Mayors Make Deal On Predators, Canucks Playoff Series
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Predators are in the second-round of playoff games taking on the Vancouver Canucks.
The first game of the series is Thursday night in Vancouver. The Mayors of the two cities raised the stakes a little bit.
Nashville Mayor Karl Dean said if the Canucks win the best out of seven games, he'll help Vancouver celebrate by sending a country ham and CD's representing the broad spectrum of Nashville's music scene to Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson.
If Nashville wins, we will be on the receiving end of a Fraser River Sockeye Salmon along with a CD of Vancouver's musicians.
Mayor Dean released a statement saying:
"The Canucks are clearly a good team, but the Predators have been on quite a winning streak lately. We also have the support of the most enthusiastic fans in the NHL here in Nashville - the atmosphere in Bridgestone Arena on game night is unmatched. So we start this next playoff series optimistic and excited."
