  1. Welcome to the Forums, CaliGurl. I wish your first time for Ice Bears hockey wasn't in the middle of the pandemic. The experience will be somewhat scaled back from the usual 3-5,000 enthusiastic fans and the up-close and personal interaction with the team you'll normally get at the Coliseum. That aside, it should be an exciting time for your boys. The food and drink is pretty good, if you don't mind typical sports arena prices and the the restricted options this season. You may want to consider eating before the game on Market Square or Gay Street just across the Church Avenue bridge

  2. Might have been more if the auction had been in-person rather than on-line- the competitive adrenaline is so much more intense when bidders are sitting in sections 218 and 221 of the VBC. Doc

  3. Nice. Glad to see the fan experience was improved for you. Aside from the disaster Knoxville has put on the ice, their enforcement and the fans' adherence to the protocols has been pretty good so far. I will say if a fan went to a game based on the feeling safe based on stated protocols, they don't have much to complain about from what I've seen. Glad you all are getting the experience you expected in Macon.

  4. No idea. Both goalies disappeared, and Carr's only comment was that they were gone for a couple of weeks. Brancik was missing. Roy was missing. The other new forward that came in at the same time (name escapes me) was missing. I can't figure out how many you are allowed or not allowed. It's roster roulette.

  5. Present company included. Back in the day, when "Star Wars" first came out, I bought a Darth Vader mask (still have it somewhere in my garage). I didn't have the money to buy a full DV outfit, so I had a black cassock, put a black ski vest on backwards, wore black gloves and my Air Force flight boots, and used a small cassette tape recorder (yep, those were the ancient days) on which I had taped a Bird ventilator to mimic DV;s breathing- as I am short, they called me "Dwarf Vader"!

  6. Best guess? Covid or protocol issue. The two types of transactions that don't seem to get announced this season. Nothing concrete to base that on though.

  7. By William Douglas @WDouglasNHL / NHL.com Staff Writer Leo Thomas said he was surprised to learn that he was the first Black coach in the Southern Professional Hockey League when Macon hired him May 23, 2018. He was more surprised to discover that he wasn’t the first Black coach to lead a team from that city, known more for giving the world Little Richard, Otis Redding and the Allman Brothers Band than being an incubator for hockey coaches of color. https://www.nhl.com/news/macon-popular-hub-for-developing-black-hockey-coaches/c-321685772?tid=304325462 View the full article

  8. As far as melkert I never even seen him behind the bench I do know he was here and helped with practices I believe it was a difference in coaching. They simply just didn't get along it was very hush hush so who really knows what truly happened

  10. It's all part of an evil plot hatched by the K-Bears front office. They are systematically luring unemployed low-level minor league coaches one-by-one to their organization, making each one disappear in turn until they've eliminated all competition. It's the team's only remaining hope to return to the top of the SPHL heap.

  11. Just curious- why were Guertler and Pierog not suspended for the same infraction as Thrower? 20:00 Josh Thrower Fighting, 5 min 20:00 Josh Thrower Fighting (Not During Periods of Game), 10 min 20:00 Gabe Guertler Fighting, 5 min 20:00 Gabe Guertler Fighting (Not During Periods of Game), 10 min 20:00 Stephen Pierog Fighting, 5 min 20:00 Stephen Pierog Fighting (Not During Periods of Game), 1

  12. I would bet there was at least a 30% non-mask contingency in Knoxville this weekend. If you looked to the south end, I could almost count on one hand the number of people wearing masks.

  13. The ironic thing with this is the fact that JP Mackay, the team's game announcer, has never worn a mask at a game and makes no effort to socially distance himself when he's on the ice doing game promos with fans and team personnel (at least from the point of view of the game camera - which can't see him when he is seated during gameplay). Seems like it would be hard to enforce the heavily advertised rule when the most visible member of the organization doesn't follow it. IMHO
