Ribbon cutting and opening day at The Ice, featuring Atlanta Thrashers prospects Cormier and Burmistrov

Patrice Cormier, Don Waddell, and a raccoon
We did manage to make it to the opening of the new skating rink in Georgia, The Ice. In attendance were, among others, Don Waddell - president of the Atlanta Thrashers (and SUPER nice guy who talked to us for a bit), and Atlanta Thrashers prospects Patrice Cormier (above) and Alex Burmistrov (below). My daughter scored autographs from both guys, as well as a hug from the Gwinnett Gladiators mascot, Maximus.

Alex Burmistrov, who never looked directly at my camera, plus Dan Kamal and Darren Eliot

So...Patrice is a rather attractive young man, eh? I mean, uh, there's controversy surrounding him. That's totally what should be discussed. Yep. That's it.
