Paging Dr. Gnash. Dr. Gnash, thousands of fans need to see you.

After the Nashville Predators scored a thrilling 1-0 victory against the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 1 of their Stanley Cup Playoffs series on Thursday their mascot Gnash was all set to get fans out of their obligations for Friday morning.

The note template "From the desk of Dr. Gnash" simply explained that the person in question needed to be excused for his or her tardiness after rooting the Predators to a win. Symptoms included loss of voice, exhaustion, extreme elation and "inablity to focus on anything other than Predators hockey."

Gnash's medical credentials are suspect at best, but, hey, anything to help out fired up Predators fans can't hurt.
