In a push for some more original programming highlighting the Atlanta Thrashers, SportSouth is airing Atlanta Thrashers Straight Up after tonight’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes at 8:00. From the press release:â†µ
SportSouth asks how well you know your favorite Atlanta Thrasher in Atlanta Thrashers Straight Up, a 30-minute offbeat question and answer special showcasing a lighter side of several Thrashers players. Atlanta Thrashers Straight Up premieres on SportSouth on Sunday, February 13 at 8 p.m. ET following the Thrashersâ€™ home contest against the Carolina Hurricanes at 5 p.m. ET.â†µ
It’s a bit of feel good fluff after a game that the Thrashers need to win. It’s great that SportSouth is coming up with more original programming to feature the Thrashers. 24/7 it’s not, but it should give fans a glimpse into the personalities of the guys we see on the ice.
