The Battle for Mediocrity...Thrashers vs Senators

What happens when you get two of the shittiest teams in the NHL together? Someone has to win, although if it were possible to figure out a way for neither to win, I think these two teams would do it. Battles between shitty teams can be good games, kind of like backing up a wounded animal into a corner.

We started off really good! We scored first. Then they caught up. We scored again. Then they tied it. They scored again and we lose. Great.

On to the pictures.

Welcome to the Bobo Show a/k/a warm ups!

I try not to be SOO obvious and take and post 500 pictures of Boris, but I can't help it. In the back you can see stupid Spezza who almost had a hat trick.

Back off honey (blond in the background), he's mine. Stop your learing, that's my job. I'm a cougar, I'll cut ya.

Sorry, couldn't resist

Obligatory Moose shot.
Someone else has noticed that I take tons of pics of Boris lately.
Moose: Is she still taking pictures of Boris?
Thorton: Yes
Moose: Damn it!
Thorton: What are you worried about, she still takes tons of pictures of you and still rocks the Manitoba Moose Jersey even though she has to explain it to the stupid ass Atlanta fans dozens of times.
Moose: Yes, that's true. Good point.
Thorton: I did hear that she was looking at a Valabik jersey though.
Moose: LIAR!!

Jim Slater on puck duty.

At the other end of the ice, our most hated ex-Thrasher, Dany Heately.

Welcome Rich Peverly! This was Rich's first game as a Thrasher. I of course made him a "Welcome" sign and I'm sure he loved it. He played on Ilya's line, not a bad way to start. He didn't score, but everyone including Ilya, agreed that he looked pretty good. He's a fast skater, puts himself in good position and shoots if he gets the chance, what else can you ask for?
Rich wore number 37 in Nashville, but couldn't wear it here. If you need to know why, ask Dany Heatley (that was fucking evil...straight to hell). So he wears 47.

Look who else is back, baby Bogo! Zach Bogosian our first round draft pic (3rd over all) returned from a conditioning stint with the Chicago Wolves after returning from a broken leg. He scored his first professional goal there. I thought he looked much better on the ice than before. He didn't look as awkward and seemed more confident.
If you want to read the most adorable thing in the world, check out the Blue Land Blog where Zach made some guest entries while injured. You can read about his new car, how he makes Bogo fries, likes icecream and plays video games. It's so stinking adorable.
I made him a welcome back Zach sign and mentioned how much I loved the blog posts. I'm sure he was delighted.

YES! Finally, Kaptain Kovalchuk. The C looks good on him. Too bad the couldn't win his first game as captain.

I've decided that I want to try and take my pictures in a new direction...actually have them be interesting! Face off shots are great, but I want action. I know I don't have the skill or equipment or usually the seats to get great shots, but I want to improve what I can get.
I'm very excited about this shot. This is one of the happy moments of the game, one of our goals! If you look in the net at the upper left hand side, you can see the puck.

Kari making a save (actual photo evidence that he can do so)

I like this one because you can see the ice fly up from the ref's skate

More action in our zone (boo)

Boris and Neil started barking and I was hoping for a fight. They kept giving each other the look and bumping, but no go.

Bobo did lose his mind later in the game though. Went nuts on someone.

More action

Our starting goalie, Kari Lehtonen hosing his eyes down. He does this a lot. He should look into lasik.

LOL! Love the cougar comment. Chicky wouldn't know what hit her.

I have been taking action shots at our games, some are good, some not so good. Yours are looking pretty good!
