Tailing the Komets

Can't we all just get along?

Hopefully something a little lighter. What else -- besides following the Komets like the stock market -- do you do for fun? Komets can't take up all of your life, and, yes, I'm looking for ideas. LOL.

Anybody got any interesting hobbies?

Go to hockey games. And read your post.

No..I don't, I lead a boring life. seriously though, I just spend time with my family when I'm not working. Me and my long time girlfriend are getting married May 19, 2007.

I am a huge Cubs, Notre Dame Football, Indiana basketball fan. Gotta love the Colts to.

Mark, didn't you see this post from Brandon the other day, in regards to the possibility of two-man officiating:

I said: "I don't think there are enough people out there who like getting yelled at all the time. LOL."

He said: Has that ever stopped anyone from getting married?

Tue, 03/21/2006 - 10:53am

Blog Foul!

Illegal usage of topic, Rule 77 A (b1.2)
"no professional sports journalist may use the same blog topic in the same 6 month period"

I believe "Can't we all just get along?" was used during a prior blog war between bloggers.

Let me ask my wife what my favorite hobbies are and i'll get back with you. (Note to Mark, been with my wife 24 years, married 15).

Burgee, I've been with my GF 7 years on August..i figure its time to get married, because this is the woman I wanna marry...

Tue, 03/21/2006 - 11:49am

It didn't work then so I was just giving it a second chance. I'm all about second chances, Burgee.

After further review, the ruling on the blog foul has been overturned.

1st down Sebring.

Here's a good topic, "why are you a season ticket holder".

You can replace season ticket holder with other things like when i was a poor college student i wasn't a season ticket holder but i didn't miss a game, i had chaser to listen to.

just a thought, know what i mean Verne?

Tue, 03/21/2006 - 12:08pm

OK, we can go with that.

I really wanted to do some ice fishing this past winter but of course when there is a winter activity I want to do, it doesn't get cold enough to do it. Other things about me...I love going to see movies at the theatre...favorite movie of all time is The Godfather...favorite album is Pink Floyd's Animals...as far as sports go I only really watch hockey and lacrosse (indoor preferably)..I can also watch some football occasionally. Favorite UHL team-Komets ECHL-Alaska Aces AHL-Hershey Bears NHL-Toronto Mapleleafs...Go Leafs Go! What are some of you guy's favorite hockey teams from the other leagues?

Tue, 03/21/2006 - 12:30pm

Oh, that's another topic.

Being someone who loves to listen any type of music, I love to pass time with friends and my wife playing the "Who Sings This?" game.

Fav music: Frank Sinatra, Jack Johnson, Toby Keith, and Stan Kenton. (What a mix CD I make!)

I also like watching about any sport.
Fav teams:
NFL: Dallas Cowboys, still not sure about TO
MLB: Yankees and Cubs
NCAA: Indiana, since Mike Davis is gone now!
NHL: Red Wings
NASCAR: Jimmy Johnson

Other hobbies:
Collecting NFL jerseys (over 100 of them now)
Collecting Cowboys Autos (Aikman, Emmitt, Moose Johnston)
Listening to, and following, every request my wife makes. (I don't think she reads this blog, but you can never be to safe!)
The biggest thing I love to do is spend time with my 8 month old son, TJ!!!

See Mark, Hoss is a wise, wise man. He knows.

Tue, 03/21/2006 - 2:44pm

Hoss is also Mark's bro-in-law.

I got the good one in the family!!!

Tue, 03/21/2006 - 3:09pm

Oh, my gosh that's hilarious! So in other words, he looks at your situation and thinks this must be easy?

Tue, 03/21/2006 - 3:58pm

What the marriage part? I asked Hoss if he would be in my wedding, he goes yeah, sounds good, he then asked when, I said May of 2007. His response, So she has time to leave me, that was funny..thanks Hoss..

Tue, 03/21/2006 - 3:59pm

Its funny to, because my sister reads the blog, no not his wife, but my older sister..so he would probably get in trouble either way..

Tue, 03/21/2006 - 4:53pm

I'm not sure about that Blake, thats kinda, not a cool thing to say..

Tue, 03/21/2006 - 5:02pm

I apologize then, just making a joke. I don't want your sister coming after me.

Tue, 03/21/2006 - 5:21pm

I mean the whole reference to sister and the word you chose was "kinky"..I mean this isn't Kentucky

Tue, 03/21/2006 - 8:21pm

I really enjoy the opera, ballet, figure skating, I like to watch soap operas---Young and the Restless is my favorite. I really don't have a favorite team. I just go to the games with my husband. I think Rob Guinn is so cute. I hate it when they fight and hit each other. I don't understand all that. I don't appreciate the sexest comments on here either. Grow up!

Wed, 03/22/2006 - 2:41pm

Betty, I must have missed the "sexest comments" that were made here. Please help me out...

Wed, 03/22/2006 - 2:42pm

If anyone is interested, the wife and I enjoy Wizards Baseball, NHL Playoffs, especially if the Red Wings are doing well, I enjoy photography, working on the computer, swimming. The wife is wanting to go to Chicago (her hometown) to watch the White Sox....so a trip to the South Side is in the works. But that won't be until after a long (I hope) playoff run!

Thu, 03/23/2006 - 7:27pm
