He had a baseball bat and I was tied to a chair, pissing him off was the smart thing to do…

Nelson is laughing at you, Nashville.It’s always wise to be careful what you say. Words typed today may be laughed at two weeks from now for their naiveté. What you may think is a sure thing may blow up in your face. This is what some people call “Famous Last Words”. Today, we add a new batch to the list: “The Nashville Predators have been sold”. The Kansas City Star, among others, are reporting that the deal that was in place to buy the team may fall through, unless Tennessee voters vote in city officials that agree to finance the changes in the stadium’s current lease. That amount, depending on who you listen to, is between three and five million dollars. Without this measure, the team, which was regarded as sold and the deal done…will be back on the market.

Note to Gary Bettman: HA HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So now what? The deal is on the rocks, it’s up to the voters of Tennessee to approve what amounts to a tax hike to keep the team in town, and the ownership group, which two weeks ago looked like saviors, are already calling up Kansas City to see if they want to pick up some slack. You have to feel bad for the two or three Predators fans out there. This entire summer has been a cock tease, like that hot stripper that hints if you give her another twenty bucks, she may jerk you off….but you have to pay up to find out. The owners are going to vote on the sale on September 18th, and the voters are voting in municipal elections in Nashville on September 11th. I can only imagine that the issue of whether or not to ship out a couple million in city money to save the hockey team would be a bit of a deal breaker for a couple thousand voters out there.

MYFO will sell their endorsement to the highest bidder in all local electionsSo, MYFO is throwing down the gauntlet. If any candidates in Nashville want to come out in favor of saving the Predators, e-mail me at DoctorMilhouse@gmail.com and I’ll make sure your message gets out to the masses. I’m sure we have at least 5 people a week visit from Tennessee. If those five people tell five friends, and they tell five friends, and some, and some…it could be the key to you winning a cushy City Board job! Every vote counts!

But until then, someone call Balsillie. Make sure Hamilton is still available.

  1. Can we just move this team to Hamitucky and get this over with?

  2. It’s the NHL. What could possib-lie go wrong?

  3. That stripper didn’t just hint I would get a hand job for another 20, she actually said so. But she lied. Can you believe that?

    Just fold the team already and put everyone out of their misery. Dispersal draft! We call Jason Arnott.

  4. Bring back the Whale.

  5. Oh, and the Sabres draft Shea Weber.

  6. Good call Afino.

    I was going to say Dumont, but I was just getting sentimental.

    You think we can get some of those Jordin Tootoo whistles on clearance?

  7. Uh, pretty sure Hamilton is still available. There are only so many truck and tractor pulls they can host at Copps Coliseum.

    The Leafs, of course, choose Martin Erat in the dispersal draft, because you can never have enough third line wingers.
