Just what Fort Wayne needs, $1 beers and hot dogs added to the already healthy eating and drinking regiment.

Dear Randy Brown,
Along with $1 beer and hot dogs can we please get scratch off ticket lottery and slot machines installed in the bathrooms?

Well, all of my neighbors.


Denise Austin is hot.


We (wife and kids) might be interested in going to the game in Bloomington on the 23rd. We have been to Flint and K-Zoo this year and would like to go to Bloomington. Were all going to the Red Wings game on Feb 1st then over to K-zoo for the Saturday night tilt on the 2nd.


Bloomington's arena (U.S. Cellular Coliseum located on the corner of Front St. and Madison St.) has a "family section" (Sec. 115) and a restaurant (The Corn Palace) which overlooks the ice.


komet games definitly do not need $1 beer nights. all the idiots would start fighting one another. after getting a few beers in them, a lot of our so called fans forget the decoram of hockey rules, like entering and leaving their seats only at a stoppage of play, like not standing up and blocking the people behind them and having potty mouths with women and children sitting next to them. please, no dollar nights here! what we do need tho is a parking pass! for a fee we could get unlimited parking,. betwe,en the komets, wizzads, mad ants, ipfw and all the shows and flea markets and graduations, parking sure takes a lot out of my beer budget during the year!!!


A couple more things about the Bloomington game. I payed absolutely nothing to park. It was even in a parking garage 1 block away. Pretty nice. I also like their scoreboard. Granted it was on the wall vs hung from the ceiling but I liked what they did with it and how they used it. They had the "fan cam". They went around the arena and showed close up's of fans throughout the game. They also had the "kiss cam" (I think you can figure that one out). It was really a lot of fun. It would be nice to see the MC do this with their new scoreboad their supposed to be getting as well. My wish list continues...
