Off covering golf

My apologies friends, but you may have noticed I am covering the Tour Championship at East Lake this week for the paper. That would account for my lack of blogging.

I’m afraid the closest I have come to the Thrashers this week is walking 18 holes with fan Stewart Cink on Thursday.

While I’m away, I have left the blogging to Rawhide – who does a terrific job. We share a number of text messages.  Colleague Ken Sugiura has been filling in on the game coverage and has done a very nice job.

After Sunday’s final round of the Tour Championship, I will be back at it. I’m trying to keep up with everything from here.

Please hang in there. I will be back soon. I appreciate the understanding.

Not professional, little if any info from this guy, nothing on the Thrashers for a week now and no notice of him not being here to report on the team… Very Weak.

LAC: Did you not read the blog?
Back from cover the third round of the Tour Championship. Posted a story quite a while ago on the cuts made today. Paul Postma was sent to Chicago. He won’t be there long. That guy should be a Thrasher soon. Maybe a year in Chicago. Maybe less.

Y’all should lay off Chris. I’ll be pretty frank here and say I miss Craig writing for the Thrashers but damn, take into account the state of the newspaper business lately. We are DAMN lucky to have anyone writing anything about hockey in Atlanta at all and should continue to feel that way until the Thrashers get consistently better.

So the combination is… one, two, three, four, five? That’s the stupidest combination I’ve ever heard in my life! The kind of thing an idiot would have on his luggage!
