Attention, hockey fans
Hey Atlanta hockey fans -- in case you're not aware, there's a great new local hockey blog out there that you'll want to know about. It's called Do the Thrashers Have Large Talons?, and it focuses on the Atlanta Thrashers and other local hockey-related happenings. It's maintained by C&T buddy The Falconer, who is a mainstay on the local hockey scene. He utilizes both qualitative and quantitative elements in his analyses, and has a nice project going on over there.
Though I guess it's technically unaffiliated, The Falconer and Mrs. Falconer are also part of the invaluable Hockey's Future prospects site. Give that a peek too if you're interested in the future of the game.
In conjunction with this hockey-themed post, here are a couple songs from The Zambonis, who pretty much write and sing about nothing but the sport. "Here We Go Again" is a sort of psych-pop/pop-punk tune, while "Greatest Season" is a spur-of-the-moment Johnny Cash tribute that the guys apparently whipped up in a single day.
