Tailing the Komets

So long... for a while

As long as I can get approval from Hit Somebody, I'm going on vacation until early July. Behave yourselves. Please. I'll be spending all the ill-gotten gains I've received from running this blog over the last few years on wine, women and song, meaning it'll be water, Barbie and the Bee Gees marathon. No foo foos for me. Then it will be time to come back and start on the football tab.

Sooo.....what are we gonna do while dad's gone?

Didn't you just have a vacation in mid/late May? You lazy, son-of-a... ;) Bee Gees, huh? Well, "Stayin' Alive" does seem to be the theme this summer. he-he. Have a good one. BTW, I've heard that there will probably be a Komets marathon in the last few days of June. If they run the legendary "lost episode" with Mike from Toronto, I'll be sure to mention it here.

I never got your vacation request form....so I have bad news for you Superfan.


You will have to stay here and help us sort this hockey mess out.

If you do choose to go, I guess I will allow it just this one time, as long as you leave me the keys to the blog....

I would be the bestest blogmaster ever.

This is a must read.

It gives us more of an idea of what to expect.

2 9 team divisions in the CHL.....which Lachenski calls a full out merger, not a date. Which puts Evansville in on this thing as it seems.

This means Our 4 IHL teams + Evansville plus 4 CHL teams in our division.

Maybe it will be ok.

Lets wait and see.

But you have to read this:

Hit has earned a little of that blog hit bonus, no one comes close to posting more than hit.

I nominate the red headed hockey chicks to keep hit in line while superfan is away.

I'll keep schebig on a short leash, well at least long enough where he can't reach me.

Thu, 06/17/2010 - 9:41pm

Wendy, very interested in the "lost episode" so a heads up would be greatly appreciated.

Bring 'em on.

Fri, 06/18/2010 - 2:25am

Oooooo.... Tough guy. You want some of this?


It was a good one, Steve. I'm hoping it will finally air then.

Fri, 06/18/2010 - 6:39am

BLB immidately asks what were gonna do while Dad is gone? This sounds like its happened before... I see trouble on the horizon.

Fri, 06/18/2010 - 7:48am

Blake, how about if I volunteer to monitor the posts and make sure everyone keeps theirs "short and sweet" just as mine always are.

Will that make you feel better while you're on vacation?

Fri, 06/18/2010 - 8:06am

It's hilarious that so many of us seem to feel the need to be monitored...

Alan, good prologue, now let's see the rest of the book ;)

Fri, 06/18/2010 - 11:29am

Blake, hope you have a good vacation!

But you better ask some of the people on ITB/FYC if it's okay for you to take a vacation. They seem to think you shouldn't be on vacation and get upset when they can't get any news from you...

Fri, 06/18/2010 - 2:27pm

LOL!, Yeah because we have such a hard time getting good info at FYC... While a good source, Blake being on vacation wont stop the hundreds of other area's to obtain good info from...

Blake, You deserve this little R&R time . Hope you rest well. Drink a Diet pop for me.

Fri, 06/18/2010 - 10:12pm

Blake, Enjoy the much earned time off.

Sat, 06/19/2010 - 3:57am

Have a nice vacation=training to fight the winner of CARWIN-lesner :)

Sun, 06/20/2010 - 5:51pm

Listen up! I have it on a very good source that our Leader (Blake) is riding his bike to Vegas. He is going to try and and get us the straight skinny on what is happening at the IHL/CHL more commonly called the ASSOCIATION meetings.

Let us remember that he gets paid by the hits on his blog.

Besides someone needs to be complaining/cheering/ranting/raving about something all the time anyhow. So we might as well do it here!

Just remember our "Leader" expects us to keep it clean & respectful. While he's away the mice will play!

Sun, 06/20/2010 - 7:40pm


Blake had better start pedaling faster to get there in time....LOL.

I thought that he was using his time off to buy a really cool sports car or perhaps a convertible.

The league meetings should prove to be interesting....

Sun, 06/20/2010 - 8:24pm

Schebigs a nellie, happy fathers day

Sun, 06/20/2010 - 10:11pm

I thought i saw blaker in new haven today on his 10 speed. vegas or bust!

Mon, 06/21/2010 - 3:18am

What do you want to bet that when the meetings in Vegas are over, they put out a news release that only tells us what we already know, and then we will hear that meetings are ongoing via conference call, but not to worry, because more information will be released soon?

Mon, 06/21/2010 - 7:21am

Wendy--Being the eternal optimist I think after the meetings there will be a joint press conference with a detailed release of this fantastic "New" Association. They will then and try and sell us on the fact that this will be the best thing for minor league hockey since the guy invented ice skates. Of course we will all drink the Kool-Aid and know what a crock of crapola they just sold us. At that point we are all smart enough to know that only time will tell.

Mean while back to the pool and golf all summer. Taking those little pills Burgee supplies and drinking Foo Foo's as I struggle with hockey withdraw. I just can not drink the suntan lotion. Blood Mary's make me think of Red Headed hockey chicks. They taste great but give me a headache if I drink to many. Ain't life great?

Mon, 06/21/2010 - 4:40pm

Yes, of course. Greatest thing since sliced bread. That goes without saying. It's just a question of whether or not they begin the rigmarole on Friday or not.

No withdrawl here. Can I be a strawberry daiquiri instead?

Mon, 06/21/2010 - 4:44pm

After the day that I had...could someone make me a drink?

Mon, 06/21/2010 - 5:03pm

ME TOO!!!!!!!! I fell at work & now have a bruised left hand to go with rotator cuff surgery/ how about a "loverman" equal parts=jamacan rum, coconut rum, southern comfort,grenadine, long splash of pineapple juice.

LOL...Jungle Monkey, it's like you know me or something....yep, my dad may have overheard that line a time or two when I was younger. Oops....

And I feel absolutely no need myself to be monitored. If Blake's pedaling to Vegas, he might need a heart monitor when he gets there....I know I probably would! I doubt I'd make it there without a motor and wider wheels.

And here you go, Bob....have a strawberry daquiri. Ya gotta have something to help with the withdrawal symptoms....

Mon, 06/21/2010 - 5:59pm

mightbite--You were not drinking at work were you? If you talk real nice to Burgee he may be able to help you with the pain. I think it's the little blue ones that do that.

Mon, 06/21/2010 - 8:38pm


Thank You for the drink. It was very good. Mightbite, I hope you're going to be ok. Sometimes work can be hazardous to your health!

Tue, 06/22/2010 - 4:06pm

I bet I have more pills than Burgee / the "loverman" drink I had in the Bahamas/work is hazardous to my health=that is where I tore the rotator cuff :( / any news from IHL meetings?

I'm so not gonna answer the "little blue pill" post, DSchebig....you're setting us all up somehow with that one, aren't you? LOL....is it October yet? Am I not always the first one to post that every single off season? I'm tired of waiting to hear what the Boards are doing....pedal faster, Blake!
