Why isn't it the Walleyes?

Fired up in Toledo

TOLEDO, Ohio -- I can't remember being this excited about a regular-season Komets road game in a long time.

It must because I've written so many times about games in Toledo without ever having been here. Plus, having grown up in the Detroit area, Toledo hockey was always on my mind a little bit.

Interesting note: I'm right by the Toledo Speedway and my racing friend tells me that not only is it awesome to drive there, but you could probably fit Baer Field inside of it.

I will be back during the game with plenty of updates on the Komets vs. the Walleye.

Speaking of which, why isn't it Walleyes? That is plural of the fish.
