What? Thrashers highlights!

I am not a hockey fan.  I don’t dislike hockey, and actually really enjoyed going to college hockey games when I was in Michigan.  However, I haven’t been to a Thrashers game in a few years.  I’ve had fun when I do go, but frankly, I just forget the team exists.

So I was catching up on my Google Reader items, and found this lovely video.  At first I thought, “hey, cool, this guy gets knocked out.”  Then I realized, “hey, the guy doing the knocking out is a Thrasher.”  Turns out it is the Thrashers’ first round draft pick Evander Kane.  Turns out it is also the first Thrashers highlight I’ve seen all year.

h/t goes to Raiford, who shared with this advice: “Why you don’t pick a fight with someone named after Evander Holyfield.”  That about sums it up.

    Man, hockey is awesome, thanks for reminding me. This was the Thrasher’s last game of the season, right?

    Also, just wanted to point out that the guy that gets knocked out here sounds like kind of a dirty player, which makes the highlight just a little bit better. “His hits have been considered reckless due to the number of injuries they have caused, and also due to the fact that many of them have been hits to the head.” http://bleacherreport.com/articles/376725-penguins-matt-cooke-knocked-out-by-thrashers-evander-kane-karma
