Well, it was a fine Thrashers weekend, was it not? You can't help but be thrilled with the Thrashers' play these last four games, and even better: we here at the Chronicle have a good feeling that they'll keep this up. So hooray!
About the attendance, which some can't stop talking about in the most depressing feces-flinging way: perhaps I'm succumbing to myopia, but I thought Friday's crowd rocked. Large, loud, and impressive. Sunday's a different story, of course, what with all the silly things people spend their time on on Sundays. Needless to say, the seats will fill as the Thrash continue to win. Friday's game is a sign of things to come, I think. Reminded me of 06-07.
And who knows? Maybe the Thrashers should abolish the absentee corporate seating thing that makes our lower bowl look so empty.
Another thing that will happen as the Thrashers continue to win, and is in fact already happening, right this minute, as you stare into the Internet, is that questions we all had going into this season are going to be answered.
Because we went into this season with a few questions marks. Not nearly as many as we did in the year previous (Erik Christensen? Jason Williams?), but there were still question marks.
Did Moose have anything left to offer? The Chronicle said yes.
Would Mad, Meticulous Max Afinogenov be a good addition? We said yes.
