why the hell did we beat your team 8-0
?" Then he just turned around and went back to eating. The Red Wings fan shut-up and everyone was laughing at him. We don't pester people like they do in LA or New York, paparazzi are much fewer an far between here because when they call the neighbors up of the players or stars the neighbors have the common decency to say, "That's none of my business or yours". We stick together in Tennessee, and that's how we like it. Also, thanks for the comment, was great reading that.
2nd best game in Preds history (just behind closing out the 1st round last year against ANA). I missed the game because of work. My wife tried to text me every time we scored, but couldn't keep up because we were scoring so fast. Thankfully, she DVRed the game.
I've always wondered how much professional sports players benefit from the absence of a state income tax. 2% of 2.5 million is 50K. Not a lot, but it's a nice little bonus I suppose.
