Tailing the Komets

Ceremonial puck drop

Before tonight's game, Komets' great Len Thornson and Applebees Chief Operations Officer Ron Long made the ceremonial puck drop along with Fort Wayne area director Kevin Bennett and Gretchen and Dean Spires of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. In Thornson's honor, Applebees made a $60,000 donation to Make-A-Wish.

Thornson and Long have been talking for a few months regarding the situation with Thornson's memorabilia and have developed a friendship.

I just wanted to know if anyone else has a problem during the national anthem in which the scoreboard pans thru the crowd. I think the flag should be up on the scoreboard during the ENTIRE anthem. Not panning thru the crowd. I have noticed that people watch for themselves on the scoreboard instead honoring our anthem. I think that is very disrespectful.
