Really. No sitting around for hours watching the teevee to hear that your team has just acquired Erik Christensen. Thank heavens I didn't blow off actual human work for this momentous day.
So in the last month or so the Thrashers have collected the likes of Niclas Bergfors, Johnny Oduya, Evgeny Artyukin, and Clarke MacArthur. Even though none of us can be sure who our forwards are and who plays with who (seriously: without looking at some NHL depth charts site, do you know what the Thrashers' lines are?), they've been playing pretty well lately (this is TRUE, did you realize it?!). Apparently Waddell and Dudley think this is the crew we're gonna make the playoffs with. Excuse me, I meant "They think this is the crew with which we're gonna make the playoffs." And then, presumably, triumph in the playoffs.
Will it happen? I'd be a charlatan to say I knew. But we are just 1 point out of a playoff spot, so I look forward to this late-season flight to the moon. We might hit an asteroid or a space orca on the way and blow up, but at least we have a chance of making it. Hooray for the moon (playoffs)! I hear it's just like Arkansas.
This one goes out to Messieurs Waddell and Dudley. Take it away, Frank!
