LINCOLN FINANCIAL MEDIA Sports WQXI-A (790 THE ZONE)/ATLANTA is holding a "wake" TODAY (6/3) for the ATLANTA THRASHERS as the hockey team, pending formal league approval, moves to WINNIPEG.
The ceremony, held at STATS ATLANTA, will include a free buffet for fans showing up in THRASHERS gear and a collection of THRASHERS clothing to be donated to GOODWILL. TIM ECCLESTONE, who played for the city's former NHL franchise, the ATLANTA (now CALGARY) FLAMES, will be on hand to speak with fans and offer condolences.
