He did not slice his finger throwing a catfish at a Nashville Predators game.
He cut it on a large can of beer.
Lewan attended Game 6 of the Western Conference Final with several Titans teammates, including Quinton Spain and Ben Jones, because literally everyone with a modicum of fame is attending Predators playoff games from country music to pro wresting to the NFL.
During the game, he partook in two of the great traditions at Predators games. The first was slamming tall boys while rocking the Nashville gold. Here’s what it looked like when they did it at Game 3:

So there you go. Not the catfish. Just the beer can.
Is anyone else absolutely smitten that Nashville has gotten this far, and thus is a fountain for weird-ass playoff stories like this?
