I just didn't want to take a header on Memorial Coliseum ice, and I didn't while refereeing the game between the Komets Legends and the Detroit Red Wings Alumni, won 8-5 by the Red Wings.
Thanks for the boos. That's a badge of honor in Fort Wayne, right? I would say it wasn't quite a Jim Duhart boo. But it was better than a boo for Adam Russo.
Normally, the thing I feel worst about is if I get in the way of the play. That happened and resulted in Joey Kocur hip-checking me. How cool is that?
As for the goal I waved off in the third, it wasn't even close, even if Dustin Virag thought it was enough to put me in a headlock. Wait, why didn't I give him a misconduct? I told Virag, "You never did shoot it hard enough." Well, except for that Cup-winning goal in 2003.
Anyway, I will have a story on all this Sunday, which I think you will enjoy.
Thanks to the Komets for letting me participate.
