Nashville Sports Astronomically Sucking

If you are a fan of the Predators and Titans, and have sat down to watch the Predators' last 6 games (including the playoffs last year) and the Titans' last 8, you have experienced 14 straight losses. The Predators, after taking a game from the San Jose Sharks in last year's Stanley Cup playoffs, could not accomplish anything after that and lost four straight--this year, they've gotten off to an 0-2 start after scoring 11 goals! Where's the defense, folks? Is it underneath the ice?

The Titans, meanwhile, stuck in their "rebuilding" campaign, just can't buy a win. How many here thought the Titans would pull off that upset today against the Colts? I didn't see one down of the game, but I had a handy XM-produced score handy and when I saw 13-7 Titans, the mathematical probability of them losing by 1 point was practically an inevitability.

It's not been fun.

The thing about the Titans though is that they were supposed to suck; no matter what the media tried to spin about the possiblities of a decent season, I know I wasn't buying into it. Granted, I thought they would have one or two wins under there belt right now, but nothing spectatcular. And when was the last time a defense held the Colts to 14 points; they finally did a good job of managing the clock by getting their running game going. Vince Young played a lot better than his numbers showed, and Lindell White looked awesome in the minor role they used him in. I thought there were a lot of positives to take away from the game, but a win would have made it even sweeter. The Predators are definately a dissapointment; however, I think the defense is something they can correct, and the ship can be turned. It's still very early.

It's still very early with the Preds, but they certainly have some issues to work out. I've watched five of the six total periods, and it's been a roller-coaster. Unlike the Sharks series last year, at least they are playing well on offense, so well that I'm still pretty excited about the team. Holding back a player to play defense and avoiding poor accros ice passes is a priority now.

As far as the Titans go, everybody knew that they would have a rough season, and at least yesterday provided a bit of a spark. For the first four games, it seemed not to have a heart, making them unwatchable. I love the plucky underdog, win or lose, and only now with Vince do they fill that role.

Yeah, the Titans are supposed to suck, but my point is very simple. Nashville teams have been doing nothing but losing. I'm sure the Preds will end this futile streak in the near future. For a minute there, I thought it might be the Titans.
