Thanks to Larry for the suggestion which I stole. LOL.
Games 1 and 2 against the Knights. I don't care what anybody says, Game 2 in Atlanta was the best playoff game I saw that season. It was far better than Game 3 overtime against San Diego in Fort Wayne. Too bad 99 percent of the fans in Fort Wayne didn't get to see that game because it was a classic. Probably the highest-quality Komets' game I've ever covered.
The Northern Indiana Convertible Club is hosting the 2nd Annual Charis House Cruise-In on Saturday from 1pm - 4pm.
For a $5 entry fee you may enter your vehicle in this event. The proceeds will benefit the Charis House Campaign Fund. We are also planning on having tours of the facility so the public may gain a better understanding and see first hand the way the lives of women and children are changed in a caring, Christ centered recovery program.
There will be other activities planned for the kids and at the end of the event there will be several unique awards presented.

Been at a few concerts like that, but I've always wondered what it would be like to have everyone sing the National Anthem for once instead of just taking it for granted. Seriously not sure I could handle it. What a moment last night.
Both teams, Boston and Buffalo, gave the fans a double stick salute after the game.
