So I proudly wore my Tavares Jersey as I rode the LIRR from NHP station to the Barclays Center for the Nets home opener...
Very positive response, tons of people on the train taking an interest and asking me questions. At the game it spurred quite a few conversations and comments. Brooklynites are going to embrace this team, every European I saw at the game was asking me about the Islanders and can't wait for the team to get there. I even got a few rangers fans telling me wearing it to a Nets game was inappropriate. I am pretty sure I was the only Isles jersey in the arena.
The arena itself is GORGEOUS, Upper deck is a bit steep, which creates a great feeling of being on top of the action, but might take some getting used to for a hockey game. Corner upper deck reminded me of when I saw a Raptors game in Toronto, but better... more intimate.
It's not the coliseum but i don't think sitelines will be a problem for the reduced seats.
The challenge is going to be making the place "home" I have a bad feeling it's going to have a feel similar to seeing the Nets/Devils at the Izod.
