Tailing the Komets

Oh, crap, is Skate in trouble


Terry Pembroke did not think Skate's little crack the other day about Don Imus being on the Komets' blog was too funny. In fact, as you can see, he has taken some drastic action and he wants me to give him Skate's identity and address. He said something about doing a Texas Two-Step on his face. I'm not sure that's an exact quote because of all the four-letter words that were used that I couldn't decipher.

Above left is the picture Skate was commenting on, and next to it is the result of what happened. I'm not exactly sure which picture Terry was sober for and which he wasn't. Unlike Skate, I'm sure as heck not stupid enough to ask him, either.

If I were you, Skate, I'd start running, but I'm not sure where. Canada is not an answer, because he'll have Cal Purinton guarding the border, and neither is Mexico since you'll probably have to run by Pembroke's house to get there.

I would cover my identity: You could post as "skater" to fool people.

I don't know if you can hide behind the R though skate. Pembroke looks like he's been training for you.

Skate is a deadman

That's funny stuff. I want to see this whooping on youtube.

Keep your head up, Skate. Pemmer's about to lay a hip check on ya!

First, it was not my intention to insult anyone. My comment was a joke. I am sorry if Pembroke was offended. I still think it was funny. I have never consciously tried to instigate anyone on this blog.

Having said that, I'm not really too worried about Penbroke doing a "Texas-two step" (whatever that is) on my face since the only time he ever gets back to town is when the Franke's spring for a plane ticket to an old timers gathering.

Finally, if he DID ever come at me, Blake, tell him I'd just get around him to the INSIDE just like Gary Ford always used to.

So telling me to go find Goneau's team isn't instigating, huh???
Yeah right.

Hit Somebody!!!

Hey Blake I just got my copy of "Tails of the Komets" in the mail today. It's really great. I love all the stats and the color on the past teams. I'm really enjoying it.

Skate ...Pop in Urban Cowboy and you can catch Travolta two stepping all over Gilly's I don't know if you can do it on Ice Skates but I imagine Pembroke has tried it. He had a nice head of hair working for him there ...sounds serious to me...I'm sure Brad, Hit , and the other bloggers will have your back.

Thanks Goalie Girl. Glad you like it. Did you get the first edition or the second one? The second one is the shown up on the left. If you'd like me to sign it, I'd be happy to do it before a game next year.

And actually, Pemmer and I made this all up as a joke. He thought Skate's comment about Don Imus was pretty funny. He has a friend who is going through cancer treatments and shaved his head as a sign of support. When my mom went through Lymphoma, my brother, dad and I offered to shave our heads, too, but she shut that down by saying it wouldn't grow back. Funny lady. To sidetrack just a little, you know how some smart aleck bald guy always says he rubbed it off against the headboard? My dad tried that once and my mom immediately said, Watch it start to grow back. Funny how dad never tried that joke again.

And the reason Pemmer sometimes had trouble on that side will be revealed in the next Komets book, which will probably be out at the start of the 2008-09 season. It's a pretty amazing story.

Blake, I do have the second one and I will take you up on signing it for me when the season starts. I think its really great that Pemmer is supporting his friend. My Dad had lung cancer and through all the treatments never lost his hair. I would have shaved my head in support of him too. Unfortunatly the cancer moved rather quickly and took him in 89. Your family has a great sense of humor. Your Mom sounds very witty. I think Pemmer looks good, but then again I love bald men anyway. Skate is relentless . It's what keeps the blogs interesting. With all the hoopla going on about the team, I still feel like we will get past this and have a team that we all can support and have good hockey in the jungle this season. I guess once your bitten by the Komet Bug your hooked. Gotta ask, in the book you explain how Icy came to be. What was the San Diego Chicken thinking? Morganna did have sufficant padding if she fell on the ice. Smart Bird

What can I say, he was only thinking with his beak.

Greg ---

Since my Goneau comment was not in the last five minutes of this threat posting, I am OK.

Fri, 07/06/2007 - 5:33pm

Actually, I try to instigate people on here all the time.

Fri, 07/06/2007 - 8:30pm

Sat, 07/07/2007 - 3:37pm

I whooped Parker Shelton in a bar fight at the Rock just last summer.

Sun, 07/08/2007 - 8:50pm

Sun, 07/08/2007 - 9:32pm
