#Webering, meet, ‘You guys wanna play ping pong, bring your own table’

Given the blather and silliness of last week’s #Webering craze, well…This is plain old weird, but the Production Line’s Michael Petrella took note of an exchange Todd Bertuzzi (ironically enough) had with the Nashville Predators’ players after Tuesday’s practice, as confirmed by MLive’s Ansar Khan and the NHL Network’s Dave Strader:

From Red Wings TV producer @Will_Posthumus:Today, Predators players were using the ping pong tables in the hallway outside of the locker rooms. Todd Bertuzzi saw this and then… — Will Posthumus (@Will_Posthumus) April 17, 2012

…told them if they wanted to play they needed their own table, then folded up the table, and rolled it into the Wings locker room. #boom — Will Posthumus (@Will_Posthumus) April 17, 2012

Awesome Unabomber. Taking little brother’s lunch money, just because he can.

Technically speaking, the ping pong tables are very close to the Red Wings’ locker room’s player/media entrance, so the Predators were definitely impinging upon “Detroit territory.”

I like it, I remember in the 90’s when the visitors locker room would often get a fresh coat of (noxious) paint hours before the visiting team would show up, for each and every round.

Maybe the Wings should just slam their skulls into the glass at $2500 a pop instead.

That’s two times this week the evil one has stepped up for the team. Now score some goals, Bert.

I’d be laughing if the Wings didn’t lose.

Man, the Predators sure are taking every opportunity to make themselves look more and more like childish assholes.
