The idea of bringing sunglasses to visit a hockey arena has always seemed like a foolish idea. The Nashville Predators are out to change that notion. The club has painted their ice yellow (they're calling it gold) for the summer. Thanks to some pictures from Meghan Hunter, fan relations coordinator for the Predators, we're given a look at the Bridgestone Arena's bright surface. Thankfully, the yellow ice is temporary. The team will resort back to their traditional look once training camp begins. While it's interesting seeing a new color on the traditionally white surface, there are just far too many pee jokes to make here. Don't eat the yellow ice, children. [follow]

I thought we had all agreed we're going to let the Boise State people have the "unnatural playing surface color" thing. That was going to be their deal. It'll keep them happy for a while until we figure everything else out.
Was that not the arrangement? Because what are you doing, Nashville Predators? Yellow ice? I thought we went over this.
Oh, that's not...

The Nashville Predators made their home jerseys gold a couple of years ago and now it appears they wanted to paint their ice rink gold for the summer. It won’t be like that for the season, but man does it look weird.
Why? Because kids can skate on GOLD ice @ the Open House, because it's SUMMER, because it's awesome & because we can! pic.twitter.com/EHfNrxJ7DG
This isn’t the first time a hockey team has painted ice, teams will do a ‘Pink the Rink’ night to raise awareness for Breast Cancer, but this is the first time we’ve seen such a thing on the NHL level. The Predators have no plans to keep the ice painted for any games, including pre-season, they were simply testing it out.
