My Plan Is Working Perfectly!

I have Watched, listened to, or otherwise paid close attention to 7 Nashville Predators games this season. I have missed, sometimes to the point of not even knowing a game was happening, 7 Predators games this season.

The Predators record so far this season. 7 wins, 7 miserable losses. Guess which 7 games were the ones I paid attention to.


In the post from October 30th, I said "I need to miss a few predators games." So I did. I paid absolutely no attention to the sports page for a whole week. In that week, they played (though I was unaware of it at the time) against the Vancouver Canucks, the Edmonton Oilers, and the Chicago Blackhawks.

And the beat them all (each by a 3-point margin!), scoring 3, 4, and 5 points in those games, respectively!

Yes, friends... I am proving I am a true Nashville Predators fan by not watching, listening to, or even checking on the score of, a single one of their games.

That being said, I am going to attempt to watch, or otherwise monitor, the their match against the Detroit Red Wings tomorrow evening. I am not sure if I will be able to watch it or not, but those of you who will be watching that game (both of you) will probably be able to tell if I am.

Aha... I just figured out how to get around my jinx! I will be watching the game, but I will be rooting against the Preds! That way I can continue my streak of perpetual disappointment, but Nashville's team won't have to suffer for it.

Not that I'm superstitious or anything, 'cuz that's just silly.

Let's (don't) Go, Predators!

You can find it in your soul to root for the Red Wings??

(Shuns you.)

I missed the Detroit game because it's on this "NHL Network" channel I don't get.
And we ended up coming back to tie it (and lose in shootout)
But we got a point out of it. More than I predicted.
