We all know Marcus Mariota for his skills on the football field, but on Tuesday night in Nashville, the former Duck and current Tennessee Titans quarterback traded in the two-tone blue for some navy and yellow at the Nashville Predators playoff game.

Before the Predators took on the Sharks at home for Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Mariota took to the ice and waved a yellow rally towel over his head to fire up the crowd.

As you might expect, Mariota, a native of Hawaii, hasn't been around much snow and ice in his life. As a matter of fact, tonight's Predators game was the first hockey game that Mariota has ever attended in his life.

Watch the video below and check out Mariota firing up the crowd and talking about the experience. If you need me, I'll be searching where I can buy a Mariota Predators jersey.
