Tailing the Komets

Wendy interviews Dick Close

Close worked for Pepsi Cola, a major sponsor of the Fort Wayne Komets, for a number of years and is now retired. He is a season ticket holder and has been attending games since 1957. He was privileged to know a few Komets legends personally, such as goalie Robbie Irons, who also worked at Pepsi for a time. As a Komets fan, Close made a point to travel to a number of away games over the years, visiting every current IHL city except Bloomington, IL and has a great many interesting stories from the various locales over the years.
