Pittsburgh Is Basically North Korea: Man Who Threw Catfish On Ice At Game 1 Is Being Charged


Throwing catfish on the ice is a long, storied tradition for Nashville Predators fans that dates all the way back to like, a few years ago. It was essentially started as a parody of Red Wings fans sneaking in octopi to throw on the ice in Detroit. But with the run that the Predators have gone on this year in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the catfish is more than just a joke now.

Anyway, the city of Pittsburgh has gone under strict communist laws this week doing everything they possibly could to prevent people from Nashville purchasing catfish in Pittsburgh fish markets to sneak into Game 1. They went so far as to making people show ID before purchasing catfish so that nobody with a Tennessee license could get their hands on one. But clearly people are no getting Fake ID’s just so they can get catfish in Pittsburgh. Which brings us to this hero from last night.


Getting kicked out of a Stanley Cup Final game for a harmless prank seems a bit excessive. But I understand why the Penguins’ security would probably want to take control of this immediately. But now it looks like Pittsburgh has gone completely off the deep end and are stepping into martial law territory. Now it looks like Pittsburgh has officially become North Korea and have gone full blown dictatorship mode.

Pure insanity. The man throws a dead catfish onto a surface of ice and now he’s going to have a criminal record. Changes are he probably had one heading into last night. But at the very least, it’s getting larger now. Disorderly conduct, disrupting a meeting and possession of an instrument of a crime. What kind of bullshit is that? Am I gonna have to go toe-to-toe in a little bird law with the City of Pittsburgh? Because I’ll do whatever it damn well takes to make sure that Jacob Waddell is a free man. This is an egregious miscarriage of justice and I will not idly stand by as they paint a demonizing portrait of a clearly innocent man.

Not sure if we have the wallets to bring in those lawyers from Making A Murderer but we need all hands on deck here, people.
