For the next couple of weeks, it looks like Lil Jon will be taking a break from the recording studio to watch the NHL Playoffs. Yes, that’s right. Apparently, Lil Jon is a huge hockey fan and even a bigger fan of the Atlanta Thrashers. He’s such a huge fan that he is now blogging for the NHL during the entire playoffs.
“I’ve been a hockey fan a long time,” Jon wrote on his blog. “I used to go watch the Atlanta Flames play back in the day when I was a little kid. I actually have one of the Atlanta Flames’ old jerseys because I bought the throwback. Then I got re-introduced to the game because my son plays hockey and I wanted to get him to a real game. So we started going to the Thrashers games. The first Thrashers game I went to they got into a shootout. That was amazing, and they won, and I was like dope! That really made me fall all the way in love with it. That first game they won, and they even used to call us a good luck charm, my son and I, because whenever we were in-house they won. We’ve been going so often that now I’m in cool with the players and the owner, and they’ve welcomed us into their household. We love to go to the games to have fun and support the team.”
Jon has made a post since April 9, but you can check out the blog HERE that he shares with other celebs like William Fichtner (Prison Break), Christie Brinkley, and Eddie Cahill (CSI: NY).
