The Boys Are Back In Town

Well, some of them are. I headed up to Duluth this morning and checked out some preseason skate action. Thrashers on the ice: Moose, Oystrick, Enstrom, Bogosian, Kane, White, Little, Boulton, Thorburn, Antropov, Grant Lewis, and Mahachek. Non-Thrashers Chris "Baby Dan" Kamal was there as well as pseudo/former Thrasher Erik Perrin. Actually Perrin wasn't on the ice when I got there, but it appeared he had been previously.

It was soooo good to see the guys playing. I was excited to see Antropov for the first time. He's a big boy. He left the ice kind of early and one of his teammates, not sure who it was yelled a more obscene version of the word "sissy" at him. Chuckles all around.

I didn't get many pictures, I just enjoyed watching. Maybe I'll get more next time.

Grant Lewis

A little action in front of Baby Dan. Toby is doing his DAMNEDEST to blog a shot.

Oh Moose. How I've missed you. This is my first Moose sighting of the season. Can we discuss that new mask? For those that don't know, it's a Sponge Bob Moose. What could be on the other side? Well duh, Patrick Moose of course *shudder* I'm hoping it's a preseason mask he had done for his girls. The mask is gorgeous and well done (as usual), but just not very "fierce." I mean Songe Bob Moose Pants doesn't strike fear in the hearts of opponents as it should. How about a vampire Moose? Vamps are hot right now. A super hero Moose. Military Moose.

Convos, oh how I've missed them.
Baby Dan: Ah, we have 2 fans here
Moose: Yeah, that's my girl. Not sure why she's here on a weekday.
Baby Dan: She was here every day for prospect camp.
Oystrick: I heard she got laid off.
Moose: Damn, that sucks. I hope she can still come to the games, she makes great signs.
Baby Dan: She'll be at training camp every day.
Moose: Shit.
Oystrick: I heard she didn't like your mask.
Moose: Shut up.

Oystrick, Bogo and Boultsie chilling out after a little 4-on-4.

Awww, the babies are talking, how cute. What could Bogo and Kane be talking about?
Kane: So how is playing in Atlanta.
Bogo: It's good. The city is fun and the fans rock.
Kane: What about that chick? She's kind of cute, but creepy. She was at training camp every day.
Bogo: Nah, she's cool. She just takes a bunch of pictures. She makes pretty cool signs, too.
Kane: Cool.

There were other reasons I was at the ice rink in Duluth. As soon as "the powers that be" say it's okay, I'll have some fun photo treats for the blog.

I love the convos... and the idea of a vampire moose mask.

Thanks Kristen! I entertain myself to no end with the convos.

As for the mask, it would need to be Blade or "30 Days of Night" type vampire. No sparkling allowed.
