Rapid City is in South Dakota... Just an observation. And I'm from South Dakota, so I'm some what partial...

Isn't the journalist the only one that can be made fun of for errors on this blog? Rapid City, Iowa! :-)

If Frankie got his jersey, what are they auctioning off? Does the CHL really go to the expense of having multiples so they sell them?

Multiple jerseys.

As you might be able to guess, I didn't make this mistake, the copy desk did.

You know how that looks, right?

Yep. I man up when I do make the mistake, and they've saved me from a ton of them over the years. It happens.

It also is fixed now.

Asst. coach in the press box first two periods, didn't Al use that his last time here or am I confusing him with someone else?

Someone else.

Blake, that was a terrific article in the paper tonight.

The subtitle "Says Coach Sims: Going for first place is not out of reach", is exactly what I was trying to convey when I posted about this weekend's games going a long way to determine the Komet's fate. I have also peppered in statements regarding the "lost" column in a number of my posts.

Both Bloomington and Missouri have 13 losses. The Komets have 16. Handing these two teams losses tonight and this weekend can bring that loss column much closer. In fact the team with the fewest losses in the Turner Conference is Colorado with twelve.

The other teams in the division are beating up on each other and that is exactly what the K's need to have happen. That, and a nice winning streak will tighten the standings considerably.

They can win this division. They need to keep winning, and that can be a tall order, but it is possible for them to not only qualify for the playoffs but to climb to the top.

Keep watching the "lost" column. Here's hoping that the K's don't add to their total anytime soon.
