Raw catfish was on the menu in Pittsburgh after the Penguins shut out the Predators in Game 6 to clinch their second straight Stanley Cup title Sunday night.
While the Pens drenched their locker room in champagne over 500 miles away in Nashville, their fans took to the streets in the Steel City. But rather than flipping over cars or setting off fireworks, some crazed fans decided to partake in eating their opponents’ unofficial mascot.
Catfish, Nashville’s strange badge of honor that Preds fans tossed onto the ice throughout the series, became Pittsburgh’s newest delicacy — served raw and bloody as hell on the streets, and in some cases even off the street. Several fish were also launched into the air and over the crowds that filled E. Carson Street.
Pseudo-animal sacrifice in the name of Lord Stanley’s Cup has never run quite so rampant. But the fans know that another year with the silver chalice gives them plenty of time to wash down their special snack.
Seeing is believing….here is a flying catfish. #StanleyCup pic.twitter.com/5QfDISvZRh
