You know, man, if we ever make it home, I'm going to do so much farking cocaine. I'm gonna throw so many fine catfish. I'll be like, "What time is it? After 5:00? Damn. Time to go throw me some fine catfish."

I like how she wiggled it at the Coyote goalie at the end. Anyway, why the hell are they throwing catfish on the ice?

I like torturing animals too.

I like how the article was gushing over the fact that the wee helpless girl wasn't totes icked out by the slimy fish.

I'll bet she even has more than a couple teeth.

Cute girl

I love all the zaniness in hockey -- I don't know how long ago it was, but I remember watching a video where everybody in the stands had stuffed teddy bears that they threw on the ice. Thousands and thousands of teddy bears! THE HUMANITY!

mr poops. that is teddy bear night, most junior teams do it here (like ncaa to nba) before christmas, to give a toy to children whose parents can't afford them.

they are normally thrown on the after after the home teams first goal, really cool to watch, but really slows down the game to pick up 10k teddy bears

Of course I'm not looking to see if the fish is alive. Why would the fish be alive after being scooped up by a predator? Duh.

Ok...csb version it is.

The tradition started back in 2003 if memory serves. The city, or its art commission, or somebody or another decided to put these sculptures of catfish all over town. 51 of them, iirc. It was called "Catfish out Of Water"

http://staugustine.com/stories/062203/com_1620640.shtml

http://nashville.about.com/cs/nashvillephotos/l/blcatfishpics.htm

Now..there's always been a bit of a "thing" with the Preds and Wings. Part of it is simply due to the fact that, for as long as there's been a Predators franchise anyway, the Wings have been the class of the division. Part of it is due to Nashville having become something of a "Detroit South" with Saturn/GM, Nissan, VW, and so on all having some sort of presence down here. Lots and lots of Detroit transplants now call Nashville home, and of course welcomed the chance to see the Wings a few times a year.

As Wings fans are want to do, they brought their Octopus tradition with them.

So...in 2003, a local bar owner was complaining after a Wings/Preds game about the bleeping octopus throwing bleepity bleeps, and said "We need something to counter that!". Most of us shrugged it off as just another rant.

Well..sure enough...next Wings game, here he comes over to a few tables of regulars sitting around having a bite to eat and a few drinks before the game (myself included) and says "I'm doin it guys! I've got it!"

He opens this trash bag up, and in the bottom of this thing is a ginormous blue catfish. The thing weighed 15 pounds if it weighed an ounce.

The conversation went something like:

"Uh...wtf?"

"Our tradition! Catfish!"

"Uh/...wtf?"

"When the boys score, instead of all those stupid octopus, we throw a catfish on the ice, like all the statues around town, get it?!?"

"Uh...wtf?"

"It'll be awesome!"

And off he went.

Lo and behold...that night, first goal...there this SOB is down by the glass, hurling this mass of ichthian slime out onto the ice. It was surreal...the whole arena kind of got quiet for a moment, wonder what the heck had just happened...and after about 5 seconds, the half the fans in blue just went NUTS.

The following year, that bar owner leased the area upstairs in the arena tower, as an "in-arena" place to hang out (Those of you in in Nashville now know EXACTLY who I'm talking about) and started offering catfish to customers.

See...if you got caught, you'd be escorted to the door...but you could STILL GET INTO HIS BAR from the entry way. :)

So...he bought the fish, you...er..I mean..um...people threw them, and if you...er...these people...got caught, he provided you...er, them...with free beer and big screen viewing of the game for the rest of the night. Or, so I'm told anyway. :)

Anyway...the tradition stuck, and the new ownership group has embraced it. Nissan jokes about it in their ads now, the catfish is featured in the pre-game laser show, the works. Obviously, everyone points out that it's illegal, and you shouldn't do it, yadda yadda yadda.

You see how well that works. :)

I know one of the Preds Girls. Or at least she used to be. She still might be, I dunno, I don't really keep up with the hockey scene here. She was supposed to get her waitress job back at the bar where I first met her but I've seen her maybe once in the past three months, so maybe she's doing both.

The point is, I know a hot girl. Honest.

Part of the catfish legend also involves Chelios calling the Preds "bottom feeders".

Disagree, the Link has more information about the entire practice of hockey and object throwing (love the Shark with an octopus in its mouth), but BC's had a more interesting narrative and local touch.
