I’ll never forget when I walked into Bridgestone for the first time and saw the rink.
I arrived extra early because I had never been to a hockey game before. I wanted to get some pictures before the arena was full.
The ice was nice and shiny. I looked up into the rafters and saw the American and Canadian flags, the NHL team banners, and the large Predators head that is lowered into the arena. The players skate through it when they first take the ice.
I had no idea what I was about to witness, but from that point on, I knew that I would be a lifelong fan.
