Carrie Underwood Suggests She Needs a Twitter Break After Heated Hockey Tweets
Carrie Underwood is vocal about her passion for the Nashville Predators, and rightfully so — the superstar's husband, Mike Fisher, is captain of the team. But she'll be the first to admit she sometimes lets passion get the best of her.
The Predators are in the 2017 NHL Stanley Cup Final, and they played Game 2 against the Pittsburgh Penguins Wednesday night (May 31) in Pittsburgh. The Penguins won 4-1, and Underwood was there, blasting a series of tweets from her seat:
"Just told my manager that she might have to lock me out of my own Twitter!" she writes along with the hashtags #PredsPride #IJustLoveMyHusband and several zipped mouth and heart emojis.
The Nashville Predators clearly disagree, replying to Underwood's tweet on their official account, saying, "You keep being you, Carrie!! #StandWithUs." The country superstar has been showing off her pride for the Preds loud and proud as they championed their way through the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs and into the Final.
The "Church Bells" singer faced backlash earlier in the series when her team played the Anaheim Ducks and she tweeted, “Woah, what’s with all the empty seats in Anaheim tonight?! Wouldn’t happen in #Smashville that’s for sure!!” which elicited angry replies from Ducks fans. But she hasn't let the smack talk get in the way of her Predators pride, sharing countless videos and social media posts in support of the team.
The Nashville Predators take the ice at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday (June 3) for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Penguins. Alan Jackson has announced that he will perform a free street show before the game to support and celebrate the team.
