Subban Celebrates with a Sword as Titans 12th Man

Videos: Preds Defenseman has a Blast as Titans' Honorary Captain

P.K. Subban doesn't often shy away from the spotlight, and Sunday afternoon at Nissan Stadium was no different. 

Invited to be the Tennessee Titans 12th man, the Nashville Predators defenseman walked the football team's sideline, drove a sword into the ground and generally did his part to unite the two professional sports franchises. 

"They asked me to get the crowd going, and that's your job as the 12th Titan," Subban, who sprayed himself with water and twirled his shirt over his head during the pregame ceremony, said. "You have to get everybody emotionally ready for the start of the game, and I felt I did that. 

"I think it's really important for the two teams to work together to make the city a better place. We're in this city together, and we both have the same goal, and that's to bring a championship back for our respective teams. I think together we can accomplish a lot for this city. This is a sports town, where they love their football and they love their hockey, so why not work together?"

Look for a feature on the day's happenings written by Subban himself tomorrow, but in the meantime, take in some of the top social moments from Subban's afternoon in the NFL.
