Of Politics, Sports and Sex

OK, so there won't be a LOT on here about sex, but tell the truth, that's most of the reason you entered this site, right? So, I'll slip some things in from time to time just to keep you coming...back.

Just one question - What's a Thrasher?! And what sport do they play?

My buddy Jim sent this to me - I wish I'd thought of it:

The Atlanta Hawks have lost in the Eastern Conference Semifinals in:
2009
1999
1997
1996
1994
1988
1987
1986
1980
1979
1973
1972
1971

I don't think they've ever advanced past that point. That's 13 times in 40 years failing to get to even the Eastern Finals. That's two generations of frustration! The Hawks lost last night to Cleveland by 40 points in the first game of the Conference Semis.

Add in the fact that the Falcons have never won a SB despite being in the league since 1966, the Braves won one lousy WS despite winning 13 or 14 division titles in a row, the Flames and Thrashers have never had even a sniff of the Stanley Cup, and it's no wonder those people follow NASCAR.
