1. Location- Los Angeles, formerly San Diego, formerly Queens, formerly Albany for school and born and raised in Seaford, Long Island

2. Favorite Current Islander- Tavares/Grabner

3. Favorite Former Islander- Always liked watching Ziggy and Peca, but Bates is my favorite for 1 reason (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9EnQ262BIWk)

4. What other teams in the NHL do you root for?

This is gonna sound lame, but I have 2 favorite teams, Isles and Wings. When I was a kid I was more into baseball (can't stand it now) and the reason I got into watching hockey was seeing Yzerman play one night. After that started watching more Red Wing games. Since I was 20 min from the Coliseum (and the Isles sucked so tickets were cheap) I'd go to Isles games A LOT and they've always been my hometown favorite team. I have gear for both teams, I root for both, I stream their games simultaneously....whatever, love 'em both.

5. Other sports you enjoy? What other sporting teams do you root for?

NY Giants all day every day (not a Jets hater, root for them too, just not the same). Love the Mets and follow them, but tired of baseball.

6. Anything else you care to share?

I honestly don't think there's an individual in professional sports that I hate more than that guy.

1. Location- East Lansing, MI but home is Long Island

2. Favorite Current Islander- Don't know yet!

3. Favorite Former Islander- Don't know yet!

4. What other teams in the NHL do you root for? None. Considered rooting for the Devils because I really don't like the Rangers but I can't leave my hometown team hanging! Have always said if I started to follow hockey I'd almost definitely be an Isles fan.

5. Other sports you enjoy? What other sporting teams do you root for? Mets, Jets, Knicks, and MSU Spartans

6. Anything else you care to share? A new hockey fan with a lot to learn got into it a little bit this postseason and even went to a Rangers-Capitals game (free ticket) I liked the atmosphere for sure but it didn't feel quite right...I bleed orange and blue and green and white...why on earth would I want to throw red in there to mess it up?!? Go Islanders and hope to learn a lot this upcoming season and attend my first Islanders game (the Ranger game was my first NHL game ever)

My story:

Always a huge Mets, Knicks, Jets fan. Also a St. John's Red Storm fan.

Summer of '94 me and two of my best friends from HS had been working at the same place. After work we'd either go to one of our houses and drink beer or go to the school yard and drink beer LOL. All three of us where big Knick fans and their playoff run was great. But they were also big hockey fans, one a Rangers fan and the other a Devils fan while I couldn't care less about the sport.

I enjoyed watching the two of them fight/argue all through the ECF that year and the games really where great. Obviously NY beat NJ and went on to win cup. After both the NBA and NHL seasons where over I admitted to the both of them that I enjoyed the game more than I thought I would and would be interested in watching more Big question was which team would I root for....

I've always been someone who despised the bandwagon jumper. At the time many of my Mets fan friends switched over to the Yankees and far too many people where on Jordan's d***. So there was NO CHANCE I was gonna all of a sudden become a Rangers fan. I would be a huge hypocrite if I did. Otherwise I most likely was gonna be a Rangers fan one way or another if I ended up enjoying the NHL.

Devils? Not happening. No offense to NJ but I'm a New Yorker born and raised and besides it would sort of be a bandwagon move since they where a top team. All of a sudden I thought of the Islanders. I thought: Hold it, I lived on LI with my girl for a little while and hell my grandparents lived on the Island. I'm not a Long Islander but I could see this. Yeah, I can root for them. OK, I'm an Islanders fan!

First few years I followed them the big narrative was 4 young defenseman with big time potential (forget the names) and a stud goal scorer in ziggy Palfy.

The next few years I think I followed the ownership and coliseum situation more than anything and I'll never forget the unbelievable story of John Spano, the guy who practically tried to buy the team with monopoly money, ugh...

Probably the only time I really got into the team (prior to this season) was the year they brought in Yashin and Peca although I remember being PO'd that they traded Luongo (who sounded like he had a higher upside than Depietro and certainly had a higher floor). The 1st round series against Toronto was EPIC. Everyone around me knew I was a huge sports fan but they never saw me yelling and banging on my table over a hockey game. That was a first.

By the time Peca returned from the injury and Yashin was having a fall out with everyone and they gave Dipietro like a 90 year extension I started to watch less and less hoping the entire situation would eventually improve either with or without Wang and with them getting out of that HORRID situation with SMG (what was the name of the company that held the colisium rights, SMG right? )


Last year's playoff series was incredible and can't wait for the begining of the '13-'14 season. Oh, and Brooklyn sounds enormous for the franchise!! As someone who used to travel from Bayshore to Brooklyn many years ago I know it isn't that bad of a trek. And if you're closer to the city than say, that Bayshore/Amityville/Babylon area it's not a long trek at all.

Sorry for the long post.

LGI!!
