Atlanta Thrashers: Will the Last One to Leave Please Turn Off the Lights?

Since the beginning of the 2009-10 season, the folks at Philips Arena, in Atlanta, don’t bother turning on the impressive wall of hundreds of Philips television monitors showing sporting events on the way between the upper and lower concourse during Thrashers’ games.

Makes you wonder if management has not already given up on the franchise when it doesn’t even bother turning on a huge display of products from the arena sponsor! It sure conveys that message.

We can just imagine the meeting before the season:

“OK, we’ll unlock the doors and have a few beer stalls for the last few coming to games. Send Larry to the gift shop; maybe we can sell a few Kovalchuk jerseys before the trade deadline.”
To be positive, let’s hope that they just decided to be very green by using less electricity and power for frivolous reasons. But, really? The company that paid big money for the arena’s naming rights would forego a spectacular display of its products to go green?

Will the last one to leave please turn off the lights?
