INDEPENDENCE, Mo. -- Wow, the Independence Events Center is one awesome arena. There isn't a bad seat in the house. Everything is close. It's a bit like U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington, Ill., but nicer. If they were to build L.C. Walker Arena in Muskegon, Mich., again today, it would end up looking like this I'd bet.
And I'm a sucker for having a band outside playing when you walk into the building.
Thanks to Greg Rajan for having me on his podcast -- click here -- and you can listen to us talk at length about the Komets' series with the Missouri Mavericks.
The Mavericks lead 2-0 in the best-of-seven Turner Conference finals, heading into tonight's game.
