Well, it's been an embarrassing weekend for our favorite sporting team. No need for us to recite the specific horrors of this evening's gagging-on-truck-nuts loss to the Carolina Hurricanes (a shutout, even, at the hands of onetime prospective Thrasher Manny Legace).
It's still not impossible for the Thrashers to make the playoffs, especially because Montreal and Boston and the like aren't very good. But surely it wouldn't be a violent shock if they didn't.
Attentive readers of this blog will know that our position post-Kovalchuk has always been, "Well, um, YES it would be awesome if the Thrashers made the playoffs, and it looks like they can, but don't get your hopes too far up, dude." I'm bummed that the Thrashers have played badly these last two games, but I can't say I'm ultra-bummed. Because I'm not that surprised.
Got to take these comical sporting failures in stride.
