The piece calls the Preds “the best franchise in sports,” too, and again, I agree wholeheartedly. I’d assume anyone who’s been to a Preds game, been in downtown Nashville before/during/after one or even watched a home game on TV can agree — it’s not just that we have a great team playing great hockey, it’s that every part of the Preds experience, from ticket purchases with a personal touch to world-class intermission performances, is designed to give more to the fans.
Any small-business owner will tell you that over-delivering is a winning approach. But it’s not common practice for sports franchises. That we get 110 percent from every part of the Predators machine — most notably from the players — is a big part of why Preds fans are so dedicated.
While I’m focused on Predators fandom, I was doing some stuff-shopping, and thought I’d share a few interesting/unusual Preds purchasables that I liked. We all have plenty of shirts/hats… but who's working NHL-official blue and gold toenails?

For your Nashville home bar to be complete, proper glassware for important occasions is key.
I’m not saying I’d necessarily recommend leaving this out if you’re staging your Nashville home to sell it, but hey, an 8x10 Preds rug in your living room is a pretty large profession of fandom, both figuratively and literally.

"TJ was awesome! We bought and sold a house with him during the first half of 2012. He was thorough, patient and helpful. Plus he did it all with a sense of humor which we appreciated. He was great in showing us all of our options and get feedback so that he could then show us just the few gems that truly fit our needs. In the end, he found our current house 5 minutes after it went on the market. I'm positive that another realtor would have missed that, but not TJ.I would highly recommend him to anyone!"
