    Our team is the Toledo Storm. They're part of the ECHL. Which league are the Komets in?

    I'm so jealous! We haven't been to a game yet this year. Just doesn't seem to be the time

    Have fun! I'll be thinking of you while we're watching Harry Potter!

    Heather, do you ever catch NHL games? Have you been to any Blue Jacket games? My city is still grieving the loss of the Winnipeg Jets. Almost 10 years ago! We have the Moose now who are part of the AHL, but it just ain't NHL hockey. Hockey is just so much a part of the culture here. Every tiny little town has an arena.

    The Komets are part of the UHL league, I believe. This is the first game for us this year. We just needed a break. Things have been all work and no play for all of us the past few weeks. I will update you on the game Sunday night.....

    NHL games are on TV all the time, but sadly I've never been to one. The Blue Jackets aren't in the NHL.

    I just love the smell of the ice! It's seriously such a turn on for me!

    One thing that mystifies me about hockey. A guy gets beaten to a pulp, passes out on the ice, and people applaud when he peels himself off the ice and gets up?! ***** If you're injured enough to lose consciousness, stay down! Let them carry you off the ice on a stretcher. Maybe it's a guy thing?

    Deespoohbear - am going to a QC Mallards game tonight. They are in the same league as the Komets. I think the Mallards played in Fort Wayne recently. They have been on a losing streak - I think the Komets beat the *&% out of them!

    Went to my first hockey game last night. Saw a T-shirt that said:
    "Wipe off the blood and get back in the game".
    Hard to believe we have our own little semi-pro team right here in town. Also hard to believe the poor guys are on such a losing streak (last night was their 7th loss in a row). But we still had a blast just being there. I didn't know a thing about hockey, but those guys sure have GUTS!

    Heather, just got home from the game!! Wow what a game. The Komets were down 3-2, came back to score and tie the game. Game ended in a shootout that the Komets won!!!!! There was a fight 7 seconds into the game! I am thinking what could of happened in 7 seconds? Hubby says it is probably from a previous game. Anyway, had a blast and got our money's worth too!!! Can't wait to go back.....

    It's very addicting! That's what's nice about having a minor league team in your city! Not so much $ for a night of good entertainment!

    Glad you had a good time! SOunds great! I love a good hockey fight!
