08:24 AM ET 05.19 | Well, it was intriguing while it lasted, which wasn't long in the case of speculation that Lil' Jon had interest in buying into the Thrashers. Here is what he had to say: "I love the Thrashers, but I'm not investing in them. The one good thing about that rumor is that it's stirring up a lot of people talking and saying we gotta keep them here, it brings awareness to it. But I'm not investing. That's a lot of money to buy a professional hockey team! I'll help them out with some awareness, though."

<I'll help then out with some awareness, though.">


I wonder if he's aware that they may be off to Winnipeg?

Are Lil Jon and Dustin Byfuglien BFFs now?

Is that the only picture the interns have of a Thrasher? Are they trying to make sense of why a rapper would give a crap about hockey?

He loves them does he? Funny, I don't remember seeing any shots of him attending a game. Or music videos with him wearing the gear.

Would the ASG just sell this team to Winnepeg already? Everyone knows that hockey in Atlanta just doesn't work, unless you're in the business of losing your arse.

When questioned later, Robin Hood and Fryer Tuck declined comment.

Its a Zen support. Just like the Islanders get.

My brain must be still numb from the thumping the Canucks handed out last night because I didn't get your post at all. Then I read HC and I thought what the **** is laughing at. Read it again and yeah very funny :-) The Nux sure dismantled the Sharks last night this could be over quick. Go Bolts.

Whoooowhat!!? Oooookkkkkkk!!! That's about all I've got to say about this.

Exactly.

Unless it's clarifying whether this is actual Lil Jon or Dave Chappelle doing Lil Jon.

It took me a second, then I thought, what wise **** comment can I come up with, and boom it hit me. Well done.

Ha, ha. Nice.

Apparently they are planning a rally to save the Thrashers.

Unless its a Monster Truck Rally, I doubt the attendance will even make a blip.

Lil' Jon IS a big fan of the Thrashers, I see him at games all the time...in the seats with the rest of the fans and he also does some scoreboard promos for the team
