Tailing the Komets

Get there early

According to some folks at the coliseum I talked to, Friday's game is expected to have a very big crowd.

Yay! I love it when there is an excess of idiots.. Parking is soooo much easier now that they reconfigured the entrances. A beer is six bucks. If you have to use a credit card... you don't need one.

My bigger issue with the parking is that the light on Coliseum stays green for all of 45 seconds to turn into the Coliseum parking lot and that gets pretty ugly when there is a larger crowd. Guess I'll have to roll in early. God help us when Vera comes to town...

what about a debit card?

FW I agree with the light.
It seems that only 5 to 6 cars get to go before it turns red. It really sucks if your running late.

Good Lord, now the street lights arent even good enough......LOL :)

JR: I was referring to a stop light, not a street light! You should know that we are all about details on this blog and you should've known EXACTLY what I meant!! ;) LOL! Have fun tonight everyone. Hopefully we have a good showing and I really have to struggle to find something negative to write about, since I'm whatever the name of the week is this week.

I do have a question... Why is it they continually say they are going to "lower the window more next week" on the car for chuck-a-puck, yet the window is never any lower than the week before? That's always confused me. I guess we'll find out tomorrow.

If you happen to be sitting on Coliseum waiting for the light to enter the game, keep an eye out for the guy on the Hoveround who has b@lls of steel and drives it in from across the street with his orange flag waiving in the wind above him. Now that's guts and dedication!

Hoveround Guy fears no car... We should put him out on defense.

Fri, 03/19/2010 - 8:22am

JM-cruel but funny. If you had his money we could both retire. I have known him for 50 years.

Fri, 03/19/2010 - 8:41am

FW, no wonder its so hard to get in off of Coliseum.....since its only a stop light... Call the city ASAP and have them put in a stop AND go light... Things will go more smoothly after that... Geez!!!!

AAAAAhahahahahahah! That would help out SOOOO much!

Dschebig: You know that guy? Tell him he's a celebrity and he doesn't even know it. Where does he come from? He's probably got so much money since he parks at Holiday Inn and doesn't get ripped $4 for the same type of asphalt that's across the street.

Frozen, you must have been talking to my mom about the car windows in Chuck-a-puck! Every time she says the same thing... "they haven't rolled down that window one inch!" Not that we ever have a prayer of winning the car, we can't even hit the shopping cart that's right in front of us! :)

Sorry FW, very, very, very, VERY slow day at work...lol

Fri, 03/19/2010 - 9:42am

Slow day at work = many, many hits for Blakes blog....lol

JR: It seems like when you, JM, Hit, Alan and I don't spice things up, it gets a bit boring... ::Yawn:: Should we start taking pre-game guesses at which color of paint is not dry?? Hope to hear everyone at the game! GOOOOO KOMETS!!!!

Fri, 03/19/2010 - 11:37am

Watching Paint Dry is my favorite segment.

Fri, 03/19/2010 - 11:51am

Crap, I had my dominate discussion box clicked on again.... My bad, its off now.....lol

Which guy in the Hoveround? If you're talking about the bald guy...about 60ish....I've dealt with him before...he lives across the street by the Red Cross....a celebrity he is not.

The guy I've seen has one of those with the four wheels, orange flag on top of a white poll on the back of it. I have seen him with a fellow rider once, but the other times he's been flying solo.

MMA FIGHTS in Findlay Ohio, April 10th/ Who fights Goulet tonight?

Fri, 03/19/2010 - 3:00pm

Bob-The guy lives over there behind the Redcross. He is a nice guy but he more than likely has the first nickel he ever got. He is a big mooch! If you talk to him you would understand. Likeable kind of guy. Just very very tight.

I have the perfect way to win that D@mn Car......take a bag full of real pucks and I bet you can get a puck in the front seat one way or another.

If someone actually does that.....please pretend like you didn't read this, and remember, Hit Somebody!!! is not responsible for the decisions made by idiot bloggers who decide to show a tadbit more effort in their chuck-a-puck throwing than that of PC Buddy dogging it on the ice.

The Hoveround guy's name is Dan, he hits on any redhead under 40 in sight (right, Wendy? you were standing there while I was trying to be oh-so-polite...), and he won't remember a thing you tell him 5 minutes after you say it! But he is nice, at least. He went to the very first Komet game, he claimed....4 times....in the same conversation....repesatedly. Poor guy! Maybe he stood in front of the real puck when someone was trying to get it into the window of the car?

Someone did win that thing last year...it was pretty impressive. I'm sure that's why they are not lowering the windows this year. Not chancing giving a second car away!

Oops, typo....repeatedly....my bad.

Fri, 03/19/2010 - 6:53pm

Are you all on dope? I can tell from my cheap seats they lower the window.
