Taco time in Tennessee
When the Predators scored for the fourth time during Tuesday's victory over Edmonton, it prompted a familiar chant from Sommet Center fans anxious for one more goal: "We want ta-cos! We want ta-cos!"I'd been planning to head to Nashville for a game this season, but with my passport in transit, that's not going to happen until next year. I imagine NHL hockey in Tennessee is a blast.
The Taco Bell promotion, which gives fans a free taco if the Predators score at least five goals, has been a very popular and prominent part of Nashville's home games over the years.
But it was missing for the first half of this season.
Taco Bell management, dissatisfied with the way it had been treated under the franchise's previous ownership, cut ties last summer.
This story focuses on some of the positive business developments with the franchise since new ownership took over, including the fact there have been a few sellouts and the Taco Bell nights are back.
It's certainly going to be an uphill climb for David Freeman and company, and this might be the Preds last chance in Nashville, but it's good to see someone putting in the hard work to try and make the team work.
