The Nashville Predators had an awesome intro for their 8-3 Monday night loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

Prior to the game starting, the Predators had military members rope down from the rafters to get the festivities kicked off. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

You can watch a GIF of the awesome moment below.

Whenever you can get the military involved in a sporting event, you just have to do it. You can’t pass it up.

For example, there’s a reason jet flyovers in football are so damn cool. There’s nothing like being in a football stadium as jets roar through the sky.

While this might not have been as cool as a great flyover, it’s still pretty damn sweet to watch military members rope down from the rafters.

That’s something you just don’t see every day at a sporting event, and I’m here for it. Again, anything that combines sports and the military is a badass combination that we have to support.

The Predators might not have gotten the win, but I think it’s safe to say they won our hearts with this intro.
