Worship me!!!!!

Hoss

I got three holes in one at Putt-Putt, so worship me more!!!!


Brandon, mind if I ask how much?
JM, you beat me out by less than $25 for Reynolds, you banana-eatin'-fool!!! Oh well, I guess I will have money to pay bills now thatnks to you...

Did anyone else notice that last night at the beginning of the third period that the off-ice officals made a key mistake.... PH had a 5-on-3 and Guy got a penalty at the 36 second mark, but his penatly wasn't supposed to start until one of the ones on the board expired. Well PH scores before this, and not only does the penalty come off that only had a few seconds left, Guy got out of the box. I'm really surprised that PH didn't notice it and freak out about it.

iceboi - PH scored well after Kevin bertrams penalty for for boarding was up.. they scored after Dupuis penalty had started... Berts penalty time ran all the way out..then Dupuis time started. PH scores, and they let Dupuis out, however the 5 min major remained. Everything worked as it should have.

komets123

PH scored 2:16 into 3rd.. Berts penalty was over at the 1:59 mark. Dupuis started at 1:59 mark when Bertrams ran out. .. So when PH scored Dupuis was rightfully let out of the box

Hey Ryne G- how was the ref a wimp last night? He called it correctly and explained it to both benches. All the ref's take to much crap from everyone. That must have "wimp" written all over it.

And Jerad, a knee-to-knee can cause long term damage. Ask Henley about that. You get the award for the dumbest post.

komets123

"You get the award for the dumbest post."

Perhaps this was a touch uncalled for? Just because you disagree with someones opinion doesn't mean you need to attack them.

Brandon

Hoss, rumor has it the Woods jersey went for 825

morency fan

well put komets123...

im so excited to go to fridays game!!!
i didnt get to go to saturdays i herd it was a good game!!
anyone going to kalamazoo on the 17th ?...

Junior

You guys are rich. What kind of shoes do you have?

Jersey's looked great, much better then I thought they would after seeing them on everyones #1 blog.

Brandon

Shoes? I can't afford shoes...

Ryne Gurney

Who needs shoes when you have a game worn camo K's jersey


I didn't say the ref was bad or made a bad call, but there were several times when he could have given out unsportsman likes, and he didn't i was overall happy with the ref otherwise

Hoss

I thought he did a great job giving the unsportsman to the PH player after he started to whine. You could see the ref told him to skate away and he didn't so the ref didn't even wait a second, he gave 4 mins. Very nice to see he didn't put up with all the crap that the likes of Crylander and others try to dish out. (And yes, I am not a true homer and would be willing to put a few Komets names on the list of players who need to stop crying to the ref.)

jonndfi

You called him a wimp- just wondering what made him a wimp? Sounded like you thought he was bad- IHL is full of poor refs= Gallagher, Hawthorne, Graber. Get used to it.

As for the dumbest post award- I quote-"Unless Durdin knee to knee'd a guy, then dropped 3 knee's to his face, then I don't think it applys to the long term damage that it could have caused." Maybe he should look at any sport- football, basketball, hockey and see what a messed up knee does for a player. It wasn't a personal attack! It was just a fact.

GO KOMETS!

Ryne Gurney

once again, i didn't say the ref was bad

Iceboi

Komets123.... I think my brain quit working today. I even checked the stat sheet again before I posted. Then I just now double checked after reading your post and was like... oh yeah. lol. A great weekend though, this team is ROCKING IT OUT. Does anyone else feel that the best is yet to come?

Jerad Shaw

What I was saying is that obviously they both can cause damage, but I've never seen anyone die from blunt force trama to the knee. Could be wrong.

kometfan

well looks like i wont be able to make it to another game till the 22nd.....spring break here for me..heading out to florida....hope the streak continues...go komets

Hoss

WOW! I feel bad for you kometfan. You are going to miss games just to go to Florida!!! Rough life! LOL

jonndfi

Hey Ryne- you said he was a wimp, which indicates that he wasn't doing his job. Reading between the lines. I quote- "Also, the ref wasn't horrible, but he was a wimp, he took crap from everybody." maybe would indicate that he wasn't very good. Every ref takes a certain amount of guff from the teams. Doesn't make them a "wimp".

Bubb Rubb

Kids... Cant we all just get along??

Tom

I and a few others are going to K-zoo on the 17th if the weather is good. We also have room for 1-2 more if anyone wants to go. See you all Friday and Sat.

Bubb Rubb

Sorry Tom, I dont get down like that. You cant fool me that easy!

Hoss

????

komets123

"You get the award for the dumbest post."

then posted...

"It wasn't a personal attack! It was just a fact."

Wrong. By judging it to be the dumbest post you are entering an opinion. Not a fact. Do you understand the difference between the two? fact and opinion? look em up if you dont.

This OPINION can be taken very harshly from the recipient. that is why i referred to it as a "personal attack" . In no way were you being constructive with that statement. It appeared as though you were only trying to get under someones skin. Hence once more, the term "personal attack" .. As i said before, probably a little harsh and uncalled for.

Hoss

Why can't we all get along?


Could both sides say it would suck to get hit in the knee or the head and drop all this stuff?

Jungle Monkey

Gotta agree with Hoss. Let it go, folks.

CONLEY

Hey Komets fans.Finally online! Let's go!

CONLEY

Hey Komets fans.Finally online! Let's go!

Jerad Shaw

It doesn't bother me! Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and my post was a little on the dumb side without explination. Don't worry, I will be the first person to tell ya I'm not the sharpest crayon in the box!

Hoss

You might not be the sharpest, but I bet you can draw a pretty picture!

ds214

Does anyone know what the longest winning streak is in hockey...Only wins. What is the longest winning streak in the I.

JW

we are the dominant team in a weak league and our fans still cant get along... nothing can satisfy this crowd... i dont get why people try to be know-it-alls and analyze every part of every game on here, then get mad when someone else does the same thing... oh wait its a blog

get over it people, we all have to put up with each other no matter how "dumb" a persons post may be.

i would hate to see what would happen if we were a weak team in this weak league... CHAOS

JW

its MINOR LEAGUE hockey...not to mention 'AA' MINOR league hockey

JW

its MINOR LEAGUE hockey

'AA' MINOR league hockey

give it a rest

Jungle Monkey

I think JW is saying that its "AA Minor League Hockey"..

Rich

Let me be the first to welcome Conley. I guess they will let anyone on here ; ) just kidding.

Ryne Gurney

I enjoy the difference of opinions, it creates lively discussion and gives me somthing to think about in between games. Some people take it too far though.

Brandon

Conley knows how to turn on a computer?!

Jerad Shaw

He had to txt me in order to find out the tricky steps to get to the blog. Then he mentioned that it was from a blackberry. He is Mr. Technology!! :)

jonndfi

Hey Komets 123- the attack wasn't personal! It was opinion about what was said, not about the poster. It was a fact that an injury to the knee can be just as damaging as any other injury. The fact that I said it was a dumb post is a fact- not an opinion. Ask 10 of your friends which is more damaging and I think they would have a hard time deciding. I didn't know I had to be constructive with every statement I make. It wasn't a personal attack and wasn't trying to get under any persons skin. Move on.
