Oh Ilya, It's Been Too Long

(updated below, with tonight's roster woooo)

Did you have a good weekend folks? A happy Rosh Hashanah? Isn't Bored to Death the greatest show on television already?

It's time for the Thrashers to get down to serious business.

The roster is getting thinner, the coach is growing more confident, and Atlantans' first sight of pre-season hockey happens...tonight?


The Thrashers line-up for tonight's game against the Carolina Hurricanes hasn't been announced, but we do know 1) that Kovalchuk, Antropov, and Kubina will be playing, and 2) the Canes roster is Rod Brind'Amour, Sergei Samsonov, and some other non-Staals.

Could be our first chance to see Manny Legace and Maxim Afinogenov as Thrashers. A sexy time should be had by all. And that calls for a song like this. This one goes out to Ilya Kovalchuk and possibly his agent too. You know what I'm talking about.

UPDATE: Thrashers line-up over at the Blueland Blog. We get to see the Kovalchuk-Antropov-Little line in action, as well as Kozlov-White-Peverley. In fact, we get to see our entire team minus Bogosian. No Afinogenov. Starting goalie will be either Legace or Heberg, depending on something or other.

Bored to Death seriously ruled. I mean it was damn near perfect. I don't I've ever been so excited about a show maybe ever. Also the whole show they were playing excerpts by Young Marble Giants.

I loved that he signed himself in at the sleazy hotel as "Philip Marlowe." Like you say, damn near perfect.

I love when he finds the dude that kidnapped the lady, and he asks the kidnapper what he is smoking and he says meth, and jason schwartzman is like ah man don't do that, it's all chemicals, have some marajuana it's all natural.
