That might be the wildest stat I've ever come up with on the Komets, better than the fact they were 12-0 whenever the San Diego Chicken performed at their games. Just blows my mind.

Hit Somebody!!!

Blake i can remembet when the San Diego Chicken was about the only sellouts we would have at the coliseum. Did not know he was here 12 times. Know we soldout the game with the 1984 U S Olympic hockey team. Sellouts were about 8400 i think. Whatever happened to Ted Gianalis the chicken. Misspelled his last name sorry.

Send it here, Burgee. Trust me.

He's still around, Tim. Someday I'll tell you a funny story about getting drunk one night in Phoenix with Chase, Hormann and the Chicken.

Oh, what the heck. Anyway We're at an IHL all-star game in Phoenix and Hormann is bunking with me when Chase gets kicked out of his room for some reason, so he comes on over. It's a Sunday night, and we're complaining because we can't get beer in Arizona on a Sunday. It's beautiful out so the door is open when this little guy walks by, hears Bob's voice and comes right on in. It's Ted Giannoulas. He hears our sob story about no beer, says he'll be right back and comes back with two cases of beer. And it was cold somehow. So we sat there pounding beers all night telling lies with the Chicken.

Funny part of the story is, Chase, who is probably 70 at the time, drinks Hormann and I under the table. We finally crawl off to bed at about 2 a.m. At 5 a.m., Chase is up doing his voice exercises because at that time he's used to getting up to do the morning sports. We could have kiled him.

But it was a great time and a fantastic memory. I looked it up today an the Chicken performed at Komets games 10 times and they were 10-0 in those games.
