Tailing the Komets

WOW, want an old sweatshirt?

Longtime Komets fan Rick Longsworth sent me this message today:

``I have a Komets 92-93 Turner Cup Champions large black sweatshirt available for free.  It has been worn well, often, and with pride in Fort Wayne, Kzoo, and Cincinnati.  It is far from mint condition, but it is still ready for more wear.  It is free to a deserving Komet fan.  Any ideas on how to make this available to a very deserving Komet fan that can cherish it for years to come?
``I just want it to go to someone who would appreciate it and be proud to wear it for the rest of its useful life.  It has been worn and washed a lot, but the logo and words are still good including the big orange WOW on the back.  It started out as X-Large but it is closer to a Large now after repeated washings over all those years.''
If you are intersted, post a comment and I'll do a drawing of the winner sometime Tuesday. That also means you need to supply your correct email address.

I'm sure that Kathleen would enjoy it...especially since it is from the era when her brother in law played.

I know someone who would enjoy that sweatshirt.

Swing by upper 211 tomorrow night and see the matching hat my Dad wears to the finals games

I'd love to add that to my Komets outerwear collection.

Remember the tie die and "fan to the bone" tee shirts? Yep I still pull those out this time of year.

I know a young Komet fan, in a wheel chair, who would cherish that sweatshirt. He would wear it with pride and always honor the "Vagabonds" who won that "Championship"!
While he wasn't born when they won that title I am sure he has heard about those players.

Let's hear them for the game tonight....

I'll say 1-0 Komets, with a OT winner from Warner!

Mon, 05/10/2010 - 9:43am

I'll throw my name in

My prediction??? Problem's with lighting at the Coliseum..... So far we've had problems with the scoreboard, sound and purses, so I figure lighting is next...

We'll get there and the ice will just be 1.5" deep water. Turns out the frost last night somehow shorted out the refrigeration device, causing it all to melt. No one thought to check the ice until 6:00 PM tonight. LOL! Sorry, just had to build off of JR.

I just have a feeling about tonight's game... Flint 3-1. Sorry, kids. I hope I'm wrong though.

Komets go up two games, 5-3.

Mon, 05/10/2010 - 1:13pm

Only way anyone scores 4 goals a game in this series is an empty netter or garbage goals at the end.

I hate to copy a poster above, but I thought this morning 3-2 Flint in overtime. I hope both GM and myself miss the mark.

Great article about the faceoffs Blake. Cool stuff.

Mon, 05/10/2010 - 1:30pm

Langdon tonight, few power plays, Komets 4-2 with an empty netter, flints goals come on a 5 on 3 power play followed directly on the same power play another goal.

Mironovic, Deangelis, Drouin and Dupuis with the empty netter.

Schaafsma, Ronan.

Komets 3-1: Komets Win, Komets Win, Komets Win!!!!! Go Guys..

Mon, 05/10/2010 - 2:06pm

2-1 Komets Woods game winner :)

Mon, 05/10/2010 - 2:32pm

Komets 4-Flint 2. Both coaches have had time to tweak their game plans now that they have been able to look at game films.

I think Flint will try to come out with more of a physical style of play against the K's. It will be up to the K's to keep their cool and not march into the penalty box.

As I posted before game 1, it will be the Komets speed against the toughness of Flint. Goaltending is equal. ( Sorry LGKomets, but even though Boucher has won two cups in a row, Nolan is a fine goaltender.)

Both teams proved that they can give up a lead and come back. I think the first goal of the game is going to be huge in determining the winner.

Mon, 05/10/2010 - 5:06pm

Alan, both teams can come back but the first goal is huge? I understand what you mean, but sounds strange reading what you put...

Mon, 05/10/2010 - 9:38pm

Well Shoot!! If they would have made that empty net shot a little earlier--I would have been right with the 3-1 prediction. Just glad I was right with the win. Keep at it Komets!!!
