Dead catfish, takes place, are very dangerous objects. Nashville Predators fan Jacob Waddell found that out over his cost after throwing a fish on to the ice in his team’s Stanley Cup final opener in Pittsburgh.
Waddell was performing a tradition among Nashville fans, who regularly throw catfish onto the rink in their team’s home games. There is worked too, with all the Preds reaching their first recorded Stanley Cup final in 2010. Perhaps hoping to head off Waddell’s make of Tennessean voodoo security staff escorted him from the arena and hubby was later faced with disorderly conduct, disrupting a celebration and possessing instruments associated with a crime. At the same time, the harm was over though and the Penguins never register one particular shot on goal in the second period once the catfish had made its appearance. Pittsburgh did eventually rally to win the overall game 5-3.
“I thought ‘Man, wouldn’t it be awesome to arrive at pay a visit to that game?'” Waddell told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “And then, such as ignorant redneck, I thought ‘Wouldn’t it’s awesome to throw a catfish about the ice with this game?'”
