tomorrow.

1. This is hilarious.

2. Anyone else bothered by the fact that the Wings are acting more rattled than they should be? Nashville has seemed relatively calm (with the exception of Radulov) even when they lost, but the Wings are just looking aggravated.

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


I think the point of it was "Hey. f*** Freak you."

And for that I like him even more.

I have nightmares about the late shift wait staff from that waffle house.

i don't see a thing wrong with the preds using the red wings ping pong table,it was siting in between of the red wings locker room and the visitors locker room,if the red wings did not want the preds to use the table than they should of put it away,so nobody would think it was siting there for anybody to use.

Glad I'm not the only one who picked up on this. The word that kept coming to mind during the game yesterday: nerves. As in: nervous.

Example: their ridiculously hard passes in the o-zone. Initially I had thought it might've been an issue with the ice surface, but the more they did it, the more it looked like "virgin tension," as I like to call it.

Don't Toews me, bro!

That's all Bert was doing, he was picking up after the guys. They must have left it out there on accident when they were done with it.

Yep. They sure do. They have their own plane after all. They can haul whatever they want in it.

Who looks aggravated? Everything Ive seen is on the contrary, the wings look calm and focused.

Bert took it away because Weber hadn't folded down both halves (one side was still vertical) and was reenacting Game 1 using the Zetterberg plush figurine.

Yeah, I don't think I saw anyone rattled, outside of players getting pretty irritated by what was an obvious inconsistency in what penalties were being called. The one player that looked to be causing problems because of losing his cool was Franzen. He's taken several stupid retaliatory penalties, including that boneheaded spear.
