Thrashers vs the Rangers

Traffic sucks on Fridays. Traffic sucks when it rains. A rainy Friday is murder. I decided to take MARTA to the game. I left nice and early and got to the station and realized...I don't have my ticket. *#(&*@(* I had to turn around and go get it. It was an omen. I should have just stayed home. The only thing that awaited me was dozens and dozens of asshole Ranger fans and crap play on the ice.

I wanted to go down to the Rangers end so I could see the King, but decided instead to get some pictures of the oldest and newest Thrasher, Chris Chelios.

Moose is praying! "Dear God, please let the defense play well. Please let me see the puck. Please don't let Hainsey kick it in our own net. Please don't let the Rangers kick our ass. Thank you, Amen."
Sorry Moose, God apparently hates Blueland.

Smile while you can, Ron. There won't be anything to smile about later.

I see you seeing me, King. I know you are wondering why I'm not on your end, but there were some circumstances I really can't discuss here.

I like this picture because Moose's hair is sticking out.

What up, Cheli?

Our biggest new Thrasher, Evgeny Artyukhin.

Swarm the goalie!

After the National Anthem, they had a video presentation showing some Army soldiers flying a signed Thrashers flag that the team provided along with an American flag over their base in Afghanistan. As a token of appreciation, soldiers presented the Thrashers with their base flag and a plaque in a special ceremony.

American-born alternate captains Ron Hainsey and Zach Bogosian were presented with the flag and plaque. It was very cool and the soldiers got huge applause and a standing ovation.

First period!

King making a save.

Get in there Antro.

Some action in front of Moose.

So you play defense, Oduya?

Well you get an A+ for effort Moose, but it went in.

Another day in Blueland, we end the period down 3-0, including 2 PP goals for the Rangers. Of course that's what happens when you take 3 penalties and get outshot 12 to 8.

Second Period. Great.

Antro trying to block out the sun for the King.

King Henrik bats away the puck.

Woo Hoo! Thrashers score, thanks Mac! (Clarke MacArthur)

The King juggles the puck.

Thrash harassing some Rangers fans.

Things got a little chippy. Boultsie gave Dubinsky some love taps. Then Anisimov and Kubina started having words.

Slater and Calahan were discussing things.

Damn you, King!

Some chaos for Lundqvist.

Making it look SOOO easy! Show off!

IN THE FACE! Moose gets blasted in the mask and it gets knocked right off.

What have I told you guys, not in the face! It's far too handsome of a face to get busted up with a puck. Besides, that's a brand new mask!

Moose tosses the ref the puck.

Then a strange thing battery died. I've had this camera 3 years and it's the first time I've let the batter die. I was lost! I felt naked. I had the camera around my neck for a while, but kept going for it to shoot, so I finally put it away. Fortunately for me, my friend Kerry was using our friend Randy's camera and was nice enough to let me use pictures of his for the third period.


We pretty much stopped watching the game in the third period and started people watching. Thrash was very entertaining, too. There were these 2 douche bags standing up while the puck was in play. They were talking to each other and on the phone as well, being general Phillips douche bags. Thrash came down and made them sit. The entire section cheered.

That section was apparently a real problem because later Thrash came down and dumped pop corn on someone.

Back to the game, score by Hainsey!

Thrashers lose 5-2, imagine that. I know this is another half ass blog post, but after watching that half ass effort...I can't muster much more!
