Funny Story

Before I write this let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I am a writer for SB Nation's Yankees Blog....Pinstripe Alley.

I am a very big Rangers fan, but I really don't hate the Islanders THAT much (big Jason Blake, Kenny Jonnson, Mike Peca fan, but hate the rest basically)

ANYWAY, I was at the Islanders Maple Leafs game on the 23rd and I figured I'd share this story with you.

I know a scorekeeper who works for the coliseum and I got to meet the players on the Islanders.

I also got to do this back in 07 Rangers and Islanders I met both.

Here's a few notes:

-Brendan Witt is HUGE and he growled at us

-Gervais is awesome. He nodded at us, shook our hands, and asked how we were.

-Biron is hilarious. The teams equipment manager asked how he was and he yelled out in his thick accent "TERRIBLE, I DIDN'T LIKE THE LAST SONG!" (songs of the practice)

-Everyone else seemed to ignore us/nod at us

 On the Rangers side, back in 07, Jagr was the biggest jerk ever.
