The Best Fans in the NHL

The most surprising thing in the NHL Playoffs so far this year has got to be the fans in Nashville. When most hockey fans think of which team has the best fans, everyone automatically knows it’s the Montreal Canadians, and the last place you would think to have great fans is Nashville… I mean WAS Nashville. Their fans ROCK and it has nothing to do with music.

Nashville in the NHL

The Nashville Predators are the big surprise of the Playoffs this year. They have upset Corey Perry and the Anaheim Ducks quite convincingly and now they’re giving the #1 Vancouver Canucks a run for their money. Before these games, there was a lot of concern whether or not Nashville should even have a team in the NHL. I mean… who cares about hockey in Nashville?

Predator Pandemonium

Since the Preds have been winning in NHL Playoffs, there is some serious hockey pandemonium in Nashville:

  • Hundreds of Predator Fans showed up at the Nashville airport to greet the team ONLY after tying the series with Vancouver 1-1.



  • The Nashville fans have created a Sea of Orange in their arena by all wearing ugly orange t-shirts. This is pretty hard to pull off considering most hockey fans like to show off their jersey and Predator Jerseys are blue and white.
  • If you watched the first Nashville home game between the Nucks and Preds, you would have heard the commentators say that there was a crazy collegiate-like atmosphere in the stands.
  • While the game was going on… Nashville Fans were extremely positive. Even though the Canucks dominated the Predators, the fans were constantly cheering on plays most stadiums don’t get so excited about.

Rinne's Run for Radness

Pekka is the New KingPekka is the New King

One of the big reasons that there is this hype in Nashville has got to be because of their star goalie Pekka Rinne. This goaltender literally stole a game from Vancouver while standing on his head.

Canucks' Secret Weapon

The Canucks have their own fan phenomenon. The Green Guys showed up in Nashville to put a jinx on the Predators' push. These Green Guys are probably more popular than some of the 4th line Canucks. Nucks win 3-2 in overtime!

Nashville Noob

OK Nashville is still new to hockey compared to everywhere else... and sometimes there are some rookie mistakes. Some Predator fans have complained about this incident where Predator bulldozes right over a cameraman a jinx on the game. Check it out...

Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.

Well I'm in 6th grade this year and next year in seventh grade I'm going to try out for cheerleading... The problem is I cant do a cartwheel or any of that! So I have to cram all of this stuff into just one year, all help is appreciated.
