Komets Pics

Here are a few photos from last night at Memorial Coliseum. I teamed up with News-Sentinel photographer Ellie Bogue to cover the Fort Wayne Komets' Turner Cup championship-clinching victory over the Muskegon Lumberjacks. Ellie and I came up with a pretty good plan to get everything in, including the video (More on that later). I haven't seen her pictures yet, but I'm sure she did the great job that she always does covering the game. It was fun following the K's this year, but now we're on to the next thing, and if I wouldn't have worked until 4:30 this morning I'd be on Pit Road at Indy right now (as of this writing) getting ready for Pole Day for the Indy 500.

Check out News-Sentinel.com for more photos, slideshows, the great sports writing by Blake Sebring and Reggie Hayes and our video content from the playoffs.


In any case ... here are the pics.
