Re: Instant Gratification "I WANT RESULTS NOW!" Crowd
I was as dejected as anybody about the loss Saturday night. It was a game that belonged to us; we gave it away because of a few silly mistakes.
But the Thrashers are a million times better than they were last season. Like several folks have already pointed out here at the Chronicle (in the comments section as well as in posts; see Andrew and the Falconer in particular), Anderson's system will give us a walloping record once the boys get his system down pat. It's a lot like rehearsing a play...all hockey fans have been in plays, right?
You stumble over your lines in the early rehearsals; hell, you don't even KNOW your lines. You don't know your lines until a few weeks in, and you're still eons away from cobbling together a decent performance. If you pay attention to detail and actually give a damn, though, the thing comes together. Give it time.
