In Game

The Predators are one of the best-supported NHL teams in a non-traditional market, which can largely be attributed to the team’s ability to put together a good game day experience. They pull out all the stops to put on a great production and provide an experience that even non-hockey fans will love.

One of the things that make attending a game at Bridgestone Arena an excellent experience is the wide variety of cuisine available at the concession stands. Here you’ll find everything from cheddar cheese dogs to Tex-Mex to pizza to brisket chili nachos. Barbecue and brisket, in particular, is a big part of Tennesee culture so make sure to try some brisket during your trip to Bridgestone Arena.

In addition to the great selection of food available to you, there is also a lively atmosphere at a Predators game. Over the past few years, several traditions have been fostered and developed by the teams and fans including fang fingers and the fans “Standing O.” Join in on all the fun Predators traditions to get the most out of your trip to Nashville.

Finally, the area around Bridgestone Arena goes a long way in making attending a Predators game a special experience. The arena is located right on Broadway, so you’ll be at the heart of all things going on in Nashville.

Fight Songs

  1. I Like, It I Love It

    Predators goal song

    Spent forty-eight dollars
    Last night at the county fair,
    I throwed out my shoulder
    But I won her that teddy bear.
    She’s got me saying
    Sugar-pie, honey, darlin’, and dear,
    I ain’t seen the braves
    Play a game all year.
    I’m gonna get fired,
    If I don’t get some sleep,
    My long lost buddies
    Say I’m gettin’ in to deep.

    But I like it, I love it,
    I want some more of it,
    I try so hard,
    I can’t rise about it.
    Don’t know what it is
    ‘Bout that little gal’s lovin’,
    But I like it, I love it,
    I want some more of it.

    My Mama and Daddy
    Tried to teach me courtesy,
    But it never sank in
    ‘Til that girl got a hold of me.
    Now I’m holding unbrellas
    And openin’ up doors,
    I’m taking out the trash
    And I’m sweepin’ my floors.
    Crossin’ my fingers,
    And countin’ every kiss,
    Prayin’ that it keeps
    Goin’ on like this.

    But I like it, I love it,
    I want some more of it,
    I try so hard,
    I can’t rise about it.
    Don’t know what it is
    ‘Bout that little gal’s lovin’,
    But I like it, I love it,
    I want some more of it.

    Got to wash my truck and dress up
    To pick her up to watch tv.
    And she sits down on the sofa,
    She’ll move a little closer…
    She can’t get enough of me.

    And I like it, I love it,
    I want some more of it,
    I try so hard,
    I can’t rise about it.
    Don’t know what it is
    ‘Bout that little gal’s lovin’,
    But I like it, I love it,
    I want some more of it.

    Come on baby..

    You knoooow what I like…

    Yeah.. I like that…

    MMmmmmm… MMmmmm… MMmmm

    Hey… Don’t forget to turn out the lights…
