Alright, the catfish thing in Nashville is fucking stupid

Nashville

For the past several seasons fans of the Nashville Predators have taken to throwing catfish on the ice, something that isn’t foreign to hockey, especially in the NHL. I mean we have the famed octopus chucking in Detroit, the rats in Florida and hats for hockey in general when a player scores three goals in a game.

But what those traditions have that the catfish thing in Nashville doesn’t is tradition in and of itself.

You see, the only reason why throwing catfish on the ice became a thing is not because it represents some old Stanley Cup requisite or a connection with an iconic player within the organization. The reason why Predators fans throw the catfish is because Red Wings fans throw octopus and they needed a counter.

Oh, and apparently catfish is a southern thing. Which means I guess you can also throw grits or some collared greens out on the ice and achieve the same message.
