What the H-E-double hockey sticks is going on?*
As you've all noticed (RIGHT?), your editor has been absent for more than a week. Where was I? Four hints: wineries, elephant seals, surfers, and a Kings game (the Staples Center is truly excellent, by the way, sort of like Philips Arena if Philips Arena was actually kept up).
It seems the Thrashers have been...winning dramatically? Losing predictably? We can't be sure, but it appears we're now in 12th place, behind the New Jersey Devils and several others.
What does this mean?
*Yes, I know I just said "H-E-double hockey sticks."
UPDATE: Ah, now I see what's going on. The Thrashers had a chance to get back into the playoff race and blew it spectacularly. This is in keeping with our team's many traditions.
