A bunch of football players recently got catfished while at a Nashville Predators playoff hockey game recently. No, this isn't a Manti Te'o piece, these athletes snuck a whole catfish into the Bridgestone Arena and turned it into the wackiest beer bong of 2018.
Tennessee Titans offensive lineman Taylor Lewan was caught on film getting a boozy waterfall through the fish's mouth, while some of his teammates were eating up the action in front of the Nashville crowd. Only guy not 100 percent into it was Lewan's quarterback, Marcus Mariota, who was clearly not ready for that level of partying.
While a catfish beer bong sounds bizarre enough on its own, sea creature alcohol vessels aren't anything new. There were some clueless dumb frat bros who utilized live sea creatures as drinking vessels because they thought animal cruelty was badass. There's even video of a guy going bottoms up on a salmon in 2016.
This catfish seemed to be much larger than your typical salmon, though, making it a bigger spectacle in front of a hyped playoff crowd.
While Lewan succeeded in firing up the people with his catfish beer bong, it may have done more harm than good for the Preds. They ended up losing the game in overtime, and while the catfish distraction may not have been the reason, there's no way you can see that and shake it out of your memory in the span of a couple of hours.
