Titans Lineman Taylor Lewan Used A Catfish As A Beer Luge At A Predators Playoff Game
The Nashville Predators took down the Winnipeg Jets with a 5-4 victory in double overtime at home to even up their second-round playoff series, and even though playing on your own ice doesn’t give you much of a statistical advantage, the crowd played a not-so-minor part in helping their team come out on top after more than 85 minutes worth of hockey.
The Predators organization did everything it could to up the energy before the game at Bridgestone Arena and were helped out by some members of the Tennessee Titans who’d made the trek to see their hometown brethren try to get one step closer to the Stanley Cup. After seeing their pregame ritual, I think it’s safe to say these guys know how to party.
The Titans managed to get a dead catfish— Nashville’s answer to Detroit’s octopus— inside the arena, and when the cameras turned to the group, tackle and insane person Taylor Lewan did the only natural thing to do in that situation: use the catfish as a beer luge before crushing a tallboy.
The official Twitter account that posted the clip cut away before Lewan capped off his routine by letting the Jets know how he really feels about them:
I have to give Lewan a lot of credit: when you managed to outdo a shirtless Quentin Spade who’s swinging a lightsaber and chugging a beer, you know you’ve done something right.
If more Nashville home games means more of this, then I might have to jump on the Predators bandwagon.
