The “out there” dish

Green bean casserole is quirky. It’s different. It’s underrated. No matter how many green bean casseroles I try, they always vary from cook to cook, and even then, each cook may find it hard to reproduce the dish the way they did the year before. It’s different. The thing is, no matter how it’s made, what’s added to it, or any and all of it’s nuances, it’s an underrated dish that’s always welcome on my plate, and always produces.

Viktor Arvidsson is our green bean casserole. His style of play is unique, and he’s often the jokester on the team, but he always produces, and we need him on the team, because when healthy he’s such an important piece to our offense. He’s often underestimated, but in spite of that, he’s still so good. Say what you want about his quirks, but would the team be the same without him? During the stretch where he was injured, it clearly was not. Say what you want, but your plate needs green bean casserole, for all its uniqueness and quirks, and the Predators need Arvi for the same.
