It's very hard to say where the Thrashers might be headed this season. Other than out to California for a difficult road trip, that is.
Saturday night's game against the Lightning didn't go very well, obviously, but people should take away one overwhelming Good Thing from that game: Craig Ramsay's awesome orange shirt and tie. The man is a sharp dresser, folks, much sharper than John Anderson ever was. I'd even go so far as to say he's the best-dressed coach the Thrashers have ever had.
Friday's home opener was exciting and emotional, but even then I couldn't get too carried away, given our history of home opener victories (many of them blowouts).
What should we expect? Hell if we know.
Oh, and speaking of exciting and emotional: part of your Chronicle was present at yesterday's Braves game. Your TBC editor can honestly say he's never been that ecstatic at a sporting event, nor more dejected. I think I'm traumatized for life. Oh, and Brooks Conrad, the poor man, has become our favorite new metaphor.
ALSO: Your editor really, REALLY enjoyed the blaxploitation/"release the Kraken" video that took the place of "Unleash the Fury" at the home opener. Genius stuff. Really.
