With the Nashville Predators on the verge of punching their ticket to their first Stanley Cup Final in franchise history, fans are understandably running wild with enthusiasm for the hockey team right about now. The team just returned from Anaheim to a raucous crowd at the airport and the arena figures to be booming for a potential conference championship clincher in Game 6. So don’t let me stop on your fun right about now, but this has to be stopped at all costs.
As is customary for fans of teams making historic runs to championship rounds, a pair of Predators fans have put together one of the most painful hype videos to make the rounds in quite some time.
Watch at your own risk.

OK, maybe this isn’t the worst effort we have seen through the years when it comes to ridiculous hype videos, but this one is clearly in a solid first place for worst hype video of 2017. And that’s not just me suggesting this atrocity should be wiped from the internet. Even Predators fans are suggesting it.
@NHLonNBCSports As a Preds fan, I do not condone this.

@NHLonNBCSports For a very short time the Preds and their fans weren't terrible. And then this

You would like to think we have come a long away from the days of the Super Bowl Shuffle, but in reality, we have not.
