you may have been too busy wondering whether some 17 year old will be spending the next three to four years in athens, gainesville or knoxville, but we actually have a hockey team here in atlanta.

oh, and with the combination of a win and a toronto loss last night, the thrashers have clinched a playoff birth.

when the thrashers take the ice for their playoff series it will the first that phillips arena has ever hosted.


p.s. – as a peremptory strike – yes i know the (rangers/bruins/islanders/red wings/maple leafs) have won (insert number here) stanley cups, and yes i know we southerners don’t know anything about hockey. we don’t care. the thrashers are still going to the playoffs.

    I’m not betting on this but I hope this is the third year in a row that the Stanley Cup champions originate from the Southeastern Conference. It really eats at the canadiens.

    The team practically is Canadian – if they aren’t from Eastern Europe they are from Canada.

    I’m a lifelong Bruins fan that has lived from Augusta, Georgia to Augusta, Maine, and I think it’s awesome that the Thrashers will make the playoffs. I hope they can make it to the finals.
