required reading for winter sports

okay, with baseball season over (at least for braves fans, and even for cubs fans like me – apologies bti) i thought i might take the opportunity to remind you that we also happen to have a professional hockey and basketball team in this town.

some good reading for those of you interested in following more closely the hawks and the thrashers are these two blogs, both writen by amateur, local fans who cover both teams with a tremendous passion.

for the thrashers, check out do the thrashers have large talons. not only does the author have an amazing passion for thrashers hockey, he digs into the statistics of hockey with a mind that would make bill james proud.

and for the hawks, check out atlanta hawks blog. author matt is back after a summer hiatus and does a great job of covering the ups and downs of the team. and let’s be honest, there really aren’t that many blogs about the hawks.

don’t forget both seth and myself have pledged to get on the hawks bandwagon, so point your browser that way and join us….

    At least the cubs and yanks are gone. now if someone can just beat the sox…..anyway go hawks and thrashers! Glad to see some Atlanta teams getting some love. How about also pledging to take the train to every game you attend. Buy an extra beer with the money you save on parking.

    Walking to the Thrashers game tonight! I plan on spending that extra 8 bucks saved from parking on a big beer in CNN center before the game.
