Tailing the Komets

Wheels on the bus go round and round

According to Komets president Michael Franke, Bobby Phillips did not make the trip to Rapid City because of his upper body injury.

That's too bad for Bobby. He worked his tail off all season, only to be sidelined in the playoffs with an "injury."

Wed, 04/13/2011 - 4:01pm

The last game he played, he left the ice with one arm hanging limply by his side.

Hope it's not a torn rotator cuff.

He also said he could have played in game 3 if they were down 2-0 in the first round, so I doubt it's anything more than "Don't fix what isn't broken!"

I have a lot of respect for Bobby. I hope he gets a chance to play during this run.

Unless we go 2-0 on the road, I am sure we will see Bobby play in game three.

I think I found a place to host the games friday and sat if you guys arent having any luck ...... ill know more tomorrow ... Ill let ya know

Thu, 04/14/2011 - 1:52pm

is there any place to show the games like any bars or restaurants?

Thu, 04/14/2011 - 2:07pm

Gw, somebody on another thread said Beach Bums is going to show the road games....

Thu, 04/14/2011 - 2:30pm

I called Beach Bums to confirm and they said they're not sure they can connect to the projector to show the games and would not commit. Said I could check back tomorrow.

I've also contacted Wrigley Field and they're having their computer geek check it out tonight and they're supposed to call me back. The manager, Dan, that I spoke with is a big Komets fan and was very excited about it, so I'm really hoping they can figure it out for us. I'll let everyone know as soon as I hear back from them.

All Komets road games should be shown here in Fort Wayne The place that does this will draw well and will pay for it self with one drink or food order. This is long time coming and sure news station will be all over this which will draw people attention whichs means$$$$$

and checking with CHLtv that they wont sue us for doing it in a public venue

Thu, 04/14/2011 - 11:14pm

Will go to Wrigley but not Beach Bums. Bums has to high priced food for what u get and service is bad. Just my opinion!

Fri, 04/15/2011 - 3:02am

How is the beer prices ??????????
Philly lost :(
Boston lost.

Fri, 04/15/2011 - 5:53am

Got confirmation from Wrigley Field that they WILL show the games both nights! Come on out and show your appreciation to them. A big thank you to Dan for setting this up for us!

Go K's!!!

Fri, 04/15/2011 - 6:18am

Teresa, have they tested it out and everything ok? Thats a cross town drive for me and I wouldnt want to get there and not have them be able to show it...

Fri, 04/15/2011 - 6:34am

Good deal...Wrigley Field > Beach Bums..If I end up going out to watch the games it will def be at Wrigley Field

Fri, 04/15/2011 - 6:42am

Just to be sure, I will contact them later this morning to be sure it's a REAL go. Dan, the manager I spoke with, said his computer guy was coming in last night to be sure they could hook it up for us. I can totally understand not wanting to drive across town and then be disappointed. Fortunately for me, it's about a 2-minute drive!

Hang tight and I'll get back to everyone later.

I just spoke with Dan at Wrigley Field and we are definitely on for tonight and tomorrow night's games. Come on out and join the mania! Show your support for the orange and black! Go K's!!!

Fri, 04/15/2011 - 10:22am

Drinks are on Burgee!!!!

Fri, 04/15/2011 - 10:28am

I will be there tomorrow, have to work tonight.

Thanks for setting this up! Any chance you know if they will show it on just one tv in the main room or if it would be on different tvs (like in the family room?) I just need to know if I can bring my son before I mention to him we can watch the game.

If you don't have time to check or don't want to bother, thats cool. Thanks again!

Fri, 04/15/2011 - 11:02am

I'm not positive but I believe if your under 21 you have to be out by 9pm. I could be wrong but it seems like Ive heard/saw that before

Fri, 04/15/2011 - 11:16am

Yep me and the wifey will be their. Along w acouple of friends. What time is everyone going? We figured we will be their around 8

Fri, 04/15/2011 - 12:04pm

My understanding is that there will be a band there both nights but Dan's going to put them in the room up front and the rest of the place will be ours. The game should be shown on multiple screens for all to see. I also checked about the kids and they told me there would be no problem with kids after 9 PM.
