Tailing the Komets

So, I'm standing next to the boards...

...for the last half of the third period, at the end where the Bloomington goaltender is, and this punk says, ``3:00 to go until a shutout,'' to his girlfriend, acting like he actually knows what he's talking about. I look up at him and say, ``You just jinxed it.''

``Shut up, old man, I don't want to hear it.''

So what happens? About a minute and a half later Bloomington scores, of course. I look up at the guy and say, ``That one's on you.''

Again, ``I don't want to hear it old man.''

Wow. Now I could care less about being called an old man, because like I get called worse by you guys on here every day and have thicker skin than a mastodon. But what a jerk to ruin Reiter's shutout like that! He was sitting in the front row to the right of the goal. Friday night if he's there, beat the ever loving crap out of him for ruining Kevin's shutout, won't you? LOL.

Not that I offend easy or anything.

Blake...Here was my angle

Wed, 02/09/2011 - 10:44pm

It was a collective effort... A lady behind me said the same thing about the same time... I looked at the wife and shook my head. She said... "Why don't they just start the wave while they're at it."

Of course I countered with "Who. The 64 people on the other side of the arena?"

Wed, 02/09/2011 - 10:47pm

Yes their was one behind me in the suits above 213 who yelled shutout. i yelled back and said thanks for giving them a goal. Also Cohn mentioned it on his twitter alittle bit b4 the goal. So its also on him! BTW Blake did you look at him and say " do you know who i am kid, Im super Blake!!!!" haha

Super Fan....you should of beat the krap out of Burgee.....

Oh, you said front row......I thought you said corporate suites...



Great game for the K's......they looked like they were jerking the PTs chains all night.

Klutz is a sissy for not answering the bell at the end of the game when Mirasty was looking to dance again.

How good has Patrosso been since Chaulk and Lardner have been on his line???

OC looked great.

Curadeau.....still not there yet. If he ever gets going, who can beat us?

Leo was hitting hard out there.

The guys played with alot of confindence and looked like they had no pressure.

They had Bloomington chasing all night.

The Real Komets are here fellas. The CHL better be aware. They are hot and on a run.

Wed, 02/09/2011 - 11:03pm

Anyone tell me why made Leo start swinging? I was watching the puck and just noticed him swinging. Was it a high hit, elbow etc?

Wed, 02/09/2011 - 11:03pm

what not why*

Wed, 02/09/2011 - 11:06pm

Scooter, check the thread of Mirasty's first fight

Wed, 02/09/2011 - 11:14pm

I thought it looked pretty obvious that Bloomy had 3 new D-men in the lineup tonight...

K's pressure in the offensive zone was very good...

Still a little shaky in thier own zone; but Rieter didnt have to make too many tough saves, so it wasnt a factor tonight...

Good win as they continue thier climb...

Wed, 02/09/2011 - 11:31pm

He actually called you "old man"? Twice?! Unbelievable. I thought that was the kind of cutting-edge dialog that could only be dreamed up by "B" movie directors.

Hit Somebody!!!

JR + JM + GM = Kasual Fans.....LOL

Wed, 02/09/2011 - 11:38pm

Thats right, Hit.... I got rid of my season tickets so I would actually feel wanted by the Frankes...lol You remember, they could care less about you STH's, its us Kasual fans that matter..... LOL!


Wed, 02/09/2011 - 11:41pm

I go for the thunder stix!

Wed, 02/09/2011 - 11:55pm

There were five people to blame for losing the shutout...the five guys who thought a game was 58 minutes instead of 60. We were COMPLETELY standing around and watching them pass it right by us with Reiter left all alone. 60 minutes boys!

I just want a Greg Puhulski Bobble Head to add to my collection.


A Larry Sterling Bobble Head that I can chant at and I can bump him so that he can shake his head in shame as I yell at him and make him feel the pain of being yelled at by a nonhardcore fan.


A Super Fan Bobble Head that I can knit a cute little #9 K's Jersey for so that everytime someone cracks on his favorite player, I can bump him and he can shake his head and get angry at me in person rather than mad at me is cyberspace.

What the heck are you talking about HS???

RK gets bold post of the morning award....

Thu, 02/10/2011 - 8:27am

Nice story Blake, I got stories about my fan interactions. Maybe you should start an article about the tool belts that trickle into the MC.

Thu, 02/10/2011 - 9:29am

Hahaha, at least one person saw it before it was taken down. A humble bow in your direction, Hit :)

Thu, 02/10/2011 - 9:39am

Yeah..pretty weak that RK's post was taken down. Atleast defend your ground, not act like it never happened.

Thu, 02/10/2011 - 9:42am

And I missed it.. !

Thu, 02/10/2011 - 10:15am

Soooo....Would you rather have been called an "old woman"?

Thu, 02/10/2011 - 10:54am

I missed it RK! Dang it!

Thu, 02/10/2011 - 11:26am

That's two that have been taken down today now. I must be on a roll.

Thu, 02/10/2011 - 5:13pm

I'd put some of the blame on Cohn! Not only did he tweet it once, he did it twice! And when he did the first tweet it was WAAAY before they scored, practically once the 3rd period started.

But yes...it's the K's fault too for letting down and not playing a full 60 minutes.

Hit Somebody!!!
Thu, 02/10/2011 - 11:48pm

I can hook you up JM and Chaulker....check your FYC PM.

Fri, 02/11/2011 - 12:14am

Its my fault, I was tired and thought a 5 goal lead was good, flu running rampant at the house, kinda like the hooch on press row at the MC.

Fri, 02/11/2011 - 12:52am

ARTHUR: Old woman!
ARTHUR: Old Man, sorry. What knight live in that castle over there?
DENNIS: I'm thirty seven.
DENNIS: I'm thirty seven -- I'm not old!
ARTHUR: Well, I can't just call you `Man'.
DENNIS: Well, you could say `Dennis'.
ARTHUR: Well, I didn't know you were called `Dennis.'
DENNIS: Well, you didn't bother to find out, did you?
Sorry, couldn't resist...

Fri, 02/11/2011 - 10:25am

Wendy is talking about another DENNIS not me! I'll never see 37 again. You'll just have to trust me on this.

Fri, 02/11/2011 - 11:36pm

Maybe not, Dennis, but you're young at heart, and that's all that matters. :)

It's from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail", but yeah, I noticed that the name was the same and thought of you.
