Cynical, negative pessimist that I am, I think the team's gone.
Soooo... anyone interested in a roadtrip to Charlotte to say goodbye to the boys? The Atlantapeg Thrashets play the Carolina Hurricanes on September 25th. Would be fun to have a big group of Thrashers fans there.
I've emailed my Thrashers sales rep about tickets (which he likely won't be able to help me with by the time tix go on sale in July, but it can't hurt).
Any 'Canes fans that frequent this board, if you could help us out, that would be really cool and very much appreciated.
