Last Tuesday night was Meet the Team night with the Nashville Predators at the Sommet Center. Thanks to the Mayes family we were able to go to the cool event! At the beginning of the season, the Predators open the arena to all their season ticket holders and all the players are there to meet the fans and sign autographs. My boys were super excited! Jackson wanted to wear his jersey, which meant Drew also wanted to wear a jersey. Luckily, Jackson's Gnash jersey was not too big for Drew. The lines were crazy for certain players. Thanks to our Disney line swap skills, we were able to see the majority of the players and keep the boys entertained. Drew really wanted to see Gnash, however we kept missing him.
Jackson got to meet Patric Hornqvist and Ryan Jones first. Jerrod Smithson and Martin Erat were so nice to Jackson. All the players were extremely kind and talkative to the boys. They were all impressed that Jackson recognized them and knew their numbers (without any prompting from Andy or me).
Jackson also meet the team captain, Jason Arnott. He has a life size poster of him on the back of his bedroom door that he got at a game last year.
