Tailing the Komets


April 24, 2011 - Fort Wayne, Ind. - Terry Hapner reacts as he and some 200 other Fort Wayne Komets fans watch the Rapid City Rush score their fourth goal of the first period on the numerous TV screens at Wrigley Field Bar and Grill on Sunday. The Komets eventually lost 6-1 to the Rush to end their season with a 3-2 CHL Turner Conference semifinal series loss in Rapid City, SD.

It was a darn shame we fell behind so early and it was never a game. With so many people along with Schrock and Phillips out there, it could've really been an interesting night. Alas...

The feed was awful, I wonder if it was all part of the crap coming from CHL TV and crappid pity. 40 percent of the feed was graphics. Might as well just have listened to Chase because I didn't see much of the game.

I'd just like to say thank you to Wrigley Field for showing all three road games for us. The place was definitely rocking in orange and black last night. Thanks to all the fans (and players that I somehow missed!) who came out to show their support. I'm just sorry it ended on a sad note.

Thanks too to Blake for all you've done again this season and for maintaining this blog. It gives us Komets fans an outlet to show our support for the team and to express our views on the greatest sport ever.

See everyone Wednesday night!

I have no idea why the feed was so awful at times, as it was not as bad during games 1 and 2. I believe it had something to do with them not being prepared for the possibility of a game 5.

That said, they were just using a feed to the scoreboard. And the scoreboard operators were showing those ads/gimmicks/etc more than usual, it appeared. Hopefully next season, they can clear that up some for others to enjoy the game.

Thanks to Buffalo Wild Wings @ Coventry for showing the game last night as well - their staff was tremendous at keeping up with the influx of K's fans!

Despite a dismal ending to the season, it was great being able to spend the evening with other K's fans, cheering loud (and sighing heavily).

See ya Wednesday night @ the Jersey Auction!

I know it was a feed from the video boards inside the arena, but whoever operates that thing did a HORRENDOUS job. How many times in the MC do they show ads and graphics like that during play? I don't know how many times the feed went to some 'power play' graphic just as the puck was being dropped to begin play. That's akin to a fan waiting for the puck to be dropped to get up to go out the aisles. And after goals here, we show replays, not fancy graphics of the players who scored and assisted. It just looked amazingly inept.

I too would like to thank Wrigley's for showing all the away games. They were prepared with plenty of staff and the service I got was prompt and courteous. It's just a shame the game wasn't better.

They have the option to have two different feeds. one with all the ad's and one without. The K's had this issue when the games were on B2.

I quit listening to the game on Sunday with a couple minites left. Read somewhere that the Komet coachs didn't go through the handshake line after the game. Is that true Blake?

They were first in the line.
