I know I'm gonna get the first seat, or is that the last seat? Which one do I want? All I know is it will be hard to push me out of a chair!!! I'm starting to practice my game right now. I have a cardboard cutout of Shaw, Hit, Monkey, Justin, and Scoops set up in chairs right now. (The one of Scoops has been set up all year long since I love him so much!!!) That stick is mine!!!!

Junior

That's GREAT!!

Make sure you post the guys that make it, I'll be laughing my butt off the entire intermission.

Junior

BTW, when are the replaying Sunday's game??

Anyone, anyone....Bueller?

mightbite

Replay=comcast ch.55-wed. 7pm.

Hit Somebody!!!

I hope I am in, I will Hit Somebody!!!

Jerad Shaw

I think I am going to have to sit this one out. It's a disaster waiting to happen for me on ice. Just isn't smart idea. I will ref from the bleachers though!! I will Hawthorne all of you. There will be flow to this musical chairs game!!!

Pixelcraft

After reading this write up of one of the games in the above mentioned Allen Cup games I have to wonder if Jim Hawthorne was refereeing :-)

i want to see an all star ice chips cast out on the ice for musical chairs:

shaw, scoops, hitsomebody, JC, Hoss, Jungle Monkey, chuckitt, heck even mightbite

Hit Somebody!!!

Komet Warrior?

Hit Somebody!!!

Wonder if Super Fan will make an on-ice appearance...Maybe the feature match will be Cohny v. Super Fan. I'd pay money to see that one. Cohn would roll him.

Neat video with highlights of the season.

Justin Cohn

My goodness, there was a reference to Ron Baker "the excitement maker" in that Allan Cup story.

Shawn

They had to play 5 games in 6 days, interesting.

FWKRTJ

I replied, so we'll see...

Just don't have an actual seat number to tell them yet.

Hit Somebody!!!

Super Fan = Blakes. Hope everyone knows that. You know, the blogmaster that decided to only run his blog 2 months a year and claims he is not a fan of the Komets, even though he writes books about the Komets and falls in love with the worst players on the team every year.(Guinn, Kiyaga, Townsend, Jorde, etc.) Colin Chaulk called him out 2 seasons ago and called him....SUPER FAN. I apologize in advance for telling that story.

Andy

When did chaulker call him super fan? I was wondering where that came from. Is there anywhere i can see the interview or anything?

HAHA oh man good ol'chaulker

Hit Somebody!!!

I will find it.

Hit Somebody!!!

I found it, not sure if I am allowed to post the quote here or not....I need guidance from Justin on this one.

Andy

dunna@indiana.edu PLEASE!

Nasty Dangles

Thanks for posting the video Jared...I will be working on another if the Komets win then series then maybe one more if they bring home the cup. Stay Tuned! lol.

Hit Somebody!!!

You can check it out now Andy. Enjoy.

Andy

HAHA thanks Hit, i always thought you and blake had a love hate relationship. ;)

Hit Somebody!!!

It is mostly hate on his part. I am banned from his league for life. He doesn't like open discussion and light-hearted teasing and fun. He mostly likes to type his opinions and everyone goes along with him and sucks up to him.

Justin is the only game in town, in the league, and on the internet. Justin gets it. He puts great efforts into making this the best blog of its kind. It is always thought provoking, interesting, informative, open for debate, and fun. Sometimes people get out of hand and get a little too passionate from time to time, but he allows them to get it out, and is good about cooling them off and allowing them to calm down. He truly does a marvelous job. We all should be grateful and lucky to have such a great guy covering our favorite team and providing us an avenue to pursue and talk about our team...no matter what Scoops might think should or shouldn't be talked about. At least now we know who his daddy is...lol. Only kidding Scoops.

Great Job Justin!!! You the man...MAN!!!

Bob

I signed up for the contest. We'll see if I registered in time or not....sounds like this could be, ehh....interesting.

Nobrainer

Blake only turned his blog back on because he is working on another book and what better way to promote it.

Hoss

Hit and Justin sitting in a tree....

I kid because I love!


That is the best video I have seen about the Komets! I'm sitting here in my boxers getting the "Let's Go Komets!" chant going in my den...pretty pic in your head right now, hun?

Jungle Monkey

My Lucky Charms are coming back up, Hoss.

IcyKometsFan84

Blake only opened his blog cause he couldn't find some ex-komets and wanted everyone else to do his research.

Thank You Justin
I don't know what I would do at work if i didn't have this blog

Jungle Monkey

Look at it this way folks..

The over 55 crowd needs a place to blog in CAPS LOCK. Let Blake cater to them.

IcyKometsFan84

Great story on Hodgeman!! I would love to see him back next year but he sounds persistant on returning to Erie Otters. Hope the Frankes can get him to change his mind...maybe when he sees some of the people he plays with here move up next year he will change his mind

Janice

Woot...I got picked to do the contest...I hope Hoss is nice to me...

Justin Cohn

OK, OK, lay off Blake. Let's talk hockey.

Nasty Dangles

Ron Baker "the excitement maker".

HAHAHAHA! O my god! That has to be the funniest (yet most absurd) thing I have every heard!!!!!!!

RIck

Colin Chaulk got a one game suspension.

Nasty Dangles

1 game...I can live with that.

RIck

I guess they had to give him something; At least it's not 10 games

scoops

Is Chaulk allowed to be behind the bench tomorrow since he is the assistant coach?

Hoss

I can live with the one game, maybe it will give him some time o deal with his stuff. Does he get to coach on the bench, or does the one game cover coaching as well?

BTW Jancie, you are going down at musical chairs!!! It's on bloggers!!!!

Who else do I need to knock out to get the auto stick?

Hoss

I can live with the one game, maybe it will give him some time o deal with his stuff. Does he get to coach on the bench, or does the one game cover coaching as well?

BTW Jancie, you are going down at musical chairs!!! It's on bloggers!!!!

Who else do I need to knock out to get the auto stick?

Hoss

Scoops, that's scary...we are thinking alike!

Hoss

Now why does it double post onetime, but not the next?

Justin Cohn

The Ron Baker "excitement maker" was coined by Dave Benson. Remember him?

FWKRTJ

They picked me too...this should be interesting.

Nasty Dangles

Ahhh yes, Dave Benson, he did an article for the Kevin Bertram Fanclub years back...whatever happened to him?

And why on earth did he consider Ron Baker an excitement maker? I hope that is sarcastic.

Conley

I don't feel he should have gotten any suspension. We were pulled over on the way to musky last Saturday going 12 over. The trooper told us to slow it down. That's all. The league did not have to suspend him.

Nasty Dangles

wow great analogy

Brandon

Conley, Hoss, FWKRTJ, and everyone else are going down! I've been practicing sitting all my life..I've the the size advantage to sneak into the small spaces..BRING ON THE PAIN!

Conley

All I hear is yap yap yap. Since Shaw is out with an acl tear I will just use my special tactics I have been working on all of yall. Man that stick will look nice next to my trash can.

Brandon

I would doubt that Chaulk makes the trip, he has too much going on off the ice right now and is needed more at home then behind the bench...take the trip off and take care of business which I'm sure he will

Grogg

I am in for the musical chairs also. However, beginning to have second thoughts because of the injury factor being greatly increased by any drinks consumed during the game.
