TRH GAMEDAY 22 – NASHVILLE PREDATORS: SMASHVILLE

Greeting Kings fans! Jesse Cohen from All The Kings Men here!

Last season I took a trip to Nashville to see the Kings play the Predators. It’s an amazing city and I fell deeply in love. I took a ton of photos but I thought I’d share just a few that highlight how different it is to see a hockey game in Nashville as compared to L.A.

So without further adieu….   Smashville, Tennessee.

IMG_0017You can call it “Bridgestone Arena” all you want…  to me it will always be the Gaylord Entertainment Center.

IMG_0090I love STAPLES Center but they don’t have a Waffle Stop. Advantage : Smashville.

IMG_0101Even the Phoenix Coyotes 2012 Pacific Division Championship banner thinks this is sad.

IMG_0116Nothing says hockey like live music and waffles.

IMG_0110Hayusuc is on the World Cup of Hockey team of assorted European nations.

IMG_0120Just….    no.

IMG_0103Turns out “leaners” aren’t just a problem at STAPLES Center.

IMG_0094The BEST reason to see a Kings game in Nashville!

Well there you have it Kings fans.  A brief glimpse into my one trip to Nashville!

I also had the opportunity to talk to Jim Fox about the Kings 2014-2015 season on the All The Kings Men podcast and you can listen to the brand-new episode below or subscribe on iTunes.*
