You Know You Are An Islanders Fan When....

This board needs a fun thread for everyone to stay loose and have some fun so with that. Post your best and funniest things you can come up with.

You know you are an Islanders fan when.....

1. You consider the Isles a playoff contender, then the front runner for the lottery pick, then have them going deep in the playoffs all within a span of 2 weeks

2. You notice every single piece of Islanders gear in any TV show or movie no matter how small it may be

Hmmm. I will give it a try.You know your an Islanders fan when you follow the draft prospects a year before the draft.

You know you are an Islandes fan when you say there is always a next year, every single year.
Lemme try and think of more.

You know you are an Islanders fan when

-You call the Coliseum your second home
-You know who Chris Botta is
-You used to or still do visit islanderspointblank.com at least 6 times a day
-You try to figure out why you are a fan of this team on a weekly basis
-You have discussions with friends about how many cups the Isles could have won if they did not have Milbury as their GM

You know your an Islander fan when your coworkers didn't know the Islanders still had a team. (I live in Jersey and this is 100% true)

You know your an islander fan when you root for other teams in the stanley cup finals because there allstars were once Islander draft picks.

1. Anyone who is not singing glowing praise of DP is a hater.

2. Any and all issues can be solved by adding a grinder, a stay-at-home d-man, or a sniper for our 1st line center.

1. Any goal that Dipietro lets in is a bad one.

2. Any save that Dipietro makes deserves a sarcastic cheer.

You know you're an Islander fan when you talk about who they are going to draft 10 games into the season.

You know you're an Islanders fan when you or someone in your immediate family has a Fisherman jersey hanging in the closet, and it hasn't left the closet for 15 years.

You know you're an Islander fan when you become enraged when you found when someone voted no on August 1st because all they heard was "higher taxes"

As a Cleveland Browns fan and Islanders fan with eerily similar fan bases, go to Youtube, type in "Factory of Sadness" and click on the first link that pops up.

That sums everything up for me.

The only difference is, at least the Browns fans have a new factory of sadness.

You know you're an Islanders fan when you have season tickets in Rows S or T in the 300s and expect a Mesothelioma diagnosis any minute now.

You know you're an Islanders fan when you have no choice but to peepee in a trailer.

You know you're an Islanders fan when you have Razor Ramon as your security guard.
