You can read Larry Schmitt's story here and be sure to watch the video, too. Congrats to Larry!
Can't watch the video, get this message, "This video not allowed to be played in imbedded viewers".
Got it fixed now. Thanks, Steve.
Blake, the video is still not working. It says "error 2124".
Anybody else having problems with it?
It worked for me. I'll double that regarding "Cotton-Eyed Joe". People seem to love it, but I can't enjoy it, knowing what the original version of the song was about.
Congratulations Larry! Great job.
The original is MUCH better.
Concrats Larry, which i could get a list of the songs you play, so i could add on my sons cd that we play before the game and on the way to games. Wish you would play lets go komets a little more. Lets Go Komets!!!
Congrats Larry, not many can say they do what they love and display the passion for the game and team the way you do!
Having worked beside Amstutz for many years and I do not want to speak bad about the departed. I have also worked with Larry for all of his games. Larry is one of a kind. Congrats Larry! I have watched and listened as you have grown up and become very accomplished at what you do. Here is hoping for many more years for all of us!
This is from MondesisHouse.com "Sports and Entertainment with a Pittsburgh Twist":
Most people are unaware that the song
The PC police will strike again.....
They didn't have hockey back then, besides that its from the south, any hockey team south of mason Dixon isn't a real team anyway
I'm offended by that post.
so this is a blog about song lyrics ?? are you kidding me ..????? if the songs that are played are the biggest complaint then I wish I had your life. Maybe you should go explain to that kid who dances to that song the " original meaning " to the song .. I bet he probably has a rebel flag on his wall at home. and cant stand Leo. Grow up its a song with a catchy beat ..... could play the music with no words and have the same effect. Get over yourself. you could nit pick any song and find a " negative meaning " to it ... so maybe we should just stop all music at games. And you know making fun of players may hurt their feelings so no more yelling at games. and since we are all getting fat you cant buy food or drink at the games either. I think maybe they should just not let people go to the arena and everyone has to watch at home in the closed off bubble they live in.
looks like we need to rename the building .... darnit I just cant seem to get into
In the 1980s, L.A.'s seedy Sunset Strip was the epicenter of one of the America's edgier rock music scenes. On Sunset, "sex, drugs, and rock n' roll" was more than a lame clich
Here we go........
no burgee Im done said my peace ......... I dont argue .. not worth the time that is needed to invest ... I have more important things ... kids wife job family ....... I just saw the post and Larry is a friend and I was just reading comments ..... I didnt try to start anything ....
Of our first five presidents, four owned slaves. Of numbers 6 through ten, four more owned slaves, two of which did so while in office. Numbers 11 through 15 had two presidents who owned slaves, both while they were in office. Famous #16 was not opposed to slavery, just its expansion.
Washington owned more than 200 slaves, while Jefferson owned more than 100. By the above logic, that should cancel out learning about the Revolutionary War and the Declaration of Independence. James Madison bought and sold slaves his entire life, so no more learning and/or supporting the Constitution of the United States. Andrew Jackson owned around 160 slaves, so there goes ever visiting Florida (which he basically single-handedly took from the Spanish. Andrew Johnson owned 8 slaves, so no more learning about him and Reconstruction. And to cap it off, Ulysses S. Grant owned slaves before the war (eventually he released them), which means we cannot learn about the end of the Civil War or one of the most corrupt administrations in presidential history.
Is this post completely ridiculous, long, and unrelated to hockey or congratulating Larry on his great accomplishment? YES! Now you get the point.
Congratulations, Larry. LET'S GO KOMETS!
If it hadn't been for Cotton-Eye Joe, I'd been married long time ago...
Thank You everyone for the nice comments. As a kid, I always thought the Komets were "my team" because back in the early 70's there weren't a lot of Komet fans. And it's amazing all these years later how many truly devoted fans we have. It makes me so proud to be a part of the best hockey club around with a core of fans more passionate and more vocal than just about any other. You make the job fun and keep me on my toes in trying to bring you the best entertainment for your buck and trying to find the next new "sound byte" that becomes a favorite. I want to thank the late Jim Amstutz, Bob Chase, all the Frankes, Scott Sproat, Jody, Tammy, Nancy, Rick, Josh, Gene, the late Tim Hoke, Randy Marcum, Blake, Dunner, all of the off-ice officials and all the staff and all the players and especially my family and friends for allowing me to pursue my dream and have lots of fun in doing so.
Hey i got an ideal!! lets just have no music at all and just all advertising!! that way Larry and all of us can be bored to death!!! lol Keep playin the good music Larry, ur great man!!! Lets Go Komets!!!!
