From the Organization that Can’t Do Anything Right™ — the people that brought you hits like “Erik Christensen: First Line Center,” “Vowing to Make the Playoffs With an Unbelievably Bad Team,” and “Alienating Every Star or Potential Star” — comes another terrible decision.
This time, it’s a new third jersey and, like the Thrashers themselves, it stinks on ice.
Yeesh. I understand season ticket renewals are in the crapper in Hotlanta, but to pretend you’re a basketball team just to put asses in the seats is low-rent.
(And don’t expect the crowd in the background to get much bigger than that once the season starts.)
Compare those jerseys to that of the Atlanta Hawks from a few years ago:
Pretty hard to believe no one saw this ripoff similarity and said, “Yeah, maybe we stay away from this.” It’s not like people go to Hawks games either.
And no, you’re not counting wrong, that’s four assistant captains. But the fun doesn’t stop there, because Mathieu Schneider is an assistant captain too! The Thrashers have said they’re naming a captain “soon” but, uhh, you guys host Washington on Friday, sooooooo…
Shovel this load of crap on their continuously growing pile with their inability to sign the only person on their team worth showing up for (the erstwhile Mr. Kovalchuk) and ability to make their phenom goaltending prospect demand a trade by promising him things and not backing them up, and you’ve got a top-flight organization.
At least Lil Jon shows up to games! Get T-Pain or Lil Wayne and maybe hip hop fans will care.
