Atlanta Thrashers Mascot, Thrash, Is In Jail?!?

New, 1 comment

Thrash has always proven to be the Thrashers’ biggest PR asset, being random and only mildly offensive – but always funny – at games and other events. He’s the public goodwill ambassador of the team at charity events, and now apparently he’s ticked off.

In hopes of trying to get people to come watch the Thrashers play hockey, he stole a Zamboni from the Duluth Ice Forum and planned to drive it 25 miles down the interstate to Philips Arena with a “Buy Tickets, Atlanta” sign taped to the side. Didn’t work, and he’s been arrested by the Gwinnett County Sherriff’s Office.

You know what’d probably help get him out? A sell-out on Thursday or Saturday (preferably Thursday, but more likely Saturday when Ilya Kovalchuk comes back). I think that’s do-able, if not to just free Thrash, but to see what is probably the best Thrashers team in history assembled win a few games.
