Gnash and Nash Update
If you're wondering why Predators mascot Gnash has been confined to a wheelchair all season, he suffered a broken leg during offseason training and won't be at full capacity for six to eight weeks. Gnash (actually the guy in the furry suit) has been the team's mascot for 10 years now and refuses to sit home and rest. On the opposite end of the spectrum is Lakers guard Steve Nash, who declared himself out for the season before the first game was played.
Bad Idea Jeans
Jets receiver Eric Decker went on Twitter and asked fans why they love the Jets. This, predictably, didn't go well. My favorite response came from @mrjack8, who said, "because normally drinking heavily at 1pm on a Sunday would make me feel like an alcoholic." Decker's wife (Jesse James) came to his defense and Decker wins because he's married to Jesse James.
