truth is most of uticas people would rather sit on their azz all day and collect welfare. Why would you want tax money to pay those lazy clowns.....

As Cliffy said a long time ago, we needed an AHL Hockey team in Utica before other businesses would even consider moving here. I guess now that we have an AHL team this opens the door for other business including a chip plant. Heck with the Utica sign erected, anyone should be able to find Utica, even when it is dark out... AHL Hockey is exactly what Utica needed to attract new business to the area. Go Utica!!

Heh wait til they go on a losing streak. Then you'll see fans walking out or not showing up for games. They won't last 3 years...

judging by the atmosphere down there today, people cant wait for the season to start. alot of changes to the aud, bringing the old girl up to date. real food at the concessions, two new bars down stairs. video boards and new sound system.... will be a whole differant experiance than the devils era.....

Excited but cautious. Got my tix today and was a little surprised that Rob Esche was not greeting everyone that walked in or went to choose their seats. He has to be out front and sociable to EVERYONE for this to work. A big caution to the organization - DO NOT HIRE TED FAUSS in any capacity.! His ego is far larger than his talent and experience.. not a team 1st type of guy.. he's all for him.
Other than that.. Let's Go Comets!!

Back in the day I used to stop @ The Columbia for a quick 3 beers for a little buzz and then walk over to The Aud. Then in between periods I go to the Horton Room for more beers. And after the game, go to Tinys for the final knockout punch. Those were the days !

Unlike most out there, I'm glad and in support of Topix. It's a great place to keep all you negative, depressed and sad people to come close and share each other's feelings of anger over our community, plus it keeps you away from the "positive" blogs out there. It's sort of like one, massive prison out on an island...I love it!

GO COMETS!!!
