Jerseys Off Our Backs
I just got a call from the Thrashers.

They told me I've been selected for the Jerseys Off Our Backs promo on Sunday. There will be at least one Chicken member down there this year representin'. :-)


(Of course, it's also possible that season ticket sales were so low this year, they were able get us all in...)

You suck.

Do you also get minority ownership of the team?

Ask for the suit jacket off one of the owners backs, and as they are taking it off cold**** the ****** on the bridge of his nose.

We got to choose at random, but only our position in the line.

I drew Number 11. Since they handed out in numerical order, I *should* have gotten Anthony Stewart, but thanks to the Fan of the Year taking Kane's jersey, thatbumped me back to #23 instead of #22.

Yep, that's right boys and girls - a game-not-worn Jim Slater jersey.

In spite of the fact that I actually like "Don't Touch Jimmy", I still would have spit on it and thrown it on the ice.

I didn't think to ask him how close he was to getting back on the ice. I just kind of assumed he'd be ready to go for next season. I told him I was looking forward to good things next season with him back in the line-up, to which his response was basically, "Let's hope so."

He actually traded spots in line for it, too. He originally drew Pavelic (which given the increased volume for goalie chest padding might have fit him better). He traded spots with the guy in line behind him so he could get Buff's sweater, while the other guy got Pav's.




Since it was "Jerseys off our backs", I was seriously considering asking if I could pick one of the Ice Girls, instead.

yeah, he sent his son out there to actually get it. nice move!
I also know the folks (not the same people) who "won" Buff's St. Paddy's jersey. holy crap they paid a boatload for it!
