So I want to know who jumped up and surprised you last night for the Komets? I really thought Brian Boulay looked good before he got conked, and I was impressed with Jay Holladay, too. Varone is scary quick and Mironovic was laying the lumber a few times.
I really thought the coliseum made a number of nice changes to the scoreboard so the ads weren't so overwhelming, and shutting the ads off during the pre-game ceremonies was a total class act. It was much more enjoyable to see than during the exhibition games.
I also thought Klosowski did a very nice job on a game that could have very easily have gotten out of control. Man, was there a lot of talking going on last night, or what? It was a yap-fest, especially early, but I thought he did a good job.
I talked to Jake Pence before the game and he's going to start wearing a quarterback-style flak jacket when he returns so that should take care of any more potential rib problems. Brandon Warner is also hopeful to play next week. Talk about a trial by fire, but that's two nights in a row when the Komets played with five D, and the kids showed up very well.
