Monday, February 25: Tonight, we decided to plunk down some solid cash again and get our favorite Nashville Predator seats down on the glass behind the visitors' penalty box (we've sat here two other times and loved it). Our friend, Mike, was in town and had never sat on the glass, so we figured that was as good an excuse as any. Well, we couldn't have picked a better game to sit where we did. There was lots of action and scoring, lots of penalties for Dallas giving us a chance to razz the players sitting in front of us. A couple of them were once again willing to read our signs for them: "Never heard of you???" and "ESPN is reporting you just got traded!" and acknowledge us with a smile and a laugh. There was a huge glove-dropping fight in the 3rd period, and finally, and best of all, the Preds had a dramatic comeback and overtime win of 5-4. We had a pre-game dinner up in The Suite Spot up in the Patron Platinum Level of the Bridgestone Arena (access granted by our fancy tickets) which serves high-end concessions (the Buffalo chicken mac-n-cheese and the spicy southwestern meatballs were excellent). Thanks to our good friend, Wayne, for coming with us again as well.
A pretty darn fun February if we do say so ourselves!
