Blake, these signs show just a part of the community support for the Komets. They are placed to let the players know that the city is behind them and to help motivate.

Andrea pointed out today that Lovell's comments should be posted in the locker room for the players to see. Kind of a motivational exercise. You ( as you had done in the past when locker room material was suggested ) indicated that if you need this kind of stuff to get motivated then it was a "you" problem.

Not sure why it is a "problem" at all. Being in sales for 30 years, I know that there are many types of motivational techniques. There are many "buttons" one can push to motivate people because we are all so different from one another. Bobby Knight's style is certainly different, from say, a Dick Vitale. And yet both coached the same game.

Be careful when you compare your psychological makeup to other people. What gets you going may turn another off, and what makes someone else tick may have no effect on you at all.

If I am wrong than the only reason for these signs is to make the sign owners feel better. That doesn't make sense to me.

Motivation is a reaction that comes from something inside. Anger, excitement, rejection, fear of failure, or just a plain challenge can unlock it. For some "locker room material" is the key to that lock.

Buzzkill ... come on fellas, let's drop the psychoanalysis and get ready for some Game 7 playoff hockey in Fort Wayne.

I'm charging batteries, making sure memory cards are cleared and if it wasn't for just having a brand new hip installed 10 weeks ago, I'd be setting cameras in the catwalk above the goals tonight.

Come on Chad, give that new hip a test drive while its still under warranty, those catwalk pictures are cool. Blake said we are all nuts, we're just prooving it.

Those pictures are cool, maybe we could get the strip joints to put up on their signs:

"pull it off" Komets.

i'll stop there, cause what just went through my mind, if i put in words will get me in trouble.

What went through my mind was a certain scene from "Slapshot"...

That collage is what happens when I finish with work by midmorning and plan on lurking in town until game time.

Just cleaned up my camera's memory card, have two sets of extra batteries in the bag, orange-colored glasses (yes, I really do have a pair -- and they light up!) are in the car. Four hours until the puck drops.

That should be made into a poster for next year for a give away!!!

Hoss-I like that idea. I know some of those business people and most of them a "real" Komet Hockey fans. I for one will support them in anyway I can. Enough talk lets get it on! Go Komets! :)

Well, since we're going to have another 2 weeks of hockey, I suppose I'll end up adding to this.
