So Long, Farewell, auf Wiedersehen, Good Night

This post is written with apologies to Lugnutdawg.  Lugnut is the biggest Thrashers fan I know. 

When I was a student and we’d go to basketball games (I don’t know if they still do this or not) that day’s Red and Black was over the chair to read while the other team was being introduced.  When David Johnson would announce the starting 5 for the opposing team, the fans whould chant “Dawgfood”, and when he introduced the opposing coach the fans would yell “Who cares?”. 

Well, it appears the Thrashers are leaving Atlatnta.  Who cares?

From my limited knowledge of hockey, I know that the Thrashers were never any good, and the owernship group never put forth an effort to keep the young talent here in town.  It wasn’t an issue of fan support really, but the fan base just by and large is not there.  Atlanta is a college football town, followed by Braves and Falcons (in that order, in my opinion).  Simply put, who cares that a European and Canadian sport is in capitol of Dixie?  And spare me with the embarrassment of losing a professional sports franchise.  To me, it was embarrassing that Atlanta had a NHL team in the first place.  It makes as much sense to have hockey in Atlanta as it does to have NHL franchises in Nashville, San Jose, Phoenix and Tampa Bay.

So, if the Thrashers leave, will anyone besides a few loyal fans and John Kincade really care?  I don’t think so.

    Hockey sucks but my sphincter’s husband loves Futbol. Hockey is for pale people that love it when its dark 20 hours a day.

    There isn’t anyone who likes Professional Hockey.

    No one.

    Anywhere.

    Ever.

    1980 Miracle on Ice was great, but what made that great was that they were not professional hockey players playing for Team USA.

    It is a boring sport to watch professional hockey.

    It is like watching professional soccer games. I think. Theyy do play professional soccer I think. I think I have seen that and hit the channel button so quickly that I frankly am slightly guessing on this.

    I think some sports are just no good professionally. I will forever hold Calgary responsible for taking away our Flames. We actually had good attendance here for that team. As for the lousy horrid owners of the Thrashers and Hawks, the Atlanta Spirit, I wish they would go away with all their in-fighting and acting like they are great. They know nothing about Sports and have these 2 teams they own into the ground. I have no concept how they think 5 forwards makes a basketball team. (Best available draft pick, crap – not what the team needs.) And, the Thrashers ? Who cares.

    I am not sure what you said to get me to blog about professional hockey.
