Curse of the Thrashers

The Curse of the Bambino is probably the most famous curse in sports. However in Atlanta, we have the Curse of the Groin.

It started in 1999 for the Atlanta Thrashers, when their first goalie, Damian Rhodes, had groin injuries all season for the Thrashers. It seems as every goaltender since has had issues, some with groin and some with many various injuries.

Now the Thrashers have a legitimate top-notch goalie in Kari Lehtonen and he has an injured groin and has been placed on the injured reserve list. Great timing Kari, the team is on a hot streak of one in a row.
