Atlanta Spirit Group Expected To Comment On Thrashers' Winnipeg Move Tuesday Afternoon

Oh, this will be one to treasure. WXIA's Randy Waters reports representatives from the Atlanta Thrashers are expected to make an announcement this afternoon regarding the team's almost-certain relocation to Winnipeg. If the Atlanta Spirit Group were to devise the most Atlanta Spirit Group comment on the matter, what would it look like?

I'd imagine three or four scoops of "We gave it our best shot," the slightest trace of a dig at the team's fanbase, and some sort of expression of sympathy, along with an insistence that they're all really big hockey fans, immediately followed by a six-year lawsuit over which ASG member is the biggest hockey fan.

Great news, Atlanta Hawks fans, you have their undivided attention now!
