before i was able to get my hands on NYR season tixx, i had an islanders mimi-pack. I made sure to wear the other teams uni every game i went to (id either have say a Dallas or STL jersey, or i would borrow a friends).
I never wore my Rangers jersey to a game at the Colisseum, but that doesn't mean the Islander-hater inside me wasn't trying to come out. I went to a few Isles games last year, and every time the other team scored I couldn't help but yell, "Yes!" and pump my fist a bit, maybe even jump out of my seat a tad but then catching myself and sitting back down. Got a lot of dirty looks from the Islander faithful.
No way, I met his dad and thats not him. I was lucky one day and ran into him and his dad in NYC during the offseason where his dad was signing the book that he wrote about Kovy. It is one of my favorite hockey items that book with both Kovalev and his dads auto on it, good stuff.
