Thrashers vs Panthers: The Circus Sucks Edition

Thanks to the circus, the Thrashers had been out of town for about 12 days. Not only does the circus rob me of hockey to watch, it robs animals of their health, sanity and dignity. It’s not the 1800s. Find a new form of family fun that doesn’t involve elephants wearing tutus. At least in zoos the animals have some sort of habitat and aren’t dragged around the country in freight cars to perform humiliating tasks for kicks of people. That’s just the performing aspect of it! Behind the scenes animals are beaten, abused and killed all for the sake of money. I hate the circus. Remember last year when the circus was in town? One of their zebras got loose and was running on the downtown connector. It was kind of funny until you heard what happened to the zebra, they euthanized him. The poor things hooves were so damaged, they had to put him down. BASTARDS! Circuses are no fun for animals!



I usually am not a fan of PETA. I think they are a bit extreme on a lot of issues. but they have some good information if you are interested. And, for the record, yes I’m a hypocrite. I do eat meat. Guess everyone has to have some cause, lol. I’ll eat them, but not watch them ride tricycles. If you’d like to check out some issues with the circus, you can go to the following link. Okay, off of the soap box!

Okay, on to the hockey! The Thrashers were coming home after being away due to the damn circus. The Florida Panthers were in town to kick off this 5 game home stand. Also in town were our new guys, Blake Wheeler and Mark Stuart. We acquired these guys in a trade with Boston in which we sent them Rich Peverley and my beloved Slovakian, Boris Valabik.


Our new Dman, #5 Mark Stuart, brother of one of my favorite former Thrashers, Collin Stuart. Also pictured is #26, Blake Wheeler. Of course I had a sign welcoming them to Blueland.



Toby checking out my sign.



Boys will be boys.



Pavs chatting with Step.



Wheeler wondering what he's gotten himself into.



Hainsey clears the net.



It's Mardi Gras! Boulton tosses over some pucks.



Stuie 2 looks a good bit like his brother.



I took this picture right after Buff had elbowed the glass. Mini fan doesn't look impressed.



Swarming the goalie.



Action in front of Pavs.



Toby trying to keep Bernier from causing problems for us.



There were a few good anti-spirit signs at the game.



Unfortunately for Pavs, he tweaked his wrist in the first period and Chris Mason had to come in for relief.



Mason gets a drink.



Our old friend, Marty Reasoner in the middle of the scrum. Unfortunately Marty scored on us.



Baby Cup Guy rallies the fans.



Byfuglien hustles for the puck.



Another game NOT won in regulation. OT did no good either and we went to a shoot out. A shoot out against Tomas Vokoun. Awesome. As you can see from these fans reactions, we did not win.


Mason actually played pretty good in the shoot out, but when you have Vokoun on the other end, you have to be better than pretty good. Another loss in Blueland.

It totally did. I didn't have the picture at work when I posted this. I wanted to show what it looked like during warm ups. It looked cracked.
