    Check out today's story on the Komets, who are off to a 2-0-0 start this season. We explore how and why the captain, Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock, has looked so good, so far this season.

In search of the Cup

The Komets have two players, Brett Smith and Jamie Milam, who helped Bossier-Shreveport to the CHL's Presidents' Cup before that team folded last spring.

I thought it was interesting that they weren't sure where the Cup was now.

Well, the CHL has it, and it's about to go on a mini-tour for some former Mudbugs to spend some time with it.

It will go to Rapid City soon, where Jeff Kryzakos, Shawn Limpright and Michael Couch will get their championship rings.

And there will be a "Mudbugs Night" at a Texas game soon, too.

I don't know yet whether there will be a similar function in Fort Wayne, but I sure hope so.

As for who is paying for the rings? The former Bossier-Shreveport owners, Tommy and Leslie Scott.
