Blake, amazingly I still have 93% of my body covered in hair! For another Turner Cup ring in the fall, it was worth it! These players just never said die and I am proud every day to say that I am a member of the Fort Wayne Komet organization. For those of you that don't know, the office staff that the Komets have do more than a lot of larger NHL staffs and put everything they have into presenting the best product possible. Thanks to David for putting together the team with Al, Michael for keeping all the pieces in line, Scott for his creativity and being the go to guy for anything and everything, Josh and Rick for keeping game night operations smooth and putting great product out for souvenirs, Jodi and Tammy for doing the little things and keeping the office in check, Nancy for checking the legalese and keeping the books in line, Gene for keeping all the finances in check, and all the interns and souvenir people who devote lots of hours to make Fort Wayne Komet Hockey the best that it can be. It's a job we all love to do because we are fans too. Thanks for your continuing support of Komet Hockey to everyone this season. Is it October yet???

Blake, Amazing coverage all year long. I would only add to Larrys comments above that The off-ice officials would agree with every word he has written. Our is purely a labor of LOVE. The Komet "Family" is just not the organization but the fans as well. We all really love our Komets. I am ready for October and the "Three Peat" to begin. Best of luck to the players. Keep us up on the latest Blake and to all have a very safe summer.

Sorry Denny, I thought I had put off-ice and office together in that and I didn't. Definitely didn't mean to exclude "the guys".It was late and I was still admiring my "Sebring Summer" haircut.

The off-ice guys put up with alot of my ranting and raving during the games on the headset but I have to have someone to talk to about the games!!! I think they understand no matter how much they'd like to punch me out sometimes. When it gets to the end of another championship year, you feel grateful that you get to go to work with the best at what they do and it does make it enjoyable to get to the rink every night and during the summer I miss that.

So here's to a little time off (way too much) and visions of another championship season on the horizon. No "Three Peat", that is a patented trademark of Pat Riley (No Kidding), so we have to come up with our own slogan.

Thanks guys and ladies of the ranks , Blake, and all you fans for making going to work such a nice thing to do.

How much did they auction Larry's hair off for? :)

Wed, 05/13/2009 - 2:40pm

Just so you know, Larry got just what his hair is worth. Absolutely ZERO dollars. Yes, sometimes there is the IHL rule book and than there is the Hockey Rule book according to Larry. Most of the time the two never meet. Lets' see if I get this correct. There would be no penalties on any Komet. There would only be intent to injure penalties on the other guys. Only Penalty shots for the K's and every visiting coach would get tossed out by at least the second period. How close did I get Larry? Your rant's were actually much more controlled this year. Maybe your just getting older. He*l we are all. It just gets sweeter! Have a very safe summer!
