Oh man. This has to suck.
The Preds have a solid fanbase full of loyal fans, and from all over! Like this girl, Sydney, from Pennsylvania, who loves the Flyers and the Preds. She flew all the way from her homestate to attend the Preds vs. New Jersey Devils game on Thursday, the 25th. The only problem was, the game was in flippin’ New Jersey. Not in Nashville.
She told FOX Sports:
“I planned this about a week in advance. All I did is look up the Predators schedule and see what teams they were playing. I saw the day before my birthday they were playing the Devils. I thought, ‘Oh cool, I’ll go to Nashville and catch a game’. I’m trying to go to every NHL arena, so I figured I’m finally going to get Bridgestone [Arena] off the list. I then found out the game was in Newark, which is like two hours away from where I live, driving. Instead, I flew two hours away from home to watch an away game.”
I feel for her. It could’ve happened to anyone!! Simple mistake, and I hope she can laugh it off and at least enjoy the town while she’s here.
Plus, the Preds hooked her up with a huge selection of merchandise for the trouble. And that’s why I love this team!
