My understanding is that they were named Michigan Warriors and not Flint Warriors for this very reason. There is no agreement in place with the NAHL and Flint currently because Perani was giving the Generals first shot, and neither want to share the arena....so what I have seen is that Port Huron would be choice #2 for the Warriors. And that seems to be the better fit right now.

Ok, I'll come clean, not a phiLly fan, just wanted it to go 5 games cause there is a good chance a friend can get free tickets, we'll see, if not no harm no foul, well free to us, someone is paying for them, probably some big evil corporation.

Steve, hopefully my next foo foo will be at the madhouse on madison, keep your fingers crossed.

Schebig wears pink socks and eats Bubbas dog bisCuits.

Any rumblings on potential ECHL defections, yes, that's plural. Surely Hit or Monkey has picked sometyhing up on the gossip boards.

I have an autographed muskegon lumberjack jersey=mightbite want to buy=i need foo foo money

NO, actually I heard the info from a SuperFan and a Cohn-head. No one else seems to know anything about that and all seem to think it is bogas.

I keep asking Cohn, and he keeps skipping my question....I wonder if he knows and can't say.

Blake can email me and tell me, but I guess I will wait like the next guy and see what happens at the end of the week or the next 7 to 10 days.

I would love to know who the rumored 2 ECHL teams are and were that might actually had been thinking or maybe still thinking about jumping ECHL ship to join the Super League.

I think the Super League needs a Super Fan to run it.

Wink Wink Knudge Knudge.......

Gossip Boards.?

Whatever Foo Foo Furgee.

FYC has had 2 or 3 contributors that have nailed this thing dead-on for months being that the IHL and CHL were in the works with this thing.

So continue to hate on blogs and bloggers that have forgotten more about inside information than you have drank foo foos.

I know you are laughing and having fun...but at least tell your buddy Dennis to stop bashing people for bringing information to this board.

You guys could start a Foo Foo Flog Full of Fascinating Factions of Feel-good Fiction, free of facts from furry fellow foo foo fraternity followers freeing Ficorelli fans forever.....

That was odd.

You never heard that from me.

Wed, 06/02/2010 - 11:07pm

Not the 2 I heard but I wouldn't consider my source "official", was hoping you might have heard something around the water cooler. Schebigs a harmless cookie eating nascar fan.

You are correct.....it was JC who posted that thought. It wasn't you. Sorry, I read so much stuff, I get the givers of info screwed up sometime.

I apologize.

How about this for a new division of the IHL in the CHL

Kansas City
St. Charles
Chicago or Evansville?

I likes it.

Wed, 06/02/2010 - 11:11pm

I heard Elmira and Florida too.....but I can't figure how that fits into the footprint.

Wed, 06/02/2010 - 11:14pm

I hope one of the new teams is named the FuryJacks......

Bob Chase, he said yesterday on WOWO Pat Miller Show that Muskegon's operations, players, equipment, and Terry Ficorelli would be moved to one of the new expansion teams in the division.

Let's call them Yabba Dabba Fury Jack!!!

Saw a WANE story online tonight that quotes Michael Franke as saying the CHL/IHL will have 17 to 19 teams next season. Eh, we'll see.

Thanks Burgee, Bob, FMM. Regarding STH seats, that's what I thought. I had just seen several people calling it "renewing" recently, and that got me wondering if they held them for longer than that. But I can see how seats might still be open just because no one had purchased them.

Haven't made cookies since mid-April, thank goodness. I only make them when someone else wants to eat most of them.

FLYERS WIN, FLYERS WIN=GOOD CALL BURGEE/If the musky jersey is signed by Kevin Stevens ,Mark Recchi,John Cullen=Oh that was when the IHL was the IHL.

Thu, 06/03/2010 - 5:31am

Removed huh? Wow. Guess I better get on the bandwagon if I want to be part of blog.

Thu, 06/03/2010 - 6:02am

Blackhawks are up 2-1 in games, but need to say prayers of thanksgiving that they aren't down 3-0. Does anyone do replay as well as the NHL? Game 3 Flyers-Blackhawks had multiple examples. Baseball should get a clue.

Thu, 06/03/2010 - 6:19am

What was removed, JM? I'm reading down through these and am confused.

Thu, 06/03/2010 - 6:39am

I was called the "only neagative person" about this "merger". I defended myself and its gone.

That's okay, my redhead receptionist just brought my morning smoothie. I'll take some colored pills and get on board with the theme of the day.

Thu, 06/03/2010 - 6:48am

I'm a neagative "idiot" & hillbilly & don't know nothin.I'm also on 3 different pills =1peach,1purple,1white & can not drink foo-foo drinks. I'm still not "sold" on this year,but I better be making my mind up before someone gets my seats.I know someone is trying to get them before deadline.

Thu, 06/03/2010 - 8:29am

Fingers crossed for you Burgee. Hope you get to see the big cup skated this year, by the Blackhawks. Thought I better through the team name in just to be sure.........

Thu, 06/03/2010 - 9:05am

Blackhawks down 3 - 0! HA, that's laughable...."well, if they would of got more goals scored against them". No kidding.

I took a class in high school called Leisure and Lifetime Activities. We played badminton, talked about our days, roller bladed, bowled, you know, casual stuff. I think there should be a blog for those that want to spend their time talking to each other about their lives.

Hockey lives in the Fort! 90% renewal rate!!! People are spending gobs of money on a on-ice product that they don't have a clue about because they like Icy and the pregame show???? Non-hockey town. I'm ashamed.....here's to our 4th cup, parades, and Icy shows at Fazzoli's!!

Did you guys see that pregame presentation?? THAT....WAS...AWESOME!!! Oh, the hockey game? Did we win? Yeahhhhh, we beat Flint, they only had 7 players and 3 of them live on the streets and the others have part time work at Tom's donuts, but WE WON!!!!

Thu, 06/03/2010 - 9:21am

mightbite = 50th anniversary jersey signed by players i am not familiar with = will run it by some locals who should know

Chaulker, its called Facebook and you get to read all kinds of important stuff like: I just got done clipping Buster's nails!! On to organizing my spoon collection!!! Exciting day for the Smith household!!!!!!!

Thu, 06/03/2010 - 10:05am

mightbite = got 4 figured out, #12 Bryan McLay 1960 - 1978, #8 Darrel Knibbs 69-74, george dean 1938, 39 - #16 dan sharpe 70-74 = not a musky fan so its hard figuring out these signatures.

Bought large Foo Foo Komet Mug from Komet Kuarters, along with more 3 peat shirts. Bought Kane Blackhawks T-shirt.

no tanning today so i am going to brush pokey, cruise facebook all day, might buy Yoda and Lilly a bone, they are good dogs, uncle Harold has put on a lot of weight he is catching up with Uncle Tom.

This probably won't be popular to all the Blackhawk and Flyer fans so forgive me. I was rooting real hard for the Flyers last night. My reason? I want to see more hockey and with their win I am guaranteed of two more games. I will root for the Flyers in game four also just for the same reason. I just want anything that extends the season a little longer. The series has been great, so far. Very entertaining.

I was hoping that Versus would carry the pre-game as I told some friends about Kate Smith and why she would sing "God Bless America" at the Philly games. I was tickled that they had her on the big screen singing. Some of our "younger" friends" on here probably don't even know who Kate Smith was. A great tradition and I'm proud of the Flyers for including it.

I think if you are a STH and you call the Komet office, tell them you want to renew but may have to wait a couple of weeks longer for the money, they will work with you. I think we can understand why they don't advertise that fact as they don't want everyone to do it. I'm very impressed with the staff in the K's office. Both ladies behind the counter know my name when I walk in the door and the first time they said "Hi Alan" it about knocked me off my feet. I couldn't believe they knew me from the 3000 or so other ticket holders. They have always answered any question I might have had promptly and courteously. They have even summoned David Franke for me when I had some questions a couple of years ago. These things are the kinds of service that I don't forget.

Blake, thanks for answering my "map" question. Some real encouraging comments on here today. Good job by everyone.

"I took a class in high school called Leisure and Lifetime Activities. We played badminton, talked about our days, roller bladed, bowled, you know, casual stuff." Explains a lot, doesn't it?

Sorry Chaulker, I couldn't resist, you left that one hang out there, especially for those of us who went to school back in the days when the purpose of going to school was to get an education and it was pretty much a pass or fail situation.

Guess I'll duck now, the flames are probably going to get turned up...... :-)

I just read the redheads are trouble comment. I agree. And FiveMinuteMajor, you are SO a troublemaker. You cannot even begin to deny it, and you know it! LOL....

And Jungle Monkey, no matter what you say (as long as it is not "I hate you, BLB"), you know you are my buddy!! You always have the right to your opinion (as does everyone), and you have never been anything but a sweetheart to me and my little defenseman, here and in person. Thanks for that. We'll remember that when he hits the big time, ok? You'll be rewarded with tickets and locker room passes to NHL games when he gets there. :) Well, ok, that whole locker room thing might be weird for dudes, I don't know....but if it is not, then cool. At the least, tickets, ok?

Thu, 06/03/2010 - 6:33pm

I'm sure that before you know it, your d-man will be needing the name(s) of a good agent to assist him with that big NHL one way contract!

Ok BLB, you're right... I am a troublemaker! But you know I come by it honest! (hi mom) Anyways, Alan is right about the ladies in the ticket office, they're awesome. My season tickets were originally in my dad's name, and I took them over after he passed away. I had all sorts of questions about payment and so on, and they were always great about talking to me. And when I met them in person the first time they knew who I was right away. They are definately a credit to the Komet organization.

Where are all the Nellies?

You seriously went out and bought a Patrick Kane t-shirt Burgee?? It's game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals, and know your calling yourself a Blackhawks fan? Were you around during the dark years of Calder, Cullimore, Karpotsiv, Zhamnov, Arnason, and the other cast-offs? Have fun watching game 4 in your Kane t-shirt, with your K's 5-peat hat you big B-Hawks fan.

I don't mind bandwagon fans, but that purchase is monumental for the entire group. Another reason why this is a non-hockey town, winners produce fans.

Steve - It was my favorite class and my best grade, what can I say. You got to know who you are and what abilities you have.
