I'm at the All-American Hockey League game between the Evansville Icemen and the Battle Creek Revolution, and I'm one of the few at Memorial Coliseum.
About 4,300 tickets are out. But you have to remember, around 3,500 of those were tickets given to Komet season-ticket holders.
I've even heard those numbers are a little inflated.
As for how many people are actually in the building -- about 1,200.
How's the level of play? Well, it's akin to what I see at McMillen Arena on Sunday nights, though with more hitting. These guys try hard, but there's not much skill. They're slower than IHL players. They can't handle the good passes. But they do play physically around the net.
Battle Creek is up 3-0 8:57 into the first period.
Still, it's hockey, so it's enjoyable for me.
