Video: Shea Weber channels his inner Michael Jordan/Larry Bird

Dec 13, 2011, 1:09 PM EDT

You all remember the commercial from back in the day that had Larry Bird and Michael Jordan playing a game of HORSE and doing trick shots all over the arena to win a Big Mac. Nashville’s Shea Weber (along with country singer Dierks Bentley) decided to try it out himself taking a shot on an open net from the upper reaches of Bridgestone Arena.

As you might expect, the Predators captain is pretty good at firing the puck. Weber launched it from the 300 level, the length of the ice, off Terry Crisp’s microphone (OK not really)… Nothing but net.

Someone get this guy a commercial deal already.

    Pffft. The only reason he had such a clear shot is that Ryan Miller already got knocked out of the way.

    Nah, that actually was pretty impressive. I’m not sure if I could get the puck down to the glass, let alone onto the ice, let alone into the far net!

    Ha, Miller is probably off sniveling somewhere.

    I think he meant to kiss it off the post and in. What a show off.
