Three Nashville Icons Teamed up for the Weather Forecast in a Clear Sign That This Friday Is Already a Huge Win
Not going to lie, sometimes being a part of Team GSD (get shit done) can get stressful. I’ve been grinding all week every week for the last three weeks. I was just telling the rest of the SoBros crew that I’ve written 70 posts in the last 17 days while somehow staying on top of things at the day job. It’s been borderline total isolation, and I started to crack yesterday.
I came into the office early today to get ahead of things – get all of today’s posts lined up, do some research into getting our podcast on iTunes because none of us know what we’re doing, line up some potential revenue streams, and starting to put together agendas for next week’s podcasts.
Tired and in dire need of a win, I see WSMV Nashville pop up on my Twitter…

“NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – A meteorologist, a prehistoric cat and a beloved weather-dog handled the forecast together today. Teamwork!”(4/14/17)
First of all, I love that they had to get Dagny in check. That is Dagny’s spot, and I don’t care who you are, you respect the crown. That even goes for Nashville’s greatest hype tiger, Gnash.
But, you know, we’re still a bit of a sports blog, and what do we do best (besides drinking games)? We rank things. So, I think this is an appropriate time to bust out some power rankings.
Top three Nashville icons that called the weather this morning
3) Gnash – The face of the Nashville Predators is just an outright electric factory. There’s no denying that, but in this case, he’s in Heggen and Dagny’s zone. Sure, he adds a little humor to it, but for the most part, he’s out of his element.
Remember last year when he teamed up with T-Rac to bust the San Jose Sharks’ asses? My mind was nearly blown. People overlook Nashville as a sports city to begin with, but one of the most underrated parts of that is the quality of mascots we have. Gnash and T-Rac are two of the legit greatest mascots in all of professional sports.
2) Dagny – If this isn’t owning shit, I don’t know what is:
All over Nashville, this pristine creature has become a symbol of optimism and happiness. You know when you see Dagny on your screen, it’s Friday, and it’s time to either party, relax, sleep, or all of the above. When I’m stumbling around in my half-awake stupor in the morning and I see Dagny, it is LIT. This dog gives me a feeling that no cup of coffee can replace and I know I’m not the only one.
1) Paul Heggen – “Get your teeth out and enjoy the sunshine, Nashville!” Seems like a weird thing to say, but in the context of this piece, that’s just the sharp wit of Nashville’s greatest astronomer coming through. I believe astronomer is the appropriate technical term for meteorologist but since we don’t have interns to research these things for us, I’m just going to go with it.
Anyway, no disrespect to anyone in the Nashville media – lot of talent there, but The Heggenator absolutely owns Nashville. Go ahead, @ me. I’ll fight this fight ’til the death. He’s witty. He’s charming. He’s witty. He’s on top of his shit, and he once defeated Clay Travis in an internet battle. Clay is one of my earliest influences in writing and was the first guy to cut me a pay check for writing, so that was a bit like seeing my sensei defeated in battle. Immediate respect to Master Heggen.
Plus, my God, the man worked a PJ Fleck reference into a WEATHER FORECAST. That is bedazzling, unparalleled skill. Consider us all fans. I’d go to war for that man. I may end up having to go to war because of President Trump bombing the shit out of everyone, and to justify it, I will tell myself I’m going to war for Paul Heggen. That’s how inspirational this man is.
The Preds got a huge 1-0 win on the road in Game 1 of their series against the Chicago Blackhawks. Now, we got the veritable Nashville dream team on screen at the same damn time.
This is the Nashville version of Hulk Hogan, The Rock, and Stone Cold Steve Austin toasting beers and kicking off Wrestlemania XXX. You know it’s going to be a good day now.
