The Nashville Predators have been in the league for 20 years now and you would expect the crowd and the media to be very knowledgeable about hockey by now. The fans are definitely into the Preds, as the crazy ambiance in the arena told everyone yesterday, but the media is still lagging behind apparently.
Apparently, a local news station told everyone the Preds were going straight to the Cup finals, when in fact the Conference finals was the next step.
Of course, mistakes happen to everyone, us included. However, this is a very fundamental and basic fact that any sport media HAS to know.
Maybe someone had a tough meeting to attend to this morning following such mistake!
