Sorry, that’s so cheesy. It’s official, the Atlanta Thrashers are moving to Winnipeg [link]. This is the second time an NHL team will leave Atlanta for Canada – but they’re really broken up this time. They’re not getting back together. Unless they do.
The only way this really affects us is that Chuck and I don’t know anyone in Winnipeg. Well, except Jonathan Toews’ mom and after we stay there all summer, boating on the lake and having derp face contests, we feel a little needy asking to come back in the winter. But we will.
Gratuitous picture of BU alum:
Now, what do you call the Winnipeg team? Dust off the Jets? I can’t think of another instance where that’s happened, as usually relocated teams take their names with or start fresh in their new digs. If they’re getting a new name, what would you call them?Tags: Atlanta Thrashers, Boston University, winnpeg jets
