He's playing tonight. Burmistrov, Antropov, and Fehr are the injured Jets out.

In a restaurant on the lower level of the arena they do serve bison burgers, I believe.

GUYS GUYS GUYS

How has nobody mentioned that The One, The Only Antti Missedthenettigen is suiting up for Thrashy in his first game in his triumphant return to the NHL tonight? Apparently not.


Also, Big Bear wants some honey. It's Gui time.

Oh. Well that explains it.

That's too bad. Would've been a cool storyline.

1. It has its own thread

2. Not a chance Mittens gets cleared to go through customs, get to the arena in time and suit up for tonight.

I hope they bring up Chick Fil-A. It's one of Atlanta's greatest imports although of course there's only 1 in the Twin Cities.

I agree, would have added even more drama to a highly dramatic game.

Can't help but think your avatar would look better if the trailing leg was inside the circle while the leading leg remained out.

They ****ing found the Higgs Boson. That means a lot of scientists in CERN are going to get absolutely, totally ****faced in Swiss absinthe tonight, and they have the keys to a big-ass particle collider with them.

I'm going to sleep, and if I wake up and the world is still there, I will enjoy the game with you. If I don't... well... something was ought to go wrong when Minnesota is #1 in NHL.

Cya in 5 hours... hopefully.

Not quite. They found an anomaly at the energy levels where they hoped to find the Higgs Boson. It may or may not be what they were looking for, and it will take at least another year of research, testing, and data analysis before they have their first quality confirmation either way.

Our experience with opposing fans is that they haven't paid attention to the Wild for like three years and still think that they are a passive, Lemaires-style trapping team. Also they call us "Minny," which is a nickname that we don't actually really use locally. So our "theme" this year has been to do the exact same thing back, blatantly ("omg eddy is so boring, I'm sick of watching mactavish's trap six times a year").

More than that, fans are stuck 3+ years in the past when describing our play, so in this GDT, Gopher has remained in Thrashy's past in describing them.

For the most part it's all been discussing Atlanta like it still exists because that part of history seems to have been whitewashed by some and the Thrasher faithful deserve better. But it is made in a way where there are different interpretations and meanings, which is pretty cool for being a throwaway GDT.

Plus as most people know by now my humor is both really dry and odd.

I think I get it but I'm not sure?

let me give it a second shot........The Boo Birds will rein down on Dany louder than they did on that turncoat Kovalchuk who both turned their backs on us to head off to greener pastures.....we get that the Octotards (ASG) hated us and only wanted to own an NBA team but it stings so much more when the players we once loved stab us in the back!!

We are hating on you Dany you glass breaking, heart breaking, cherry picking, Chick fil a loving, Atlanta hating, diva!! BOOOOOOOOOOO
