The NHL’s Nashville Predators picked up their 10th straight home playoff win last night with a 2-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks, giving them a 2-1 lead in the NHL Conference Finals. But that’s not the story here...
Former Oregon Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota and his Tennessee Titans offensive line decided to enjoy a night out on the town together, and took in the game from some of the best seats in the house.
Before the game began, the NBCSN camera caught Mariota pumping the crowd up while his linemen, including former West Virginia left tackle Quinton Spain, crushed Bud Light tallboys in the background.

And it only got crazier from there. Spain got so hyped for the game that his inner J.R. Smith began to shine through, and the shirt came off.

Spain signed with the Titans after he went undrafted in the 2015 NFL Draft, but quickly found his role in the Tennessee offense when he was named the starting left guard before the 2016 season.
If anything, this just backs up my theory that you can take the man out of Morgantown, but you can’t take Morgantown out of the man.
