The Nashville Predators have a playoff tradition like no other.  They bring in a car painted with their opponent’s logo and let fans beat the crap out of it for charity.

For their series against the Winnipeg Jets, the Predators decided to mix it up a little bit.  They rought in a smash plane instead of a car painted with the Jets logo.  

You have to hand it to the Predators for their creativity on this one.  The smashing begins Friday when the series kicks off in Nashville.

What could be better than smashing a plane and helping out a charity?  If you’re a Predators fan maybe a win, but this is a close second.
