Visiting Fans In Cowboy Hats

In Smashville, we love our visiting fans. They come to town for a couple of days, stay at our hotels, buy tickets to the hockey games, eat at our restaurants, and shop at one of our fine western wear stores.


And then we make fun of them, because in a desperate attempt to fit in, they stick out like a sore thumb.

Returning October 9, 2014

…assuming we have any friends from eastern Ontario who may have stopped at Boot Barn on their way into Smashville.

Oh, hi there, and welcome to Smashville. The season is officially underway. #VFICH

Well, well, well… Look what I found! Good to be back (on an occasional basis).

Still no NHL Hockey (thanks a lot, idiot owners and idiot players), but the VFICHs are showing up everywhere! Here’s one at today’s Vandy game!

SKATE OF THE UNION

There may be a lockout looming (let’s hope not!), but that didn’t keep Preds fans–and one cowboy hat–from filing into Bridgestone Arena on Monday night.

Welcome to 2012-13, Predators fans.

OH HAL NO!
Former Predators F Steve Sullivan still makes his home in Nashville, and one of the first things he did after returning from Pittsburgh last week was visit the Iroquois Steeplechase with Predators D Hal Gill…who decided to show up to the event in a cowboy hat.
Clearly, we need to educate Skillsy on the proper hat-wearing procedures here in the Music City. We’ll give him a pass this time, because he’s still new here… and also because he’s a giant man and could probably kick my ass very easily.
